Waterfalls Chasing in Cebu
Day 1: Mantayupan Falls and Batad Batad Falls
The two waterfalls are situated in two different places in Cebu. But both of them are along the south bound route in Cebu. I have to visit at least 10 waterfalls in 5 days in Cebu and this day marked the start of my quest!
How to get there
Mantayupan Falls, Barili, Cebu
How to get there
From Cebu City
Board a flight to Cebu. Arriving in Cebu, go to South Bus Terminal in Cebu. There are different bus companies that you can choose from but Ceres has always been my choice. Board a Ceres bus going to Bato via Barili (there is another one, Oslob via Barili but it is longer in route). Bus leaves every hour (4 am, 5 am, 6 am, 7 am onwards until 5 pm). Travel time to Moalboal is 2.5 - 3 hours or 89 kilometers. Fare is P118 (aircon). Arriving in Moalboal, hire a habal-habal either to White Beach or Batad Batad Falls.
Board a Ceres bus to Bato via Barili. Fare is P47. Travel time is more or less an hour or 28 kilometers.
Upon my arrival at the town of Moalboal, I immediately noticed that there is a Gaisano Mall. I looked for a habal-habal ride but this time I have two spots to visit namley: the White Beach in Saavedra and Batad Batad falls.
After a series of negotiation, we were able to agree on the following:
Along the way, I told the driver that I need a place to stay for the night and I was brought to Panagsama Beach. The accommodations are cheaper and better in Panagsama Beach. I stayed in Susan Seaside.
