It was really an escape from the city life to hop to one of the preserved islands in Cebu province, the Sumilon Island, with friends last April 30, 2012.
Hey! Hey! Pardon me with my images, I am no pro photographer, just a noob and a feeling-photographer, actually. LOL! I will just share to you here some of the views in the island. I can’t upload all my photographs and those that were taken by my friend using Deborah (while I was snorkeling). Images, for all we know, eat a lot of spaces and loading time for a blog, so I thought it would be better if I’ll share them one by one and by the events we enjoyed during our Day Tour at Bluewater Sumilon Island.
Here’s some information I grasped from the island resorts’ staff who did the orientation for Day Tour guests.
Bluewater is the only, by far, resort which caters tourists to visit and stay at Sumilon Island. Moreover, Sumilon Island is a 6-year-old island from when the Bluewater started its tourist operation in the island. It is but a small island — a 24-hectare island surrounded with white sands and aquamarine environments.

The island is also known as one of the best diving sites in the Philippines. It has four major diving areas, the Coral Landscape, Garden Eel Plaza, Julie’s Rock and the Nikki’s Wall. But if you are not inclined to diving, you may opt to try snorkeling. The island’s clear waters are ideal for snorkeling.
The Sand Bar. This is one of the popular attraction in Sumilon Island. It is located in the Western side of the island where boats which cater tourists going to the island dock. And accordingly, this Sand Bar changes its location and shapes in time around the island. This is also the best area of the island to go swimming, snorkeling and photographing.

Another tourist spot in the island where one can do a lot of things is the Natural Lagoon. This natural lagoon is fenced with mangroves and also became the natural habitat of a cichlid fish, Tilapia. Here, one can enjoy kayaking and fish feeding.

There are still a lot of fun things to do in Bluewater Sumilon Island. They have infinity pools and spa and massage services. One can go trekking the whole island to search for the Yamashita Cave, go and take photos of the old lighthouse – the Baluarte along the protected trees in the island.
