In the northern parts of Cebu in the Central Visayas region, specifically in Bantayan, the number of beaches will make you think which one to go to first. However, there’s this island that will surely catch your attention by the name itself—Cebu Virgin Island.
Virgin Island is a privately-owned island situated close to Sta. Fe, Bantayan. It’s like 30-minute away from the mainland. This spot in the northern part of Cebu flaunts a majestic powdery white sand and turquoise waters. The coconut trees planted on the island provides cool and refreshing air and will let you feel that you are away from the fast-paced and busy metro.
Fun fact, Virgin Island is also known as Sillion Island. According to my research, the term “sillion” means uncountable. Made me think that maybe, they called this place as sillion because of the numerous and different kind of species that lives in the island from the air down to its refreshing waters.
Back to its name Virgin Island. When we hear virgin, there’s one meaning that comes into our mind—untouched. You read it right. Virgin Island is not like the other islands in the Philippines that are highly developed. However, the place reclaims its beauty as this island gives us another meaning of the word “virgin”. Because even though it is untouched and slightly underdeveloped island, it will still provide pure happiness and pure satisfaction to everyone.
Virgin Island’s crystal-clear water offers snorkeling adventure with the marine life that lives underneath. Also, if you are an adventurous person, you could do cliff diving here!
If you also wish to have a rest, there are cottages on the island that will provide you a shed for an affordable rate. The foods are pretty good and will make you feel the island vibe at its cheapest price.
