KRIS’ PINAS SERIES: South Cebu

KRIS’ PINAS SERIES: South Cebu

I have been traveling for years and have gone to so many beautiful places around the world. But, immediately after my recent out of the country trip, I realized how much of our country I haven’t explored yet. And since it is a known fact to Filipinos and foreigners alike that when it comes to almost anything, #itsmorefuninthephilippines, I have decided to dedicate my next escapades in promoting my beloved country, the Philippines. And so for my first stop, I went to South Cebu!

I have been to Cebu before, but my favorite, and the part of it that is very close to my heart, would have to be its south region, where the towns of Moalboal, Badian, and Samboan are located, as well as the town of Oslob.

For this South Cebu adventure, we particularly set our eyes and foot on Sumilon, an island in the town of Oslob. One would need to take a 10-minute boat ride to reach Sumilon, a small, government-owned island. This island is leased by the Local Government to Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort, the lone resort in the island, and by far, the most luxurious accommodation in the entire South Cebu region. As the environment protector of the island, Bluewater Sumilon ensures that the locale is spotless, and the marine life surrounding it remains untouched. They are very environment-friendly that they do not use plastic straws in their bars and restaurants. They also strongly adhere to proper waste disposal and proactively contributes to nature conservation.

As I mentioned earlier, Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort is the most luxurious resort in South Cebu. It may be rated as a 3-star hotel; but everything about it, for me, is hands-down 5 stars! Their food, accommodation, facilities, services and all are absolutely first-class.

Upon arrival, we were courteously escorted to our villa, and I was outright amazed by how beautiful the place is – as in sobrang ganda! We were given the privilege to stay in the 1-bedroom Pagi Villa, which is normally for honeymooners. The villa has a cozy plunge pool perfect for taking fabulous Instagram shots. It has its own bathtub, a super king-size bed, a fancy TV area, and almost all amenities that any guest would need. Pagi Villa is more than just a comfy place to stay. It is, without a doubt, luxury-level for me. Our suite is gloriously placed on a cliff with the perfect view of the sea. The place is so spacious, it even has its own lounge area and a garden.

Staying in Bluewater Sumilon is an experience of a lifetime that you’ll not need to take long to get accustomed and attached to this paradise. I even have my top 3 favorite spots in Blue Water that I really love so much.

First is the very scenic Sumilon Sandbar. It is the part of Sumilon where the sun sets, and it is ideal for taking those amazing sunset shots by the beach. It is very clean with its powdery white sands, and one can really get in touch with nature by simply staring at the vast sea surrounding it. The sandbar is open to public, with daily boat services that can be availed for a certain day-tour fee. However, for visitors who are not booked in Bluewater Sumilon, the sandbar is only open between 9AM to 4PM. Luckily for us, we were able to enjoy the serenity and beauty of the sandbar to ourselves at our most convenient and most private time.

My next favorite part of the resort is its Infinity Pool, where we took several candid shots for my Instagram feed. The pool is strategically located with a splendid view of the sea. I really enjoyed dipping by the pool while feasting on the magnificent landscape. Nothing can be more relaxing than that! They have another pool, which was newly constructed, and it was, just like the Infinity Pool, astonishingly mesmerizing. 

And my #1 favorite feature of Bluewater Sumilon is their opulent Glamping Room; which is, not to exaggerate, the most unique and most wonderful feature of all. Their Glamping Rooms are fully-air conditioned and are similar to the lavish tents in South Africa. It is generously surrounded by plush nature, with teeming forest trees, flawlessly chalky white sands, and an unparalleled view of sunrise by the sea. Matter of fact, Bluewater Sumilon offers the most extravagant and most comfy glamp-life in the entire Philippines. They have the most iconic glamping area, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee while marveling at the adorable sunrise, or for taking those fabulous instagrammable shots.

More than just being the best Glamping Site in the country, they also offer the best services. During our entire stay, we were provided with our very own camp master, a special staff dedicated to assisting its guests. Our camp master prepared breakfast for us and even lit for us a bonfire when it started getting dark. The camp master made all the preparations for us and made sure that our stay was no less than terrific. And believe me, the experience was utterly surreal!

Bluewater Sumilon offers accommodation rates with inclusive breakfast, or one may opt to avail their full-board accommodation offerings. Their rates also include free boat transfers from the mainland of Oslob to the island of Sumilon. For rates, please visit http://www.bluewatersumilon.com.ph/. More than that, Blue Water has a property in Mactan, Cebu, too! Bluewater Maribago is only a 15-minute drive from the airport. It is a huge family-friendly resort, with design and aesthetics much identical with Bluewater Sumilon, anyone can be assured of having a great time!

Aside from Sumilon, there are other must-go-to places in South Cebu that one should never miss to visit. And since we were already in the area, we made sure that we have ticked every prestigious destination that we can set foot on. And so, without further ado, here is a short list of things to do while in South Cebu.

Go Whale Shark Watching in Oslob. Whale Shark watching is one of the most infamous activities to do while in Cebu, and of course, we didn’t miss it for the show. However, I didn’t take pictures during this activity because I’m not a very huge fan of it. In Oslob, I have witnessed how the whale sharks – whose natural source of nourishment are plankton – were fed with shrimps to attract them and make the area touristy. Seeing locals and tourists do this made the encounter feel a bit zoo-ish for me. I strongly advocate preservation of the animals’ natural habitat, and I think that altering the whale sharks’ feeding pattern might someday put the wildlife in peril. I must admit that seeing the whale sharks really made my heart skip a beat, but if ever I would want to encounter them again, I’d rather see them in the likes of Leyte or Bicol, where they are not treated as circus attractions.

Visit the famous Kawasan Falls. Kawasan Falls is located in Badian, Cebu. It is the most iconic of the 3 famous waterfalls in South Cebu, and is also the most-visited. Many bloggers and famous influencers, like my idols in travel blogging @captainpotter, @doyoutravel, and @jackson.grove, have visited Kawasan Falls because of its picturesque, Gatorade Blue waters. People go there to have picnics, and with its booming commercial status, I have a feeling that it is probably the most crowded waterfalls in the Philippines. It is too crowded that you would need a huge amount of luck to take astonishing pictures. But if you want to enjoy Kawasan Falls at its best and at its most peaceful, you will need to wake up early! If you leave at 5:00 AM (badian/alegria) you’d probably get there by 6:30 AM. For sure, there are not much people in the area at that time, and you’re guaranteed to take great shots of the marvelous waterfalls without any hassles. And if you wake up early for this trip and take your workout routines seriously, there will be no need to edit-out any unwanted photobombers and/or flabs from your pictures.. hahaha…😝😝

Check out paradise in Dao Falls. Dao Falls is located in Samboan, and it is, for the record, my favorite waterfalls in Cebu. Not only because it is heavy with the wonders of nature, but also because it is not crowded. I really think that Dao Falls is very underrated, and yet truly captivating. To get there, you would need to take a guided 20-minute trek. Tour Guide services can be availed for free; but, of course, we’ll leave it up to your generosity on how much tip your would shell out for the fine assistance. Expect your jaws to drop on your way to the falls as you marvel at the wonderful works of the earth. The 20-minute, semi-canyoneering adventure is so worth it and is not very exhausting because majority of the path is well-shaded by trees. Reaching the falls is super relaxing on its own. With clean and cold blue waters, plush green surroundings and very peaceful vibe – not to mention that you might often find yourself alone with your group – you would surely feel like you own the place and you’re truly one with it. I strongly encourage people to visit Dao Falls to experience nature at its best, boost tourism in the area, and help the community that protects it.

Go Snorkeling in Moalboal. Moalboal is the snorkeling and diving capital of Cebu, and is very popular for having untouched coral reefs. Marine life in the area is so highly protected that one could get himself in serious trouble by merely touching them. Moalboal is also known for the Sardine Ruins where one can get lucky to take those magnificent underwater shots. The town also features a Turtle Watching Adventure, similar to those in Apo Island. Luckily for us, during our snorkeling venture, not only did we see turtles underwater, we saw large tortoises swimming in the depths of the sea, and they were so heartwarming to watch.

It was not my first time to visit Cebu, but I would have to say that this visit was the most memorable of all. It was more than just an ordinary swish local trip for me. We learned so much about nature, and we were able to really get in touch and connected to it. This adventure reawakened and ignited my advocacy to protect Mother Earth. South Cebu is but a small part of our beautiful country, but it already speaks of the many wonderful creations of God that we are yet to see. Let us all do our part to save our planet, let alone our country’s natural beauty.

I would definitely replace city life for a peaceful time in the islands. Stay tuned for my next adventures in the Philippines because after all, and as always, #itsmorefuninthephilippines.

    It’s so amazing that this post is very big help to all the Filipinos who felt like they are already a foreigner at their own country in the saying (wag maging BANYAGA SA SARILI MONG BANSA), it is so sad but I’m very glad reading this kind of blog that us Filipinos should be the first one to be satisfied by our own wonders and We Filipinos should be the one to promote our own beautiful land. Thanks po for the blog.

    I remember going to Oslob back in 2017 as a side trip to my Sinulog adventure. Because of tight budget, I was only able to glimpse and ogle for this beautiful island from afar. I promised myself should I go back to Cebu visiting this resort should be a must. Still working on that travel fund. Hopefully will get to experience this as a birthday gift this year. Thanks in advance.

    My highschool friends and I will be visiting Cebu this coming May and this blog is very helpfuuuul 🙏🏻 Took a screenshot of every Places you reccommended which we will still filter depending on our budget 😂 Cebu is very special to me because it’s the very first place I ever visited outside my province, Iloilo, and it’s all because of a school travel requirement. It was my first time to ride a plane, and out of excitement I wasnt able to sleep the night before the flight! We werent financially capable to travel then that’s why it’s something major for me. Now I can atleast save up and go to places I love, thank God, but it would be a dream come true to visit this Luxurious place!

Second is, it is really amazing seeing you guys traveling from country to country. From maldives, greece, paris, switzerland, finland and now you go local. And you choose south cebu! Actually I’m originally from ormoc which is a ship away from cebu. It is so touching that you guys, as a travel vlogger promoting the breath taking places and view in south cebu and also encouraging us to love more and explore more about the beautiful places in our country which is the philippines. Hoping to watch your next travel vlog and your instagram posts. 💯♥️

    No doubt Cebu is one of the best Island in the Philippines specially when it comes with the tourist spot. As a travel agent, I always recommend Cebu sa mga client namin na nagtatanong kung ano ang magandang puntahan dito sa Pilipinas, and ofcourse Bluewater Sumilon is one the best Resorts in Cebu no negative comment 😍 Sana one day makapag stay naman ako sa bluewater Sumilon ❤

    Wow. sobrang ganda! For me cebu is the best place to travel for summer. I’ve been cebu once and I would have to say that was the most memorable experience i’ve ever had. Kahit bilang lang ang araw namin dun, sobrang memorable parin at ang saya. Gusto ko sana maexperience yung Go whale shark watching in Oslob.Ang sarap siguro sa feelings ng makakarelax ka sa mga lugar nato at feel ko rin na maganda ang ambiance ng lugar. Peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Kung mapapanalunan ko man to, gusto ko to ibigay sa parents ko.. gusto ko maranasan din nila magrelax sa lahat ng mga pagod at sikap nila para saamin. Gusto ko sila magenjoy karin pangmandalian lang. For sure, magiging masaya sila. For now, di ko pa kayang gawin yung mga bagay bagay kasi wala pa akong kayang ibigay kaya ito nagbabakasakali hehe. Anyways, ang ganda ng blog mo sir Kris.. sobrang detalyado lahat. Nakakaamaze lang talaga. At thank you kasi sa mga blogs mo parang nakakatravel na rin kami. Godbless sir Kris. ☺️❤️😘

    Wow! I cannot wait to go to Cebu. Flight is booked and now, the waiting game. Since ours is gonna be a DIY travel, we’ll surely follow your recommendations, kuya. And of course, we wouldn’t miss Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort. This is gonna be one helluva great experience. We’re so excited!

    I’ve been staying here in Cebu for almost 5 years now and this island is one of my very top list to visit. I love to travel I’ve been in several parts of our country but this island is some what like “mailap” coz we tried to visit it 2 times already but when we arrived in Oslob it says CLOSE due to coastal clean-up (every Wednesday) not sure, coz this is only the day that most of my friends can meet up unfortunately it’s not meant for us now I have a big chance to get here for the third attempt if I can win this promo. I hope I can be the chosen one. Haha (praying)

They might say that it takes a lot of money to travel this much, but the memories created during the course of the trip will remain forever. Nice blog lodi! ^_^

As in decided na ako na dito kami pupunta :)) This will be the first out-of-town trip of my son who will be six months old by then.

Sana ako manalo sa travel giveaway para maexperience ko naman ang classy accomodation ng Bluewater. And para may pamasahe na ako pabalik ng Manila dahil 1 way pa lang napapabook ko na airfare hahaha!

    There’s a lot of places in the Philippines we still need to discover! Some were hidden, untouched yet wanting to be explored by nature enthusiasts. Truly Philippines is more than what our slogan speaks for. It’s worth of our time, money and experiences. I would love to experience this getaway someday. Keep exploring our country, our home.

    I’ve been to Cebu way back in 2015 but for acad/studies related purposes. I haven’t got the chance to visit the beautiful beaches and other places in Cebu. Reading your whole blog about your experience in Cebu excites me to go back there and enjoy the place. As in WOW! Nakakaexcite bumalik but this time Para magbeach, kumain ng masasarap na pagkain, at magrelax. Gusto ko rin maexperience yung falls, yung clamping etc.

    Of all the places that you’ve been, I only have the chance to visit the kawasan falls. Indeed it is the most iconic falls I’ve ever seen and it was a jaw dropping experience seeing it for the first time. Amidst the short trail going to the falls, it was all worth it.l and so far the lane towards the falls is the most cleanest and clearest lake I’ve ever seen in my entire life so far. By the love you’ve given to us kuya Kris, thank you for giving us atleast the chance in experiencing your trip through this blog. And joining your giveaway will give us probability to experience our nature. With that being said, “I want to win the Giveaway “ is an understatement. The joy that i am feeling and the excitement that I have cannot be expressed into words and hoping that this would be my graduation gift the upcoming april 5. Thank you and more blessings to come 💞

    As per reading the blog, I am now agreeing that the Bluewater Sumilon *NEEDS* to be rated 5 stars!!! Aside from its location is on a “paradise”, their facilities are impressive(did a small research). Also, kudos to them in preserving the place just the way it is. Would love to visit Bluewater Sumilon and experience the best Glamping place! #BestGlampingEver

    I’ve been to Bluewater Sumilon 3 years ago with my partner and reading your blog entry makes me miss the place so much. You described the place so well and that is how I remembered it and have it pictured in my mind. South Cebu is so wonderful we keep coming back. I went swimming the whaleshark and visited Moalboal, Kawasan and Tumalog. I’m a pure blooded Caviteña but deep in my heart, I can truly say how I love and miss South Cebu so much! Thank you for this post. It makes me want to go back to South Cebu again.

    Great place to chill with someone special! I would definitely visit this paradise on summer. Thanks kris for sharing your experience. Can’t wait on your next travel destination!
