I know summer is almost over but it's never too late for a summer getaway. During my last days in Cebu, my mom, my sister and I, together with my sister's friend Irene, we had a chance to explore Olango at its best. First in our itinerary is Talima, the place is still new and they are still improving their amenities and the place itself, going to Talima costs Php100 for the boat ride then entrance fee is Php100. If you want to try out their fun and sports/water activities like zip line, zorb, inflatables and other water sports, it's another fee that you have to pay. Stayed there for a bit then went to Olango Bird Sanctuary. From Talima, we rented a tricycle for Php250 to bring us there to the bird sanctuary wherein we can do bird watching, and take note these are migratory birds of all kinds. When we arrived there, the entrance is Php30 that includes the bird watching and a free use of their binoculars. For foreigners, entrance fee is Php100. We are too early for bird watching because they usually start to migrate around 3pm to 4pm, but we arrived around 12noon. So instead of waiting too long, we just toured around the place, took pictures and left. We then headed to the nearest beach resort which is Blue Bay-U. Cottage is Php50 that is already discounted, but the actual price is Php 150. It's a large cottage actually, a closed cottage. But if you prefer overnight stay, they also have rooms that you can rent, prices ranging from Php1000 to 3000. Not bad. Wasn't able to take pictures of their cottages but it was nice. I tell you it was a white sand beach but the beach is really crowded at that time, so we just decided to go home.

My sister, mom and me. We look like siblings. =)
See how clear the water is?
In my background are the inflatables. This is one of their water sports activities.
Hunting for guys in their trunks, ahemm, I mean hunting for birds.
This is my mom. This is the view of their resort. Usage of their tables are for free.
The bird sanctuary is totally a must visit place. It's a paradise, and the view is simply breathtaking.
