For those wanting a relaxed beach experience this summer, you should try Olango Island, Cebu. An island just about 30 minutes away from Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City. Olango offers adventurers an inexpensive vacation different from the crowded beaches of Mactan.
Armed with ready-to-grill meat, drinks and snacks, we ventured to this small island in the summer of 2009. We rented a kayak for just 100 pesos good for the whole day. The unli-kayak allowed us to see and paddle through mangroves and off to deeper waters relying mainly on our instincts to go left, right, forward and against the strong currents.
For those who want to mingle with the fishes and spy on the migratory birds, there are also boats which service island-hopping trips for around 1700 pesos.by
