Island Hopping to Virgin Island of Bantayan Cebu

Virgin Island Hopping from Bantayan

It’s the second day of our Bantayan vacation. We rose early with the sun, excited to go island hopping to Virgin Island. Our baon was freshly-catch seafood, a combo of blue crabs, local lobster, fish, octopus, that we are to cook once we get to the island. We also had mangoes, soft drinks, and puso for a complete, satisfying, delectable seafood island feast . Lami dyud!  😉

**For an updated Bantayan travel guide and list of accommodations in Sta Fe, you can refer to this post.

We hopped on-board a motorized outrigger boat. Boat rental for the whole day is P800, it comes with life vests for the passengers. Virgin Island has a designated area for grilling and cooking at no charge.  Your boatman can be your cook too. Normally, one just gives a tip and/or lunch invitation for this extra service requested of the boatman.
