Nature really understands how to create something that keeps us earth dwellers in amazement. Imagine a resort located on the scenic Bantayan Island, Philippines that has it’s own cave with steps going down into the sparkling blue waters and the grounds decorated in flowers overlooking the bright blue sea.

If you have a bit of the explorer in you …you can invision yourself drifting into nowhere as your eyes look into the cavern of bright shinning waters. After making your way by swimming and stepping between stones you eventually reach the end and witness some light and a few bats flying overhead as if to dare you even more. The cave is sealed off to the mysteries of the underground and it makes you wonder what other cave systems could be imbedded in the earth’s maze.

The resort is already working on another cave system… so who knows what the future brings with the exploration of another underground system maybe leading directly to the ocean full of hidden treasures and new species of fish yet to be discovered.

Ogtong Cave is a complete resort reasonably priced for foreign travelers complete with jazzui rooms, wedding suites, and naturally designed lodges set in a picture perfect setting. The grounds abound with well manicured gardens, footpaths, and a sparkling bright swimming pool overlooking the sea.

As you stroll around the gardens you can also have lunch in a small tree house or dine in the fully equipped restaurant where the fish of the day is caught fresh daily (probably just in front of the resort by local fisherman) and served to perfection in an outdoors setting overlooking the Ogtong Cave Resort.

Different type of native birds are in outdoor cages with a rare Phillipino Oriole taking front stage. Also you can say hello to the billy goat and watch the newly added fish aquarium located in the main restaurant.

Bantayan Island is located about four and one half hours from Cebu City in the province of Cebu. You can either hire a taxi from the airport or take the direct bus from the north terminal for about 80 pesos to Hagnaya approximately three hours. Then take the ferry from Hagnaya for about 120 pesos one and half hours to Santa Fe, Bantayan Island.

Ogtong Cave resort is located just outside Santa Fe heading south towards Bantayan. Resort signs are well marked and you can drive or take a tricycle.

So there you have it…..a complete natural resort fit for a King or Queen at affordable prices. You can stay in a twin Seaview Villa with air and ref and TV for about $70.00 US per night. Why not make a reservation now and enjoy the luxury of a five star resort on a hidden island in the Philippines.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: The average size of a newborn kangaroo is the size of a coffee bean.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: Water! Water, Water, everywhere and not a drop to drink! You can start to save water by turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth. You can take a three minute military naval shower. Wet yourself, soap yourself, and then rinse. Just by doing those simple things you can help save millions of gallons of water.

ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Water is everything! Do your part to help conserve water and life. It’s critical to our survival!

From here to Infinity is a relatively short ride! The next leg takes eons and eons as you fly through the Barycentric Dynamical Time Zone! …and on and on and on.
