The sunken cemetery is one of the attractions of the island of Camiguin. It can be seen from the summit of the Old Vulcan grotto.

Too bad, by the time we arrived at the cemetery drop off point, the weather is not favorable for us as the winds are too strong that lead to storm surges on the shore.

Worry not because I have a reason to go back at this place to dive/snorkel the ruins.

This site is very interesting. A statuesque large cross near the shore will surely add curiosity to travelers.

Based on the locals we've talked to, this is a result of a repeated volcanic eruptions leaving an area subsided and swallowed by the ocean. This cross is a commemorative sign of what was once lied in that town.

So serene. Peaceful. Picturesque.

You can go near the cross if you want to for 100php. Waves are strong so we decided not to push through with it. It would have been better if we were there during sunset.

We went to this place since this was part of the Company's outing itinerary.

We never got the chance to ride the bangka though and get to the cross because of the time. But locals seemed to be trained how to entertain tourists and take photos in a seemingly scripted way (notice the picture above, the proverbial selfie hahaha).

Souvenir shops are scattered all over the place including local fruits being sold.

Perhaps next visit I'll have more time and be able to get to the big cross. Bangka fare by the way is only P30 per person.

Part of our itinerary is to pay a visit to this well known place. Where alot of Filipino movie was shot. Because it's high tide we can't go near the cross. People in Camiguin are super religious I've seen alot of churches around the island. I am so proud to them that they maintained the cleanliness of the island and they've preserved the nature at it's best. 1280771280771280771280791280799786

Funny that bangkeros are teaching us how to strike a pose and do some tricks where you can capture good pictures with the cross.. Bravo mga kuya..128079128079128079

• During the volcanic birth of Mt. Vulcan that lasted from 1871 to about 1875, some areas in the town of Bonbon subsided, sinking the cemetery of the town to below sea level. The place is commemorated by a huge cross erected in 1982.

Yan lang naalala ko sa sinabi nila. 128584128585128586

Holy Week is coming soon, and I think Camiguin Island is one of the best places to visit.

Among all the attractions, such as falls, cold springs, hot springs, ruins, hundred stairs, beach resorts and the like, Sunken Cemetery is the famous.

The said spot is just a normal cemetery located in a low land area of the island way way back, not until an earthquake and volcanic birth cracked the soils and totally sinked all the tombs/stone graves below sea level.

Today, there's a huge cross that serves as marker (as seen in the pucture - with me and boyfie!) since all are under water. You may go directly to the cross or see all the grave crosses underneath using a boat.
