Camiguin is an island province located in the smattering of islands in the center of the Philippines. Administratively, however, it forms part of Northern Mindanao, the large landmass of Southern Philippines. In a country full of tropical paradise islands, Camiguin takes one of the top spots.
The island is very easy to travel around in. It has relatively decent infrastructure with regard to accommodations and beach resorts, a highway circulating the island, and built-up tourist attractions. It’s a volcanic island and many come here to experience the hot and cold springs, see the lush jungle, enjoy pristine waterfalls and beaches, taste some sweet tropical fruits, and wind down in the slow pace of island life.
Entry to the island is either via air or water. Camiguin Airport is served by daily flights from Cebu, the transport hub of Southern Philippines. From Manila, visitors can either connect in Cebu or fly to Laguindingan Airport, the main entry point for Northern Mindanao. From there, visitors will connect via road to Cagayan de Oro towards Balingoan Port to catch any of the regular ferries to Camiguin.
Many parts of the Philippines including Camiguin have their dry season in the months of January to May. Temperatures are ideal during the first three months of this window. April and May can get unbearably hot and it is the high summer season for the entire country. Airports, seaports, and the tourist attractions themselves can get especially crowded during this time of the year.
