Island Fun

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.

The most famous colorful place in cebu sounds funny but its really true and good thing is that the place is cool you know especially when you already reach the island. It is called famous resort because of the colorful cottages on top of the rock. And for people love to cliff jump this place is good for you too... More

It's unique island where you can't find long shoreline but it has its own characteristic. The Funtastic island is a public own facility, the facilities are quite bad, one bathroom only, no changing room, crowded cottages, etc. One day day tour would be enough. I don't recommend it for large groups coz sometimes there are not enough cottage for you... More

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.

We love to go to Gibitngil Island. The last time we been there was last Sunday (Sep 13. 2015). We left Cebu at 2am and arrived in Medellin at 5:30, where first we wanted to go to the Seahorse Resort. When we entered the Seahorse nobody was there and our first impression was not good - very dirty! My children... More
