Travel: Cebu (Bantayan Island)
February 3, 2012
(2008) Bantayan Island, a small island at the northernmost part of Cebu, is a hidden paradise filled with pristine waters and white sandy beaches. With Cynthia, my HS friend, we traveled together to explore this beautiful place.
It’s a 3-hr bus travel from Cebu City going to Hagnaya Port. It was an adventure because we rode an ordinary bus and beside us were the locals traveling with their live chickens. Probinsyang probinsya talaga! Then from Hagnaya Port, it’s another 1-hr ferry travel going to Santa Fe, one of the municipalities of Bantayan Island.
Cebu City to Hagnaya Port to Santa Fe
We stayed at Santa Fe Beach Club. Not a good location because it’s very near to the port. Swimming is not more fun if you see the ferries and boats docked few meters away from where you are.
So we decided to explore and look for another place. We rent a tricycle and told the driver to bring us to Ogtong Cave Beach Resort. Good find dahil masarap mag swimming, ang linaw at linis ng tubig. We spent most of the afternoon swimming and relaxing at the hammock, then we returned to our place.
We also saw these friendly dogs at the beach. Most of the time, I see them loitering around the beach or sleeping. I’m really fond of dogs, so they became instant subjects of my photography. Parang may LQ na nagaganap, hahaha!
It was a short 2-day stay only. That’s because I didn’t ask my parents permission to go there. Who would have thought I’m in Cebu where I’m supposed to be at … Subic. It even rain hard the night before we left and I was getting paranoid that I might not be able to go home on time. Lagot ako!!!
