  • I went in one of island hopping in Mactan Island departure. You can see the vast mangrove forest and shallow waters straight long stone road is located in the mangrove forests, walking out there and go all the way. We could see the scenery in a quiet very beautiful and inspiring.

  • Positives: - not far from Cebu, the crossing is fast - just half a day - out not expensive if you take an Agency (take the boat to the port of the Hilton, 1 boat all fixed hours, price 15 pesos, the ride or 30 AR + 1 tax, once there take a tuk tuk to the sanctuary about 120 pesos). Negatives:-not much to see, the birds come out very early in the morning or at sunset - at low tide, no possible snorkeling from the beach
