Apart from the beautiful beaches, cultural heritage, vibrant feasts and food scene, Cebu has also grown its attractions for flower gardens. After the viral hit Sirao Flower Farm almost five years ago and Buwakan ni Alejandra just a year ago, a slew of flower farms or gardens sprouted (or at least opened to the public) gradually in the Queen City of the South.
Dalaguete is famous for its beginner-friendly, scenic mountain peaks from the likes of Osmena Peak, Kandungaw Peak and Casino Peak. It also boasts a public white beach and a strawberry farm. No doubt this municipality is tagged as the “Summer Capital of Cebu”. But guess what? There’s a new attraction in Dalaguete you will surely love – the Sunflower Garden or the “I Love Dalaguete Flower Farm” in Mantalongon, Dalaguete.
Aside from sunflowers, this garden also features a variety of flower species.
