Unassuming Barili

I have passed by this town several times during my trips to the south, I also had the chance to visit the place shortly way back 2011. It was just recently that I had the chance to stumble upon the town’s share of tourist attractions coupled with the perks of simple living.

GETTING THERE:

We boarded the CERES bus at the Cebu North Bus Terminal for Bato (fare: 78php). Buses and Vans for Hire going to neighboring towns like Dumanjug, Moalboal or Badian pass through Barili. Just make sure the name Barili is written on the sign board.

Travel time from Cebu City to Barili is 2 hours.

ACCOMMODATION:

Our accommodation was free. Yay. Thanks to the Delumbars who allowed us to stay in their humble home.

The best part in visiting small towns is the free flow of local and fresh food.

PLACES TO VISIT:

SAYAW BEACH:

Not until during my recent visit there I discovered that Barili also has its share of white sand beaches. Lucky for us, the house where we stayed is just across the famed Sayaw Beach.

My recent visit to Barili has relived memories and for a brief moment, I found myself in the middle of euphoria and melancholy.  I may not have the best retrospects during my first visit here but I’m glad that I came here again, for those bitter memories have been replaced with fun and pleasant ones.
