These attractions are next to each other and located in Barangay Cantaan in Guinsiliban, Camiguin's smallest municipality. Both are managed by Cantaan Centennial Multi-Purpose Cooperative (CCMPC) .
Entrance fee is only Php 25, which already includes an educational tour of the clam sanctuary. Note that this tour is done only around a man-made pool where some clams are housed. If you want to view the clams on their natural habitat, you have to pay an additional fee of Php 150.

So I was bound for home. I had duty waiting for me at the end of the day, and I was beating against time to not miss it for the roads. But before heading back to Benoni Port, I sweetly reminded my host of a promise she said that they would show me a sanctuary for Giant Clams along the way.
There were two spots of which I wanted to stop by before calling this trip goodbye. So we went off the roads and sailed on a motorcyle down a very steep 2 lane road to the secluded side of the island. And by steep I meant, 35-40 degree winding road.

The small and quaint island of Camiguin, dubbed "the island of fire" for its 7 volcanoes is one of my favorite travel spots in the Philippines. My housemates and I had an amazing 5 day vacation last June. You can see the whole of Camiguin in the panoramic photo I took on White Island. It is the perfect island for you if you like riding motorbikes and doing as much activities possible during your trip. You can easily go around the whole island in 2 hours! In between that time you will pass a lot of natural wonders which I'll discuss later on in detail. The island is filled with attractions but ...
