2016 Road Trip #6 (Katibawasan Falls Camiguin)

This is our last destination, Its the only falls I know in Camiguin, We have plans to go also in the cold spring and hot spring but we don’t have time because we have to catch up the last trip of the barge because my friends have work by Monday.

Katibawasan Falls is a waterfalls located five kilometers southeast of Mambajao at the foot of Mt. Timpoong in the island of Camiguin. It measures about 250 feet which cascades to a rock pool surrounded by ground orchids, wild ferns, trees and boulders. Ice cold water provides an ideal summer splash to bathers and picnickers. The falls tumble down into a green pool, ideal for a refreshing swim. Giant ferns decorate the surrounding land, carpeting for space with huge trees and dropping vines. Rock picnic tables, seats and cookout facilities are available for use. Considered as one of the treasured gifts nature has bestowed Camiguin, the falls is maintained by the province and visitors are expected to pay a minimal entrance fee.

We didn’t stay long because the water is so cold and we have to head back to the resort to clean and dry ourselves before we check out.

 

Road Trip #5(Mantigue Camiguin Island)

Our 2nd Destination is Mantigue Island, Before thought that the white Island is best tourist spot in Camiguin because the 1st time i came visit camiguin we never heard about the island so i guess they just recently discovered it and they develop to add in their tourist destination.

Mantigue is a small island located about 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) off the coast of volcanic island province of Camiguin province in the Philippines. Also known as Magsaysay Island, it is about 4 hectares (9.9 acres) of greenery fringed with a gleaming white beach of powdery coral sand.[1] A fishing village is located in the northern side of the island. One side of the island is a white sand beach with corals offshore, and the opposite side provides a deep drop-off for snorkeling and diving.[2]

Mantigue Island can be reached by light water craft in 25–30 minutes from Brgy. San Roque in the town of Mahinog.

We go snorkeling in the other side of the island were it is prohibited for fishing but its allowed to see the corals and fish and also they have the giant clam, we hired a tourist guide who also owns a small boat. Unfortunately we don’t have a Go Pro camera so we didn’t able to take pictures to see the underwater fishes and corals.

 

2016 Road Trip #4 (Camiguin white island)

This is my second time in Camiguin Island the 1st time  was 2010 together with my 2 sisters and my other sisters friend. But this time I’m with my friends so i enjoyed more, I think we only spend less because we split the expenses and for a day you can go to 3 destination. Our 1st stop is The white island.

White Island is an uninhabited white sandbar located about 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) off the northern shore of Mambajao in the volcanic island of Camiguin in the Philippines. The island is generally horseshoe shaped, although the tides constantly resize and reshape its exact form. There are no trees or shelter of any kind, and it is composed solely of white sands.

We hire a small boat from the resort that we check in, we also rent a snorkel and a life jacket that we can use the whole day.
