Moalboal!

It’s funny that I’ve stayed in Cebu for several months now and I still haven’t had the chance to explore most of the neighboring beaches, islands and, at the very least, been to Sinulog! I’ve hung out with several couchsurfers and the irony is these travelers from different countries have been to more places in the Philippines than I have been in my own country!

That’s a sad but true thing for most Filipinos. Traveling is expensive but it doesn’t have to be.

Fortunately, that’s all going to change this 2015 since I intend to go to as many trips in the country as much as possible. After all, what’s the point of living in a beautiful archipelagic country if you don’t get to go around and enjoy it?

I’ve already started scratching off a few marks off the travel bucketlist here in Cebu. Among which is the “VISIT MOALBOAL” title. After all, so many Cebuanos have recommended going to Moalboal since it has lots of beaches and is a few towns closer to Oslob (VISIT OSLOB is also in my To-Do list).

Last Friday, the family decided to go on a beach trip to – guess where? – MOALBOAL! We packed our cars, grabbed hold of our snacks and prepared for a long and winding trip to the South.

Yes, Moalboal is in the Southern part of Cebu island. It’s just a few towns away from the southern tip of the island which has Oslob (well reputed for the whale shark sightings).

Just as the map states, the trip to Moalboal takes about an hour (or two or three) depending on traffic. Mostly though the road to Moalboal is crossed through sleepy towns and small cities so traffic isn’t all that bad. We passed through Naga City which my brother claims is the industrial capital of the whole province. I’ve yet to verify that but I can see that it’s definitely where several major factories (mostly for construction materials) are located.

Further on, we passed through Carcar which is known for their chicharon (a very popular afternoon snack consisting of deep-fried pork skin and fats). Here in Carcar, they claim that their chicharon tastes so good it doesn’t need vinegar to taste. True enough, whenever we buy chicharon in Carcar, they never serve it with vinegar. Their chicharons aren’t very hard and they have that fine crisp (not too dry and not too difficult to chew).

When we finally arrived in Moalboal, we were greeted with the most wonderful views…

Needless to say, I’m definitely going back to Moalboal. There’s so much more to explore! Plus, I need to find this cool canyoning site:

  1. Woww what a nice place! I have always been dream to go to Phillipines one day coz people telling me the beaches and the seas are beautiful ! I follow this one person on instagram and he went to boracay island last year and i have to say the sea is so beautiful and eye-catching. Hope to go there one fine day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Philippines is a beautiful country. It’s true, there are lots of wonderful beaches here because the whole country consists of several islands. Almost each region in the country has a set of wonderful beach sceneries, so it almost always feels like summer here. It would be wonderful if you could come and visit the country. I assure you, it would be one heck of an experience. ๐Ÿ˜€
