Island Adventure Getaway in Camotes Island, Cebu




I've spent my weekend last week with Jane in an island getaway. It's one of the items in my Travel Bucket List for this year. One of the top destinations here in Cebu, the Camotes Island. TFN Travel Bucket List item #6, COMPLETED!


Sunday, October 5, Jane and I are somewhere in highway Mandaue around 6:00AM waiting for a cab going to Danao City. We need to get there before 8:30AM so that we can board on the second trip of the Jomalia Shipping off to Camotes Island.

We arrived in Danao port for Camotes Island a few minutes pass eight o'clock. We bought our ticket right away and boarded the ship to depart at 8:30AM. We arrived at Poro port quarter to 11:00AM. More or less, travel time from Danao port to Camotes Island is two hours or more depending on the tempo of the weather.

I've already contacted Manong Alfred the day before our arrival in the island. He offers island destinations tour and pick-up from port to resort and resort to port service. He's going to pick-up us and sends us to the resort where we're going to stay. And we've agreed to have the island tour in the afternoon.

Good thing! Manong Alfred's service is on promo. I've availed the island tour good for two for only 600 pesos, 500 pesos for the fee and 100 pesos for the gasoline. And the pick-up from port to resort and vice versa is FREE of charge. Normally it cost 50 pesos per head so we saved 200 pesos in the trip.

We've decided to stay in Santiago Bay Garden & Resort. It's a pretty nice place and the room rates are affordable. But when we arrive in the resort, there's currently no available room so the resort personnel in the reception told us to have our lunch instead and be back at 2:00PM for the room we reserved at that moment.
