biking in olango island

olango island 


tl sky invited me to tag along when she planned to go biking around olango island. of course i said yaaaaaaassssss! 🙂 tl sky, besh jinner (she is from olango and our host/guide) and i left mandaue at 5am; took a multicab bound for tamiya, got off in menzi then rode another multicab bound for eskina angasil. we then took a tricycle to the pier 🙂 

we saw this amazing sunrise when we were about to board the pumpboat going to olango island 🙂 

the sky was literally on fire 🙂

the second picture was when we were about to disembark from the boat. another beautiful sunrise shot 😀 

tl sky and i were both first-timers on the island and we were so happy to finally be there 🙂 

low tide! 🙂 

besh jinner’s mama prepared these: saging and pan bisaya: 

we rented bicycles right after breakfast. we went to sitio candagsao – the owner’s house that rents the bikes is at the back of candagsao elementary school. 

the rent is 10.00/hour. yes, it’s legit 🙂 

and then it was time to go biking! 🙂 

we went to one end of the island and took a lot of pictures: 

then we biked going to our destination, which is at the opposite end of olango: 

the boardwalk: 

our food: 

fresh sea urchin, sold at 10.00 each. i ate 1 – my friend joyjoy said this was locally called tihi-tihi 😀 

the view from the cottage of the marine sanctuary:

swimming with the fishes 🙂 

and the ultimate summer splash 😉

my kind of jump shot! 😀 

took a break from swimming to pose and take everything in 🙂 

then it was time to go home 😀

although we were already very tired, we had no choice but to still use the bikes in going to the other side of the island to return our rented bicycles 🙂 

we had to stop by this spot because the scenery was just too beautiful 🙂 

ah, the island life 🙂 

we had freshly-picked buko when we arrived in besh jinner’s house – thank you, kuya! 🙂 

high tide! 🙂 

then, it was time to go back to the big island and the city 🙂 last boat trip from olango is at 6pm 🙂 

until next time, olango – i will surely be back 😀

8.00 mandaue to menzi

10.00 menzi to eskina angasil

8.00 eskina angasil to baybayon para sa pumpboat

optional expenses: 

10.00 pantalan sa olango to bunga (vice-versa) – but we opted to walk from the pantalan, passed by the church and said a little prayer for us to be safe 😀 and going to pantalan from bunga, gihatod mi sa kuya ni besh jinner 🙂

hanggang sa muli, olango 😉
