Bantayan (Sta Fe) Escapade

Have you ever though of spending a long weekend to Boracay but doesn't have enough resources to go there? The good thing of living here in Cebu is we have easy access to white sand beaches that doesn't cost much and would still feel like you're in Boracay sand.

Sta Fe, Bantayan Island boost a long stretch of white beach like Boracay Island. The main difference is that it has not been commercialized like Boracay Island. You can still experience the laid back feeling and have the beach all by yourself.

Access to Bantayan is convenient and doesn't cost much. From the city you can ride a bus in North Bus Terminal to Hagnaya for a fare of 150 pesos, maximum. Then a ride to Sta Fe for an hour with a ferry for 100 pesos.

You'll be welcomed with white sand beach and crystal clear water at Sta Fe Wharf. There are a lot of choices for resort that can offer very affordable rate, to name a few there's Sugar Beach, Rummel's, Ogtong Cave, Mayet's Place and Sta Fe Beach Club.

It is best to bring tent and some food to save for accommodation and unlike Boracay, restaurants and food shoppe are scarce. But you can always wait for fishermen as they duck there boats and buy some of there catch for a seafood treat. The fish is fresh and it will really make a good meal.

You'll also get to experience the island life since fishing village are within the area.So why deprive ourselves with white sand beach? Get out and get some tan!
