I very much enjoyed my 5 day stay at Jasmin by the Sea. Camiguin island (Philippines best kept secret) is a volcanic island like Hawaii, so the beach in front of my unit was black. This is a bed and breakfast, with only 4 units, for couples who want to "get away from it all". At P600 per night its a great deal for backpackers travelling as paird. The village is only a P10 ride away; I can recommend the Pineapple pie slices from the various bakeries! This used to be a scuba resort, but the owners wound it back to a B&B; there is a PADI dive center "Johnny's Dive & Fun" just up the road for P8 by trike for those who wish to dive on the magnificent corals around the island.
Staff Mimi and Joel were very helpful and attentive ... Nice place, but don't expect "5 star" ...
You can catch a ship from Cebu to this island a couple of days in the week with comfortable aircon sleeping bunks. Try not to get scammed at the port; you can catch a Jeepney to the village for a few pesos after you push your way through the throng of taxi drivers and then catch a trike to Jasmin for just P10. Enjoy!
