Mantigue is a small island located about 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) off the coast of volcanic island province of Camiguin province in the Philippines. Also known as Magsaysay Island, it is about 4 hectares (9.9 acres) of greenery fringed with a gleaming white beach of powdery coral sand.[1] A fishing village is located in the northern side of the island. One side of the island is a white sand beach with corals offshore, and the opposite side provides a deep drop-off for snorkeling and diving.[2]

Mantigue Island can be reached by light water craft in 25–30 minutes from Brgy. San Roque in the town of Mahinog.
