Travel Guide: Cebu 3 Day Backpacking Itinerary

I have been getting lots of searches about backpacking southern Cebu so I thought of putting up this post so that you guys can get more information.

On this post I’ll share with you my itinerary for my southern Cebu backpacking adventure, which was only realized after taking the trip… so… I don’t really know if you could call it an itinerary… LOL! any ways here we go.

 Day 1

08:15 – 08:30 Magellan’s Cross
08:30 – 09:30 Hear mass at the Basilica de Sto. Nino de Cebu
09:30 – 10:00 Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral
Transit to Cebu South Bus Terminal
11:30 AM ETA Carcar City
St. Catherine’s Church and Surroundings
Walk from Church to Carcar Rotonda see old houses
12:30 PM Suggestion: Eat some lechon at Carcar’s Public Market near the rotonda
13:00 Take bus going to Boljoon
14:30 ETA Boljoon
Suggestion: go beyond the church and the plaza, I recently discovered there’s more to Boljoon!
15:30 ETD Boljoon going Moalboal
Note: Take a bus going to Bato which is where the terminal is. Then from there take a bus going to Moalboal (no bus goes straight from Boljoon to Moalboal)
  Suggestion: if you could squeez in to your schedule try to see Liloan aka Santander, they have beautiful waters there. So that would make this itinerary +1 day =)
18:00 ETA Moalboal Town Proper
habal-habal to Accomodation
If you still have energy and if it is peak season you can party at the bars in Panagsama beach

Day2

08:00 AM Breakfast
09:00 AM ETD Basdako Beach (white beach)
Note: Being the beach bum that I am I did nothing but bath under the Sun explore the beach and enjoy the clear waters of Moalboal
  Suggestion: Habal-habal drivers will offer you tour packages (which also includes the Basdako beach) that will take you to different tourist spots costs around 500 -600 pesos just haggle your way to lower it down. May be leave earlier so you can still enjoy the beach or maybe add another day for just beach bumming ey!?
12:00 PM LUNCH
16:00 ETD back to accommodation, Dinner and Party

This  are the places that I have been to for two days and if you would notice there are still a lot of places that you can add up to your itinerary.

The funny part here is that I was suppose to go back to the city that night but didn’t and spent the night again in Moalboal (that is how much fun I had with the people there). I opted to stay for the again thinking that my flight was still at the night of the following day, guess what I read my flight itinerary incorrectly and missed my flight, it was supposedly in the morning! LOL! -well not really that funny when I was there costed me a whole lot more! o_O

As I go back to Cebu city I just hanged out with my friends who are based there, if you are planning to see the city as well HERE are the places that you can visit in the city. It was a really fun trip but unlike me just be sure to ready your flight itineraries correctly! hahaha!

    Thanks Ian dela Pena, for the great inside, I had a great trip. I went to Cebu and visited places like Tumalogfalls, Whale Shark,Moalmoal and Dumanjug. The weather was perfect, nice people, cheap but yet quite delicious food. I had a small problem though…the traffic, always a lot of cars.

    So small tip all travellers, just rent a mobet or motorbike, much much easier (ceburentalmotorbike.com) that is the place where I did it. Much easier to get a round, and gives you more freedom and independance.

    Have a great trip everyone 🙂

      yes i agree with you joseph cohen, trafic is so crazy in cebu, and renting a scooter is the best way to go around. specially if you plan to go south of cebu or north of cebu. i found this website http://zipbike.asia/ it has quite worded for me, it is online booking website for motorbike so you can rent not only in cebu but also other island plawan, bohol, and other destinations
