Team Huwaw have decided to go on a little trip to Northern Cebu for our short Halloween break. We’ve decided to explore Malapascua, Kalanggaman—which is in Leyte by the way, and Bantayan Island.

Malapascua Island

malapascua1

Located along the northern coast of Cebu lies a little island called Malapascua, but don’t let its size fool you for this island is a world-class diving hotspot.

The island is known for its white sandy beach called Bounty Beach. It is renowned for its local diving spot as well as further-out site like Gato Island, Monad Shoal, and Kemod Shoal.

There are no TV in the island so no halloween special for us, good thing there are lots of different restaurants in the area. There are nearby sari-sari stores in our hotel so it’s quite convenient.

Kalanggaman Island

Kalanggaman is located at Palompon, Leyte. Just a 2-hour boat ride from Malapascua. It is an island paradise (yes, paradise!) that boasts a long white sandbar.

We were greeted with the majestic view of its pristine waters and palm trees. Good thing is the tide is low so we took the sweetest time to explore the sandbar up to its very tip.

There are few huts on the island that you can rent but we settled to a camping tent which costs P250.

Aside from Police outpost, Medical outpost, and little comfort rooms here and there, there are no establishments and resorts yet in the island.

There are also mini-store stands available. Grilling station is available in case you’re up to a barbecue party while camping, but make sure to bring your own charcoal. #ISLANDLYFE

Aside from swimming, kayaking, banana boat, jet ski, and paddle boarding, there’s nothing much left to do in the island. It’s pretty remote so the signal is weak. All you gotta do when you’re in there is to chill and enjoy the glorious view.

The sun was already setting when we left and I swear this has been one of the loveliest sunsets I’ve seen.

Virgin Island, Bantayan

The Virgin Island is a 20-minute boat ride away from the Bantayan Island proper.

The island is privately owned but visitors are welcome. There’s one restaurant where you can ask them to cook whatever you want in their menu. Though our lunch is inclusive in our tour, we asked for the lady in the restaurant/store for chili garlic crabs. YUMMERZ!

It’s already past noon when we arrived so we had our lunch first.

There are few lounges where you can eat your lunch–it’s free! There are also hammocks in the area for you to chill out. You can play beach volley in front.

We’ve decided to check out the cliff jumping area which is on the other side of the island, in order to get there, you gotta walk through a pathway between this mini-forest of tamarind trees (not sure lol)

The other side of the island is an odd beach where the floor is a solid flat rock. There are hammocks as well. It’s more peaceful and quiet there. Just a few steps away from the cliff jumping area, where you can hear very few people squealing.

The moment we realized that this is not a good idea

By the time we got there, we’ve decided to jump in because YOLO. Good thing there are no people left in there but the life guard and 2 other tourists. I took us a while to muster the courage to jump, we have braved the waters of Kawasan before but this one’s different since we’ll be jumping into an open sea water and the caution signage at the back didn’t really help.

We did it! #YOLO

The life vests aren’t provided, the 2 other tourists are just kind enough to lend it to us since they’re also buying time to get some courage to jump.

We have traveled to 3 different Visayan Islands, it was pretty eventful for a 4D3N-trip. Not bad! The short escape to the ocean is enough to take our minds off the bustle of city life even just for a while.
