    Patuloy ang lokal na gobyerno ng Camiguin sa mahigpit na pagpapairal ng batas para mapangalagaan ang isla nito.

    Bukod sa Boracay, paboritong dayuhin ng mga turista ang Camiguin dahil sa berdeng paligid, malinis na mga kalsada, at malamig na simoy ng hangin.

    We spent a week in this island as part of our work and we couldn't be happier exploring it (the whole Camiguin Island) while providing service to the people. Traveling to this place took us 5-7 hours by boat; we got sun burnt literally in our faces; we ate more pork than seafoods (hahaha); we're just a few feet (Rural Heath Unit) from the sea; perfect sunset locations (i am the happiest); first time to see a part of the outlet of an active volcano in the shorelines leading back to the sea (boiling/hot sea water); and a few misadventures too!

    Road Trip In Camiguin The Island Born Of Fire

    Camiguin Island, being the second-smallest province in the Philippines made it very feasible for a whole day road trip. I had the chance to visit Camiguin Island last December with my fiance's family and we were able to check out the small yet very picturesque island in the country. With a rich history foreground, and several beaches to dwell on, I was giddy enough to join the trip.

    On our day one, we meet up in Cagayan de Oro and had around a 4-hour drive to Balingoan Port (Misamis Oriental). We then road a ferry for about 2 hours before we reached Benoni port in Camiguin. It was quite a ...
