Visited this small island off the main island of Camiguin after lunch. It was quite sunny but the island offered refuge as it had trees all over and the visitors' area with tables and chairs was under the trees. Had a quick swim in the...More

Much better than Boracay, beach is very clean and with crystal clear water & white powdery sand. Food is available in the island, we just wish that you can stay there overnight.

Best for family with children. Water is shallow. Beach has rocks so a good idea to bring slippers. Not worth staying 4 hours. 1 to 2 hours is enough. Boat is P600 for the roundtrip (won’t wait for you, but will arrange a pick up...More

Another sand bar in Camiguin and they offer snorkling gears to go around the marine sanctuary in Mantigue Island. They have a place to buy drinks and a restroom.

I've been in Camiguin for couple of times but it's my first time to land this place of Mantigue Island with such a nice marine sanctuary where i enjoyed snorkelling. I will come back again with my family.

Simple worth it. We visited Mantigue Island last May and we definitely loved it. You can go snorkeling too as they have a fish sanctuary, although you will need to pay extra to the bangkero so they would take you there via bangka.

The best surprise in the Philippines! This is one of the best places to see the sea turtles up close. First, my advice is to rent your snorkeling gear from the main island of Camiguin. Catch a boat across to the sanctuary. Be sure to...More
