Higatangan Island

This is the second part of Day 2, as we travel towards another virgin island here in Visayas. The next island is Higatangan Island. Geographically speaking, the island is not part of Cebu but of Leyte. Unlike Carnaza where it’s some kind of shot in the dark adventure since we really don’t have any concrete place to stay, in Higatangan we had a contact and a resort to stay in. (more…)

Virgin Island Series Part II: Exploring Carnaza Island Cebu

Good morning Carnaza by Jane

Good morning Carnaza by Jane

After the Day 1 adventure of getting to Carnaza island which I posted here, we woke up just as the sun is rising for Day 2.

It’s amazing how late we did hit the sack the previous night and still managed to wake up around 6 AM. We certainly can’t do this at the city– I really don’t know why. But the sound of boats, the crispness of the salt water in the wind and that certain calmness by the beach is a great way to start our day. So, here’s what we did on our Day 2 adventure.

MORNING WALK

After drinking our coffee, we decided to walk along the shoreline and explore the island some more. According to the owner of the house we can buy fresh catch from the fishermen at around 8AM. We decided to wait for them to arrive and just explore the island while doing so. (more…)

Virgin Island Series Part I: Tips on Going to Carnaza Island Cebu

Summer is not over until I say so! Or, if that’s not enough, let’s call on the Summer in August band!

By the way, this post might be a little bit late but ho ho ho, it’s on production now and that means I’m trying to lift the lazy bug out of my way. To make things a little bit more fun let’s start this welcome-me-back post with a Carnaza-Higatangan-Sambauan Island Adventure that I took along with my friends, who were bitten by the travel bug. The three islands might not sound too familiar to anyone because they’re virgin island around Visayas, Philippines.

To start of this series, let’s start with our first destination–Carnaza Island Cebu.

carnaza

Carnaza island is located at the northernmost part of Cebu, Philippines. It is accessible through Tapilon Port. This needs to be emphasized because Carnaza Island is not that famous that the bus that we rode on took us to Maya Port. Maya Port is for travelling to Malapascua Island. While, Tapilon is for Carnaza. It just needs emphasize. I promise you. (more…)

Summer 2014: Sumilon Island White Sand Bar

Sumilon Island White Sand Bar

“The Philippines is an archipelago comprising of 7, 107 islands.”

This surely is one of the most popular description of my country. It’s a country of islands and thus, is blessed with a lot of beaches and body of water. Due to its geographical location, the country is a tropical one– days are cycles of either the sun or the rain, or both. No snow. Summer vacation is not limited to 2 to 3 months, which is the case for country which enjoys the four-season; rather, Summer is the hottest month of the year. (more…)

Oslob Whale Shark Watching

According to the internet, the whale shark is the largest known fish species that feeds on plankton, krill and other small sea creature by filter-feeding. In the Philippines, the whale sharks or commonly known as the “Butanding” have been sighted from the northern to the southern region of the country. Whale shark watching has been one of the main tourist attraction in the country, especially in the region where the sightings are more rampant. One of these spots is in Oslob, Cebu. (more…)

One of the few things that I looked forward for the month of march is the Kawasan Run 2014: Run for Sight fun run/marathon. Kawasan Falls is one of the major attractions here in Cebu and it will be my first time to visit the site. We(boyfriend and I) would like to tour around Cebu this 2014 because for Pete’s sake he’s been living here for almost 4 years now and as for me, it’s gonna be 2 years and 6 months soon. To avoid that cliche about not loving or visiting your own place, although we’re really guilty of doing this, we will try to visit all (wishful thinking) beautiful attractions here in Cebu. (more…)
