Next you will drive to Argao, famous for its 400 year-old St. Michael Archangel Church, before visiting the town of Dalaguete, known as the vegetable capital of Cebu, and finally arriving in Oslob. Here we will depart for a brief scenic boat ride to Sumilon Island. Take in the beauty of this 60-acre island, the Philippine’s first marine reserve and one of the best dive spots in the Visayan Region.
