Sumilon Island, Cebu Island

3.8
Explore an underwater world in one of the many dive spots on Sumilon Island, a chance to take a peek at some of the colorful reefs alive with marine life. Running into a small shark while diving is common here, so don't be surprised if you see one yourself. If you don't fancy diving, take a swim or walk in the clear blue waters that surround the island. At low tide, walk along the white sandbar. Grab a bite to eat at one the restaurants found on or near the beach. As the sand can be full of sharp shells, be sure to bring appropriate beach footwear.
