Camotes Islands is one of the most popular islands of Cebu Province. It does not only offer nice and pristine beaches but also various natural sites. There are caves, a lake, coves, rivers, trees and sea views.
It is located in Tudela,
Camotes Island. It is not just a cave with the usual small opening and
narrow space inside.
It is a cave with a huge space inside. Not
just spacious, but it has its famous cool pool water where you can dip
yourself and even swim. The water is crystal clear and very pure.
What makes it more attractive is the opening or an aperture where the sun’s light gets through illuminating the inside and making the clear water sparkle like crystals. It’s not far from BBR (Bano Beach resort)… only about an hour by its private van.
It is a small cave in the middle of a cornfield, so it is not quite visible. One interesting thing you can do here is dip in and soak yourself in the cool pool down below. It's great to do swimming inside it especially after your tour and sweaty travel around (which I did and enjoyed very much).
Lake Danao, San Francisco
is also known as the ‘lovers’ lake’ among locals. It is a 700-hectare
fresh water lake, the biggest natural fresh water lake in the province

In fact, Lake Danao has been designated by the government as bird sanctuary. Many of the Lake’s flora and fauna are endemic in this province.
Families with their children, couples, friends, and various groups of visitors enjoy the lake’s Green Lake Park or Lake Danao Park.
Buho Rock, Poro
What is so special with this rock, you may ask! Nothing magical. It
is just an elevated and elongated coral rock at the edge on the island…
