We went to Camiguin Island in April 2008 for the first time. I thought, based on the pictures I've seen of it in airport lounges and ticket offices, it's an island surrounded by white sand beaches. I was wrong. Totally wrong. We had to go to a place called the White Island which looks like a long stretch of white sand in the middle of the sea. There's no vegetation there. During high tide, the island vanishes. One's visit to Camiguin will not be complete without going there. It's practically more than half of the Camiguin experience.
If one wants to get away from the bustle of the city, Camiguin is the place to go with its quiet ambiance and laid-back atmosphere. When we went there, there wasn't a single popular fast food joint to be found. Although tourists abound in their own cars, they are not enough to disturb the peace and quiet of the island. I say, it is ideal for writers and those who want to think and reflect.
