Talima Marine Sanctuary
The famous Talima Marine Sanctuary is one of the gems of Cebu. It is located offshore and away from the population of Cebu, yet you can be diving it within an hour of landing in the Philippines. Talima Marine Sanctuary is a gorgeous dive site and protected area located in the tropical waters off the West coast of Olango Island, between it and Mactan Island.

I’ve always loved waterfalls, Cebu is fortunate to have been bestowed with such. I have been to some of these falls such as Kawasan Falls in Badian and Mantayupan Falls in Barili, even reaching Negros just to see there famous Casaroro Falls. However, one falls stood out from those that I have seen and that is the Tumalog Falls in Oslob, Cebu.
Tumalog Falls or “Mag-ambak Falls” is unique in its own way as it contains a number of umbrella-like stone formations from where water cascades from its the source. You can position yourself under one of its umbrellas and satisfy yourself with the cold water. It’s like a natural shower!!! One thing you can’t easily do in bigger falls.

Oslob Whale Shark Swimming
Watching of whale sharks in Oslob Cebu is 99% guaranteed. Whale sharks can be seen in a small barangay Tan-awan, which is 10 km away from the center town of Oslob. Whale shark watching in Cebu started last September 2011 and it became popular all over the world when the news hit in the internet last November 2011. By December 2011, local fishermen’s interact with the whale sharks by feeding them that result to flocking of tourist to the beach of Tan-awan.

Crocolandia is another must-visit destination in the province of Cebu. The mini-zoo/park, which is the first of its kind in the region, is located in Biasong, Talisay City.
It was founded in 2001, by the Crocolandia Foundation Inc., which is a non-profit, non-stock private organization focused on nature and wildlife conservation.
The park provides a habitat for endangered and endemic animals. It is now home to varieties of mammals, birds and reptiles. A huge majority of its animal population is made up of different species of crocodiles, which obviously accounts for its name. In fact, the park’s most famous resident is a six-meter long saltwater crocodile named after our very own hero, Lapu-Lapu.
