Camotes Island: And There’s Two Of Us…

Way back college, I had a short interlude with the island. We were on an island hopping trip together with my mom’s colleagues and Camotes Island was included. It was too short that I almost forgot how the place looked like. And after 9 years, I’m back! This time, I brought with me fun, new memories with someone very close to me heart. Aw..haha

Camotes is a group of islands in the province of Cebu. Located on the northeastern part of Cebu, it is composed of 3 major islands and an islet. The major islands, namely: Poro Island, Pacijan Island and Ponson Island. The center for commerce is located in the municipality of San Francisco in Pacijan Island.

Horsing at The Ranch: Bato, Toledo City

I call this my third hometown next to the cities of Ormoc and Cebu. I have been to Toledo countless of times since I stepped forth Cebu to pursue my college education. Thanks to my board mates, I usually come here for their city fiesta celebrated every 12th of June but mostly lazy weekends at their house. I have been to Brgy Awihao for some “discoral”(a term used to describe discos in small barrios) and Brgy.Cabitoonan for a dip in their waters.

Toledo is a city located on the western part of Cebu. You can reach it from Cebu City either by bus(60php) at the South Bus Terminal or vehicle for hire (fare:100php) at the Citilink Terminal. We usually opt for the Vhire since most buses passing Toledo is too crowded. Travel time is usually 1 1/2- 2 hrs.

The Ranch Resort, located in Bato, Toledo City is something new to Toledohanons. It was built 2 years ago and has been a perfect summer destination for most locals.

From the city proper, you have to ride a trike to Bato where the resort is located. Fare is 15php.

Sunset at Sayaw Beach

Sayaw Beach as the name suggests, is located in the barrio of Sayaw, just a mere 15 minute drive from the town proper. You’ll know you are in Sayaw once you pass the beautiful white sand shores along meters high cliffs and twisted roads.

The Delumbars(to which we were staying) live just across Sayaw Beach so it was just too easy for us to lurk the waters in Sayaw.

It was near sunset when we went down the beach. It was a Saturday so there were people, mostly locals, who was also there.
