Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort is located on the pristine white sand of Sumilon Island. It is 125 kilometers away from Cebu City and in close proximity to Dumaguete.

Kayaking was also part of our tour package; they have a lagoon surrounded by tall mangroves and that's where I felt like I was in Africa. I was like sailing through the amazon river and there goes my wild imagination again! The water was muddy like in color and you might want to expect a crocodile hiding along those branches. It makes you want to keep going until you see something you don’t want to see. I was like craving for trouble. A Natural Lagoon with high and captivating mangroves. 

It was pretty scary when we got to the end of the lagoon, the mangroves were bigger and more of them lurking around forming like a great green monster. You never know what's waiting for you under those green, muddy-like water splashing as you make your way. Thanks to my cousin who took a picture of us because I was really loving it, I was just having a blast kayaking. A great way to stretched those upper body muscles, felt it tear apart and had myself a good laughed. When we finally stopped and rest around the benches thats when I felt who body sore all over, i just laughed it out again.


  1. Wooahh. That was a great adventure! I tried to kayak in the Philippines, and it is really fun.

    1. Hey Rachel,
