Off the beaten track - Ronda, Cebu

Ronda, Cebu, Philippines

Ronda is another municipality in the province of Cebu which is located in the southwestern part of the island. Ronda is right after the municipality of Dumanjug and before the municipality of Alcantara. 

When I first passed by Ronda Plaza in the 90's during our trip to Kawasan Falls in Badian I said to myself that one day I will be back and set my foot on it. Lo and behold, I finally had the time to not just set my foot on it, me and my family actually had the time to relax and enjoy the scenery, had our little picnic there before going farther to our ultimate destination, Villa Budlot and Taginis Falls in Moalboal, Cebu. Not just picnicking but we actually used the toilet of Ronda Police Station - thanks to the police officers who were so accommodating. You guys delivered your plaza's shoutout, "Ronda loves you" - Ronda indeed loves us, tourists...
Go to South Bus Terminal near E-Mall and ride a bus bound for Moalboal then alight …

Aside from Malapascua Island, Moalboal is one of the top destinations for diving enthusiasts (visit Pescador Island) and home to some of the best beaches in Cebu, Philippines, check out Basdaku and Panagsama. Moalboal is located in the southern part of Cebu. Travel time is 2.5 hours to 3 hours by bus depending on traffic.
OFF THE BEATEN TRACK - VILLA BUDLOT Moalboal is known for its white sand beaches and one of the most popular beach destinations in Cebu. Last February, we embarked on an off the beaten Moalboal itinerary instead, we went to Villa Budlot and Taginis Spring which is situated in the mountainous barangay of Bala. If you want to commune with nature, this is the perfect place for you.
