The horrible history of camiguin created this extraordinary habitat of marine life. There was no fear or horror when you dive unto the sunken cemetery as large formations of corals covered the tombstones. There are only 2 spots i've been where there is a large...More

The Sunken cemetery story is also an amazing part of the Island. It sunk during a volcanic activity right in the Island.

They already have a small boat for you to go near the cross if you want to experience. Since it's my 3rd visit, we did not cross at all to save time.
