Camiguin Island

Camiguin Island is an island province in the Philippines located about 10 km off the northern coast of Mindanao. It is the second smallest province in the country in both population and land area after Batanes. (source: Wikipedia

Enjoying Camiguin on a weekend is doable if coming from Cagayan de Oro. There are van transports that takes you directly to any destination on the island. Although a bit pricey compared to taking the usual separate bus and ferry but it is more convenient. For reference, I took the RR Van with their terminal located at Gaisano Carpark (Corrales Side). You can be there as early as 2AM to catch the 1st trip at Balingoan. One way trip will cost you P500.

So many things to do when you get on the island. The best way to enjoy the scenery is to rent a motorbike to get your way around. You can ask locals where you can rent one. Almost everyone on the island knows someone. Minimum motorbike rental is P500 for 24 hours. Not a bad deal at all!

For my ‘spontaneous’ itinerary, I just hopped on the motorbike with The Husband and stopped whenever we saw something interesting.

Here are a few photos of the beautiful spots you can enjoy at Camiguin.
