Discovering Oslob in a Day

What's the best way to spend a week-long of no classes and work? If you know me too well, you'll know my answer. Yup, TRAVEL. During the semestral break, two of my high school friends and I went to Central Visayas region to unwind and explore some provinces there.

Similar to my previous travel posts, this was a tri-province trip. We explored Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental, the mystic island of Siquijor and a town in Cebu known for its whale shark watching activity - the town of Oslob. 

For this post, I'm going to share about our Oslob adventure since it was the first place we visited since we got in Dumaguete. 

Getting to Oslob from Dumaguete City

There are many ways on how to get to Oslob but the one I'm going to share here is the most convenient for us. From Dumaguete city proper, go to Sibulan Port. Sibulan Port is accessible via multicab or pedicab (their tricycle). Once you reach Sibulan Port, you have the option if you want to ride via fast craft or pump boat depending on your preference. Travel time is about 15 to 20 minutes via fast craft while travel time via pump boat is more or less 30 minutes.

After minutes of traveling (depends if fast craft or pump boat), you will reach Liloan Port. I was mesmerized when I saw Liloan Port because it was different from other ports I've seen. The pictures below can support what I'm saying. :)




Pedicabs are waiting outside Liloan Port which you can rent to take you to the whale shark watching area, tour you to other spots in Oslob and take you back to the Liloan Port. We paid 400 pesos for the pedicab service and tour.

SWIM WITH THE WHALE SHARKS

Our first activity was whale shark watching since the activity is only available from 8am to 12noon. Swimming with the whale sharks was scary at first but it became exciting and fun as time passes by. A trip to Oslob won't be complete without experiencing this. It's really a must do when in Oslob.

(Sorry for the grainy photos because we were still at our "clueless" phase in using my friend's GoPro. Hahaha)







TAKE A DIP AT TUMALOG FALLS

Before reaching Tumalog falls, you need to ride a habal-habal.

Few minutes of hiking a steep slope on the way to the falls..



Tumalog Falls is certainly one of the most beautiful falls I've seen in my life! It's really majestic!

The Cuartel which is made of coral stones.. If these walls could talk..




SEAFARI RESORT

This was our last stopover before heading back to Liloan Port. We took several steps going down the beach side.


And the beach is within reach already!









So that's a wrap for our day trip to Oslob, Cebu. My next blog post will be about our trip to the mystic and enchanting island of Siquijor. :))) SOON.
