Apo Island Dive Resort

Apo Island, being a marine sanctuary, is a popular dive spot. In fact, the island was listed on the 2008 version of Sport Diver Magazine’s top 100 diving spots in the world. Guests spend most of their time exploring the depths of its surrounding waters to meet and greet with its inhabitants. Vast coral conglomeration, gentle swimmers, and colorful forage circle its deep. The underwater communities thrive as they are Read more

Boodle Art & Beyond, and its sister, Dessert Studio and Restohaus recently opened their doors to Cebu’s discriminating palate, which added a unique spin to the already diverse and rich culinary options in the metro. The idea-turned-family-business originally started at an extra space at home. When the business gained traction and interests from neighbors, friends, and travelers, the home space could not accommodate the surge. The idea of expanding became Read more

kalanggaman island

Even the sun wasn’t up yet, I already noticed the unusual gloom. Clouds hovered really low, and the intermittent drizzles didn’t seem favorable. From afar, I could hardly draw the horizon as it was blurred by the draping downpour. The gale warning signal issued by a local climate authority discouraged the plan further.

A watchman was seated in front; our guide was positioned at the end seat, while the captain stood near the rear bow. Since there are no outriggers, it shook a lot when we started hopping in. However, as it started moving, the boat was steady and smooth. The Read more

Docked at Pandanon Island

It was azure at first. But as we approached the shallow water of Pandanon Island, the tint of the water slowly turned viridescent. We all witnessed how the water gradually shifted from all the shades in between blue and green. The squeaky-clean sea makes the corals 10 feet below pretty evident. And as the corally feature morphed to sand, the 6-feet looked more like a knee deep. Pandanon island, by Read more

Dakak Beach Resort

Tired from an overnight ferry that brought us to Dapitan from Cebu City, my appreciation for things stooped to its lowest levels. I preferred lying down or staring at the ceiling instead of going out and making conversations with other delegates. Since I came from work the day before, it was double the drowsiness. I was able to sleep on the boat, but I woke up every now and then, Read more
