How to get to Camiguin: Best options

Camiguin, the "Island born of fire" is one of the most recommended islands to visit in the Philippines. Its incredible beauty and its diversity of landscapes make this island an essential place to see on any itinerary. However, there are not so many options to get to the island and it is advisable to book your transfer in advance.

In this post I talk about how to get to Camiguin and I add several tips to visit the island.



By plane, the most comfortable but most expensive way to get to Camiguin

From the Cebu or Manila airport you have quite a frequency of planes that go to Camiguin. It is the most comfortable option, without a doubt. Although also the most expensive. If you book the flight with enough time, prices start from 20 euros (one way). The flight only lasts 50 minutes.

By Ferry, a comfortable and economical option to get to Camiguin

The most common itinerary is to visit Bohol and from there go to Camiguin by ferry. Unless, you want to return to Cebu from Bohol by ferry and take a flight from there. There are no direct flights to Camiguin from Bohol airport at this time.

To catch the ferry in Bohol you must go to the port of Jagna. The ferry trip lasts about 3 and a half hours (all depending on the state of the sea) and costs about 12 or 13 euros each way. It is advisable to book the ferry ticket in advance, although you can also buy it at the ticket office. It is advisable to arrive at the ticket office 2 hours before approx. From the ferry departure to find a place.

The frequency of the ferries in high season is usually 2 ferries a day and in low season 3-4 ferries a week.


If your Philippine itinerary does not have a direct connection to Camiguin, you will need to connect via Cebu or Manila. So I recommend that you rearrange your trip to visit Cebu or Manila between connections. The same thing will happen to you with other islands like Siargao, Bohol, Palawan…

If you are not sure which itinerary to follow, here is a complete guide to the Philippines and various itineraries.
