With a total of 168 islands and islets in Cebu, the Central Visayas province is blessed with picture-perfect sandbars that are a treasure find for vacationers looking for the perfect summer getaway. This is the first of a series of articles about sandbars located within the province of Cebu.
Late Summer Getaway
Me, my brother, and my cousins decided to embark on a late summer excursion and decided to head to a place that is not so mainstream. One of my personal goals is to visit as many islands in Cebu, Philippines in my lifetime, so I suggested we go to an island destination. And since we were also trying to do a budget trip, we decided against the more popular and more expensive places. We figured that the destinations that are not so frequented by vacationers would be cheap. We also agreed that there was much to explore in Cebu, Philippines. So with personal agenda in mind, I suggested Campolabo islet in Pinamungajan town. Summoning my convincing powers, I got everyone to agree. While the Campolabo sandbar is already being promoted as a tourist destination in Pinamungajan, it was still hard to find information on the internet. This added up to the interest of the group as it has now become somewhat of a mystery. There was also the prospect of being the ones who get to make the destination famous.
