Basdaku/White Beach - Moalboal, Cebu

The Beautiful Basdaku/White Beach - Moalboal, Cebu

As was mentioned in my other blog, Moalboal is one of the best beach destinations in the province of Cebu and is home to the popular diving spot, the Pescador Island. Basdaku and Panagsama Beach are 2 of the most beautiful beaches of the municipality.
Baskdaku or White Beach

Basdaku beach aka White Beach is situated in Barangay Saavedra in the town of Moalboal in the southwestern part of Cebu. With its white sand beach, clear waters and long shorelines, it's no wonder why this beach is being flocked by tourists, not just during summer but at all seasons. 



Baskdaku or White Beach

Fresh from our Villa Budlot overnight stay in Sitio Budlot in Barangay Bala of the same town, we separated from the group and embarked on a trip around south starting from Basdaku.

PLACES TO STAY:
There are several places that you can stay in Basdaku but if you want to book in advance, try any other websites and if you want, you can either rent or bring your own tents. If you intend to stay there for just an hour or 2 just like we did, you can leave your things on the seashore. This beach reminds me so much of Tingko Beach in Alcoy where you can just enter in, pay a minimal entrance fee and enjoy the beach. If you are a beach lover, you will surely love Basdaku, just like we do.

We had a short stay, so we just leave our things on the seashore while enjoying our time.

MOALBOAL TOWN
If Ronda has Ronda loves you, Mandaue has I am Mandaue, Liloan has Live Love Liloan and Samboan has Siempre Samboan, Moalboal has Dive Moalboal, for obvious reason, the Pescador Island.

After a quick but satisfying swim, the tricycle driver that waited for us dropped us off at Moalboal town proper. As I disembarked from the tricycle, the church ruins winked at me and said "Hi" (lol). Because I am fascinated by old structures and historical sites, I asked my niece and her bf to stay for a while and explore the place for a few minutes. We then had our dinner and rode a mulit-cab to the next town of Badian for an overnight stay in Kawasan Falls
