Sunset in Camiguin

Sunset in Camiguin

Sometimes you don't need a companion to travel. A view like this is great company and enough to give you one memorable trip.

I was blessed to go to one of the best travel destinations in the Philippines last year (for free thanks to my Dad), the Province of Camiguin, an island born of fire. I went there alone on my first day to be joined by my dad and his officemates the next.

I won't discuss it's history and all that sh*t here. I just want to share what I my most unforgettable experience there. To be honest, I was quite disappointed to find out that the only best thing in Camiguin is the White Island. Unless of course you have a lot of money to spend diving in Mantigue Island, then go visit there. We went to almost all of Camiguin's falls and springs (hot and cold) as you can easily go around the main island in a day.

The best part of my travel to Camiguin is capturing my first ever sunset. It happened on my first day alone on the island. It's so dramatic and almost perfect that I was swearing at myself for being ill-equipped at photography that I can't capture it right. But hey, since it's my first, for me it's perfect. :)


  1. Nightfall in Camiguin can be quite romantic, the calmness of the place makes it even more. You can only hear the waves crashing by the rocks and the wind blowing you ear. Not a very bad place to take you mind off things and just enjoy its calmness.

  2. true. i prefer small towns like this more than big cities. but despite being disappointed, i liked it there. especially at nighttime.

    The commute to and from Camiguin via Cagayan de Oro was very easy too! Keep it up. Hope you guys will improve the place more. :)


Any thoughts, reader?
