Camiguin Volcano Houses - Entire Panoramic House - Airbnb.
Camiguin Island, just off the coast of north-central Mindanao Island (lower right), consists of four overlapping cones. Cloud-covered Mt. Mambajao forms the high point of the island. The youngest volcano, Hibok-Hibok (also known as Catarman), has been active during historical time and lies at the NW end of the island. Major eruptions during 1871-75 and 1948-53 formed flank lava domes at Hibok.
The youngest volcano, and the only historically active one, is Hibok-Hibok (also known as Catarman). It lies at the NW end of the island, about 6 km NW of Mt. Mambajao. This andesitic-to-rhyolitic volcano contains several lava domes, including Mt. Vulcan on its NW flank. Major eruptions during 1871-75 and 1948-53 formed flank lava domes at Hibok-Hibok and produced pyroclastic flows that.
Camiguin Mindanao is about 20 kilometres (12 mi) long by 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) wide with a number of volcanoes, pyroclastic cones and craters. The highest point in the island is the active volcano Hibok-Hibok at the northwestern end of the island, with an elevation of 1,332 metres (4,370 ft) above mean sea level (asl), and a base diameter of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi).
Yet, it bodes well for Camiguin island to have remained fairly untouched and unspoilt. Despite the teeny weeny size of the island, the 2nd smallest island province, Camiguin has 7 volcanoes standing aloft like sentinels of the island and just exuding confidence in the beauty of its natural wonders.

An island that has more volcanoes per square mile than any other island on the planet and ivory sandbars in an electric blue sea - Camiguin in Philippines is beautiful and surprisingly still untouched by the hordes of tourists. You can dive and view the submerged cemetery, which slipped into the sea following an earthquake and trekkers can climb up the active volcano - Mount Hibok-Hibok.Best.
Hibok-Hibok Volcano Observatory offers a great view of Camiguin’s coastal area and a basic knowledge of seismology and volcanology. Like a thorny rose, behind the beauty of Camiguin island is a looming cataclysm because of its active volcano. It’s a relief that the team from the Department of Science and Technology in cooperation with the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
