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.
