If you've ever traveled to Cebu and are familiar with the municipality of Badian, then the first thing you would associate it with is Kawasan Falls. I've been to family trips over there and the go-to place has always been the famous tourist spot. Recently, it has also become known for Canyoneering adventures! My recent trip there though made me discover the hidden treasures of Badian and it is definitely more than just the Kawasan waterfalls!
Where to go:
If you'd like to see more of the local scenery and save on your budget, don't go to the major resorts and instead go to Lambug Beach. Bring a tent so you won't have to pay for accommodation and have more to spend on food and drinks! :)
If you're a fan of the shorelines of Moalboal but don't quite like the saturation of people, you'll surely fall in love with this mini paradise especially because you won't have to share every square inch of beach with way too many strangers. hehe
Feast your eyes on all things lovely, bury your feet in white pepper-like sand, make sand castles, take all the selfies you like, talk to locals and tourists enjoying the beach, sing your heart out to beachside karaoke, meditate and just let go of all stress and be carefree! That is after all, what getaways are for, right? And if you're anything like my hyperactive son Izel, borrow a shovel and shovel all you want until your arms are sore and you sleep the entire bus-ride from Badian to Cebu! haha
