Nalusuan Island

Many were astounded by the pristine beauty Cebu has, and that “many” includes me. Aside from its pure white sand beaches and it’s crystal clear and cold waterfalls. You can also explore the beautiful islands here and one of them is Nalusuan Island.

Nalusuan Island is a natural island resort situated between the Province of Bohol and Mactan Island.  There is a sandbar where you can enjoy swimming and play volleyball during low tide. This is also a marine sanctuary so you could expect to see different species of fish on this island. Nalusuan Island also offers a buffet during lunch.

We’ve been here last 2015 for island-hopping adventures. I’ve been there with my girlfriend and some of our friends. We really didn’t expect that we were astonished by the place and requested the boat driver to stay longer on this Island. Snorkeling was the best part that we do on the island, aside from the underwater view that this island can offer you. You can also swim with different species of fish.

that you were with someone sharing the same
