The town of Badian in Cebu is best known for the world-famous Kawasan Falls. Unknown to many travelers who visit this town, Badian also a beautiful beach that's worth visiting. It's Lambug Beach, some 15-minute ride by tricycle from the highway.
Here's why you should go:
1. It's close to the city. Sort of. Yeah, some three hours on the road. Considering its proximity to the city--plus, it's a laidback beach free from the crowd, with crystal-clear water and creamy fine sand---I think nothing comes close to Lambug Beach.
2. It's close to everything else. After beach bumming, the next day's adventure may be at Kawasan Falls, Pescador Island, Badian Island, and Moalboal.
3. It's cheap. The fact that it's a public beach, it's an inexpensive quick fix to getting some sea, sand, and sun. Transporation from Cebu City is less than P200. You can bring your own food. Pitch a tent at the beachfront. Or you can come in groups and get a dorm-type accommodation at Lambug Beach Homestay for as low as P400 per guest.
WHERE TO STAY
I was very choosy picking our accommodation. I made several text messages and phone calls, and among the few who returned my inquiry, Lambug Beach Homestay stood out. Great reviews on Facebook and Airbnb, too, so I was at peace that I was getting a good deal. It's not beachfront, yeah, but it's only a stone's throw away from the beach.
Lambug Beach Homestay has six rooms which can accommodate a total of 54 guests. It's a perfect host for team building activities. Also, given the comfort and quality of customer service, their accommodation is very well priced.
