    Please go. Just go. This is absolutely stunning! Blue clear water, not many people and a lot of peace. So beautiful. Just go!

    The façade of the church looks just like any old church but upon venturing inside you will be treated with beautiful paintings on the ceiling. Almost wasn't able to view as we went here past 7pm from Kota Park viewing the sunset. The front door was already closed but luckily it was accessible by the side gate. Renovations or cleaning were being done while we visited. A must see when visiting Bantayan Island

    One of the must visit places when you're in Bantayan. There are tables and cabanas for rent where you can rest and dine. There are stores where you can buy food and drinks. You can also bring your own food and they have a grill area as well. Clear waters and there are areas where you can snorkel. You can also do cliff diving as well

    We went there very early in the morning during low tide. Advantage of that would be having almost uninterrupted photo taking session. But I think it would be best to visit during high tide as the view would be much better. Entrance fee is at P55. Our guide advised it is a 1km walk over sturdy bamboo docks. Popularized by the movie Camp Sawi. Great for people who love nature. You can also feed fish along the way. The view overlooking the ocean near the Camp Wagi sign just looks amazing.

    Visited La-aw Lagoon on a near perfect day. We had a local guide. Well worth the visit. Be prepared for a steep climb in a ravine. There are some bamboo railings but generally the climb down is not for young kids and the elderly or overweight. Well worth the effort

    When planning your itinerary for Bantayan Island, this destination absolutely deserves a spot in your top three must-visit places. Upon arriving, you'll notice that besides the boat fee, there are two options for accessing this gem: one is free, while the other requires a fee. For a fee of 200 pesos per person, you gain entrance to a resort that offers an array of amenities. If you opt to indulge in the pool, there's an additional charge of 150 pesos on top of the entrance fee. Feeling peckish? Head over to Leon's Food Hub, where you'll find delectable dishes at very affordable prices. And don't miss out on their mango shake—it's simply divine and will leave a lasting impression on your taste buds.

    The allure of this place lies in its pristine waters and sands, surrounded by swaying coconut trees that create a picturesque scene. The cleanliness and natural beauty of the lagoons here took me by surprise—I never imagined they could be so breathtaking. My only regret? Not extending my stay to fully immerse myself in this paradise for a little while longer.

    Went here for the sunset view as recommended by our guide. The walk seemed worn-out and dilapidated. I was advised there has been a lot of holes on it already and are covered with plywood. They seem to be building a new bay walk made of steel.

    Long drive from Sta. Fe. Recommended by our guide as the best place to view the sunset. They gave out free fan to every tourist. Free to enter. There are food stalls near the entrance. They seem to be building a new bay walk as the old one seems worn-out and dilapidated. More locals than tourist can be spotted here. Most are actually teens or school children.

    Did not visit the actual Island but this is where most of the Island Hopping tour in Bantayan would stop for snorkeling activities.
