Highlights of my day 2 in Camiguin were my visits to Mantigue Island, Giant Clam Sanctuary and Kibila White Beach, Tanguines Lagoon, Ostrich Breeding Farm, Katibawasan Falls, and Ardent Hot Springs, which I already blogged in detail in my previous posts.
Here are bits and pieces of more attractions that we visited, plus landscapes that caught my eye.
First off is this photo of a ricefield with the mountains (or volcanoes? or both) at its background. I loved how rustic this looked.
These photos were taken in Mahinog, the jump-off point to Mantigue Island.
Here’s my favorite among the set.
Note that there are no entrance fees to pay at this particular park.
Because Camiguin is home to an active volcano, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has a facility here to monitor Hibok Hibok. Kuya Criz recommended going here because it offers a good vantage point in seeing the province and the volcano itself.
We also went inside the facility where the staff gave me a quick history of Mt. Hibok Hibok and showed me photos of old Camiguin. There were information and photos too about the volcano’s eruption from 1948 to 1953.
A few meters from PHIVOLCS, I spotted a local riding a carabao so I asked Kuya Criz to stop and asked the old man if I can take his photo. He said yes.
And thus concludes day 2 of my Camiguin trip.
