Visit Basdako, Moalboal this summer

If you are after white sand beaches and affordable spots in Cebu?  I would recommend Basdaku beach in Moalboal, just perfect for your summer getaway.  Basdaku Beach offers affordable room rates, souvenir shops, boat rentals for diving and snorkeling, and more.  Enjoy the sun's heat while you swim the marvelous beach in Moalboal.

Last April, Supercare Cebu held another of their string of summer outings.  From the mountain views of Hidden Paradise in San Fernando to the white sand beach in Moalboal, I was lucky enough to be invited.  Together with Manilyn and her co-workers, we've made the best out of the experience.

Getting there is easy, you can take a ride either by Bus or V-Hire in Cebu South Bus Terminal located along E-Mall (Elizabeth Mall) in Lion Kilat.  The trip usually takes 2½ - 3 hours.  The bus expense is about 90-120 pesos(for air-conditioned Bus), while the V-Hire costs around 110 pesos.  If you have a private vehicle? Much better.  It would take you around 1½ hours to get there.

Habal-habal ride to Basdaku, Moalboal
When you get to Moalboal via Bus, you still need to ride a Habal-habal (motorbike) that costs 20 pesos.  By the way, entrance fee to Basdaku Beach is only five pesos.  Cheap huh?!  Cottages with out electricity is only for 200 pesos, if you wish to have electricity you just have to add 50 pesos for it.  The cottages also have grills for you to cook onto.

If you plan to rent a room(air-conditioned) for a night, it will cost you 1,400, that is already good for two, with one bed and bath room.

It would be really fun if you try snorkeling and witness the beautiful corals and fishes, and if you do get lucky, I'm sure you'll be able to see the sea turtles around the place.

We've rented a boat for 700 pesos good for 10 people, with inclusion of snorkeling gears and life jackets.

On the travel, I've enjoyed taking different pictures of us and of the views.

Now that summer is about to end, make up your mind and enjoy the remaining days of it.  Have a plan with your friends and have fun to the extreme, but also do it with caution.  It's always better to be safe at all times.  Have a great summer everyone.

    1. Hello, it's located in the South of Cebu... When you're taking a PUBLIC Bus or v-hire, the driver will be kind enough to drop off where you can access the motor ride... The place is actually famous they'll lead you there.. :)

      and you can use you tent, no worries, you just have to pay entrance fee's i think it is around 20pesos NOW... If you want a cottage you can also avail them around 200-300 pesos...

    1. Hi Aprillrose,

      Thank you for dropping a comment, regarding the cottages - no need to make a reserve... Last time I check it was around 300 pesos for cottages.. and regarding the boat, yes it was 700 you can also try going island hopping going to Pescador Island but it's another price.. You can refer to my other post... http://www.dms27.com/2013/04/dive-explore-travel-to-pescador-island.html

      Enjoy your stay.

    1. Iba po yong day use at for the overnight... I think they changed some rules now, dati kasi we've tried spending the night in HK Resrot (the resort shown above) nagtent lang kami dati at isang cottage - now I think they're more strict with their rules... (there are a lot of resorts there that's more affordable actually, you'll find it when you get to the place) but don't worry about the CR's and everything - you can actually negotiate to the local takers there when you get to the place.. :)

    1. Hi,

      thanks for dropping a comment. Some prices may have changed but they are still affordable compared to other resorts. There are different "lines" of cottages you can choose from. Some are ranging around 300+ some are less. Depends on pascocial or pa cowboy style. :)
