We decided to spend our afternoon here since our next stop was white beach sand which would still be too hot to visit. This was a good plan since there were tables with shades where you can relax. They can also cook you lunch if you want to eat here. The clam nursery is fascinating but lacking since there are... More

Fronting the beach is an area designated as a marine sanctuary for giant clamps. Out of the nine species of clamp around the world, Philippines have the seven of its kind, six found in the island.

If you're into marine biology, check this place out. If you're into seeing another mesmerizing angle of Camiguin, you should check this place out. This is a non-government funded project but assisted by Silliman University. I think it's a pretty educational attraction and it helps locals have jobs but what I am concerned about are the use of children as... More

One of the best sanctuaries we've visited! Lucky are those who live there for they have a swimming pool-like at their own backyard. As we walked our way going to the giant clams laboratory we were accompanied by Hello who cheerfully gave facts about giant clams. We were guided by Ken at snorkeling sites where we saw giant clams as... More

Nice snorkelling experience [my first ever], the coral reef was slowly recovering from storm damage, so not at its best. The giant clams are amazing - up to about a metre across.

Well, you are already in the island might as well visit all the places found in the travel brochure/map includind this one. But get ready for a long ride - winding and inclining roads, uphill downhill, blind corners and some rough roads as well. Very eerie roadside. Far from the highway. Even markers leading to said place are confusing. But... More

A little difficult to find if you are coming from the north of the island as there is only a signpost in the opposite direction. It is also then a bit of a hairy ride along a mostly dirt track to get here. The woman at the entrance make you feel bad for taking your own snorkelling gear and as... More

Your swim is limited to 45mins, but it is worth it because you get to see the giant clams which are a metre wide, and you get to learn about them. The snorkels for rent are high quality too, and I think all proceeds go to marine conservation efforts. Would recommend

In additon to the small entrance fee you will have to pay for a guide and if you have your own eqipment you will be forced to pay half of the rental fee for snorkeling equipment (strange). the guide does the snorkeling tour in a great hurry showing two fields of giant clams apparenty deposed there. there are some bassins...
