Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort in Pinamungajan, Cebu

Over one weekend, I went with my family to Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort and Hidden Valley Mountain Resort in Pinamungajan, Cebu. We got curious about Cebu's first ever wave pool. And so we went on this trip. We went there on a Saturday, February 28, 2015.

We left Cebu City at a few minutes before 8 in the morning and got to the resort a few minutes before 10 o'clock. Since we were among the first few people in the resort, we were lucky enough to be briefed by the resort manager himself on what the resort had to offer. The manager, Ariel Limocon, was the son of the general manager of the Lamac Multi-Purpose Cooperative. LMPC owns and manages the Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort. Ariel is quite an amiable fellow, a soft-spoken 6'4" giant. According to Ariel, the first wave pool resort in Cebu opened just recently last December 18, 2014 and they are already admitting lots of guests. Specially on weekends, guest numbers could swell up to 2,000. However, the resorts facilities are not too friendly for senior citizens and differently-able persons as there are no access ramps.

Islands in Cebu: An Unfinished List of Cebu's 168 Islands

Did you know that the province of Cebu is composed of 168 islands? So far we have identified 98 named islands. Plus 20 unnamed islands. That's a total of 118 islands so far.  We will keep updating this post until we can identify all the 168 islands in Cebu. A very important reference that is used for this list is the 1939 Census Atlas of the Philippines: 7,100 Islands Encoding Project. Our big thanks to Redditor rajeemcariazo for informing us about this resource. The resource actually lists just 166 Cebu islands. Only 54 islands in that list had names.
