White Sands at Bantayan Island
There’s nothing more I crave for every start of the summer (besides a good meal and ice cream) than going to the beach. It literally beckons me. It’s a family tradition and one that I’ve kept alive now that I have my own family. This year, we decided to visit Bantayan Island which is just a bit north-west of Cebu in the Visayan Sea.
First, you will need to fly to Cebu unless you’re already there. From Manila, we took a very early flight to Cebu so that we could get to the island by noon. Once we arrived at the airport we headed straight to the taxi stand. You’ll head to the North Bus terminal and take a bus to Hagnaya. The bus ride will take about 3 hours so make sure to pack some snacks. The taxi ride will cost you about P120 – P150, while the bus ride will cost P150 as of today’s writing.
