Camiguin Island is said to be "Born of Fire" for the province has seven volcanoes, including the famous Mount Hibok-hibok. Volcanic eruptions and land movements have and continues to create this spectacular island, which is full of natural wonders and historical riches.

The island is located at the northern tip of Mindanao. The island province is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay. -

How to get to Camiguin Island: 

From Manila take commercial flights to Cagayan De Oro City.  You can rent a taxi/van from the airport directly to Balingoan Port in Misamis Oriental or go to the bus terminal in Agora to reach Balingoan Port. Travel period depending on the traffic and your means of transportation is between 2 to 2 and a half hours.  Ferryboat ride from Balingoan Port to Benoni Port (the main point of entry to Camiguin Island) is about an hour.
