Welcome to Moalboal

However as there are only a few patches of sand, head to nearby White Beach for dreamy days by the sea.

Confusingly, the actual settlement of Moalboal (hard to pronounce – try mo-ahl-bo-ahl) is a humdrum town on the highway, 6km west of the coast. The tourist resort is officially Panagsama Beach. However everyone just calls the area 'Moalboal'.

Moalboal Island Hopping and Kawasan Canyoneering Adventure

You’ll begin by getting picked up at your Cebu, Mandaue, or Lapu-lapu City hotel, then get taken to Moalboal where you’ll get briefed by the activity staff about the adventure you’ll partake in. Once the briefing is over, you’ll begin your island hopping excursion and visit several islands for almost four hours. As soon as the clock strikes 12:00pm, you’ll take a short break from jumping from one island to another and feast on a hearty and scrumptious lunch. After your bellies have been satisfied, you’ll make your way to the Badian Island, where you’ll ride a motorbike and ride through the its primeval forest until you reach its river. Once you arrive at the river, you’ll begin your canyoneering expedition and go trekking, climbing, rappelling, swimming, snorkeling, and jumping from high spots.
