A Weekend in Moalboal

A Weekend in Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines

Just a few weeks after my Malapascua trip, I headed off to my next beach destination — Moalboal Island. I was invited by one of my best friends to stay in her house with her beautiful family. It was such a fun weekend. We celebrated her sister’s birthday, went gleaning, and had an endless chat session.

Moalboal (pronounced as mo-ahl-bo-ahl) is just 2-3 hours away by bus or by van from Cebu City. It has two main beach destinations: Panagsama and Bas Daku, both of which offer easy access to Pescador Island, a famous diving spot which is located just a few kilometers off its coast. For scuba divers out there, you shouldn’t miss Pescador.

We opted for Bas Daku as Panagsama beach doesn’t have white sand. Bas Daku has a long coastline with white sand beach and an array of beachfront hotels and hostels. Going to the center of town from Bas Daku is also very easy and takes only a few minutes by tricycle.

If you’re planning for a quick weekend getaway, Moalboal is one great choice!

Enjoy!
