Sunken CemeteryCatarman, Camiguin
The sunken cemetery used to be part of the old capital of Camiguin. Mount Vulcan had four recorded eruptions. Its third eruption in 1871 sunk the cemetery and Spanish church under the sea and the fourth eruption in 1948 buried the area deeper by around 20 feet. In 1982, a large cross was built on the solidified lava to mark this old gravesite and it now a very popular diving site.
