Bantayan Island is definitely one of the best islands in the Philippines with beautiful beaches and tourist attractions. It is one of the popular tourist destinations in Cebu. Its well-known municipality is Santa Fe where you can find the fine, pristine white sand beach, crystal clear waters and stroll around other beautiful attractions just within the vicinity.
STA. FE, BANTAYAN’S MAIN ATTRACTIONS
If you are planning to visit Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island, I strongly suggest to rent a motorbike which only costs P300 or bicycle that costs P150 for 24 hours to fully enjoy and roam around the Bantayan Island at your own pace and to save more time and money. There are many rentals available, you can ask around. You can also ask the hotel and resort care taker about the bicycle and motorbike rentals.
Alternatively, there are many tricycles in the island that can carry 4 to 5 persons but it gets costly in the long run if you plan to visit the spots. (500 to 600 pesos for 5 destinations)
