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

Never expected that this would be the highlight of our trip. The tiny island has a lot to offer aside from beach bumming, you can explore the mini forest, dive, snorkel and mingle with the locals. It is way better than White island. The tour guide who welcomed us is so funny and bubbly!

I will always be a fan of the beautiful Mantigue Island and its blue crystal clear seawater and powdery white sand. Definitely! A must-visit when you are in Camiguin, one can't and should not miss this amazing beauty that God has blessed Camiguin and its people with. As tourists, we should do our share keep them clean, no littering and... More

While Mantigue Island is nice, it proved to be a pocket drain. 1. you have to pay for your boat to the island. 2. pay for island fee. 3. pay for snorkeling fee at the sanctuary. 4. pay for boat fee to the sanctuary (same boat that took you to the island). while the first 3 was ok, the 4th... More
