since i've already been to boracay (2x!) and puerto galera(2x!) this season, i have just confirmed another exciting beach trip to bantayan island. i'm super excited. bantayan is an island at the northern tip of cebu and it's been quite awhile since i've been to cebu. i've heard so many good things about bantayan and after seeing so many horrendous pictures of boracay this season, i am relieved to have found a seemingly gorgeous alternative. i guess when you get to our age, the hedonistic lifestyle that is boracay gets a little boring and old. you can only get stoned and drunk so much and the boracay waters are fugly with its moss. eek. and who wants a beach filled with the same faces you see on a typical night out in manila?
look at the beautiful beaches of bantayan!!
from what people have been telling me, bantayan is like boracay in the early 90's...without the zooming helicopters, without the spring break-like atmosphere, without the overpriced drinks, without the crazy banners littering the pristine white beaches. sounds like a great place to me. and we also got our package at such a good rate, PhP7,500(USD 136!!!) per person which includes airfare, accomodations(3D/2N), transfers, taxes,tours, daily breakfast and we're staying at kota beach. needless to say, my friends and i are very excited!
any who has been to bantayan already? care to share your experience? things of note? tips? suggestions? anything will be greatly appreciated!
