Travel Guide: Camotes Island


For the third time, the travel buff visited Camotes Island! This is a company paid trip, so I would like to say thank you to my ROC family. 🙂

Like most companies, we also have our yearly company outing. We were asked for suggestions. They prefer an overnight stay that would only take an hour or two from the city. The travel buff gave 2 suggestions.

First, Malapascua to Kalanggaman to Kirikiti but they said it’s time consuming since you will have to travel 2-3hrs by van or bus and another 45 minutes to Malapascua. Second suggestion was Camotes. My boss and majority of the employees have never been there, so they agreed to spend our company outing in the enchanting Camotes Island.

Interesting places to visit in Camotes:

  1. Lake Danao

This 700-hectare lake is the biggest natural lake in Cebu. Enjoy a boat ride, horse back riding or just spend your lunch time here. They have tables for rent that would only cost P20.




  2. Buho Rock Resort

Located in Poro Camotes is a ship-like rock formation. If you’re not really into adventure, you will not probably enjoy here because most of the people visit this place for the sake of cliff jumping. You can choose from 10-15 feet or the 40-50ft. high.



40-50ft cliff jumping.

3. Timubo Cave

Inside this cave are huge stalactites and stalagmites. And few meters away from the entrance is a clear cold water where you can go swimming. Enjoy and explore the underground.



You may also include:

  1. Busay Falls
  2. Bukilat Cave
  3. Paraiso Cave
  4. Holy Crystal Cave

Camping is also available.


Where to eat?

During your tour, the best option would be bringing your own food because you’ll never know when and where you’ll get hungry. 🙂 If you like fresh catch sea foods, you can visit their market near baywalk, buy sea foods and ask the locals to prepare it for you.

 How to get there:

If coming from Cebu, ride a jeepney bound north and tell the driver to drop you off at Danao Port. From there,  buy a ticket (P180) bound for Consuelo. Inquire here Jomalia Shipping Lines

And Oh, I almost forgot, don’t miss the tasty crunchy Salvaro..:) Deliciously made from cassava and perfectly topped with coconut syrup.
