Let’s get you to another island of the Philippines famous for their breath-taking white sands, nature springs, and relaxing waterfalls. Adventurous I might say, if you’re really into travelling and hopping from one island to another. Cebu province of the Philippines is one of the top destination when you talk about summer-get-away, family vacations and friends’ road trips. To make it more convenient to the readers out there, here is a list of the top 5 summer-get-away in Southern Cebu.
I really felt the need to share these places to you so that you will have the idea or feeling to come and visit the country, welcomed by the local people and astonishing beaches. Not to mention nature of love and budget travels that come with it.
1. BAS DAKU, MOALBOAL
There are surrounding resorts in this place. It is a long stretch of white sand beach in Moalboal. Tip if you want to get there, it is at their best sight around March – May. These months start and end the summer months of the Philippines and in these months, the beach would shine and the sands would have their best crystalized sight because of the hotness of the weather.
It would be so much better if you have a ride since it would take about 2 and half to 3 hours to get there from South Bus Terminal Cebu City. It is a public beach so you should be allowed to pitch your tents if you want that rather than staying over at resorts and pay for accommodations.

3. KAWASAN FALLS, BADIAN
One of the most visited falls in Southern Cebu. Tourists come in and enjoy swimming and especially trekking under the falls. Believe me, it was one of the most exciting, adventurous, and memorable activity that I had. The water from the falls is just so cold that it’s very fit for summer or when you feel you need to just dive in into an ice cool water. This is the perfect place.
Before you get the waterfall, you will have to walk uphill to get there. Takes about 20-30mins walk. To inform you that Kawasan has three waterfalls, the first one is the largest and the second one is up the first one wherein you will have to climb for 15 minutes and the last is up the second one. The first waterfall is usually crowded because of rafting activities. Rent a raft then men from there will help you experience rafting under the largest waterfall! Exciting!
4. OSLOB CEBU
The most budgeted travel in Southern Cebu accompanying the unique Whale Shark watching and if you dare swimming with the Whale Sharks then that would be a very much unforgettable experience. People who grab this opportunity to go on swimming with the Whale Sharks almost leave a remarkable review from their experience. It is a unique lifetime experience since you don’t often have the chance or know the places who have these marine life. What you see in the picture is exactly the same. They are as big as a bus but don’t overreact, they won’t bite or eat.
