“From the city, we go to the Northern part of Cebu where a magnificent Island lies – Camotes Island. The travel time from Cebu city to Danao Port (which is where you ride on a boat toward the island) is about 1 hour. From Danao port, traveling by the sea takes two hours. Camotes Island gives you numerous attractions to go to. In a day, you can go to a lake, to a cave, to an islet, and of course, to beaches. To maximize your time, it is best to be there for more than a day though. Visit Santiago Beach which has a long, white shoreline; Mangodlong Rock which has picturesque blue and green waters; Lake Danao which has a serene green lake where you can use a kayak to land on the mini land in the center; Bukilat Cave which you can swim in with its fresh cold waters; Tulang Diyot which is a paradise-like islet with its white sand and alluring waters. Other equally great places are Timubo Cave, Holy Crystal Cave, Paraiso Cave, Buho Rock Beach Resort, Busay Falls, Bakhaw Beach. Again, Camotes Island is abounding in spots to go to…stay there for 3 days for best vacation experience.”
