MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – Planning a summer get away?
Don’t forget to add a visit to the Marine Sanctuary and the Pag-utlan Camp that are both located in Barangay San Vicente in Olango Island to your wish list.
A visit to these two destinations will allow you to enjoy fun under the sun, but at a very minimal cost, said Representative Paz Radaza of the lone district of Lapu-Lapu City.
How to get there? It’s easy.
Take a pump boat ride at the Angasil Port in Barangay Mactan or at the Hilton Wharf in Barangay Punta Engaño.
After 20 minutes sea trip, take a tricycle ride to Sitio Pag-utlan in Barangay San Vicente. Tricycle fare is P25 per person.
For a fee of P30, you will already have access to this beautiful bird sanctuary that is operated by the barangay for sightseeing and picture taking.
The sanctuary is opened from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
But if you intend to try its refreshing waters, swimming will be charged P80 per person while tables and chairs rental is pegged at P200 for a group of 10.
Activities that you can enjoy include snorkelling, fish feeding, paddle boat ride, scuba diving, island hopping and overnight camping.
Radaza said that although privately owned, entrance to the Pag-utlan Camp is only pegged at P10 for day use (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and P100 for an overnight stay (check in at 8 a.m. and checkout at 10 p.m. of the following day).
They also have nipa huts for those who will be staying overnight.
Rates are below:
Small Kubo: Good for 2 (P800)
Medium Kubo: Good for 4 (P1,200)
Family Kubo: Good for 8-10pax (Php 1,500)
