Tips from the community

Imagine a place where you can pull on the board shorts, dive off a cliff, and be swimming in the company of turtles. Well…that’s Cebu. An island in the heart of the famous Visayas chain, it’s blessed with plenty of things to keep the pancake-munching backpacker busy. Make for Moalboal if you want to snorkel with our shell-backed buddies, along with schools of sardines and black-wringed sea kraits (keep your distance from those!). Inland, days of canyoneering can reveal the luminescent plunge pools of the Kawasan Falls. Meanwhile, little Oslob in the south offers chances to meet hulking whale sharks.

First solo travel. I remember we were just browsing promo flights in the office one day and I impulsively booked a flight to Cebu for myself. I told my officemates so I had to go through with it even if I was a bit anxious (but also very excited) going alone. I explored the island from south to north from 5 days. I went canyoneering, visited waterfalls, went on an island and met fellow travelers.
