Day trip to Sumilon island in Oslob, Cebu

Sumilon is a private island owned by the Bluewater resorts group off Oslob in Cebu. After a surreal whale shark watching experience in the waters of Oslob town proper, most people put a visit to Sumilon on the itinerary, as it is just 20 to 25 minutes away by boat. I must say don't skip going to Sumilon if you're already in Oslob because the sandbar, with its perfect white sand beach, is just so beautiful... Travelers on a budget often just bring food and eat on the boat, before doing some swimming on the beach or just plain sailing. Boat tour operators ... Continue Reading...

Review: Amuma Spa Suite at Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort in Cebu

During the long APEC holiday last year, my daughters and I jetted off to Mactan, Cebu and stayed for several days in Bluewater Maribago resort.
