Found in the west of Cebu, Bantayan Island is a breathtaking coastal paradise in the Visayan region of the Philippines. Compared to world-renowned summer destinations in the Pearl of the Orient, such as Boracay, El Nido, and Siargao, Bantayan Island is less popular and less trafficked - but that doesn’t mean it’s less enchanting. The lack of ultramodern establishments on the island makes it a fantastic destination to really reconnect with nature and forget about the contemporary world. Bantayan Island boasts beaches with powdery white sands and turquoise-blue waters. Here, you’ll find Sandira Beach, Sillon Island, Hilantagaan Island, and the idyllic Omagieca Obo-ob Mangrove Garden, which was featured in a recent Filipino film. To help you with your accommodation needs, browse through this list of the top Airbnb vacation rentals on Bantayan Island, the Philippines.
