Fun Island Tours

Danao Lake in Camotes IslandsDanao Lake, Camotes Islands

Camotes Islands is one of the most popular islands of Cebu Province. It does not only offer nice and pristine beaches but also various natural sites. There are caves, a lake, coves, rivers, trees and sea views.

Bukilat Cave

It is located in Tudela, Camotes Island. It is not just a cave with the usual small opening and narrow space inside.

It is a cave with a huge space inside. Not just spacious, but it has its famous cool pool water where you can dip yourself and even swim. The water is crystal clear and very pure.

What makes it more attractive is the opening or an aperture where the sun’s light gets through illuminating the inside and making the clear water sparkle like crystals. It’s not far from BBR (Bano Beach resort)… only about an hour by its private van.

Timubo Cave Resort

It is a small cave in the middle of a cornfield, so it is not quite visible. One interesting thing you can do here is dip in and soak yourself in the cool pool down below. It's great to do swimming inside it especially after your tour and sweaty travel around (which I did and enjoyed very much).

Lake Danao, San Francisco

It is also known as the ‘lovers’ lake’ among locals. It is a 700-hectare fresh water lake, the biggest natural fresh water lake in the province of Cebu.
It is popular among students to have a direct encounter and explore nature outside the four walls of their schools

It is abundant of fresh water fish (tilapia, etc.) that you can fish by taking a boat for rent available around. You can grill your catch too! Yes, the lakeside is available for picnics and other sort of gathering and relaxing activities by families, friends or companies.

Lake Danao is also known for its purple herons, wild ducks, and other water birds that rely on the lake’s fecund resources of fresh water and food for survival. In fact, Lake Danao has been designated by the government as bird sanctuary. Many of the Lake’s flora and fauna are endemic in this province.

Families with their children, couples, friends, and various groups of visitors enjoy the lake’s Green Lake Park or Lake Danao Park.

Buho Rock was a private resort and is presently under the management of Camotes Island's local government.Buho Rock Resort on Camotes Islands

Buho Rock, Poro

What is so special with this rock, you may ask! Nothing magical. It is just an elevated and elongated coral rock at the edge on the island… one of the best places to see the wide ocean and enjoy the sense of freedom and peace that everyone so desire…

This resting and picnic place is a local government-run destination. It is provided with cottages where visitors can enjoy their refreshments and food for a day’s picnic. Some high adrenaline packed visitors would jump or dive into the water during high tide, wow!

It is just less than an hour from BBR.

Poro Church, Poro

For you to be interested to visit this old church structure you should be either a religious person or one interested in history or historical relics.

The Church of Poro is the oldest church in Camotes Islands. It is especially dedicated to the Child Jesus or Santo Nino.

The town itself was founded in 1701 and the church became a parish in 1849. It is one of the churches established by Spanish missionaries that introduced Christianity in Cebu islands in the 18th century.
