Submerged in the waters of Catarman, Camiguin is a Spanish-era cemetery that sank in the aftermath of the 1871 eruption of Mt. Vulcan. At present, the location is marked by a giant white cross.
The old town of Catarman, Camiguin was one of the places that suffered in the 1871 eruption of Mt. Vulcan. Among the remnants of the old town were the old church ruins and the old cemetery, which is now submerged 20 feet under water. Corals and marine life have grown around the old tombstones, making the Sunken Cemetery a unique diving and snorkeling destination.
The location is marked by a giant cross above water. Every November 1, locals would bring flowers along the shores to remember their ancestors buried in the Sunken Cemetery.
