Not Boracay – this is Camiguin, the real thing
This is Camiguin! The little island in the southern Bohol Sea is slowly but steadily developing. While Boracay suffers from mass tourism, Camiguin attracts people who like the real things.
Camiguin for kite boarders
The white sandbar called “White Island” by tourists and “Medano” by the indigenous people is perfect for kite boarding. This small island continuously changes its shape and adapts to winds. There is always a wavy beach on the wind side and a quiet lagoon on the opposite side. During the Amihan season, like now, the calm side lays in the west towards Old Vulcan Daan. Later, during the Habagat season, it is quiet on the eastern side. And the best of all: there aren’t hundreds of kites in the air. Only your’s and those of your friends. You cannot yet rent kiteboarding equipment on our island, so its BYO!
|Wind, sun, sea and white sand||Good wind mostly in the afternoon|
|When wind is strong, jump over white island||No corals, no rocks.|

Camiguin sunset bars
Our beaches are white and black sand and volcanic rocks and cliffs. If you like a Blue Marguerita or a Dry Martini without a thousand noisy people and deafening disco sound, then go to one of the still few beach bars that offer serene sunsets and cocktails at still reasonable prices. Don’t expect low price happy hour syrups with more ice than drink, get the real thing in Camiguin. Photos courtesy of Balai sa Baibai on Agoho beach.
