Sumilon Bluewater Island
Whale Shark Watching
Sumilon is actually privately owned with a resort in place: the Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort. It is not really a place for non-resort guests travelers but the resort owner allows to stay at the sandbar for a minimal fee. And this sandbar happens to be the most remarkable natural feature of the small island.
Sumilon Island Day Tour Gives you Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort Cebu Philippines. It is located on tranquil Sumilon Island in Oslob Cebu. The Island remains as one of Cebu’s best secret island and is found on the southeastern tip Cebu. It is 125 kilometers from Cebu City and you can see from the Sumilon Island the well known Dumaguete City, Negros Occidental. The island has an area of 24 hectares and is surrounded by crystal blue clear waters with varying aquamarine hues. It is the first marine protected area in the Philippines and was made a fish sanctuary in 1974 under the guidance of Silliman University Marine Reserve. Sumilon Island Day Tour will let you dive, snorkel and will find varied marine species and even occasional sightings of black tip sharks. Pristine white sand beaches are situated in different areas in Sumilon.
The island is famous throughout the country and internationally for the exceptional beauty of its dive sites. Sumilon has four major dive sites, which are Garden Eel Plaza, Nikki’s Wall, Coral Landscape and Julie’s Rock. The island’s diving sites are famous for their superb visibility, stunning reefs and abundance of varied tropical marine species that provide an ideal and memorable dive.
A popular attraction in Sumilon Island is its sandbar because of its changing shapes and shifting locations around the island depending on the season. Other places of interest in the island are a natural lagoon teeming with high mangroves and natural caves used by fishermen to seek refuge during storms, and a pristine lake.
On the south portion of the island, a lighthouse rests on a protected tree park and beside it is a “baluarte,” a historical watchtower built as part of a warning system to thwart slavers and marauders in the 19th century.
Besides diving, you can also go bird watching, do beach picnics with the family, fishing, hiking, island tours, paddling and trekking.
