Tan-awan

Do you remember Destiny from Finding Dory? That near-sighted, adorable whale? Well, this is your chance to see her brothers and sisters! Right in Cebu! Tan-awan, Oslob is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Cebu because of their whale-shark watching.

The place itself is gorgeous, covered in white powdery beaches and blessed with brilliantly blue waters. Visitors have been flocking Tan-awan in Oslob to see these magnificent creatures up close. Also located in the area are several resorts you can choose from. No need to be concerned about looking for a place to stay!

Watching these gentle giants glide in the water as you swim along beside them is quite the experience! And it’s not dangerous at all, either. These butandings (whale sharks) are nothing but large teddy bears! They’re filter feeders too, so you don’t have to worry at all.

Other than that, Tan-awan is home to the incredible Tumalog Falls. Just a short trip through a tropical forest, the Tumalog Falls is a small patch of cascading waters and a cold swimming hole. Clean and refreshing, the place is great for a little R&R with a couple of friends or family.

Sumilon Island is also in Tan-awan; the island itself is stunning. Perfect for a little soul-searching or just plain old beach frolicking! Not far from the island is Tan-awan’s Heritage Park. Dotted with remnants of Cebu’s past, the area is a great way to start if you want to have a peek at the place’s history.
