Bantayan Island... Totally Unexpected

Bantayan surprised me with its beatiful skies and clear blue waters. My stay in Bantayan was like taking a deep breath after having a really really long year. Going there was a lot of work but it was definitely worth the effort.


Bantayan Island... Totally Unexpected

The best thing to do there is Island Hopping and lazing around the beach basking in the sun. Its very relaxing to just lie on the sand and listen to the waves crashing on the shore. Pure bliss.${QuickSuggestions} Nightlife is virtually non-existent there except for the odd all-night karaoke pub/bar, where the serious drinkers hang out... slurring through drunken versions of 'My Way' and 'It's My Life'. Bantayan Island is very laid-back and relaxed. So there are very few options to eat out. You can choose to eat at the resort, at the 2 restaurants close to the resorts, or at the above-mentioned pub/bars which serve some local food. Just be prepared to wait quite a while for your meal to be served since most places do not have the kitchen/labor capacity to cater to a full house. So when it comes to dining, plan ahead. Ask early, specially if you are a group of 6 or more. A good time would be about 6PM so that they can have the food ready by 8PM.${BestWay} Nightlife is virtually non-existent there except for the odd all-night karaoke pub/bar, where the serious drinkers hang out... slurring through drunken versions of 'My Way' and 'It's My Life'.
