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.
|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|
|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|
|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!?|
|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!
