Photo Gallery


Camiguin de Babuyanes volcano (lower left), the youngest on Camiguin Island, occupies the SW tip of the 22-km-long island in the Babuyan archipelago, north of Luzon Island. The forested, 712-m-high Camiguin stratovolcano, along with the cones of Minabul to the north and Caanoan to the east, was constructed during the mid Pleistocene along a NE-SW fracture zone. A phreatic eruption, possibly in part submarine, was reported from Camiguin de Babuyanes in about 1857.
