A Weekend in Moalboal
Just a few weeks after my Malapascua trip, I headed off to my next beach destination — Moalboal Island located in Cebu, Philippines. I was invited by one of my best friends to stay in her house with her beautiful family.
It was such a fun weekend. We celebrated her sister’s birthday, went gleaning, and had an endless chat session.
Moalboal (pronounced as mo-ahl-bo-ahl) is just 2-3 hours away by bus or by van from Cebu City. It has two main beach destinations: Panagsama and Bas Daku, both of which offer easy access to Pescador Island, a famous diving spot which is located just a few kilometers off its coast. For scuba divers out there, you shouldn’t miss Pescador.
We opted for Bas Daku as Panagsama beach doesn’t have white sand. Bas Daku has a long coastline with white sand beach and an array of beachfront hotels and hostels. Going to the center of town from Bas Daku is also very easy and takes only a few minutes by tricycle.
If you’re planning for a quick weekend getaway, Moalboal is one great choice!
Ahhh, I completely missed this when I was in the Philippines. We went over the water from Cebu city to another island, I can’t remember the name now! So many places to see if I go back to the Philippines.
That sounds so exciting!
Maybe, Bohol? :)
I hope you can explore the Philippines again soon!
Beach time is always a good thing. Great pics!
Couldn’t agree more :)
And thank you!
Looks like a great destination to simply relax and soak in the sun!
That’s right! :)
Seems real fun! Nice to have friends with beach houses, hehe. :)
Looks like a stunning place to visit and sounds like you had so much fun. We would love to chill out in a place like this when we visit the Philippines this year!
Yes, I highly recommend this beautiful island. It usually takes about 5 hours by bus from the city but it’s worth it. :)
Wow, what a beautiful part of the world! Thanks for sharing :)
Thank you too for reading :)
Lovely pictures. Phillipines must be amazing.
Thank you :)
I hope you can visit the Philippines. :)
Looks like you had a fun time! Gotta love beach destinations in the summer! And it’s always a great experience to get shown around a place by locals!
Nothing more like experiencing it the local way. :)

It’s always a great feeling playing with your besties on the beach. ^_^
