Three hours of land trip plus another 15 minutes of boat ride take a traveler from Cebu City to Funtastic Island in the town of Medellin in northern Cebu.
Funtastic Island is part of Gibitngil, an island-barangay gifted with sparkling waters, vast coral reefs, long stretch of sand beaches, a picturesque sand bar and rock formations reminiscent of those in Coron, Palawan.
Aside from the natural sceneries, Funtastic Island also boasts of several activities for the thrill-seekers such as a cliff-to-rock zipline, kayaking and snorkeling.

It was the holiday season of 2012 and we were itching for some getaway adventure so we decided to go to the famous Funtastic Island in Medellin. None of us in our group have been to this island before, making this trip more adventurous.

We can only stay there for 4 days and after careful planning, we all decided to visit Funtastic Island and Bantayan Island.
Seat sales are usually scheduled late at night. We left for Cebu at 11:30 PM and we arrived around 1:00 A ...
