"'Camote', replied the island ancestors when asked by the Spaniards about the name of the place. The natives were harvesting sweet potatoes (camote) then and thought that the Spaniards were asking what they were digging. That's how the group of islands got its name according to local folklore".

For me to get there I had to take a bus from Cebu city to Danao Port and take a ferry from there to Camotes island. It took me about 2.5 hours to get to th ...
Although Camotes is made up three islands: Pacijan, Poro, and Ponson, much of the attractions in Camotes seemed to be concentrated in Pacijan. The beach resorts are found mostly on the western side of the island. The town of San Francisco (the only town in Pacijan Island) looked like the most progressive of the towns in Camotes as well.
