Summer is never over here in the Philippines; it is hot all year round! Good thing for us, from the Queen City of the South, the beach is always available to refresh us anytime.

The northern part of Cebu is undeniably rich in naturally breath-taking beaches. Beautiful is an understatement. Bantayan Island has always been the most in-demand item on our itinerary and we all know why!

If you are sick of the usual but you can’t get that sunkissed glow from Bantayan out of your mind, here is one more good reason to go back this month!

If you think you know everything about the island, do you, really? If you have never heard about this resort, then you probably don’t!

Bantayan never fails to boast of its calm waters and sleepy skies during sunset and it is always a pretty sight. The hues of blue, orange, pink, yellow and a bit of purple have never looked so gorgeous when blended altogether. This– with matching tall palm trees and white sand will make every hour at this vacation hub, worth remembering.

The island life is therapeutic. Simple living is the key. No hassle, no internet connection, no signal– far from what we are accustomed to on a daily basis. You need a break. This place, though, could be the perfect getaway for you and your beautiful soul. So file that leave before it gets too busy up in the north!

The resort is newly constructed. The exteriors and interiors are all looking great– perfect for your social media aesthetic! They also have huts facing the beach so you get to spend more time looking at this beautiful view from sunrise to sunset.

The resort is not just great for a honeymoon, it is also perfect for family outings, teambuilding activities, soul-searching or solo staycation trips.
