White Island – an uninhabited strip of white sand just a few kilometers away from Camiguin. It’s best to go early in the morning as there is little shade on this solitary islet. Mostly everybody makes their way to this sand strip instead.
Katibawasan Falls – a resplendent 60 meter waterfall, with a pool good for lounging around nature.
Ardent Hot Springs – this natural hot tub is more defined by the activities that go on around it. The hot spring itself encompasses only a small area while its surroundings plays host to concerts, cookouts, and campouts. A resort sits beside it.
Mount Hibok-Hinok – it is the tallest mountain in the province. It remains as one of Camiguin’s active volcanoes.
Sto. Niño Cold Springs – a bubbling pool of refreshing water that draws in crowds beacuse of the commercial setuo around it (karaoke joint, shops, and resorts).
Underwater Cemetery – a highlight of Camiguin, this cemetery became a watery graveyard in 1871 when the Old Volcano on the island erupted and changed the landscape. A white cross juts out from the sea, a mere replica of the original that is actually farther out and completely submerged.
Moro Watchtower – a former lookout point for Muslim crusaders who reportedly invaded Camiguin repeatedly to take its women. the watchtower was more massive in size, as women and children took refuge there while the men battled against the pirates. Now only a small section is left as a huge part of the watchtower was torn down to make way for the school that now surrounds the relic.
Enigma Art Gallery – this eclectic, eccentric art gallery cum guesthouse adds much character to the island. Filled with curios fashioned from the most improbable materials, this art house is a veritable gathering place for the creative energies that run through the island.
Soda Water – pool filled with fresh, clean, sparkling water. The Soda Water pool is surrounded by mountains and is a refreshing stop that’s cut away from the main road.
Mantigue Island – a four hectare white sand islet with a forest in the middle. It is four kilometers away from Barangay Mahinog, a popular dive spot.
