    Nice snorkeling spot for corals especially, some people wrote it's not perfect after thypoon may be it's a really better before but at overall it took 1 hour snorkeling around there and we saw lots of corals and fish, it was enough and enjoyable spot for us and our tour brought us to sardines and turtles to Moalboal, we swam 1 hour also there. Tour spots are fare I think, I would recommend 👌

    Excellent beach with Turtles and Sardines close to shore.
    My 3 teen children and one 5 year-old, loved the water.

    The drop-off is only about 25 meters from the shore line, full of sea life including sardines en masse, as well as turtles close to shore.

    It's almost like being in the movie "Finding Nemo", that included the "Dory fish".

    No meed to charter a boat, simply jump in the water with your goggles. Was excellent.

    A gorgeous bounty beach. Nice for a swim and to work on your tan, some guys selling coconuts (warm🙊) Follow Sea turtle house on google maps (not white beach, then you get to a private beach)

    Over 3 hours private car ride from Cebu City, that includes road works along the way. Have to pay an entrance of 10 pesos per adult at HK resort - that excludes the cottage/shelter use. White sandy sea shore. Had to wear crocs when in the water, was rocky. Prepare an old 5 peso coin for when you use the toilet/shower - it costs 5 pesos per small bucket of water.

    Planet Action (at Tipolo resort) offers the most challenging canyning trip on Cebu. It even is not able to do it when there is too much water in the canyon. You have to hike for 2 hours to the top of the falls. Then you start to abseil through the falls. And you have to jump several times several meters into the water below the fall. It is a narrow high canyon and there should be sun when you do it.
    There are numerous falls and jumps to do during your way down the canyon. At the end there is even a 10m jump to do (you can avoid it, if you are not brave).

    Planet Action offers also a meal after the trip through the falls.
    It is not cheap, but it is worth the money. You should have good shoes, because of the long slippery hike to the top of the falls.
    Planet Action is the oldest company offering canyoning in Moalboal. All others did copy what they did explore first. The Tyson Falls is only offered by Planet Action.

    You can spot the location by all of the old bottles on the fence etc outside the museum. Friendly owner and close walk from the water.

    They are growing and adding options to the area. This place opens at 8 and closes at 8 so if you arrive late you have fewer options. It's a smaller place so some offerings tou see at other places are not available or not operating.

    i was expecting too much but when we arrived it was not a peak season for orchids. Got a little disappointed though but the green plants were so pleasing with the eyes.

  • We had a three night stay at "Moalboal Turtle Haven 1 @ La Concepcion Cove" hosted by Lorelie (along with Vladislav) at Moalboal on the island of Cebu, Philippines. We flew into Mactan–Cebu International Airport (CEB) and took a 3.5 hour taxi ride to Moalboal to witness the majestic waters, have a chance to swim alongside sea turtles, and take tours to nearby waterfalls, all while eating, drinking, and getting a massage in a vibrant small town. As Airbnb Superhosts ourselves, we want to share our feedback to ensure that future Airbnb guests will have a more comfortable stay. First and foremost, the hospitality by Lorelie (along with Vladislav) was impeccable from the arrival with mango juice, to providing a welcome booklet, to setting up tours or massage appointments, to preparing a generous breakfast (for a small fee), to allowing us to rent gear to properly snorkel or swim, and most importantly, to calling trusted drivers to pick you up to and from La Conception Cove. Second, the shoe-free, and clean, bedroom and private bathroom for our room is located upstairs on a steep stairway adjacent to other rooms sharing a common area with a fridge, filtered water, couch, and a balcony seating area overlooking the beach. Within the bedroom, there's an effective air conditioner, a flat sheet to place on top of the mattress protector, a flat sheet to cover ourselves during our sleep, body towels for the shower, toilet paper, and some furniture to organize and settle your items. Third, the bathroom is extremely cozy with the doorway, toilet, shower head, and sink being no more than 2 feet from each other. It is important to note that there's no hot water and it is best that you bring or purchase your own toiletries. Fourth, the internet was very helpful to communicate to Lorelie (along with Vladislav) when we had any issues, wanted to put an order for next day's breakfast, or request for a ride. Please note that the internet isn't the fastest and can drop from time to time depending on the weather and usage from other guests. Lastly, despite being 10 minute car ride from the center town of Moalboal, nothing will beat being steps away from a gorgeous, nearly empty beach adjacent to the shallow waters to swim or snorkel. If you're lucky enough, you can catch a glimpse of sea turtles and other fishes! Overall, if you want to stay at a relaxing and quiet place next to a beach with excellent hospitality while overcoming the cozy bathroom, I would recommend their place!

    Cool place to stay if you want be closed by nature, good place to stay with friends and play archery, bit far from town for party but overall it was okay since we have motorbikes. People here are very friendly and helpful with questions.

    Very relaxing, been here twice already and it's always excellent, the masseur was very professional and the price was not expensive. I recommend this place to go when you want to relax.
