My boyfriend and I escaped for the day to a little known beaches of Bantayan Island. Although it is not Boracay, but it does have beautiful powder like sand and nice accommodations. We held walked down the beach at noon and made love by the light of our moonlit dinner.
It was not luxurious but it was definitely romantic for us. We did not have to spend a lot of money, but we were able to have one of the most memorable times of our relationship at Bantayan Islands.
If you are looking for a simple, quiet time without the typical tourist crowd, try Bantayan.
This beach is near one of the towns of Daan Bantayan Island. This town and is known for a Catholic Church there that has a big feast that allows Christians to eat pork during the Holy Week. *Some Christians believe that eating pork during this holy days is prohibited and is a sin base on the Roman Catholic Religion.
From Cebu City, it is 3 hours by buss (2 hrs by private vehicle) plus one hour by boat
To reach the town of Daan Bantayan, you need to go to the North Bus Terminal and ride in either the regular non aircon bus or for a better convenient ride they have a bigger and more comfortable seats in an aircon buses. Buses have sign that says Daan Bantayan. The ride will take 3 hours to reach the port of those cargo boats that take passengers to STA. Fe where the white sand beaches are located.
