The Canigao Canal is a strait in the Philippine archipelago and connects the Bohol Sea in the south with the Camotes Sea in the north.
In the west is the island of Bohol , in the east the southern part of Leyte with the port city of Maasin City .
The strait is named after Canigao , a small, uninhabited island with a lighthouse off the coast of Leyte. There are numerous bays on its western coast, in which there are large tidal flats and mangrove forests . Some of these are under nature protection, such as in Cogtong Bay . The narrowest point in the channel marks the island of Lapinin off Bohol. It is only about 20 km from Maasin City.
