The Sunken Cemetery is one of the iconic tourist spots in Camiguin Island marked by the huge cross several meters away from a beach on the western side of the mainland. It was once a 5-hectare public cemetery but was sunken due to the eruption of Mount Vulcan Daan on 1871. The gigantic cross was erected on 1982 which marks the entombed underneath. Surprisingly, the area underneath the cross are teeming with different types of corals and biodiversity which became a known dive site. Visitors may reach the cross boarding a paddled boat. Another destination left the same volcanic eruption is the Old Gui-ob Church Ruins which can be found nearby.

Sunken Cemetery is located in Catarman, Camiguin.
