I'm giving this place a total of 5 star for the record! Mantigue is truly a paradise within a paradise!! The sand is just pure black and you cant say no to the cold and soothing water in the beach. You can also enjoy checking out some cool corals and fish for a dive too! 👍👍👌

One of the "musts" on Camiguin. The island is tiny - actually quite beautiful, but extremally exploited: boat by the boat, tourist by the tourist. Fee for both snorkeling and using the bench! Overcrowded, with almost nowhere to hide from the sun. Dirty. Boat trave is nice, but remeber to protect your nose and mouth.

A lot of sea weeds scattered along the shoreline together with some broken corals.Maintenance to this island was somehow a bit questionable as to where the environmental fee goes if upkeep to the island was not met. Good for beach bumming, bring your own food, island price for foods and drinks can be pricey. Available activities are being offered in... More

I took a Moto-rella, and met a guy, who was also traveling alone. We decided to split the boat ride to the island. As this was a weekday, the island only had a handful of visitors. I rented snorkels, and decided to swim around on my own. Saw many many sea creatures, fishes, and the underwater is like a grass... More

Amazing island, I consider it as a must see place. The colors of the water and the view from this island arw unforgotten. There's an area for snorkeling in the island which you need to pay for. The taxi boat takes about 20 min to get there, just make sure to have your snorkeling equipment before because there's no option... More

It is so magical under water. Lots of colorful fishes and corals. However I would suggest that they have a reliable guide from the island to educate divers with what's there and for safety also. Apart from that, everything is just perfect!

* Beautiful white sand beach * 550 peso for a round trip pump boat ride to the island for up to six people * 150 peso for snorkel gear - a must! You see plenty of fish in 3 foot deep water off the beach - but go just a little further out to the 4/5 foot deep water and... More

Camiguin itself lacks white sand beaches, but this island and nature reserve just a couple miles offshore, is blinding white sand just as fine as Boracay (and without all the sewage in the water). This is one of the true gems for nature lovers.

They have a marine sanctuary which is really nice and also offer scuba diving to explore the deeper corals. But be prepared to keep on opening your wallets because they charge you on every move! Upon arriving there they charge you for the boat, entrance fee and snorkels. When you reach the island, you have to pay another entrance fee... More
