Hello

Holy week is a good time to be on Bantayan Island.

I can`t help you with the first 2 resorts but last June I spend a weekend on Bantayan & the first night we stayed at Kota Beach Resort.I & my extended family where not impressed with this resort or it`s facilities at all.

After the first night we moved to the resort almost next door called Marlins beach resort.Completly different & I can`t recommend it highly enough here is the web site www.marlin-bantayan.com

Copy a paste this link for my reviews of the above 2 resorts

Hope this helps

Travel Tips for Cebu Island

Boljoon, Cebu church and other victims of greed

by unica_hija77

Boljoon church in Southern Cebu, about a hundred km. from Cebu City. is a real trip to 200 years ago. Visit it while the people in charge have not totally wrecked it as they did other historical landmarks. As in many other churches in the Philippines, the parish priests have sold antiquities like its chandeliers, wrought silver communion rail. and other accessories. Termites are almost finished with its shockingly neglected statue cases.

Its church bells, old catechism school and prisoner detention cell stir the genetic memory cells and tell of life in our greatgreatgreatgrandparents' time.

It seems Catholic seminaries do not have church architecture or religious art appreciation in their curricula because after renovation most churches look like they have a cow's head and horse's tail attached to a dog's body. Filipino churchmen have not fully awakened to the tourist income possibilities of historical buildings. Also, churches have not been spared from the Filipino proclivity for initiating pointless projects just to raise funds and pocket a good part of the money.

What's left of Boljoon church's artifacts are in its small museum, which gives a tantalizing glimpse of what were sold to antique shops/collectors.

Parish Church of St. Catherine of Alexandria

by limledi

Carcar is known for its many well-preserved buildings from the colonial era and the Parish Church of St Catherine of Alexandria, built between 1860 and 1875. The 130-year old church is the second oldest church in whole Cebu that still exists today.

Mountain Views

by limledi

Aside from the delicious sweet corn, I also love the mountain views in trancentral highway. Fresh & cool mountain air is what people came here for. The famous Island In The Sky can also be found here with an entrance fee of P50 per head.

Map and History

by ligaya

"MAP"

Cebu is characterized by narrow coastlines, limestone plateaus, coastal plains but with predominant rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges traversing the northern and southern lengths of the island.

Although Cebu's steep mountains reach over 1,000 meters, the island lacks substantial forest cover. In the towns of Bogo, San Remigio, Medellin and Daan Bantayan at the northern tip of the province, considerable flat tracts of land are found.

"HISTORY"

Cebu in history

Cebu is said to be a trading center of Southeast Asia in the 13th century. But generally little has been known about Cebu's pre-hispanic and pre-historic past. Thanks however to the recently opened Southwestern University Museum which made available to the public Dra. Lydia Aznar-Alfonso's vast collection of prehistoric relics, antiques and artifacts that have been found in different parts of the island.

On April 8, 1521 Ferdinand Magellan arrived in Cebu and discovered the island for the Europeans thus opening a route that would be followed by sea traders until today. Magellan planted a cross in the island that would become Cebu's most famous landmark. While in the island, Magellan picked a fight with Cebu's local chieftain Lapu-lapu that led to the now legendary Battle of Mactan. Magellan was killed in the battle and most of his men were annihilated by the locals that marked one of histories most stunning war reversals. Spain was a world power at that time, dividing the world with Portugal, while Cebu was an unknown remote island in the Pacific.

Fourty-four years later, in February 1565, Spain sent another expedition to Cebu headed by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi which eventually succeeded in colonizing Cebu and the central islands of the Visayas as well as the northern islands of Luzon. The whole archipelago was named "Las Islas Filipinas" in honor of the then Spanish king Philip II.

Spain ruled the Philippines with an iron fist for 400 years that produced several rebellions and many Philippine heroes foremost among them was Dr. Jose Rizal who was recently been accorded as a hero of the Malayan race.

In May 1898 the Americans defeated the Spaniards in the Battle of Manila Bay and took control of the Philippines. The US Government awarded the Philippines independence in 1946 but retained favored trade pacts and several U.S. military bases within the country. In 1991 the Philippine Senate voted against the continuation of of US Military bases that effectively ended America's presence in the Philippines.
