Camiguin, Sunken Cemetery

Sunday, October 21, 2012


Early rise up, we traveled early morning to catch the schedule of the ferry going back to CDO. From Mambajao we started from the other side of Camiguin to complete the circumferential road of the island. Sunken cemetery is 5km east of of mambajao,  along the right side of the road you can find a gate with a signage GOING TO SUNKEN CEMETERY. If you really want to see it with a good light try to come before lunch until sunset, which you can capture the place with a dramatic colors of the day.


There is no traffic congestion in Camiguin, most of the transportation here is a single ride motorcycle, tricycle, quad cycle, and jeep. If you want to get more adventurous, motorcycle for hire is a common transportation you can get.
