Frequently asked questions

What is Oslob known for?

Oslob is a well-known municipality in Cebu, one of the best islands to visit in the Philippines. It is known for its beautiful beaches, sandbars, waterfalls, and the Oslob whale shark watching activity. There are also luxurious resorts located in Oslob.

What are the top attractions in Oslob?

One of the main highlights of Oslob is the opportunity to see whale sharks, where visitors can watch these gentle giants up close in their natural habitat. Aside from whale shark watching, you can visit Tumalog Falls, located just a few minutes away from the whale shark watching site. It offers stunning cascading water and a crystal clear pool, making it a perfect spot for swimming and relaxing.

Other Oslob tourist spots are also included in most Cebu tours. Sumilon Island, with its crystal clear waters and beautiful white sand beach, is a perfect example. Other activities, such as scuba diving, island hopping, and exploring local villages and markets, are also available.

When is the best time to go to Oslob?

Oslob, one of the top tourist spots in Visayas, is ideal to visit all year round. It is highly recommended to go on an Oslob day tour during the dry and summer seasons, particularly from March to June, because there are fewer chances of rainfall.

You can also visit during Cebu whale shark season. The whale shark season in Cebu, including the town of Oslob, runs throughout the year, but the best time to see these gentle giants is usually from November to May. During this period, the sea is typically calmer, and the visibility is better, which makes it easier to spot and swim with the whale sharks. However, it's worth noting that whale sharks are wild animals, and their presence cannot be guaranteed. For more information on this activity, check out our where to swim with whale sharks guide.
