Situated on the north coast of Mindanao, the tiny island of Camiguin is renowned for the friendliness of its people. It's also distinguished for having more volcanoes than municipalities. Regarding its attractions, the destination is a relaxation seekers paradise, where hot springs and stunning beaches are the order of the day. Visitors can climb Mount Hibok-Hibok, and snorkel through a sunken cemetery too, reading gravestones that were submerged in a volcanic eruption. Culture lovers should stop at some of the island's remaining colonial homes, buildings and churches. Santa Rosario Church in Sagay, and the San Nicolas de Tolentino Church in Mambajao are among the island's best churches.
