Bantayan Island

The Budyong Beach Resort in Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island, Cebu.

Bantayan island, north of Cebu is composed of three towns: Bantayan, which is the biggest, Sta. Fe, where most of the exquisite white beaches can be found and Madredijos. Aside from the beautiful white beaches, Bantayan island is famous for its eggs. More than a million eggs are laid everyday from the several poultry farms that are all over the island. The island comes alive especially during the Holy Week when tourists would swoop down to the island, not really for the religious festivities but for the beach and the various bands and shows that are staged throughout the week. Since the resorts cannot accommodate the many tourists, tents are put up along the beaches. After the Holy Week, the island becomes so peaceful again. The atmosphere is so quiet and leisurely that it is a good peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.
