Camiguin’s Eden: Mantigue Island
The Philippines is known all over the world for its great beaches. As a traveler and a beach bummer, I’ve only seen a few of them. From the famous beach of Boracay to its small version in Cavite, I certainly agree that the biodiversity of our archipelago is very rich and definitively world class.
From brown, black to white beaches, the Philippines is so blessed to have these alluring destinations! With my minimal list of the beaches I've soaked myself into; one divine shore still tops them all. It's the white sand beach of Mantigue Island in Camiguin.Camiguin is a small island just where you can access via roro. You can get a ride from the port of Cagayan De Oro.
Limited time is given to travelers to stay in the island to keep the serenity and cleanliness of Mantigue. We were only allowed to stay for four hours but I was able to roam around the island for approximately 25 minutes, plus some stops to take some photos.
You can take a plane ride from Manila going to Cagayan De Oro. Then take a tricycle ride to the port of Cagayan de Oro. You should be able to get a ride on a Roro going to Benoni Port. After arriving in Benoni Port, get a ride to the shore and have a boat ride there to Mantigue Island.
