The Complete Canyoneering Adventure in Badian and Alegria, Cebu!

Yup! You read that right! You can now experience the whole canyoneering tour in both Badian and Alegria with @happyjuanderer.

The canyoneering tour will now kick off in the Alegria river downstream going through Badian and ends in Kawasan falls.

And If you’ve been to south Cebu recently, then you might be aware of the dispute between the town of Alegria and Badian which has split the canyoneering experience into two parts which in turn has confused a lot of tourists.

Anyway, moving forward! The two towns have finally agreed to join forces through their bridging gap (@happyjuanderer), and you can now finally experience the whole canyoneering tour like how it initially started.

LAKAWON: Negros’ Secret Paradise Retreat & TawHai Floating Bar! @LakawonIsland

1

What is the perfect paradise? For me, it’s an island with everything you need within arm’s reach. A place where you don’t have to travel far and sacrifice your comfort. A remote and beautiful destination with all the modern amenities that you’ll ever need.

Say hello to Lakawon Island Resort & Spa (also called Llacaon), a 13-hectare banana-shaped island off the coast of Cadiz in Negros Occidental.

It’s a world-class beach resort famous for its pristine white sand, crystal clear waters, and the famous TawHai–Asia’s largest floating bar.
