Turtles regularly swim around the waters of Panagsama Beach in Moalboal

That elusive photo chasing a sardine run, that priced selfie with a marine testudine, and that noteworthy beach camp gracing the sunset are just few of the expectations listed on every Moalboal goer. Moalboal, a once sleepy town seating 90 kilometers southwest of Cebu City, offers a laid-back vibe. Stunning white strips adorn its edges, where clear and calm ripples regularly wash off the shore. Beneath are unassuming underwater wonders. Sea turtles are frequently seen Read more

Malapascua's North Beach front

Malapascua is one of the smallest inhabited island in the Philippines. It only measures 2.5 by 1 kilometer. Being home thresher sharks, manta rays, and diverse coral species, Malapascua became a famous dive site. The island is also a host to multiple white-sand beaches and interesting rock formations. Malapascua, by the way, floats 6.8 kilometers northeast of Cebu island. I’ve been receiving recommendations to see Malapascua since I moved to Read more

Batad rice terraces

Waking up wrapped in a dawn chill, on a hill that is thousand meters above, overlooking a seemingly natural man-made creation, which size is as colossal as the mountain that holds it is truly remarkable. Reaching it may be a frowner to some, however, you’ll forget all about the difficulties when you finally see Batad Rice Terraces, the most popular among the rice terraces of the Cordilleras. Batad, along with 4 Read more

Manggahan Festival Guimaras

Getting to Guimaras is an awfully long journey from Cebu. The two lengthy bus rides and the three rough see crossings discouraged my friends from joining. It was a rushed and spontaneous travel spree, so plane tickets were unjustly expensive. Eventually, only two of the more than five interested pushed through with the tour. We headed to Cebu’s North Bus Terminal few minutes past midnight to make sure that we Read more

karap-agan falls

When I set my eyes on something, I’ll make sure to do everything to achieve it. I will only stop if pursuing is really impossible and life-threatening, especially when it comes to travel goals. That was why, when I set my course to Matalom, Leyte, I set my expectation pretty clearly—that before I cross to Canigao Island, I should experience Hitoog Cave and Karap-agan Falls first. That was the only Read more

Ian Limpangog while wading the shallows of Mahaba Island with Himokilan Island in the background

The Labor Day weekend altered the hushed atmosphere of Inopacan. Travelers and tourists flocked the boulevard to get a slot of the first batch of boat departures, which at that time, ran out really fast. It was still six in the morning, yet the dispatcher’s booth was overwhelmed with the swarm of excited as well as incited individuals. We were fortunate to be the first ones on the queue. Cuatro Read more

Biri, Northern Samar: Bel-at Tidal Pool

Being stressed and angled for minutes, my elbow pit had started to feel uncomfortable. My palms were itching too, yet I couldn’t let go of my grip. I could also feel my calf and feet trembling, but resting them was not among the choices. For some reasons, commuting was pretty difficult on that part of Samar on Holy Week. I was hanging at the back of the jeepney, breaking a Read more
