Virgin Island in Bantayan

Follow nenskeis on

As the pump-boat slowed down, I was slowly falling in-love of its beauty as we approached the Virgin Island in Bantayan.

As you know, the Philippines has a lot of islands to offer, from local to foreign people. There are definitely some that you are already eyeing to go to – like Boracay or Palawan. But I am happy to share that I found paradise in Cebu. Yes, you read it right, paradise!


When my friend told me that we should not miss the Virgin Island in Bantayan, my first thought was the island that I had visited once in Bohol. I did not realize until my friend clarified that the Virgin Island in Bohol is a different island too. (Oooh, a lot of untouched islands here in the PH :P)

As usual, we enjoyed the beautiful island during sunset, which was truly amazing. However, you should stay here from morning or noon to experience more of it. At least then you can say that the entrance fee you pay is worth it. HAHA. Apparently, White Beach is not free. LOL. The island has cottages as well. If you bring food, it’s even better. There are also hammocks around the area, so it will be utterly awesome to stay longer. A bit sad for us because we only stayed for 2 hours. A pump boat ride from Sta. Fe to where we stayed overnight, going to Virgin Island in Bantayan, will take 30 minutes.

The view is really stunning during sunset or sunrise, we had our Hawaii pose here too. 😛

I am sure that this won’t be my last time here. See you soon beautiful island.
