BAGONBANWA OR SOUTH BAR , Island Hopping in Bagonbanwa
Enchanting and pristine. Located at the opposite side of Pandanon, going to the South Sandbar will take you a little bit over an hour from Mactan Island. The islands of Cebu are blessed with breath-taking destinations that aren’t explored enough and the South Sandbar is one of them.
Also known as Bangonbanwa by local boatmen and fisherfolk, the South Sandbar is considered a mystery since it rises right in the middle of the ocean during the low tide. Worship the sun along the soft white sand. Take pictures of the different flocks of seabirds. Admire the simplistic beauty of marine life as you dive into the deep blue. After each visit, tourists are left in awe and delight in this small slice of paradise.
A hidden gem among the beautiful islands of Cebu. Each visitor during their visit would feel like having an entire ocean to themselves. During the high tide, the sandbar completely disappears. With the beautiful coral reefs within the area, this also makes Bangonbanwa a good spot for snorkeling with friends. Get your underwater gear and sunblock ready and discover the South Sandbar today!
