Stressed? Depressed? Bored? Or just itching for another crazy adventure?
It is that time of the year again, I know. The time to have a break, leave everything behind and experience nature and life that only the ocean can give. Nalusuan Island in Olango Reef, Cordova Mactan, Cebu is both a breather for the soul and perfect for a marine adventure.
The island with its long sand bar is a sanctuary to all the sea creatures and to the nature lovers. You can literally reach at arm’s length the abundance of marine life. The fishes that you have only seen in your plates in their natural habitat. It feels like you are a part of the sea, the island and the life under water.
The adventure starts as soon as you ride the boat to the island, the challenging waves, the strong winds and the taste of the ocean. They offer a lot of fun things like snorkeling, kayaking, parasailing, scuba diving, and so much more!
The cottages are built right above the sea with breathtaking views. Imagine, waking up to the refreshing breeze of the sea while feeding the fish just right below the balcony.
What is a trip to an island without the much craved island food. Some of these are crabs, barbecued squids, and the all-time favorite seafood pansit. Freshly caught from the sea, the fish and other seafood have this sweetness and sea flavor giving your stomach the escape from the processed foods in the city.
For thoe healthy junkies, there are also vegetable salads, vegetable dishes, fruits like mango with bagoong and the kitchen’s pride, the “fried potatoes glazed with sweet syrup”.
Don’t worry meat lovers, they also serve meat like adobo and barbecue and of course fried chicken.
