There are many ways to find a place and so it is to reach Tabuelan Municipality and its famed white beaches.

One of the ways is to take a bus from Cebu via Transcentral Highway and enjoy the scenic views along the road. You should pass by Balamaban, Asturias, and Tuburan right before you reach Tabuelan.

The second route is via Cebu’s main roads leading to Mandaue City for Sogod direction. As you reach Lugo Town, turn to your left at Lugo Church and you will be on your way to Tabuelan.
