This underwater cemetery can be appreciated all year round.

One of the most intriguing places in the island of Camiguin is a place where stories of the past lie below, not just in the land under, but 20-30m below, underwater.

You can get near the cross by riding a little boat and holding on that rope #SunkenCemetery #Camiguin #travel #mindanao

Camiguin Island is located in the northern off coast of Misamis Oriental in Northern Mindanao. One of its main attractions is a place where people from the Spanish era lay in peace. Now, driven underwater due to the volcanic eruption of Mt. Vulcan Daan way back in the 1870’s, this place serves as a memorial for the locals and visitors alike.

Visitors can also scuba dive below and explore the underwater cemetery closer.
