if one is on the look out for a hideaway, a respite from the bustle of the city or simply needs a change of scene, try to visit sta. fe in bantayan island, cebu. it doesn't have the parties and action that boracay offers nor the diving pleasure one gets from bohol or malapascua; but just the same, we enjoyed our stay.
we savored the sound of the waves and peace & quiet the beach allowed us to have even for just three days.
to feel like a local at sta. fe, one needs to experience what locals eat as well. we found out that we didn't need to spend much to fill our hungry stomachs. about two blocks from where we were staying, we came across this chicken BBQ stand, which according to our neighbors at the resort, was already in existence way back in 2005 or maybe earlier.
the residents, local and foreign visitors of sta. fe buy from this humble but very busy BBQ stand that offer delicious and juicy pork and chicken BBQ. it's a must try in case you happen to be in sta. fe.
- Pros:the local residents are friendly and probably used to having visitors all year round so don't be surprised to hear them greet you "Maayong buntag" (good day) or simply send you a shy friendly smile.
- Cons:porters tend to harass tourists at hagnaya port. my tip, ignore them completely and go about your business in buying the ticket for the ferry.
- In a nutshell:it's a peaceful paradise...
