4. Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort
It is recommended to visit Bluewater Sumilon Island either on a day trip or overnight to fully experience what southeast of Cebu has to offer.
Bluewater Sumilon Daytrip package (P1,500-weekday, P2,000-weekend per head) includes lunch, boat transfers, use of swimming facilities and island activities like kayaking, trekking and snorkeling.
Here are tips and recommendations if you decide to experience the island...

Kayaking in the natural lagoon is also a very relaxing fun activity.
The main highlight of the trek, is going to the rocketship lighthouse where you can climb and see the view of the entire island.
If you decide to go on overnight, the sunset is best enjoyed in the sunbar area.
Bluewater Sumilon Glamping package starts at P9,500 nett and 3days & 2 nights package starts at P15,000 nett/person. Check out the Bluewater Sumilon website for updated packages.
Tip: You can go on a sunset cruise around the island for P2,000.
5. Oslob to Dumaguete
I would recommend that you exit via Dumaguete which is nearer and more fun than going back via Cebu Airport.
Here are some tips if you decide to go back to Manila via Dumaguete:
You travel to Lilo-an port in Santander, Cebu which is 15 minutes from Oslob. There are two boat options -- riding a pump boat or via the fast craft.
Both are non-airconditioned and their travel time to Dumaguete is the same around 20mins. The boat leaves every hour from 4.00am to 5.00pm.
Tip: It is best to just take the first boat out (either pumpboat or fastcraft) when you arrive in Lilo-an port.
Tip: We would often check in 2 hours before the flight to avoid the check-in traffic and to have a very relaxing foot massage from the Blind masseurs.
