  • A day trip to Moalboal

    by antonpopa Updated Nov 25, 2011

    Moalboal is at 2 hours drive from Cebu. A drive well worth ed to take. The Panagsama beach( 5 min. trycicle ride from Moalboal ) offers a lot of hotels at a very low price. A near by, The Pescador Island is one of the well known Dive spot.
    Wile in Panagsama , the echo tourist enthusiast , can take a side trip to Bala to the UpHill residence ( 15 min away on Motorbike - 50 pss one way). Located high on top of the hill the residence offer excellent view of the Pescador Island. Miss Popa Doran Matilos ( Remi ). The owner of this idyllic small typical Filipino cottage can offer a refreshing glass of water and ice cream.

    Home of Senor Sto. Nino de Cebu. The image was a gift of Ferdinand Magellan to Queen Juana in 1521. This was the same image founded by Legaspi's men in 1565
