  • A Beach Lover's Guide to Island Hopping in Cebu

    Few people realize that the Philippines is made up of more than 7000 islands. Yes, you read that right! Within this mass of land amongst water, are different areas that are, in itself, an archipelago. Cebu comprises of over 150 islands, and is one of the most beautiful and exciting places in the Philippines. Don’t trouble yourself wondering how you’re going to cover them all though! That’s what our guide is for - to ensure you don’t miss out on the best. . Sumilon Island, Oslob Just 15 minutes from the mainland, Sumilon Island has plenty to offer you - white sand beaches and water the colour of gems - that will take your breath away. Dive into those waters by snorkelling, and swim with whale sharks, observe the marine life that has been preserved since 1974, the first fish sanctuary in the Philippines. Whether you take a dip in the infinity pool, relax on a hammock with a book and the breeze, go kayaking in the lagoon, trek across the island to be one with nature, or climb the lighthouse to get a spectacular aerial view of Sumilon, this island gives you a well-rounded satisfying experience. . Funtastic Island (Gibitngil Island), Medellin A little further away from the mainland is Gibitngil Island, a lush bit of land with clear aquamarine waters, also called ‘Little Pawan’, as the rock formations on the island resemble that of Pawan. Apart from natural beauty, the island boasts fun activities for thrill seekers, like cliff-to-rock ziplining - which holds you suspended above the clear blue waters making for a gorgeous view; strapped in with a life jacket, so don’t worry about falling or not being able to swim, and kayaking in the scenic surroundings. Treat yourself to a dip in the waters; and a trek through the island, taking in the plantations and buying fresh fish off fishermen you may meet. The biggest attraction Gibitngil Island has is cliff diving - a 40-foot platform labelled ‘Adventure of the Year’ in 2014 by a local show. Conquer your fear of heights by starting small, but make sure to check this off your bucket list! . Pacijan Island, Camotes Islands This island offers more than just beaches and water sports. Lake Danao has two interior islands that can be reached by paddleboat or through a scenic lake cruise. A hiking and cycling trail covers the entire 18 kilometre perimeter of the lake. Mangodlong beach is one of the most visited beaches in the Camotes Islands, probably due to the coral islet opposite it. The Timubo Cave is great for exploring if you want a break from pristine beaches. A little bit spooky and a lot adventurous, this spelunking tour is more fun with a group, as you explore its crevices, stalactites and stalagmites, and take a dip in the dark depths of rock pools found within. . Malapascua Island This tiny island is the perfect getaway, to relax on the beach, get a massage, or explore the marine life, as it is unspoilt by tourism. It is one of the best places for diving, which is a good thing considering the fact that you can cover the whole island in less than 2 hours. Malapascua Island is the only place in the world where you can see Thresher Sharks every day - with their long tails that are almost half their body length. It is truly a diver’s dream with giant manta rays up close, seahorses, cuttlefish and more, wrecks at various depths that allow beginner-level snorkelers to professional divers to explore them - including a couple from WWII, and spectacular night-diving that brings the sea to life while the world sleeps. . Olango Group of Islands Olango is known for its floating restaurants, marine sanctuary, bird sanctuary, impossibly blue seas and an excellent view of the sunset. Mudflats allow for bird watching (attracting mudskippers and shells in the process), even in high tide - the bird sanctuary being created as Olango is a mandatory stopover for migratory birds on their way to Australia, including endangered ones. Even though the island may seem underdeveloped to tourists, it is all part of the charm. Flora and fauna is abundant here, around the rocky river paths and in the thick of mangroves, and the authentic natural food adds to the ambience of the islands. Planning a trip to Philippines?

  • 5 of Cebu's Most Majestic Waterfalls

    When it comes to Cebu and waterfalls, restricting them to just 5 is incredibly difficult. Waterfalls may all seem pretty similar - water cascading down into a scenic rock pool, surrounded by beauty. In true spirit of nature though, every waterfall is different. Which is why, even though these are the 5 most majestic falls in Cebu according to us - all for different reasons, feel free to explore off the list. Cebu has around 90 “discovered” waterfalls at the moment. Imagine what’s left to be discovered! Be prepared to trek along narrow winded paths to get to your destination, make sure you are carrying plenty of water and wearing comfy shoes. Most of the places have locals living in the vicinity who are happy to feed you for a small price. Also keep in mind that you don’t just visit a waterfall - you experience one; so carrying a change of clothes and waterproofing your electronics and belongings is essential! Whether it’s relaxing on the edges of the rock pool, taking a dip, or getting a “massage” from the powerful jet of water, Cebu’s waterfalls are something not to be missed! . Tumalog Falls, Oslob About 170 kilometres from Cebu City lies Oslob, a place that has grown increasingly popular recently for swimming with whale sharks. Along with that, are the tourists who wish to “chase waterfalls”, as they like to call it, and Tumalog Falls is amongst the most majestic of them. The pool at this falls is knee-deep, so don’t be worried if you can’t swim! . Kawasan Falls, Badian Kawasan Falls is located in the mountains of Barangay Matutinao in Badian, and comprises of many waterfalls, that takes a trek of around 1.5 kilometres to get to. The first one is the largest and generally the most crowded, and a bit of a climb will take you up to the other two. Ice cold water makes up the impossibly blue pools, where locals offer a raft service to take you under the fall itself, or in the crevices behind it. . Bugasok Falls, Argao Slightly differing from the other falls, Bugasok Falls in Argao was used for waterfall rappelling, but lack of a rope means that the rock pool is inaccessible as there is no way back up. Completely surrounded by rock, the little pool into which the water falls is caught within itself, which makes for great picture-taking opportunities, so don’t miss out on that! . Mantayupan Falls, Barili At 98 metres high, Mantayupan Falls is Cebu’s highest waterfall, so it is without a doubt, its most majestic. A close alternative to Kawasan Falls, Mantayupan Falls is surrounded by Mother Nature. A little man-made help was added to make the trail easier, but it has been left with its natural beauty intact. There is nothing quite like being at the fall itself, surrounded by the elements, feeling the power of the plunging water.  . Montpellier Falls, Alegria Unlike the other falls, this one is absolutely free. That’s right, there’s no entrance charge. However, even if there was, it would be worth it to maintain the pristine beauty that this setting possesses. A trip to Alegria definitely calls for a visit to Montpellier Falls, which is an experience that can only be described as something out of a movie. With the waterfall gushing forth, surrounded by green trees clinging onto the mountain, and vines hanging from above, it’s like a private pool party.   ....
