Fifteen minutes off the coast of Bancogon in Oslob rests Bluewater Sumilon Island, a tiny landmass measuring at only twenty-four hectares. To most tourists, the parcel of land is quite renowned for its shifting white sandbar. However, the privately-owned island is more than just the sandbar and to discern more of what it is truly about, I spent the rest of my first day in Oslob on a day tour in Bluewater Sumilon Island.
The island of Cebu is divided in two main regions, North and South. They say that the northern part is for the laid-back wanderer where most of the pristine white sand beaches can be found. And while the southern part of Cebu is for the adventurous and more active traveler, I thought, hey! I also have an adventurous spirit in me and journeying to the south might just let me explore it even more.
