After all the hassles given by Cebu Pacific Airline, we arrived Camiguin safely. Camiguin is an island province in the Philippines located in the Bohol Sea, about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) off the northern coast of Mindanao. It is politically part of the Northern Mindanao Region of the country and formerly a part of Misamis Oriental province. Some thought that Camiguin is part of Vizayas, nope, it’s part of Mindanao and IT IS SAFE to go there.

Visiting the Old Guiob Church Ruins

Catholic mass still held every Sunday here.

The trees beautifully lined-up outside the ruins.

After Guiob, we head down to Tuasan Falls and I was expecting a quite deep water BUT the government develop it and covered it with stones. Look how shallow it is now.

When there are ladies watching us and my brother this he’s hunk!

No matter how shallow the water is, nevertheless, we all had fun!

Tuasan in full view.

We went to see the Sunken Cemetery before the sunset falls.

The Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin Island marks the swept remains of the island’s rested locals. Driven underwater when Mt. Vulcan Daan erupted in 1870’s, the large cross has served the town’s people, as well as the tourists, a scenic spot to memorialise the departed buried there.

To go to the cross, you have to hire a boat going there without using a paddle but a rope from the entrance to the cross.

Steps to the top of the cross but climbing is NOT allowed.

The boatman has a photography skill. He let us do a giant and midget pose!

Watching the incredible sunset!

The contrast makes the ocean looks metal.
