Crystal clear water the sand bar is really awesome. Chartered a boat for 1,500 we got to stay for an hour in the sand bar and an hour snorkeling in the sanctuary area. The only thing missing was the underwater camera. Next time should bring along one. All in all the experience was nice and memorable. Definitely going back there... More

Right so we chartered our own fishing boat from oslob for 1100 including towels. The ride was very scenic and took 45 minutes each way. Upon arrival at the sandbar (as 1500 per person was out of our budget due to the backpacking nature of our trip) we were met by a couple guys with a ticket book asking 50... More

I've so much to share about this island. I couldn't even sum up all the words to describe how beautiful this island is. It's very peaceful and relaxing. There are many activities to do here. And most of all, it is somewhat less exploited. Read more about the island through my blog: http://pen-and-broomstick.blogspot.com/2015/05/sumilon-island-my-little-paradise.html

If you are up to a wholesome private stay in Cebu, this resort is one of the best resorts to stay in southern Cebu.

Been here twice and it never failed my expectations. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. Food is great as well. Lots of activities you can do like kayaking, snorkeling and billiards and many more. Crews are also very polite and great.

Crossing from Tan-awan to Sumilon only takes 30 minutes and I encourage travellers of Oslob to visit the amazing sandbar of Sumilon. It's quiet and not so crowded and it makes a great place for relaxation and snacking. The crystal blue waters are picture perfect in all angles and matched with the beautiful sandbar, it is definitely a must when... More

The island is beautiful and very relaxing, has crystal waters and white, powder-fine sand. We enjoyed our trip to the island as well as the snorkeling, free diving and fish feeding in the fish sanctuary. Oslob, Cebu trip is not complete without a visit on this paradise

Since getting the Day Tour from Sumilon Blue Water is way too expensive at P 2,000 each for us, we decided to get to the famous beautiful Island by boat being offered by whom we thought was a boatman from Brumini Resort, but turned out to be the middle man. SInce getting the boat for ourselves (we are a couple)... More

Hubby and I, together with my brother and his wife, went to Sumilon Island when we visited Oslob for the whale shark watching. We were there only for the whole afternoon and it was not enough. Don't pay for a package tour, though. I heard it's P1500 per person which is totally ridiculous. Just do it yourself, bring some foods,... More
