As with any place frequented by tourist and visitors, there are bound to be tourist traps and not so good practices. Bantayan is no exception. I’m just hoping that local government and stakeholders will change ways a bit to make the island even more ‘tourist friendly’ than it already is. Tourism is everybody’s businesses and [...]
Heads-up! Bantayan is not Boracay. This famous vacation destination in Cebu is laidback. There are no loud all-nighter parties, no lines of restaurants meters off the shoreline, no regular sighting of celebrities. You will even find it difficult to find beach resorts that offers a wide array of aqua-adventure facilities like jetskiing, parasailing, kit-surfing, bananaboat [...]

This island destination used to be a ‘hidden paradise’ and a well kept secret of Cebu but more and more people have [...]

On our second day in Mangodlong Rock Resort , Mr Sun made up for the previous days of no swimming because of rough waves! Hurray! We woke up early, ate our silog breakfast at P80 per plate with free coffee. And then it was play time on the sand and beach!
Camotes is simply an awesome beach travel destination and …
Camotes Island is home to white sand beaches and great resorts. Mangodlong Rock Resort together with its sister resort Santiago Bay Garden and Resort are two of Camotes most popular beach resorts.
