Moalboal Sunday: A Day at Bas Daku

Moalboal is a town situated 59 kilometers away from Cebu City. Moalboal boasts of world-famous dive sites and resorts. To get to Moalboal from Cebu City, one can take the VHIRE (Van for Hire,) the bus, or a mini bus.

When you reach Moalboal proper, you can either go to Bas Dako (literally big sand: characterized by pearly-white beaches) or Bas Diyot (literally small sand which has rocky beaches). Both beaches are wonderful for snorkeling and diving. For serious dive sessions, check out Pescador Islands. It’s only a few minutes off Moalboal.

  4. When we came to Cebu on vacation mid-1960’s – early 1970’s – my Tio Dido Flores was the parish priest at Moalboal – we usually spent at least a week to 10 days at the convent there – went boating, swimming, played tennis and of course, spent a lot of time around the beaches just enjoying the peaceful ambience and magnificent views.

    Early in the morning, when my sister and I would hear the church bells ring, we would peak out our bedroom window to see who is at mass so early but then if we are caught by Tio Dido – he made us attend mass!
