Camiguin Island | Island of Fire

If you are planning to visit the Philippines, you sure don't want to miss the beauty of Camiguin Island. This little island is a gem. 
Back home, my family always take time off to go there almost every year during the Holy Week. It's definitely a great place to live, very peaceful and abundant.
The island-province of Camiguin is a pear-shaped volcanic island in the northern tip of Mindanao. It is approximately 90 kilometers north of the City of Cagayan de Oro. It is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay.
Camiguin is the smallest province in Northern Mindanao, with its land area pegged at 29,187 acres. It is composed of five towns, namely, Mambajao – the capital town, Mahinog, Guinsiliban, Sagay and Catarman. The island plays host to seven volcanoes, including the still-active Mount Hibok-Hibok.
