Bantayan Island – one of the amazing spots to visit in Cebu Province. It is often visited by fellow Filipinos and foreigners who seek a relaxing break from stress. The vast stretch of white sand beach, the strong refreshing wind, and the resounding waves are enough to let the people rejuvenate in such sceneries.
Last weekend, I went on an adventure wanting to get refreshed from the stressful week. It’s not my first time to be at Bantayan, but it’s always worth the repeat. I went for a photo walk, or should I say, photo ride because I rented a scooter and went around FREE spots on the island.
These photos were taken by ASUS Zenfone 5 and enhanced with Adobe Lightroom CC Mobile App:
Sta. Fe Beach
The most popular spot in Bantayan Island because of its long stretch of white sand beach and pristine turquoise water. It is located at the municipality of Sta. Fe in Bantayan Island.
This turned-into-attraction is also located at Sta. Fe, just a few meters from the Kota Beach. This is well-known for its Instagram-worthy structures and the small cliffs nearby are perfect for cliff-jumping and swimming.
Obo-ob Mangrove Garden Integrated Conservation Association or also known as OMAGEICA is an environmental area full of mangroves and bamboo bridges.
This spot is located at Kabangbang, Bantayan and is at the highest areas of the island. A long time ago, minerals were extracted leaving mountains to be devastated. However, the remains of the quarry looked like some powerful ninjas battled around.
I tried to get into the top of one of the quarry and I made it halfway thru rock climbing. Climbing up was easy but it was a struggle to go down. Please be extra careful!
There’s more to see in Bantayan that I didn’t capture in this blog post. You can visit my old post and see more spots there. Nevertheless, the beauty of this island is ethereal that I hope to be conserved and preserved as years pass by.
