    Green Lagoon Park

    Green Lagoon Park is our take-off point from Compostela, Cebu to Camotes Island. The resort has the same owner as Santiago Bay Resort & Mangodlong Rock Resort in Camotes Island. The park is nice & huge. It has picnic huts for day use. I can also see some rooms for overnight accommodation. The place is private with its own gate. Perfect for a day's swim.

    Lake Danao Park

    Lake Danao Park
    4 more images

    All 700 hectares of fresh water, it is the biggest and the only natural lake in Cebu. Home to the purple heron and the Philippine wild duck, the lake is a government-designated bird sanctuary. You can take a boat and picnic at the lake’s islet, or fish for tilapia and have it grilled at Green Lake Park or Lake Danao Park afterwards, which was developed by present municipal mayor, Hon. Al Arquillano. Very serene and nice, its my favorite place of the whole Camotes Island Tour.

    Bukilat Cave

    Bukilat Cave
    3 more images

    Bukilat cave in the town of Tudela is one of the more explored caves in the town. There is a shallow pool of water illuminated by natural skylights where guests can take a dip. The cave is an hour from the resorts. Entrance fee is P10 per head. The place is really far on the opposite side of the island & a visit to the cave lasts only a few minutes. Not really worth going to in my opinion.

    Buho Rock

    Buho Rock in Poro town is a local government-run destination with cottages for day picnics. It is less than an hour from the resorts. It has the same owner as Santiago Bay Resort & Mangodlong Rock Resort. The place is very tranquil with nice views. We had the place all to ourselves when we went there. Its better if the owner will post a signage coz we had a bit of difficulty reaching the place.

  • El Gecko Restobar

    by maryville Written Aug 15, 2007

    Found a place in the heart of Uptown district in Cebu City, El Gecko Restobar. A popular haunt of expats and locals with great international food, the cheapest beer in town, 30 peso and fantastic people. Multi screen TVs playing music DVDs and very welcoming staff!! I was new to the city and the regulars helped me with everything I wanted to know. Accommodation, places to see, etc. Big shout out to the owner, Marc, who even jumped in a cab with me and took me to a club. He stayed for a couple of beers until I met some people then went off back to work. Amazing bloke!!! Check it out!!!

    Colon Street

    by barbskie Written Feb 27, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The heart of downtown Cebu named after Cristobal Colon. Also known as the Parian District and known as the oldest street in the country built by the Spaniards during the time of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. A glittering area by night lined with Cinemas, Restaurants, Department stores, and other business establishments. Many universities are situated near or along this popular street like the University of the Visayas(where i was once a student many years ago), University of San Carlos and the University of San Jose Recoletos. A bargain hunter's paradise probably those old stores compared to malls.

    Taoist Temple

    by barbskie Updated Feb 10, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    Located in the wealthy residential suburb of Beverly Hills about 6 km north of downtown Cebu is an enormous Taoist Temple. It was built by Cebu's substantial Chinese community (the Chinese make up about 15% of Cebu's population).
    The temple is the a center of worship for Taoism, the religion which follows the teachings of the ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao Tze. You can see Taoist devotees following their rituals on Wednesdays and Sundays, as they climb the 99 steps of the temple to light joss sticks and have their fortunes read by the monks.
    Built in 1972, the Taoist Temple is constructed in a highly ornate and, some would say, gaudy style of Chinese architecture, and is topped with a pagoda-style roof. The temple has an elevation of 300 meters above sea level, thus if you are at the entrane, you will be rewarded with a good view of Cebu City and in the distance you will see Mactan and Bohol islands. Nice sunset views too.

    Kawasan Falls

    Kawasan Falls consist of 3 levels. You have to hike for 15 minutes to reach the 2nd level from the 1st and another 15 minutes from the 2nd to the 3rd. The trek is pleasant with beautiful views to enjoy. You have to balance on bamboos & huge rocks. One can also see nice mini-falls on the way.

    Kawasan Falls
    4 more images

    In the midst of lush tropical vegetation in the mountains near Matutinao you can find the refreshingly cool, crystal clear Kawasan Falls. They are probably the best waterfalls on Cebu, and the natural pools are great for swimming & rafting (P300/hr). This idyllic place is a good starting point for mountain treks. There is a P10 entrance fee, and they charge P50 for the use of the tables, even if you order a drink with the owner.

    White Beach, Moalboal

    White Beach in Barangay Saavedra has just started to develop as a tourist destination. It is much more quiet around there and the environment retains its original beauty. At the weekend locals from all over the island enjoy the white sandy beach and the clear sea. This is a paradise for nature lovers and for those who prefer it quiet.
