Cebu Trip: Dapdap’s Floating Cottages in Badian

Want to do or go something new in your next visit in southern Cebu? Now you can literally escape from the noise of the city and be “alone” with nature — in the middle of the sea.

Badian is a known go-to tourist destination in the south for beach getaways in Lambug White Beach or canyoneering at the world-famous Kawasan Falls. Adding to this list is an interesting, new attraction that will make you come back for more — the Dapdap’s Floating Cottages in Badian Bay.

There are three (3) floating cottages available — one can accommodate up to 50 persons at a time, the other two can cater up to 30 persons each. The best part is, it’s very affordable – priced at ₱100 per person, inclusive of entrance fee and life vest.
