Seair InFlight December 09 - January 2010 Issue: Oggie Ramos' Mantigue Island, Camiguin

Ramos is a nature freak and loves off-the-beaten paths. Having been to Camiguin thrice, he wanted to explore the less touristy places and chanced upon Mantigue Island. He took this shot of the island from the banca en route to the town of Mahinog. The morning sun was up, making the sea sparkle and the clear waters reveal the wealth of corals underneath. Mantigue has an inland forest and clear waters, home to huge table corals sheltering schools of fish. Its forest is a nesting place of migratory birds while its beach is a nesting site for turtles. The local government is in the process of restoring the island to its pristine state and relocating its residents. Camiguin province is home to seven volcanoes, beautiful beaches, cold and hot springs, and waterfalls.
