Backpacking Cebu: Moalboal & Badian

Basdaku (White Beach)

Although I've been to Cebu so many times already, it was my first time to travel to the southern part of the province. I enjoyed chasing waterfalls, sunsets, and sea creatures. 

The underwater world is amazing! Too bad I didn't bring an underwater camera. I also didn't get to dive due to limited time. I'll definitely be back to experience the sardine run in Pescador Island!

If you're planning to go to these places and would need a guide, you may hire Andrew. He served as my guide and guardian angel during my Moalboal-Badian roadtrip. His brother is a dive master at the Magic Island Dive Resort so you may contact to him if you opt to explore the underwater world. Their family also rents out one of their rooms for only P850! That's already with tv, cable, a/c, and wifi. You can also use their motorcycle. You may contact him at 0999-9296923.

How to go to Moalboal:
You may opt to ride a bus bound to Moalboal at the Cebu South Bus Station (Php 115.00) or a van at One Citilink Terminal (Php 100.00). Travel time is about 2.5 hours.

From the highway, hail a tricycle to take you to Panagsama Beach (Badiot) or the White Beach (Basdaku).  Fare should be P65.00-100.00 per way (special trip) or P25.00 per person.

How to go to Badian:
From Moalboal, you may hire a motorcycle to take you directly to the entrance of Kawasan Falls. Buses also go from Moalboal to Badian. 

Budget Accommodation:
Moalboal Backpackers Lodge for as low as P220.00/night for a dormitory-type fan room accommodation.

Sending you happy thoughts...
