Last April 18 – 19, 2015 we went to Olango Islands together with my friends in the office. We met at the Parkmall Terminal to ride a jeep going to Punta Engaño Pier. Then we took a ferry there going to Olango Island. The fare going to the island is 15 pesos with a 1 peso terminal fee and the travel time is 10-15 minutes. Upon arriving in Sta. Rosa Pier in Olango we were fetched by a van going to the Olango Paradise Island Resort.

Touch down!

As we put down our bags in our Safari-themed room, we ate our lunch. Actually, you can bring your own food, but you have to pay the corkage.

When we finished our lunch, it’s our time to dip in to the beach, but during the afternoon we don’t know that in Olango their beaches gets low tide earlier than our beaches in Cebu so we decided to go to the San Vicente Olango Marine Sanctuary. The fish sanctuary is just beside our resort.

Even if it’s low tide, we still capture those creatures.

As we went back to our resort, we sat down to the bean bags and continue to watch the sunset til staying for our dinner.

We waited until 11pm just to take a dip into the beach yet still the water was still low. So we decided to take a bath and off to sleep because we were also tired that we don’t have yet sleep after work. Good night 🙂

Olango Paradise Island Resort is a secluded and isolated place where most of the people are always used to be in a busy environment. It definitely caters the needs for those seeking for peace and solitude. This is just one of those places I won’t bother returning. It is still worth a visit!
