Off the southern tip of Cebu Province is Sumilon Island, a marine sanctuary complete with nature parks, caves for exploring, kayaks, lagoons and hiking trails.
What to Expect
You pass by interesting towns like Carcar, well known for its bustling shoe-making industry; native delicacies such as “ampao” (sweetened rice crispies) and the famous Carcar made “chicharon” (crispy pork skin). Drive on to Argao, famous for its 400 year-old St. Michael Archangel Church; then to Dalaguete town known as the vegetable capital of Cebu. Finally you reach Oslob, with its old Spanish ruins and church belfry dating back to 1788.

Go snorkeling, swim and sun bathe in its pristine white sand beach, trek to an old lighthouse and an 18th century historical watchtower, or go kayaking in a natural lagoon. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the island and the amenities of a beautiful resort – the Sumilon Island Beach Resort. Head back to the city late in the afternoon.
