Bacolod day 3: Lakawon island

Bacolod 3: Lakawon Island
Sunday, April 26, 2008
Last day. Lakawon island.

This was the day of the visit I was anticipating because we were going to the beach (again? haha). Woke up early and ate breakfast. Good thing we had a ride available to bring us to the place. It took around an hour for us to get to the place so we can ride a pump boat to the island. It would've taken a longer time if we commuted. Was happy when we finally stepped on some sand already. The place reminded me of Moalboal, but they just have a lot of activities for you to enjoy because the water isn't deep. Kayak, banana boat, skim board, speedboat (which was exclusive, so as they say), volleyball, etc. Too bad we were not able to savor the sun as much as I wanted because it rained most of the time.

But we were able to catch some rays though. When we left Lakawon island, we arrived at Circle Inn at around 6pm. Ate at Manokan Country again, and just let the time pass as I went home around 1:15am the next day. I took the bus to go back to Cebu. Departed at 1:15am and got to Cebu at around 9:15am. 8 hours… wow, I could’ve finished a day’s worth of work in that span of time. I don't know how many sitting sleeping (or sleeping sitting???) positions I had but it didn't matter as I was dead-tired when I woke up and reported to work at 12noon.

Thanks to Doi and Audrey for the lodge and the food! oh the fare also! hehe.

  1. Daghan na kaayo ka places na adto. When will you pluck up the courage to go to Dumaguete… Hehehe…

    I wonder when you’ll run out of excuses.

    Uban ta. La…

  2. I really find it ironic that I haven’t explored Lakawon Island that I grew up in Cadiz City. I’ve been to a lot of places in the country but haven’t glanced the beauty of my own City.
    I am thankful of this page because it awakens my senses. I can’t wait to go home and visit Lakawon Island..

    • glad that you were able to check your place out thru my page. it’s really ironic too, i guess we’re still taking things easy since we know these places are within our reach. i haven’t even explored all the places in cebu either.
