About
The old capital of Camiguin, with its cemetery, sunk under the sea. In the following years, the sunken land and the gravestones can still be seen. when the tide is low. But in 1948 until 1953, Mount Vulcan erupted again, sinking the whole area deeper, to around twenty feet. In 1982, a large cross was built on the solidified lava to mark the site that became the graves of the ancestors of the Camiguin people. It has now become the area know as the sunken cemetery.

The sand was black and sparky, but really fine. It was beautiful. We did not get to snorkel since my friends didn't want to. It is a really nice place to see the sunset though and just chill.

the place was very beautiful you need to pay for the environmental fee which was ok because while you go snorkelling you can see that the corals and the fish are taking care of

A very interesting drive we took the motorcycle tuk tuk
On arrival a very busy very small tourist market
At the rangers shop we met our guide and fitted out with snorkeling gear
Taken out in a boat 🚣‍♀️ to a drop off point where we swam out to the sunken cross
we also saw turtles plenty of fish a very small harmless sea snake
Overall a very full packed day
Highly recommend

What you see in the picture is what you will see, unless perhaps you scuba dive and explore the sunken cemetery. Quick stop for photo op only.

We came to visit this site, to see what nature can do . This area sank due to earthquake or Volcano activity. Interesting that the Cross is still up to inspire us. Worth the visit

Simply great snorkeling! Gigant clamps, lots of colorful fishes, hard and soft corals etc.

Before entering you will need a guide and to pay an entrance fee (150 pesos for a guide, 100 pesos pp entrance), talk to the people at the beach or the office in the other side of the road where you park your scooter. They also have equipment for rent. And fresh water showers to use after your snorkeling.

Full of history and culture. It shows the true nature of Camigueños, friendly and hospitable. I suggest to find a bankero (boat man) who really know the place history and who really are good in taking pictures. Our boat man (Joey) is a professional scenery photographer. We did not try snorkling but according to him it is a must. For sure we will try next time.

Beware of the boat ride operators that would offer you a ride to the cross. They would state the price of P50 per person but once you are already on the boat he would say the price is now P500. We decided NOT to go anymore and he got upset. He said bad words towards us and pressure us to continue. As we climbed the steps he even threw the wooden row towards our direction. We will never go back there again. I suggest that you should never asked for their services and just take photos from the view deck and purchase souvenirs from the small stalls on your way out. Overall,Camiguin is ok to visit but just be on guard so as not to get scammed.
