Travel Diaries | Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin

The Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin is one of the must-see attractions in the island, eerie as it may be to visit a place of death, with thousands of departed buried underneath. As you might have guessed, the cemetery was not submerged by waters in the past. When Mt. Vulcan was born, the eruptions lasted from 1871 to 1875, something that also caused some areas to sink down below sea level. Some parts of the town of Bonbon sank, along with the cemetery.
