I know, you also want to escape from the busy metro. Like me, you also want to soak your body to the cool and refreshing water of the beach. If not, you also like to see thousands of marine species underneath.

The Queen City of the South is not just rich in history, but is also rich when it comes to pristine beaches and white sand islands. Cebu is not just an ordinary place. Because for me, Cebu has a lot to offer both to tourists and its locals—may it be in man-made resources or in natural resources.

Lies in the southern part of Cebu is an island that is rich in marine life and attracts thousands of tourists and recreational divers. This island is very rich in marine life with over 2, 500 species of fish, and many of these can only be found only here in the pride of Moalboal—the Pescador Island.

The Pescador Island is located specifically in the Tañon Strait, just a few kilometers from the western coast of the province of Cebu. The name of the island derives from the Spanish term “Pescador” which means “Fishermen”. The waters in the island is very abundant with fishes and other marine life living on the surrounding coral reef that attracts many fishermen.

While you’re still riding on the boat going to this magnificent island, a group of dolphins will join you in going to the island. But these dolphins are just a teaser of what you will see under the crystal-clear water of Pescador Island.

Fine white sand is given, the fact that the most of the beaches and islands here in Cebu has its feature. However, when you plunge into the water and do the snorkelling, you’ll get to see thousands of species of marine life and colorful corals which serves as the natural habitats of the fishes living in the area.

You can also do free diving here at Pescador Island and swim along with the famous sardine run. For sure, as you see these group of fishes swimming altogether, you’ll be amazed of how this marine sanctuary was preserved by the Cebuanos.

Given the fact that Cebu Pescador Island is a marine sanctuary, scuba diving in this area is the top activity. You also get the chance to see the rare green sea turtle swimming around the colorful are of Pescador Island, but it only depends on the weather condition.
