It is just an illusionary island that emerges only at low tide! We will guide you to a secret spot in Cebu that is not yet known.
It takes about one and a half hours by bunker boat from Mactan Island to the secret island. It is known as bagonbanua Island, a small manmade island or sandbar that appears only during low tide. This islet is not yet known to all that even some of the locals have not heard of this.As you approach the island, the color of the sea turns turquoise, and eventually the beautiful slender moon shaped white sand appears in the sea surface. (※The travel time depends on the flow of the current and the weather. If the tide is too high you may not be able to go down the sandbar.)
This secret island is definitely beautiful and amazing, you will surely have a very valuable experience.
