Sands of Bantayan Island Cebu

Reminiscing one of the best beaches which is located at the Northern part of Cebu.

I’ve only been to Bantayan once. I remember spending only 1,200 Php inclusive of fare, cottage and food for a 3D 2N package. It was a very good deal because I joined a group of people on their team building when I was still an agent. I remember how thick-faced I was to invite myself to their outing. Come to think of it, I’ve been to a number of places here in Cebu due to these group building activities. It helps because the expenses are divided among many people so you cut down on costs while enjoying the location. This happened in August 2007; back when I was barely legal (hehe).

Bantayan Island is located North of Cebu (around 4 hours – by bus and by barge) Can’t really give much specifics on how to get there as it’s been three years already. Maybe I should start my own backpacking series so I can provide more information on what to expect.

After about 5 hours from Cebu City, I was met with this beautiful landscape. Green trees and white sand. The water did not disappoint either.
