Bantayan Island is famous as the Lenten Capital of Visayas, located at the northern part of Cebu. The island is composed of three municipalities, Sta Fe, Bantayan and Medridejos. Bantayan got its nane from the words “Bantayan sa Hari”. Basically, the island was once used as lookout area for any invading Moros during the Spanish area. The island was equipped with watchtowers named a “Bantayan sa Hari” which was later shortened into “Bantayan”.
A famous tourist destination because of its white sand beaches and clear waters, the variety of activity within the area is astounding. Numerous beach resorts are conveniently located along the coast with restaurant offering a variety of dishes ranging from local to foreign. The island is responsible for producing more than 100 tons of eggs per day, earning it the name “Egg Basket of Visayas”. Just imagine the activities during Easter season! During the Holy Week, different people from different parts of the globe flock to watch processions concerning the life of Jesus Christ. However, access to the island is not just ideal during the Lenten season as the incredible waters and comfortable accommodations are available year round. Unlike other sites, Bantayan Island is not yet commercialized and still retains the natural and beautiful beauties originally bestowed upon the area. For people who are aiming for peace and serenity in a virtual paradise, this might be the best place to visit.
Caving is also another popular activity in the island. If you’re getting tired of just laying around by the shores, you might want to grab a few gears and explore the different caves scattered around the area. For a little more exploration, try visiting the religious artifacts in the island starting with the Convento dela Asuncion de Nuestra Señora which was founded around the year 1850.
