Moalboal is a lively town on the southeastern side of Cebu Island. It makes for a great stopover on your way south to Oslob. The town serves as a great home base from which to explore the numerous beaches, waterfalls, and hikes in the area. We spent an amazing couple of days here but easily could have stayed for a week if we had the time.
Bohol is an eco-warrior’s dream. It has everything from pristine ocean ecosystems, waterfalls, caves, to rolling countryside. The local inhabitants have made a concerted effort to preserve the pristine beauty of their home. Locally managed initiatives include mangrove reforestation, Tarsier habitat conservation, and beach cleanups. Read more on why Bohol is one of the hottest sustainable travel destinations in Southeast Asia.
We spent two days exploring around Moalboal, and brought our GoPro along for the ride. We found some of the most amazing waterfalls in The Philippines… and jumped off just about all of them. Check out the video, and definitely make a stop in Moalboal if you are ever on Cebu.
If you’re looking for a good time, look no further than Boracay. This island lives up to the hype as one of the party hubs of Southeast Asia. Boracay is definitely on the developed side of the spectrum, but development does have benefits. Easy access to great food, nightlife, and tons of activities. We did everything from sailing to cliff jumping, to riding on a fly fish, to partying til sunrise. Boracay is a guaranteed good time.
Boracay is what we would equate to the Cabo San Lucas of Southeast Asia. Beautiful scenery, beautiful weather, beautiful people. Boracay has it all. This is one of the most developed islands we have visited, but development does come with perks. Boracay has a vibrant nightlife and easy access to tons of sweet activities.
