Moalboal--taking its popularity nowadays for the tourists. The sea around Moalboal is like an aquamarine stone. It shines when directly hit by the sunlight. At night you can hear the squabbling waves rushing towards the shoreline and feel the wind whispering to your ears saying goodnight. In the morning, you can feel that you're being pulled by the mermaids to join them swimming across the shore. Can you now imagine how Moalboal looks like? Well, if not, I'll give you a glimpse of it.

Moalboal's pride is their fascinating marine life which made them famous for divers and snorkelers who loves exploring the life under the sea. Especially if you are staying in Panagsama Beach, where sardines run is so accessible. 

But me and my friends opted to stay overnight at Basdaku, which is famous for its long stretch of white sandy beach area. You can rent a tent overnight as I heard that as of this year they won't allow to bring and assemble your own tent in the area because some people are leaving their traces or garbages by digging and putting it under the sand (sad).


You can party at your own risk all night long but be mindful of your neighbors (tent). When you wake up, you'll be greeted by the waves that is so excited to meet you. But sometimes we can't avoid the high tides so please check the tides first on your calendars so that you won't wake up in the middle of the ocean inside your tent (kidding). 

How to get there: 

  • From Cebu City, go to South Bus terminal and board a bus going to Moalboal or Bato via Barili. The fare is 130 pesos in an air-conditioned bus. Travel time is about 3 hours depending on the time or day. 
  • You can get off the bus at Gaisano Grand Moalboal or Moalboal Tourism office. From there, take a tricycle or habal-habal (motorcycle) going to Basdaku or Panagsama Beach or wherever place/hotel you are checking in. 


  Take note:  

 If you are just planning to do island hopping, you can directly go to Panagsama beach or Tourism office to pay the environmental fee (100 each) and contact your boat driver. You can also contact me if you need some help so that I can refer you to my preferred guide.
