Bantayan Island: Postcards from Cebu

School is about to end. It's the time of the year where everyone is out and about seeking the sun.

Planning for a summer vacation yet?

If you are looking for a nice and quiet view aside from being a beautiful beach. Then, let's go to Cebu. There are a lot of places to visit in Cebu, but what I really enjoyed most is Bantayan island.


When in Bantayan Island
St. Peter and Paul Church
Ogtong Cave inside Santa Fe Beach Club
Madridejos Kota Park and Bontay Baywalk
Merienda at Kermit’s
D’Jungle Buffet Dinner every Friday
Visit local market for pasalubong (offers the best danggit and a variety of dried fishes)


You can rent a motorbike/motorcycle for about a 100/hour and drive around the small island of Bantayan consisting of three towns: Santa Fe, Madridejos and Bantayan.

The two(2) published photos are my favorite taken at the beachfront of Budyong Beach Resort. Just thought I made my own postcard. :P

Waaaahh!!! I really wanna go to CEBU!

Last Januray, pupunta sana ako dyan. To attend the Sinulog Festival. Kaso hindi ako agad nakapag book ng plane ticket. Sold out na yata ang mga tipid fares. EH medyo hindi ko kaya ang mga regualr prices that time.. poor lang kasi. hihihi..

But one of these days pupunta ako dyan. Before this year ends, hopefully.

Bantayan Island. Looks nice. Kmusta naman ang ambience? Yung rates ba, affordable din? Yung food? Malayo ba ito sa Cebu.. i mean, from the city talaga? hehehe.. interview. :)

Nice naman at pwede palang mag rent ng motorbike para merong tour. Hmm.. nice. I love this. At least, meron na akong ideya kung saan ako pupunta kung matuloy ako sa Cebu. Thanks, RD.

P.S.
The pictures,, sa Budyong Beach Resort.. it's still in the island?

@leah: hehe nobela itu! nyways here are my A's to ur Q's: (#meganun)
1. Ambience. Super mkakapagrelaks ka.. dahil maganda at tahimik yung lugar.. parang ikaw lng.
2. Rates. Oo pwede na.
3. Food. madami ka naman kakainan dun na mura kung sakali. pero if u wanna experience buffet and food sa resort, ayos lng din :)
4. Location. Malayo talaga siya from city. kasi if i remember it right, nagbus kami sa city going to hagnaya port at parang it took us 6 hours? gabi nung lumakad kami medyo paumaga na pagdating dun. Den sakay kami sa roro. or meron din nman atang mga ferry dun going to island. from there cguro 30mins o 1 hour.
5. Budyong Resort. The last time we were there, andun naman.. Di naman cia nagpaalam samin kung sakali man ciang umalis.. hahah lalang.. #lafftrip

@leah: ooppss 2 and a half pala from city to port.. refer to this.. http://pinoykronikels.com/2010/07/16/postcards-from-cebu/

Leah said...

Hmmm.. Nice naman. Medyo malayo pala siya sa city. Sooo... from the city to Hagnaya port, 2and halfhours. Then port to island, 1hour.. So, more or less..3-4 hours and byahe from the city to the island. Okiz.. Kasi Im planning to go sa Cebu. Meron lang akong kakilala dun, nakalimutan ko kung anong name ng place nila.. and I really am searching for some beaches/islands na pwedeng mapuntahan. Para sulit din naman ang magiging bakasyon ko... if ever matuloy. bwahaha...

Salamat sa info. I'd tell my friend right away. :)

P.S.
Hahaha!!! Loko. hihi.. tinatanong ko lang kung ang Budyong Beach Resort eh nasa Bantayan Island rin.. or maybe nasa ibang island siya.. :P Toinks! Lafftrip tgla. :P

ardee sean said...

@leah: yup, sulit talaga sa Bantayan Island.. I mean if you want the beach, pwedeng pwede ang Bantayan. Actually, I would want to go back there. though wla pang definite plans yet.. :) Ayoko na nga umalis dun dati hahah.

u enjoy ur stay there :P
