Having Fun in Funtastic Island

From one cliff diving adventure to the other, me and my equally adventurous friends didn't pass up the opportunity to try the highest Cliff Jump in Cebu- the Colorful, Funtastic Island in Gibitngil Island, Kawit, Medellin.

So one Sunday morning, we woke up really early (5:00am early) and got ready.

How to get there:
Option A: Commuter's Way
1.) Take a bus from North Bus Terminal to Kawit, Medellin. Bus fare woud cost you around 150php and 3-4hrs travel time.
2.) I am not very sure though where the route of the Bus ends but you can de-bus at the Kawit Town Proper, buy all your necessities (i.e., Food for Lunch like Lechon Manok can be bought at the town, water, etc.), and take a motorcycle to the Kawit Port.
3.) From the Kawit Port, negotiate for a boat ride going to Funtastic Island. Prices are usually 1200php for small groups of 5-6 people and 1500php for big groups of up to 20 people (2-way). The boat ride usually takes about 15-20mins.
You'll definitely know when you've arrived in Funtastic Island when you see all those beautiful and colorful cottages! So pleasing to the eyes!! :)

Option B: Road-trippin with your Own Car
1.) Navigate your way to Kawit Port, Kawit, Medellin. It's convenient that way and if you're afraid you'll get lost, don't. Helpful signs will point you in the right direction. Also, they have guides who will lead you to the Port and Parking Area. Speaking of Parking, they have safe parking spaces (house yard turned parking) where you can leave your car for 100php.
2.) Same as above, from there, take a boat to Funtastic Island and enjoy. ☺

By the way, bring your own food before going to the Island because there's no food sold there. Maybe a Sari-Sari Store but no food good for lunch.
I would recommend for you to call up the Municipality prior to going there to reserve a Cottage and maybe negotiate a boat. The municipality initially gave us a deal for 900php boat good for 6people but unfortunately, their boat was unavailable.
Cottages on the other hand would cost you from 200php~350php. Another tip, take the 350php. It's nearer the water and you can look over your belongings while having fun swimming.
Aside from Cliff Diving, you can also try Zipling across the sea for 50php.
Whooohoooo!! Longest 2seconds of my life!! Hahahaha
Floaters - 50php
And that is our colorful, exiting and adventurous Summer!
I thank God for the gift of nature and for giving me friends to enjoy it with! ☺
