Camiguin Island is always been one of my top local tourist destinations. The natural scenic beauty and wonders of this beautiful island is what I always love about this place. My family and I really enjoyed our trip when we spent our Camiguin island escapade a few weeks ago.
It is one of the Philippines many beautiful islands of untouched beauty. Its natural landscapes and breathtaking seascapes have never ceased to amaze visitors like us as we discover the highlights of the island’s unparalleled and picturesque beauty.
Camiguin Island boasts of many unique places of interests for both the local and foreign tourists. The island is a perfect getaway place where one can endlessly soak in the sand, sea and sun, marvel at some historic and culture-rich landmarks. Take a look at some of the tourist spots that we visited in Camiguin:
Ardent Hot Spring is one of my favorite tourist spots in Camiguin. The water has a temperature of 40 degrees centigrade and serves as a natural hot spa in the locality. The pool is four-tiered with varying depths and warmth; the shallowest is the hottest and it is now located at the bottom portion. The water springs from the bowels of Mt. Hibok-Hibok. This place is good for those who want to dip into a hot spring and relaxes the body as well as the mind. Surrounding the hot spring are cottages, restaurants and accommodation facilities, which make it ideal for overnight stay.
Katibawasan Falls is a 250-feet high majestic cascading waterfall located at the foot of Mt. Timpoong. A large basin has been formed below the falls and it is carved out from solid rock from centuries of battering by the falls and serves now as a natural swimming pool, a favorite nook of both locals and tourists alike. This is what I also love about this falls. It has also rock picnic tables, seats and cookout facilities for your picnic needs.
One of Camiguin’s tourist attractions, White Island is a sand bar blessed with powdery white sand which is shaped as a letter C or and I, depending upon the ocean tide. Aside from basking under the sun, one can also swim around and snorkel at the surrounding seas of White Island. From the White Island, one can have a view of the Mt. Hibok-hibok. Huge umbrellas are available to provide shelter to guests who come to frolic in the waters and to sunbathe.
Many years passed since I last stepped on its soil, yet the island still retain its grandeur, simplicity and peaceful ambiance with a welcome addition of cemented roads and the provision of more accommodations, restaurants and the availability of viable transportation.
With all of these places found in just one island, tourists are splurged with the abundance of unspoilt naturescapes. Camiguin Island offers outdoor adventures for the water-loving tourists. Snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving, trekking, mountain climbing, basking under the sun on the beach fronts, cold splashes under the waterfalls and island hopping.
They are out to give tourists the time of their lives as Camiguin Island uncovers and reveals the beauty unmarred by progress and development. Spending your holiday in Camiguin means quiet and peaceful holidays. Just enjoy the natural beauty of the island and relax.
