Basdaku Beach: A Little Paradise in the South

Whenever we wish to take a break from our everyday lives, we are presented with a lot of options to choose from — top on the list involves the sun, the sand, and the beach.

 A perfect example would be the Basdaku White Beach, nestled in Moalboal in southern Cebu. For only ₱10-20 (depending from where you enter), you can experience Basdaku Beach’s wide shoreline and its crystal clear waters and pure white sand.

A little trivia, the term ‘Basdaku’ is derived from two Cebuano words “bas” and “daku” which means ‘sand’ and ‘big’, respectively. The name literally describes the kilometer-long coastline of the beach.

What are you waiting for? Go and revel in one of Cebu’s finest beaches.
