Cebu: Nalusuan Island

Originally a sandbar, Nalusuan Island was reclaimed to allow the construction of Nalusuan Island Resort.

The weather was particularly cooperative when we set sail. As always, the beach lover in me basked in the simple joy of watching the deep blues of the sea.


The skies and clouds were also quite fetching.


From afar, it was obvious this almost-a-hectare island looked lush and quite inviting.


Here’s how its view deck looked up close.


We actually did not go down on its main island because my friends were just after snorkeling. Two of us also opted to stay on the boat.  Even from there, the view was quite scenic.


Later, I decided to walk around this wooden walkway with colorful swags..


The said walkway was made of coconut planks and I recommend not walking on them barefoot to avoid getting pricked by their tiny bits, which was what happened to me.

Here’s a shot of our boat and boatman who patiently waited for my friends while they’re snorkeling.


Yep, Ms. Flirt is the name of our boat that my friend and colleague rented from Plantation Bay for a few hours.

While walking around the plank, my friends coaxed me into joining them but I declined because even from where I was, I could clearly see a lot of fishes.



If you’re into snorkeling and diving, I really recommend this place because it’s teeming with fishes.  Just make sure to brings lots of bread to feed the fishes with.

A word of caution: They can be quite strict in charging entrance fees because they charged even those who did not go snorkeling on the premise that our boat was docked on the island. They also went as far as charging the one year old infant who was with us. Boo hoo.
