Paradise Beach, Bantayan Island

Located in Central Philippines at the northernmost tip of mainland Cebu, is a tropical island Eden, known as Bantayan Island. A little less than one hundred square miles in size, it's regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the world because of its crystal clear ocean waters and an immaculately clean shoreline of powder-like white sands.

It has one of the oldest churches in the country, built some 400 years ago during the Spanish colonization. As the Lenten season sets in, it becomes the center of religious commemoration of the Passion of Christ, participated in by the local folks and foreign tourists.

The Food

Resorts on the island serve an array of Filipino, Thai, European, Japanese and American dishes. The most popular among this cuisine would be a selection of fresh sea foods sourced straight from the fishermen's catch of the day. Fishing being the main livelihood of the Bantayanons, one would typically see deliciously prepared giant lobsters, prawns, crabs, blue Marlin and salmon on the dining table.
