Camotes Island – Overdue Travel Post #1
April 28, 2013 § 4 Comments
To make up for lost blogging time, I am doing a bit of backtracking and posting some of the stuffs I meant to write about but didn’t. Starting with the easiest, travel posts.
For the last three years, my friends and I went on vacations during the first week of March. While we did plan the “going to and enjoying the vacation” part, we never intentionally scheduled it to always be on the same dates. On the second trip (2012), we just laughed and thought it was a great coincidence. And then the third trip (which was totally unplanned), I thought it was fate. Lol.
I posted about the first March escapade here and here. I didn’t write about the second one (which is a pity because that was a great trip, maybe i’ll write about it some other time). And this here is about the latest.
We traveled about 27 kilometers north of Cebu City to Danao City (roughly 2 hours), and took an hour boat trip to get to the beautiful Camotes group of islands. We stayed at Santiago Bay Garden and Resort Hotel. The resort is still being developed but the rooms are clean and spacious. The infinity pools are also great. The resort also serves good food that is cheaper than that of other resort hotels in Cebu. I liked that there are other food options available that are even cheaper and not less good. And of course, the thing that we came for, the beach. While it’s not the best, it still has one of the most gorgeous shorelines. All in all, Camotes Island is a good getaway place.
And pictures. I took mine through my phone and the rest were taken by the awesome Aldrich V.
