Philippines Cycling To The Island .By island hopping you’ll notice how different the islands are, despite being so close to each other, but one thing they do have in common are the exuberant, fun loving and easygoing Filipinos, and you’ll no doubt sing a song or two with them! along the way!
We meet in Cebu to take advantage of the international airport but the next day we are off to Bohol by boat. We ride directly from the dock to explore this unique island that is home to the big-eyed tarsiers, terraced ride fields and languid rivers. We head to the more remote resort town of Anda and then explore the white sands of Alona Beach on the southern tip of Panglao Island.
Our next destination is Siquijor Island which is known for its mystic healers who live in the highlands. We next make our way back to Cebu with a brief ride on the island of Negros on the way there. We ride up the coast of Cebu before crossing the hilly core to the east coast and transferring to Cebu City.
