There are only few things to do in Bantayan, Cebu.
1. Rent a pump boat to Virgin Island + snorkeling. The boat is around P1000 plus you have to pay for the entrance fee. BORING.
2. Rent a motorcycle and explore the island. AWESOME.
8 hours - P250
24 hours - P350
Full tank of gasoline around P200+
Anika arranged the rentals for us. We asked the receptionist if they have a map and they gave us a hand drawn map LOL. It's quite helpful though, but we relied more on our instincts, some signs, and A LOT OF ASKING AROUND. :)
It took us 8 hours to travel all the tourist spots in the island. And damn we're sunburnt!! (but all worth it).
FIRST STOP: OGTONG CAVE
Entrance Fee P100
Gorgeous white sand beach!
We were lost for hours - we took the rough back road instead of the main one. But it was great. We saw many beach houses. They're all beautiful.
The entrance fee includes swimming in the pool.
The Ogtong cave - It's not something really spectacular.
But this view is amazing!
Here comes summer's scorching heat! I didn't have a hat so I bought a handkerchief along the way. I'm officially a ridaah! :D
NEXT STOP: Mangrove Garden
