Day 2: Camiguin Tour

After White Island, we went back to Secret Cove Resort to eat our breakfast and pack our things.  We need to check out early for our last leg of tour.

Itinerary for the day: Buy pasalubong, the famous pastel of Mambajao, Camiguin, Katibawasan falls, Camiguin Animal Breeding Center & Ostrich Production Center, Giant Clam Culture and Lunch at J&A Fish Pen Restaurant. We no longer include Mantigue Island since we already went to White Island.

We were not able to buy pastel in their branch because it is not yet available so we proceeded with our tour and will just buy in the port.  Anyway, you can buy pastel almost everywhere; the only difference is the price.

Second stop was Katibawasan Falls, it was the tallest falls that I’ve ever seen so far. Since we’re going back to CDO after the tour we did not swim. We just took some pictures and went straight to Camiguin Animal Breeding Center & Ostrich Production Center.

We were not able to experience snorkeling in Giant Clam Culture because the waves are too high; I am not a good swimmer so I do not want to take risk. 

But there are clams in the center so you will be able to see the different clams that are available in the Philippines. There are kids who assist and educate us about clams. They are all good and friendly. I am so happy that there are still kids who are passionate in conserving our environment.

Read: UPMSI Bolinao Marine Laboratory - the clams that we've seen here came from this laboratory. 

Entrance fees:

Katibawasan Falls (P15 – adult P6 -children)
Mantigue Island (P550/boat P20-entrance fee P50 – snorkeling fee)
Camiguin Animal Breeding Center & Ostrich Production Center
Giant Clam Culture (P25 per pax, P150 tour guide)

Last stop is J&A Fishpen.


  1. Hi! San po kayo nagbili ng mga pasalubong niyo? May madadaanan ba on the way? Or sa mismong market kayo bumili?

    Gumagawa po kasi ako ng itinerary ko about sa Camiguin.

    Salamat. :))

  2. Hi! if kumuha ka ng tour, idadaan ka nila sa bilihan ng pastel or souvenir shop, if di naman, marami ka rin madadaan ng souvenir shops, meron sa walkway of old volcano and katibawasan falls.

    meron din sa port pero expensive, much better pa bumili ng pastel sa SM or Limketkai kesa sa port. :-)
