Mantigue Island

Diving in Camiguin

Between Benoni and Mambajao you’ll see Mantigue Island – sometimes called Magsaysay – offshore. A few fishing families live here, and a marine sanctuary means there’s still some good coral in the cordoned area and stretches of a pretty white-sand beach. A return trip to the island from the village of San Roque will cost P600. It’s also a popular dive site. The island usage fees – entrance P20, plus P120 for divers (P75 for snorkellers) – are usually included in dive packages.
