White Island – Camiguin

White Island in Camiguin is a two kilometers off the coast of Agoho, Mambajao.  It has a C shape, sometime curve. Its shape changes, depending on the ocean Tide.  In these days you can visit the island anytime you like, because before, the island will be submerged if its high tide.

The Island has a great view of Mt. Hibok-hibok and Old Vulcan.  It has no trees so its ideal for sun bathing.  It has a very fine white sand that can rival with Bantayan Island and Boracay.

Sunken Cemetery – Camiguin

Sunken Cemetery is lying 20 feet underwater in Barrio Bonbon, Catarman, Camiguin. It’ s the remains of Mt. Vulcan. According to local historians, Mount Vulcan had four historic eruptions. The first one was in 1827 but records of this eruption were nil. The second one was in 1862 when thick ashes from the crater flowed and overtook people who were fleeing towards the sea, resulting in 326 fatalities. The third one started in 1871. The years after the destructive eruption of Mount Vulcan,the Sunken Cemetery was visible during low tide.  But Mount Vulcan erupted again in 1948 until 1953 sinking the whole area deeper.  To mark the community cemetery, a large cross was built on the solidified lava in 1982. The Corals has now encrusted the tombstones that can be explored by snorkelers and scuba divers.
