The old capital of Cotta Bato in Catarman, Camiguin and its cemetery sunk during Old Vulcan’s eruption in 1871. During low tide and on a clear day, remnants of the structures and the gravestones can be seen.
We took the boat to cross to the large cross and midway, we asked our boatman to stop so we can see the graves. The graves are discernible through the waters and two of our companions went down to see them closely. As for the rest of us, we continued getting to the large cross platform and took pictures.
According to our companions who dive underwater, the graves are now mostly covered with corals and the fishes that can be seen there are quite colorful and beautiful. The location at the back of the cross is already part of the marine sanctuary. Boat fare round-trip to the cross is only P15.00 per person.
The sunset from this part of the island is quite beautiful. We planned on getting back during sunset that but was too tired. Will have to do it next time including the dive underwater.
Lastly, the cross can be seen from the Via Cruces at the slopes of Old Vulcan.
