If you are looking for a relaxing place to spend your weekend getaway, this beautiful eco tourism park in Olango Island is just 15 to 20 minutes away from mainland Mactan Island by boat and should be on your list on your next weekend escapade. This is one of my favorite places to go and things to do in Olango Island. Island Eco Tourism Park is a public park that is situated in Sitio Asinan, Barangay Sabang, Olango Island, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. Sabang is home to one of the best beach destinations in the beautiful island of Olango.

BEACH PARK | PICNIC PARK
This beautiful beach park is seemingly like a lake nestled amid coconut trees and mangrove forest. There is a makeshift boat that is used to cross you over to the other side when it's high tide but when it's low tide, you need not use the boat, you can just walk. The place is blessed with white sand beach and crystal clear waters. I will definitely swim there on my return.

If you don't want to get wet, you can just roam around the place or lay idle underneath the coconut trees, listening to the sound of nature and enjoying the sea breeze.
