The Philippines is made up of more than 7, 600 islands, of which Cebu has around 160 sub-islands. Cebu prides itself for its warmth and relaxing atmosphere – its waters the major source for such mood. Cebu has various natural water types – seas, rivers, falls, lakes, and etcetera. And, the people of Cebu have created ways to enjoy through water ventures … or by simply beach bumming. If you are a water-lust, Cebu is the place to be. Sport in with your rash guard, bikini, or trunks…and prepare to plunge in Cebu waters like you have never experienced before!
What are the top three activities you can do in Cebu waters?
1. Canyoneering in Kawasan Falls
2. Snorkelling or Diving in Pescador Island
3. Bumming in Bantayan Island
Canyoneering in Badian
Cebu canyoneering is a heart-thumping adventure that is relished in Kawasan Falls in Badian, Cebu. What is striking with this kind of canyoneering is that it is not just filled with trekking or hiking, but swimming, flowing and jumping in the waters. The fresh, cool water of Kawasan Falls makes Kawasan canyoneering distinct from your typical canyoneering journey.
Record how you are able to make that once-in-a-lifetime achievement of leaping off from a 30 to 40 feet cliff toward the different levels of falls thru a waterproof camera.
Plus, enjoy the thrill and the coolness of this freshwater experience thru Cebu canyoneering in the tropical feel of Cebu south. And do not forget to notice and gape your eyes and mouth from the appreciation of idyllic Kawasan Falls scenery.
Snorkelling or Diving in Pescador Island
Pescador Island is a tiny island in Moalboal, which is also in the southern part of Cebu. This island hides specular underwater gems of psychedelic corals, colourful, diverse fishes, and magnificent sea creatures.
Ocular sighting through snorkelling and diving in this island transports you to a whole new dimension. You are brought to an aquatic trip you can only see in movies, like Finding Nemo, or in lavish gigantic aquariums. This time, snorkelling or diving in Pescador Island is the real deal.
Use your underwater camera to capture the fishes surrounding you as you feed them. Also, get up close and personal with turtles and sardines (in their amazing sardine run).
Bumming in Bantayan Island
Cebu is loaded with breathtaking islands, and one of the affordable and sought after spots in the Bantayan Island of the north. If you are a locale trying to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life, you can make a 5 to 6 hour trip from the city to reach this precious island.
Bantayan Island calms you with its tranquil environment where only the waves of blue waters swish and splash to quiet you. The island is also ideal for swimming with its white, pristine sands and clear waters.
You can even get your perfect tan by just lying on the sands while the beach wind soothes your body. This is a perfect getaway for busy people who crave for chilling and bumming in the hot and windy site.
Energize your unchallenged souls or still your stressed bodies by immersing in the waters of Cebu. The best way to do this is to pursue the exciting Cebu canyoneering in Kawasan, snorkel and dive in Pescador Island, and relax and dip in Bantayan Island waters.
