View this post on Instagram was too good to be true. The unpredictable weather in monsoon months didnt stop us from taking this trip to the island and we were lucky to have isolated sunshine during our visit. Took a plunge here & we did enjoy the waters. Uninhabited & totally devoid of resorts, you can enjoy pure solitude on this beach surrounded by crystal clear waters & white sand as fine as sugar that will surely take your breath away! 😎🌴🏊🏼💦 📍Location: Bantayan Island, Cebu, Philippines . . . . . #Cebu #Philippines #BantayanIsland #tripbefeatured #TravelStoriesPH #cebtravels #mysmilesnap #the_ph #traversePhilippines #Philippine_islands #fantastic_earth #SeePilipinas #TLPicks #Travelstoked #tasteintravel #discovermnl #TripMagazinePH #travelstribe #darlingescapes #thediscoverer #beachbum #beachy #theglobewanderer #aroundtheworldpix #travelph #comeseeph #itsmorefuninthephilippines #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #sonyphotogallery
