Bantayan Island Getaway

Ron and I have been looking into a 2 to 3-day getaway to just unwind and celebrate our second wedding anniversary and we ended up in Bantayan Island at the northern tip of Cebu, which is just around 4 hrs away from the city.


I booked for a beach front cottage in kota Beach Resort for about $40 and the Nipa hut was quite good. We all had the beach to ourselves and another couple as January is not quite a month for beach bummers, so we enjoyed every inch of the beach and enjoyed good food and great service as well.



The only thing I did not enjoy was the jellyfish sting which felt like a whiplash on my left arm. It left my skin red, painful and itchy. But with the amazing sandbars and beautiful beach in front of us, i could not help but try the waters again, but of course, with extra caution this time.


I was not able to get a glimpse nor a photo of the sun setting in this small island but i definitely did not want to miss the sunrise, so we woke up early, strolled the entire sandbar on the beach and finally got a glimpse of the rising ball of fire.


We also went to other parts of the island where old churches and other attractions await us. We rented a motorcycle for a day and toured the island ourselves.

You can see other sights of the island here.
