The beauty of Camiguin Island can now be easily captured in Tiningalan View Deck.
Tiningalan View Deck is one of many view decks that are appearing to help people appreciate the abundant nature and the unmatched beauty of Mindanao. It perfectly captures the beauty of the island of Camiguin from its vantage point as well as gives a bird’s-eye-view of some parts of the towns of Sugbungcogon and Kinoguitan – immediate barangays near the view deck.
At the top is a stunning view of a sea of green and a literal sea just at the distance. The panoramic sceneries of the low-rolling terrains in the vicinity as well as the thriving flora of the island give a very pleasing view that relaxes anyone who looks at them. Complementing these extremely relaxing views are refreshing winds of clean and unpolluted air that blow from both the sea and the hill where it stands.
A view deck like this wouldn’t be complete without capturing the moment to make it last forever. There are photo op props set on the edges of the deck for those Instagram-worthy snaps to liven the visitors’ feeds. Aside from the verdant backgrounds, there are also lovely gardens that are worth taking pictures of just down the slope.
Trees, colorful bushes, and vibrant flowers all fill the path going up to the view deck and already provide lovely views before being able to see the actual view on the deck – sort of like an appetizer before the main course.
The place is relatively new and there are still developments underway that will make the experience of visitors much more worthwhile and unforgettable. Some projects in the pipeline are a restaurant, snack bar, and some adventure and leisure activities that will all take advantage and bring out the best of the stunning hillside views.
