Oslob has now become a tourist destination at South Cebu. And it has well received its visitors with a good number of accommodations for tourists to choose from. Locals, and foreigners flood Oslob for the whale watching activity, cultural tours, and outdoor tourist destinations. You can easily travel from Cebu City to Oslob but it would be great that you stay if you plan to experience everything it has to offer. We researched for cheap Oslob accommodations before our travel dates.
After our Kawasan Canyoneering Adventure, we wanted to trek the famous Osmeña Peak. We extended our stay at Badian, South Cebu, and stayed at Matutinao Beach Resort for the night. We decided to head the next day to Osmeña Peak at Dalaguete, Cebu! It was a tiring, b*tt-numbing ride on the habal-habal for nearly TWO hours! The road that connects Badian and Dalaguete, Cebu is in good condition but when you enter Dalaguete and heads towards Osmeña Peak can be a bit brutal to your behinds. It was also a bad idea to wear slippers but with wet footwear, we had no choice but to pray that the rain clouds would not rain on us. Here is a quick share of the Osmeña Peak experience!

The last stop for Kawasan Canyoneering was the Kawasan Falls. I’ve read, and seen a lot of photos of the waterfalls, and I have to admit that I was doubtful of some photos because it looked totally enhanced. If you’ve seen this waterfalls on photos already but haven’t been there yet or you feel the same way before you saw it for yourself — you’ll totally get what I mean. Why is the water basin Crayola Battery Charge Blue colour?! Uhm, yes, Crayola have cool colour names.
After our energy draining but awesome South Cebu canyoneering experience, we decided to extend our stay at Matutinao Beach Resort and moved the Osmeña Peak visit early the next day. We were told it was going to be a long travel to Dalaguete from Badian, and the only option to take was habal-habal. With heavy backpacks on, and loaded on one of the local transport motorcycle for hire which Filipinos call Habal-Habal, we readied ourselves for a b*tt-numbing ride of who knows how long.
We met up with Marky at Moalboal, Cebu town proper. He would be joining our Kawasan Canyoneering at Badian, Cebu. We looked for a place to eat, and all agreed the place to find that is within near vicinity of the university by the highway. After our quick, and cheap lunch infront of the university, we walked towards the bus stop infront of Gaisano Moalboal and waited for a Ceres Bus with a Bato via Barili route.
If not for people we meet, and for people who loves travelling as much as we do, we end up limiting ourselves to what interests us, and what already ready information available during travel planning. Lambug Beach at Badian Cebu was not in our itinerary — really glad to have met Backpacking with a Book who highly recommended this one!
Moalboal, South Cebu is one of the diving destinations in Cebu. Locals, and foreign tourists alike flood to this seaside town for some beach time, and other sea activities. must say that it can be a bit difficult to find cheap accommodation around. But if you’re lucky you can score backpacker rate places to stay. But if leisure, and relaxation is up your alley and you have a extra to spare on resorts you might want to check out the cheap to high end accommodation on the list below.
After our quick lunch and trying out Cebu’s Lechon at Carcar City, we headed to Moalboal. Moalboal is a coastal town in south Cebu best known for its diving spots. Much as we wanted to try diving, and just any other explorations Moalboal had to offer, we went there for some relaxation. Continue reading SOUTH CEBU | Finding White Beach at Moalboal
Our original itinerary would’ve drained our energy. Every local travel blogger we met agreed that it was a suicide mission. So cancelled Bantayan Island, and decided to go to Moalboal instead — but first, trying out Cebu’s Lechon at Carcar City. We headed to the South Bus Terminal to take a bus from Cebu City to South Cebu, and made sure it was around lunch time that we pass by Carcar City for lunch. We wanted to taste the infamous and highly recommended Cebu Lechon.
One of the travel, and adventure highlight at South Cebu is the Kawasan Canyoneering. Here is a detailed guide on what you need to know and prepare for. South Cebu not only has beautiful beaches, great diving sites, and numerous waterfalls to get lost at, it also now boasts as one of the must-go-to spot for downstream canyoneering in the Philippines.
