Cebu has a lot to offer when it comes to world-class beaches, which are perfect for those who prefer a paradise with lesser crowd. Among others, one that should not be missed is Camotes Island, which is about four hours away from the city. Coming from Manila, we had to ride a plane, taxi, bus, ferry, and tricycle. Was it worth it? DEFINITELY!

One thing that I loved about Camotes is its intimacy. It is a small island with a few people. From where we stayed (Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort) we even had a private beach and a nice pool. Nonetheless, it does not come without a disadvantage. There are few restaurants and nightlife is also almost nonexistent. A lot of places close early. Good thing we have an in-house restaurant in the resort, but it also closes at 10pm.

To enjoy Camotes, I recommend that you take the day tour. Hire a multicab. We did it and paid 1,500 for one whole day for our whole group. Our first stop is the Bukilat Cave, shown in the picture. We visited a couple of other caves. We also wen to Lake Danao and the boardwalk. You can skip these places if you are running short of time. We also dropped by Santiago Beach. It was already late when we arrived at the beach, which is why we were no longer able to swim. We just ate a Pito's Sutukil, which is apparently one of the most popular restaurants in Camotes.

Perfect place for a summer getaway if you don't want to go far from Cebu. You'll surely love the beaches as much as I do.

The stretch of white sand in the afternoon is my favorite. It seems endless.
