Skydive and Watch the White Beach from the Sky (Bantayan, Cebu): Photo of the Day

The beaches of the Philippines are among the best in the world. As we’ve noted before, Philippine beaches come in different colors (with same clear waters, though), but it seems the most popular among tourists, both local and foreigners, are the white-sand beaches of these islands. Now, in addition to enjoying the beaches on the ground, what if we tell you that you can watch these white-sand beaches while dropping from the sky? Yes, skydiving has grown popular in Sta. Fe, Bantayan, Cebu, with Skydive Cebu Adventures providing the services. It looks awesome, as we see in this cool photo from Naël Henri Prélaz. There’s no doubt the parachute jump involves a lot of adrenaline rush (and screaming for newbies, who will be paired and inseparably strapped with an experienced skydiver, called a tandem dive), but we’re not doing it. Nope, not for us. It will be a waste of money because we’ll most likely pass out or, worse, have a heart attack. We wouldn’t back out from this extreme sport if were younger (well, maybe yes), but we know a lot of adrenaline junkies will happily jump off from a plane at 10,000 above Bantayan Island. You game to see some islands (uhm, while falling from the sky)? Click the photo to enlarge. Continue reading Skydive and Watch the White Beach from the Sky (Bantayan, Cebu): Photo of the Day

The Flying Banca of Virgin Island, Cebu: Photo of the Day

There’s something strange happening in the Virgin Island, known as Sillion Island among the locals, located in the northern part of Cebu province and sandwiched between the islands of Bantayan and Daanbantayan. Boats or bancas in the Virgin Island appear to be flying on top of the white-sand beach. If you look closer, however, you’ll notice that the waters around island are simply crystal clear, giving the fun illusion that boats are flying. As noted by The Island Boy in the caption of his photo featured here, “yes, that’s a floating boat” (check his Instagram acount, @theislandboyy, for more awesome photos). Click the photo to enlarge.

Photo of the Day: Board Games

An island girl, @wheresjoanne refers to herself, and, with the idyllic life along the fine-sand beach and clear waters of Beach Placid, Bantayan Island, Cebu, it’s not surprising to discover in this photo that @wheresjoanne‘s significant other is a cool skimboard. Romantic. Truly romatic. Envious with the skimboard, dudes? Want to take the place of that colorful skimboard? Easy — you guys have to be as cool as a beach bum, most probably. And, while you’re at it, don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful islands of the Philippines! Click the photo to enlarge: Continue reading Photo of the Day: Board Games

Your Bet on the Best Philippine Beach

There’s no doubt that the Philippines has some of its beaches in the best beaches of the world. There’s also no doubt that Boracay is in that list, although many beaches have given Boracay a run for its money (definitely Palawan, Camiguin, Panglao, Zambales, and other places we’re sure you’ll tell us). So since it’s summer, you’ll most likely head out for some sand and sea. We’d like to know which beach is your best bet. Continue reading Your Bet on the Best Philippine Beach
