Travel Cebu - Lambug, Badian

Going out with my wife is one of the best moments I always treasure. We don't choose what place to visit as long as we're having fun and we never miss a good conversation. What I like about Ivane is that she never seldom complains and she always share what she's thinking. Anyway, (sudden shift lol) In my search for a nice and secluded white sand beach in Cebu, I came across with some interesting photos about Lambug Beach in Badian Cebu. 

Compared to other white sand beaches in Cebu, Lambug beach is not crowded, so I was thinking this could be a nice place to visit on a weekend.

Me with the colorful boats


The place did not fail us. If I'm not mistaken, the white powdery beach stretches more than 1 kilometer. We rented this hut for P150 only and that already included electricity, utensil and comfort room usage. We stayed there just for a day but the place had a handful of cottage options where you can actually rent for an overnight stay. 




Time for a volleyball fun!





I'm not just sure if there are available boats you can rent for island hopping or snorkeling but I saw a few small boats anchored on the shore.



There weren't a lot of hermit crabs in the place. I found this strolling  alone.


There weren't a lot of sea creatures here compared to the Hidden Beach in Aloguinsan, but the sand in Lambug is an edge.


So I guess, the next time we might visit Badian, its not just Moalboal that will come in our mind but maybe Lambug Beach as well.


My 2 cents:

  • In going there. You can find buses in Cebu South Bus Terminal bound to Badian, just tell the bus conductor to drop you off in the junction going to Badian Golf Course (2-3 hours of travel), and rent a tricycle to bring you to Lambug Beach (trike fair is P15 /person).
  • Food and Drinks. Bring your own, but if you want to instead buy food there, you might need to visit the market first and ride a tricycle going to Lambug beach (10mins trike travel from market to Lambug).
  • Bring a tent. If you have one, it'll be more fun I guess and lesser expense in paying for the hut rental.
  • In going home. Air-conditioned buses (according to a lady we met) passes every 2 hours but there are still regular buses. Just be ready to be dizzy, its gonna be a 2-3 hours bumpy ride back to Cebu. Don't forget to bring home ampao and chicharon when you pass by Car-car.

  13. Another great beach Cebu has to offer. Ganda ng white sands. Just curious, why few hermit crabs, sabi ng mga old folks, isa raw sa character ng good beach ay yung plenty of hermit crabs. Baka naka day-off lang sila. LOL

  16. This reminded me of Canigao Island in Southern Leyte. The beach there is on of the greatest that I've seen so far. Another similarity is even though these beaches are not crowded, electricity is available which is a great plus 1 in my opinion.

    1. I've been to Canigao too, it was a nice isolated island with flourishing creatures/corals surrounding the place. Lambug boast its calmness and simplicity.

  25. Hi, do you have to pay if you use a tent for overnight stay? thanks ahead.

    1. Nope, that beach in Lambug is a public beach.

      the problem with staying in a tent is access to toilet and electricity... i suggest you ask the nearest cottages rental to let you access their toilet or use electricity with a fee.. :D
