Diving, relaxing, good atmosphere

If you get tired of diving and swimming take a bus south to Badan and take the 1.5km walk to Kawasan Falls, there are actually 3 of them. There is now an expensive resort there so take your own food and drink. Cottages and rafts are available to rent, or you can stay overnight. The first falls are by far the biggest with a deep clear pool. There...more
On the "main street" on Panagsama beach you can find the Last Filling Station with a perfect view, friendly staff, and a very good menu. Prices might be slightly higher than in some of the other places, but who cares when a meal with beer is still less than 3 USD?
Favorite Dish: They have red and green thai curry, that taste almost not at all like thai curry, but it's still very good!
They have a pool table, good music, fair Italian food and cheap beer and friendly staff and costumers. It's one of the favorite meeting places for the foreigners working in Moalboal (diving u know).
And if you're lucky the two very charming young girls, Gloria and Rose, are still working there!
Dress Code: Anything - just wear something, don't show up without a t-shirt in the evening.
No not the snakes in the road but the ones that try and charge you P80 to take you from the bus stop to Panagsama beach when you have just paid that to get from Cebu city on the bus. Start walking and they will soon knock 30 off the price. Or do what I did and walk all the way.........it takes about half an hour.
Long free diving fins - cressi gara 2000 are good
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: spear gun - but don't bring this through Hong Kong.

There is an agency offering very exciting "river climbing" tours along the Kawasan waterfalls outside Moalboal.It's called Planet Action and is located in Moalboal.For the river climbing tour you should be quite fit and adventurous because it's rather exhausting and slippery - be careful.Don't take things with you which shouldn't get wet - you...more
It was a lot of fun to do a horse riding excursion through the Cebu jungle. The horses were quite small, but very fast and in a good mood... They didn't have "normal" horse riding equipment, so we sat on old rice sacks bent around the horses back... But it was quite ok and (almost) nobody went down...more
