Bantayan Island, Sta. Fe Beach Club & Ogtong Cave Resort
« on: January 16, 2010, 06:08:42 PM »

The island can be reached by ferry from Hagnaya Wharf in San Remigio, Cebu, or from Cebu City, or from Cadiz City in Negros Occidental.

Just want to share a very nice video of Bantayan Island, Cebu featuring Ogtong Cave Resort, Sta Fe Beach Club, and Maia's Beach Resort.

been to bantayan island last sept 2009 and we stayed sa Sta fe beach club.

We enjoyed our stay there! kasi that tume, unti lang tao. at kami lang ni boyfie ang lumabas,walang night life.pero sobrang relaxing,

we had a day tour sa ogtong cave,cool. ganda ng place and sobrang tahimik at enjoy ang lahat.

free ride lang, may pick up time :)

But Bantayan Island is different destination, I think it's better to have it's own thread.

Yes it is part of Cebu but malayong part, it is not located at Cebu City.

Para hindi maguluhan yung mga gustong pumunta ng Bantayan Island, para mas mabilis nila malaman pano makapunta and ano mga resorts.

It's like Boracay, it is located at Panay but malayo sa City diba?

yeah, i believe ok na rin to have a separate thread. medyo malayo na talaga ang bantayan than cebu proper, like 4 to 5 hours of travel


we stayed at tristan's resort. di kagandahan kaso no choice kase puno na the rest of sta fe even ogtong. ang namimiss ko yung tristan's special pizza! everyday meal namin yun, di nakakasawa

di rin namin nagawa mag island hopping, katakot kase, lakas ng hangin and alon eh. yun lang, malumot ba talaga dagat dun, kaya madumi shore sa hilera ng tristans gawa ng lumot, tapos they don't clean it. hinahayaan lang.

^baka kasi kahit walisin nila araw2x yon dadalhin pa rin ng alon yong mga dumi sa shore.

pero para sa akin mas maganda bantayan kesa moalboal. kaya gusto kong bumalik don. nakailang uwi na ako sa cebu pero di kayang isingit bantayan kasi medyo malayo din sa haus.;D

^ re lumot, I think seasonal and araw araw sa sta fe they clean it, pero kung maalon talaga, lahat ng shore line eh binibisita ng lumot hehe....

Island hopping naman try also sa Paradise Beach, actually it's not a develop beach parang virgin island na pwede puntahan, doon lang ko nakakita ng malapitan ng malaking blue star fish. I hope makabalik ako doon.

Naka snorkling din kami sa mga chorals, very nice sila pag malapitan.

it's not really dusa if you love nature :) nice yung views and maraming places din kayo madadaanan.

okay lang din if 3 days 2 nights but you have to budget your time, dapat alamin mo agad ang schedule ng boat from hagnaya to sta fe.

what time dating niyo ng cebu dapat maaga, usually ang boat 11:30am, 1:30, forgot the rest na hehe...

yung mga dadaanan, it's nice talaga. di ko lang talaga type yung byahe, medyo matagtag and maalikabok at super init nung nagpunta kami dun, kase nga lunch time ang byahe eh. masakit pa sa butt yung upuan ng bus na nasakyan namin ;p
