The name “Sumilon” is derived from a Cebuano word which means “to take refuge.” Powdery-white sand beaches greet visitors when they arrive to Sumilon Island
, around 20 minutes away from Oslob. Since the island is privately owned by Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort
, non-guests can only visit the sandbar on the island.
That doesn’t subtract from the experience, though, since visitors will still be treated to the sandbar’s marvelous form as it changes locations with the seasons. Travel time from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport to Sumilon Island is around four-and-a-half hours.
It is not surprising that Cebu was chosen as one of the best islands in the world; its exquisite white sand beaches, magnificent panoramas, and exquisite service makes Cebu a consistent contender, capable of hanging with the best of them.
