Cebu (Part 2): All Sorts of Water From The South

After the tiring early afternoon trek in Osmena Peak and seeing what the highest peak in Cebu can show, we are off to the first beach in Cebu, which is Moalboal.

I never really knew about Moalboal until I came here. Good thing that my friend Amor is actually from Cebu. Moalboal is located in the southwestern part of Cebu. Pristine white sands and rich underwater are the main selling points of this part of Cebu. Scuba diving, free diving and snorkeling are the activities to do in this part of Cebu.

Since Moalboal is facing on the western part, this means great news – superb sunset. Yes, the sunset here is nice, divine, and breathtaking and all the adjectives I can think of. I always make it a point to see the sunset whenever I am on a vacation.

The Moalboal Sunset

The following day, we opted to go to one of the islands to see in the Moalboal area which is known as Pescador Island.  This part of Cebu boasts rich marine life that can match the best diving spots to all the places I’ve been to. I never tried scuba diving but by simple doing a free dive or snorkel, you can easily see the greatness needs to be seen just after you jumped off from the boat. I marked this as a must visit place to visit while in Cebu.

After a morning of sea salt, we headed straight to Kawasan Falls. Originally, I did not intend to join this part as you know, I rather be the passive type of traveler, but hey, thank goodness that I’ve given it a go. I never knew that I will have so much fun jumping from a 30-foot waterfall and hurt my butt off after. It was exhilarating yet fulfilling at the same time. We took so many pictures in Kawasan Falls but I honestly think GoPro is not my camera of choice. There are water splashes all over; pictures were out of focused so I guess this part of this vacation will hold dearly in my mind.

Cebu (Part 1): Peek at the Peak

Finally, I will now be able to start my Cebu series. This is way overdue as our Cebu trip happened last October 2016. Honestly though, it felt as if I was just there last week and I feel nostalgic, happy and bittersweet everytime I look at the photos.

Just, Wow!

Greenery For The Win!

If This Is Aint Perfection?

First stop: Osmeña Peak. Ok, I know what you are thinking! Does it mean trekking? Can Orange really trek all the way to the top? Actually, I did given that I am a passive type of tourist who prefers lounging at the beach, enjoying boat rides and the same but trekking or mountain climbing is even on Orange’s vocabulary? Yes, I even surprised myself but I think this would be the few or rare vacations that I will do this and let me say that I have not regretted it at all.

Happy Kid – First Time To Go Up The Mountain

Taking In or Busy With Instagram?

Osmeña Peak is known as the highest point in the island of Cebu. Good thing about climbing the peak is that you do not need to be a pro-mountaineer to enjoy the breathtaking view. All you need to have are friends to talk and joke to on the way up and a lot of water. I think we were fortunate enough that on our way up, the sun is covered by the clouds (and there is fog, even). But I guess we prayed enough and mixed with a little bit of luck that when we reached the peak, the sun let us peek what is there to see at the peak: super nice view.

Peak-A-Boo

Like I said, I have never climbed any mountain and prefer observation deck over anything but Osmeña Peak is on a different level. Have to say that, visiting Osmeña Peak is a must do when you are planning to visit Cebu.

PS. The climb (or more appropriately called walk up) only took us 30 to 40 mins but as per the tour guide, it will only take 15-20 minutes. So I guess you do the math of how slow we walked all the way up. So there.
