More than just a Quarry in Bantayan Island

Arizona, the Grand Canyon State? No. This is in Bantayan Island.

Gorgeous and enormous rock formations, a giant cross, and a vast epic view, makes every travelers feet go itching. The Quarry has now become one of Bantayan Island’s pride and most Instagrammable places in Cebu.

It got its name mainly because of the rock formations which are a product of mining/extraction of limestone. The Quarry by definition is a place or a large and deep pit, where stones or other materials have been extracted.
