#roadtrip to Cebu South: Moalboal (Part 3)

Third Stop: Snorkeling at Moalboal, Cebu

We depart from Kawasan Falls at ~ 4pm and make our way to -> Moalboal, our last stop for this #roadtrip. :)
It was a long day and we needed a nice comfortable place for a good night sleep, so off to Hale Manna Beach Resort & Coastal Garden. Previous post about the resort here and here.
Tip: Call in advance for reservation since this resort is always fully-booked

Had a stopover at the Moalboal's market and bought some fish, chicken and spices as we planned to request the resort to cook for us (we are way too tired to prepare our dinner). As soon as we arrived at the resort and settled with our respective room, had to freshen up and bathe the kids. Then, a bit of relaxing moment at the living room while listening to Ross play his digital bagpipe. Too bad I haven't been able to take a picture of us even at the place where we chat and drink (men only) the ever famous Red Horse beer before we call it a night.

The following day, after breakfast, we were set to go swimming with the sardines and turtles. We rented a boat to guide us to the sardines and turtles at P2500. The wonders of Moalboal is underneath the sea so, yep, better bring with you your snorkeling gear and camera. Sea corals are everywhere, some gently sways to where the current may bring them flexible like a bamboo trees with the winds and those huge school of sardines, never get bored looking at them, amazed at how simply synchronize they are as they change direction. Plus I get to see "Dory" and her family and little Nemos too. There are turtles too but just too elusive.
Captivated by the beauty of Moalboal's underwater scene that we lost track of time. Went back to the resort for lunch (we avail their P395.00 buffet lunch and its so sulit (worth it)!
It was a tiring 2-day adventure but one of the best thing this weekend was that you get to spend it with these lovely people. So little time, yet so worthwhile. I hope everyone had a great time. And yes I would love to do this again.
