Iâ€™ve been able to island hop in Mactan, Cebu a number of times and whenever colleagues would ask me whatâ€™s a great island to stop over, I would always recommend them to drop by Bagongbanua, which is a sandbar; a small patch of sand that is already part of Bohol.
Itâ€™s about an hourâ€™s time from the port and the pump boat ride actually costs more (gasoline), but itâ€™s definitely worth it.
Every time thereâ€™s an island hopping outing that is planned from the office, I wanted them to always put this place as part of their itinerary. Although, itâ€™s not part of a Cebu attraction, itâ€™s still accessible in this region. Somehow, Iâ€™ve only been here once and if an opportunity arises, Iâ€™ll definitely hop on to the next pump boat ride to this piece of beauty.
There were a lot of people on the island because of people hopping as well, but we didnâ€™t really care. The sand was already enough and Iâ€™d recommend this to a lot of travelers who want to know more about Cebu and its best places.
