Bantayan Island Tours

Welcome to Bantayan Island!  A website that will bring you information about Bantayan island, honest reviews.  We’ll tell you where we go and what we liked.  We’ll also tell you what I didn’t like.  I visit Bantayan Island along  Bantayan Islandwith my Filipina assistant.

We both love going to the island, its not crowded with a lot of tourist.  You may have the beach to yourself.  You’ll see more Filipino on the beaches than you will tourist.

Holy Week is the only exception to that.  Bantayan Island is famous for its solemn observance of the crucifixion of Christ.  During this time, prices are generally twice as much and you need to book your room well in advance.  I may get over there for a day trip this year.  I would like to report on what is going on over there.  However, not being a rich tourist or even a poor tourist, I cannot afford a week on Bantayan Island this year.  Maybe next year I’ll be able to participate in one of the biggest celebrations in the Philippines.

Bantayan Island is a fairly small island just off the northern tip of Cebu Province in the eastern central part of the country.  Cebu is part of the Visayas Region of the Philippines.  The main islands of the Visayas are Panay, Negros. Cebu, Bohol, Leyte and Samar.

Day Trip: Bantayan Island

Bantayan Island Quickie Yesterday I woke up to the sound of my air conditioner going off. Its yet another brown out in Bogo City. When Bogo City looses power, all of Northern Cebu Province usually does. I don’t know how widespread the outage was, one time all of the province lost power. I decided it…

Tickety Boo Beach Resort: Bantayan Island

Kids all over the Philippines make sail boats out of whatever materials they have. When we went near the beach at night, we spotted these kids playing with the sail boats the crafted from discarded items. Jessie hopped the retaining wall and grabbed this picture of one of the two boys playing with their sale boats. This may serve them well when they are older, especially if they become fishermen.
