The whole capital of Camiguin, with its cemetery, sunk under the sea. In the following years, the sunken land and the gravestones can still be seen. when the tide is low. But in 1948 until 1953, Mount Vulcan erupted again, sinking the whole area deeper, to around twenty feet. In 1982, a large cross was built on the solidified lava to mark the site that became the graves of the ancestors of the Camiguin people. It has become a sunken cemetery. http://www.silent-gardens.com/camiguin-sunken.php

By the time we arrived where the sunken cemetery was located, a strong hissing sound of a cold wind met us. Everyone went panicky!

You can just take pictures from afar, if you don't want to go and take the boat for a fee (negotiated P50 pesos per person). Probably best when there's sunset, or on a sunny day.

We took some nice shots of the Sunken Cemetery Cross. There is a boat ride available to go near the cross but were satisfied viewing the Sunken Cemetery from the viewing platform. We had memorable photos in this place.

This is another spot to visit in Camiguin, another photo opportunity. This place has some historical significance and a reminder of catastrophic natural events. We went there late in the afternoon to catch the sunset but it was cloudy. Still, photos are nice.
