Sunken Cemetery

The Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin Island marks the swept remains of the island’s rested locals. Driven underwater when Mt. Vulcan Daan erupted in 1870’s, the large cross has served the town’s people, as well as the tourists, a scenic spot to memorialize the departed buried there. PICT_20160405_163322.JPG

If you wish to go to White Island, my number 1 tip is to go early bc there’s no any trees out there they only offer big umbrellas and it’s quite expensive, its 200 pesos.
