We went to Funtastic Island as it is commonly called. Saw many reviews before hand and was a little leery about what to expect. I must say the reviews slamming this place were way off. The cottages that sit on the rocks are no longer...More

Although far, the place is exquisite. This place also offers adventures for thrill-seeekers. Cliff-Diving is a must-try and its for free.

I loved the boat trip going to Gibitngil (aka Funtastic Island) We passed by this white sand bar where we lazed around for a while. Very cool and chilled.

A small and public resort in the northern part of Cebu. Activities to offer aside from swimming in the very clear water are: kayaking, cliff diving and zipline activity. Reminder: There's no restaurant in the island, so you better bring foods with you.
