Born from seven volcanoes, the remote but beautiful island of Camiguin owes much of its beauty to its fiery origins.
The blackish sands of Camiguin’s beaches; the hot springs on the foothills of sleeping Mount Hibok-Hibok volcano; and the church ruins that testify to the rare explosions rained down by nature –— they’re all a part of Camiguin’s nature-getaway charm, tied together with the verdant overgrowth and the sea surrounding it all.
Camiguin is also a surprising Italian food destination, thanks to a community of expats who settled here and set up restaurants featuring their home cuisines. For homegrown eats, try the locally-grown lanzones fruit, or the cream-filled pastry pastel.
