Camiguin: A Glimpse of Tanguines Lagoon

by lakwatserong tatay

As our shuttle droves to Giant Clams Sanctuary, Kuya Chris told us about the Tanguines Lagoon, an artificial lagoon, which was not actually part of our itinenary. We just passed by on this lagoon although were aware what to see and do on this lagoon. We just have our photo opps and proceed to our last destination....^_^

Tanguines Lagoon
Tanguines Lagoon is a man made lagoon near Benoni Port, Town of Mahinog, used as a fishpond but eventually on a part of this lagoon was converted into a floating restaurant, travel lodge and now offers ziplines. Aside from this choices, it offers nature fresh air, with serene rocky cliffs and purely tranquility.

Aside from J&A Fishpen that is known in this area, this lagoon also offers travel lodge known as  Lagoon Travel Lodge and a bistro not far from Lagoon Travel Lodge known as Lagoon Bistro that offers inexpensive seafoods cuisines too.

from far away is JA Fishpen (floating restaurant)
One of the restaurant located in Tanguines Lagoon is J&A Fishpen, based from some reviews it offer fresh and delicious dishes, some like it and some don't. The food costs also was quite pricey so basically we passed by this because where on a budget travel that time, but maybe by the next time we visit the Province of Camiguin, we may have the chance to experience dining on this floating restaurant.

As of July, 2012, Camiguin launch their 1st ever Zipline that has a distance of 700 meters. Now known as Camiguin Benoni Zipline located at Benoni, Mahinog, Camiguin Island, a three lane zipline, that basically crosses Tanguines Lagoon, giving you a chance to across a body of water and a sight seeing experience of the serene coasts of Mantigue Island and Benoni. So after having hanged in the air, you may try to dine in JA Fishpen or Lagoon Bistro or stay near the lagoon on Lagoon Travel Lodge, which we missed out when we where there.
