Get ready for a day of fun in the sun and sand on this shared island hopping trip to the Olango Group of Islands east of Cebu. This tour is great for nature lovers, as you will get to visit marine sanctuaries that are known for their pristine beaches and rich underwater life.
After an early morning pickup from your accommodation in Mactan, Cebu City, or Mandaue, you will make your way to Mactan Wharf, where you will be transferred to a boat. Wear the provided life vest and enjoy the sea breeze on your way to Hilutungan Island Marine Sanctuary. Hilutungan Island is a protected area located in the town of Cordova, just off the coast of Mactan. It is home to a variety of fishes and an abundance of corals. Once you arrive at the island, feel free to don your mask and snorkel to see these amazing creatures.
Aside from the vibrant marine life down below, you can also enjoy the island’s clean white-sand beaches that give it a tropical paradise vibe, perfect for nature and beach lovers. Jump into the water and swim freely with the fish. You can also just lounge on the sand and feel the waves tickle your feet while you soak up the sun.
After snorkeling and swimming in Hilutungan, you will go to Pandanon Island, a popular tourist destination between Cebu and Bohol. It boasts of a white sandbar that attracts tourists and locals alike. Walk around the island and take some photos of the unfinished Roman-style structures. The small white chapel, in particular, would make a good backdrop. Enjoy the rest of the day before making your way back to mainland Cebu.
