I have realized in the past few weeks off writing on this blog that this needs attitude. Blogging needs passion for writing, commitment for updates, and patience for learning. I began realizing the effort bloggers are making to constantly give informative entries to their readers. Though still ludicrous to consider this as a profession nowadays, time will come it can be a B.A. or an A.B. in college. Because surprisingly this whole blogging thing is not only about writing and posting. So anyway, what I wanted to imply is I became too preoccupied with other things that I almost deactivated this blog. Good thing, someone encouraged me for doing otherwise. And that’s why I am back with an amazing experience, transportation fiasco aside, from another island in Cebu. CAMOTES ISLAND.
I have recently found out that Camotes Island is actually a group of islands composed of 3 majors and 1 minor islet. I always thought that it was like Sumilon Island that composed of one Located 34 nautical miles (approx. 54 kms.) away from Cebu City, you need to ride a RORO ship to go to this still not-so commercialized island. I had a bad experience about riding Jomalia ship to and fro the island but I do not want to spoil my wondrous experience by focusing on the fixers I had to deal with and some shipping line personnels’ lapses.
Lake Danao Park- a lake park where you can do picnic, fishing, and boating. A paddle boat is available for you to go around the lake. You can also use the boat in going across a small island at the center of the lake. The park opens 6:00AM to 6:00PM.
Timubo Cave-located 300 meters from barangay proper of Sonog, Camotes. Going inside the cave is an adventure. The cave has a medium opening going in. You have to walk through a long winding staircase to reach the end of the cave, where you can find crystal clear pool of water. People enjoy swimming here because of the experience going inside, and a very nice place to swim. It is not recommended for the faint of heart, and physically unfit.
Santiago White Beach-has a whole white sandy beach with a long shortline. You can bring stuff with no corkage fee. Huts are also available with low fee for you to use. It is best to swim during high tide. You can also sing your heart out in karaoke during the wee hours of the night, til around 1:00AM-2:00AM.
***All attraction spots descriptions are from www.tourcamotes.com.
Or you can simply unwind in front of your resort or accommodation.
And have some photo ops.
And have a glimpse of sunset.
So that’s how I spent my weekend. So still planning on your own vacation? Try visiting this island. It’s cheaper compared to other places. 😄 Till next time. XOXO
