Camiguin one of world’s best island destinations
Hemispheres, the in-flight magazine of United Airlines published in December:
As the temperature drops in the Northern Hemisphere, a certain flight impulse takes hold in travelers’ hearts. So, to help facilitate your escape, we offer a dozen of the world’s best island destinations—from tropical to temperate, and classic to unexpected.
One of the 12 islands presented is Camiguin:
Sometimes one volcano simply isn’t enough. Sometimes you need more—seven, for instance. And if so, Camiguin is your place. A small, stunningly beautiful volcanic island province northeast of Mindanao, Camiguin offers a vibrant and hospitable native culture, immaculate beaches, quiet nights, natural hot and cold springs and plenty of great and unusual diving opportunities (including, rather eerily, a community graveyard that sank during an eruption in 1871). The one remaining active volcano, Mount Hibok-Hibok, affords daring hikers breathtaking views of the surrounding islands—but if its steaming peak is a little too hot for you, visit Katibawasan Falls, a serene (if very cold) 250-foot cascade lined with orchids and lush ferns.
