Nice Relaxing Great Nature

If you like nature, you should go. Water is clear, you can see so many sea creature. It is a nice walk to get to the end of bridge where you can observe wild birds.

Bird watching at Olango Island

Olango Island is easy to reach by public transportation. From pier it will take about an hour to reach it. The wildlife sanctuary for migratory birds! DENR is taking good care of the place.
It was almost deserted when we visited it so we had quiet time birdwatching. So many birds of various colors and sizes, so beautiful!
One can stay to camp in the island but you need to have all the basic provisions. Facilities need to be improved especially their comfort room.

Solo biking mini adventure - bring food!

Since Olango island is just a 20 min boat ride away from Mactan and I heard that bike rentals were now a thing there, I went there to tour the island for half a day.

Getting there I left from the port near Movenpick Hotel in Punta Engaño, Lapu-Lapu City. I took the regular ferry (P15.00 per ticket) - Isuggest going there 30 minutes earlier than planned since the ferry may run late. On Olango island port in Sta. Rosa, it’s a 15-20 min walk from the port walkway to the island itself. There are no covered walks so might as well take a tricycle (a Filipino version of tuktuk)or a motorcycle to the town proper. The view was already quite calming with the clear waters (generally) and green mangroves greeting the eye. The bike rental shop is a kilometer from the port where I rented out one for just P10 an hour! Pick your bike wisely tho, some look old. I heard there were at least two bike rental shops but I went to the closest one. The locals are friendly enough to ask around.

The southeastern part of the island coastline heading to the bird sanctuary is scenic with several stretches of road passing under a canopy of trees. It’s a nice trip to just take in the moment around the island and seeing the local life. Just watch out for speeding vehicles one in a while. For the most part, the road was all for me to pass.

It took me 30-40 minute to get to the Bird Sanctuary and 30 going minutes back. I had to speed up since I went there midday and shade is scarce on the road. Advise bringing water and food since it’s hard to find a decent place to get lunch unless you’re in a resort or in the town proper.

Unplanned trip to Olango Island

It was one of those unplanned trip that actually happened and turns out to be great. There are few things you can do when you visit the island, like visiting the marine and wildlife sanctuary or check into one of there resorts. For our Olango trip, we decided to visit the infamous bird watching “Wildlife Sanctuary”. A guide will be at the post to teach you how to use the binoculars and what bird is what.
