Back in Cebu South: Binalayan and Inambakan Falls

Reminiscing my trip back home to the Philippines last August 2019, I realized that I haven’t yet blogged about our exciting first time visit to 2 beautiful waterfalls in Cebu South. With that, I am launching my blog’s #TravelTuesdays special with this unforgettable experience of ours during our visit to these pristine waterfalls in the Queen City of the South!

Chasing the Sunrise at Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort

It was the day before our Bantayan Island trip that I was panicking to find another hotel for us to stay into because from a 1D1N plan, we abruptly decided to extend the trip with another day and night. I think it was a blessing in disguise when all the other hotels were full because if it was not for that, I wouldn’t find this gem, Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort.

La Playa Estrella: Great Food and Beach Lights at Night, but it’s Not Much

If you’re looking for a night party, this is the place for you. But if you are looking for a place to relax with nature, you better go to Amihan Beach Cabanas or Bantayan Island Nature Park.

1D1N in Badian for less than Php 600! (with Itinerary, Travel Guide, and Summary of Expenses)

Cebu is full of weekend getaway spots and Badian will absolutely appear at the top of your searches. Being one of the top tourist places in the Cebu province, Badian is known for its white sand beaches, pristine waterfalls, and diving spots. It doesn’t matter if you plan to stay there for a full week or for just one day. Badian will not disappoint as long as you know where you’re going and what you’re doing!

One weekend, my sister and I were thinking to go camping at a white beach somewhere in Cebu that would not cost us much. I found Lambug Beach in Google very quickly and from there, we started to pack.

A 5-hour Visit to the great Kawasan Falls (with Travel Guide and Expenses)

If you are not going to do Canyoneering, the visit to Kawasan Falls will not be worth it.

In my 8 years of living in Cebu City, Kawasan Falls is one legend that I always hear about. I never went there in the past because Canyoneering is too mainstream! *laughs Last weekend, since my sister and I visited Badian to camp at Lambug Beach, it is hard to ignore the urge to at least take a peek of the legendary Kawasan Falls of Cebu.

Disclaimer: We didn’t do Canyoneering. We just visited the location. So if you are looking for Canyoneering articles for Kawasan Falls, this is not a place for you.

White Beach + Chill Camping + Affordable Weekend by the Sea = Badian’s Lambug Beach (Travel Guide and Expenses)

My experience during my beach camping at Lambug Beach, Badian. Read on!

There are three (3) popular beaches that will appear in your search when you Google “beach campsite in Cebu.” The first and by far the most popular one would be (1) Basdaku, Moalboal then (2) Tingko Beach, Alcoy and lastly (3) would be Lambug Beach, Badian.

My sister and I chose Lambug Beach! Reason is that, it is the least popular of all the three, therefore it means, lesser crowds! So, let’s start on what I really mean with “White Beach” + “Chill Camping” + “Affordable Weekend by the Sea” in the title of this article.

If you are planning to go to Lambug Beach in the future, be sure to read on!

Mt. Naupa: Another Friendly Peak at the South (With Travel Guide and Summary of Expenses)

Mt. Naupa has become popular to mountaineers, campers, and trekkers since last year. We got curious about it, that is why, when my friends invited me to have a camping trip to Mt. Naupa, I did not hesitate to come!

We decided to pack our bags and spend our September 24th and 25th at the top of the mountain. That’s a weekend, of course. We wanted to see how the sundown and sunup would look like from the top so we decided to start our trip at noon and rode a bus to Minglanilla, Cebu.

#GabiiSaKabilin2016 : Ang Paghinumdom sa Kaniadto

I love history. I always love to look back through time and see how the people in the past live and work. When I found out that Cebu is very active in promoting cultural and historical awareness, I was very happy.

Having Gabii sa Kabilin here in Cebu for 9 years now is a manifestation that many are eager and passionate to appreciate Philippine culture and history. That’s a very good thing for us specially that we are now under neocolonialism.

Gabii sa Kabilin or Night of Heritage is a 6pm to 12am activity that is held every last friday of May every year where participants tour from one historical site to another. For one night, you get to tour around Cebu City and get to know the past of the Cebuanos! How amazing is that?

Aguinid Falls: The Mini-Canyoneering Adventure in Samboan

Our trip to Aguinid Falls was not a planned trip because Canyoneering was out of the list when we planned our Cebu South Backpacking trip. But when our tour guide suggested that we go to Samboan to experience the Canyoneering adventure of Aguinid Falls, we didn’t think twice and just hopped to the motorbike and started the travel right away!

The Osmeña Peak is the highest point in the Cebu province with 1, 072.6  MASL. It is located at Brgy. Mantalongon, Dalaguete, Cebu. If you are from the Cebu Province, I believe you already heard or read about this tourist spot since this has been one of the go-to places in Cebu, especially for those who are fond of trekking, hiking, camping, and a lot more physical activities under the sun.
