We left the house at 4 o’clock in the morning for Malapascua Island, an Island at the very northern tip of Cebu. It’s approximately 150 kilometers from Cebu City proper and will take you around 3.5 hours of travel, going at an easy 60km/h. It’s a long journey but it’s worth the ride!
As you go north, you’ll encounter acres upon acres of sugarcane plantations.
For the next three hours or so, all you see ahead is a seemingly endless road.
After the long vast lands, you will find the road taking you to a winding mountain path where you will encounter a 5 kilometer dirt road. So better make sure your suspensions are in good shape! It’s a bad idea to experience a break down in the middle of nowhere! 😉
The very tip of Cebu is a port which should take you to Malapascua Island for the price of P80 (Not bad).
Once aboard the boat, make sure to get a good seat because there’ll be 14 other tourists joining you for the ride. The boat won’t leave until there are 15 passengers on board. So for as long as there are no 15 passengers, the boat won’t depart. Unless you want to pay 15 worth of tickets (P80/person). 😉
Surprisingly, the Island itself is still another 30 minutes away. So sit back and enjoy the breeze and sight. It’s not everyday you get to travel by boat so make the most out of it!
Finally, we see the shore of the resort!
The Flags really add to the festive spirit.
The sands had a powdery finish. It was heavenly.
Look who decided to greet us a good morning!
Eh? What’s he doing here?
It was almost time to taste the beach!
The pool was so inviting but it was surely to be steaming hot after baking in the sun all morning.
Forgive my dad. He’s the ultimate photo-bomber! Peace, Dad! 🙂
Note: They use salt water for the faucet. So I strongly suggest you use that mineral water over there for brushing your teeth! Also, it’s completely potable. 😉
This shot was just priceless. I’m pretty we sure don’t know the man in the silhouette and he, us.
Mouth, meet breakfast!
Amazingly, there are locals living on the Island as well! So don’t be surprised to see houses behind the resorts!
My Dad and I rode a motorcycle to the other side of the island and found this paradise!
The front beach during noon time.
Meet lunch! Although the taste and experience could have matched the price!
The other resorts along the beach.
Tsk tsk. And I thought he was against unnecessary attachments?
Was waiting for the sunset.
What happens in a beach, stays in a beach! 😉
This made me smile. A German tourist talked to the locals, trying to get to know who they are and what they want to be when they grow up.
That’s a sunset.
Meet dinner! As you can see, I eat alot. 😀
A few minutes before sunrise.
Everything seems so peaceful right before the sunrises.
The early fisher gets the fish indeed.
I’ve never been this tall all my life!
Good bye was inevitable!
Only one direction left: Home. 🙂
Until my next return!
