Have Fun in Gibitngil's FUNtastic Island

Joan Explores @naojakylApril 2019 Β· 2 min read

Rock formations, cliff diving, clear water are the main attractions of this hidden getaway in the Northern part of Cebu, Philippines.


From the Cebu City north bus terminal, you have to take a bus or a van going to Barangay Kawit, Medellin. It will take you about 3 to 4 hours to reach the barangay. From Barangay Kawit, you need to take a boat ride going to Gibitngil Island. This will take you about 30 minutes.

Yes, the more or less 4-hour trip is exhausting but you will be invigorated when you reach the island. The moment you'll see the island, you will have a different sense of energy. The colorful cottages on the rocks are inviting, all the more when you get sight of the water. You will surely be captivated! Just a caveat though, the water is deep, if you are not a good swimmer, get a life vest or a lifebuoy.



The rock formations added beauty to the island. They reminded me of Palawan island in Luzon.



What makes your stay in Funtastic island more fun are the activities in store for the tourists such as cliff diving, kayaking, and zip lining. If you are the adventurous one, then you should not miss trying these activities.


I have yet to master swimming and get more courage to swim in the deep. So, I did not dare try the cliff diving, maybe next time! ;)

I never thought there's a wonder like this in Cebu. Another beauty ticked off from my bucket list!

What a nice place to enjoy the day @naojakyl, your photos are amazing. I can feel the fresh and salty air from afar .. lovely!

Found your post through @simplymike entry post in the pay it forward contest this week. Greetings from Indonesia


@juxtapozed Thank you! Indeed, freshness and saltiness combined. These what make the adventure more fun and relaxing! ;)


Your photos are always so awesome, @naojakyl.
I'm glad to see you're still hanging on. I know it is not easy being new here on SteemIt, but if you keep up what you're doing now, you'll be a veteran user soon ;0)

A small tip: The price of Steem is now about $0.42, the price of Steem Dollar a little more than $1 - which means this is a good time to exchange your Steem Dollars into Steem , so you can power up.

To do so, you need to log into your wallet and click the little arrow next to the amount of Steem Dollars you have. In the dropdown menu, select 'Market'. There you can sell your SBD and get Steem in exchange.
(If you need a more detailed explanation, just let me know and I'll show you)

Keep up the good work!

Sorry I'm a bit late getting around, but some weeks are like that! I found your lovely post thanks to @simplymike who featured you in the Pay it Forward Curation contest. Keep up the great work!
