Panagsama Beach in Moalboal, Cebu

Gera and I have been shopping for accommodations in Moalboal online, and most websites we’ve visited display pretty galleries that invigorate our excitement to swim. In contrast, the shore wasn’t similar to the galleries we’ve seen. There are plenty of cccommodations in Panagsama Beach they are close to each other so comparing them is no hassle. Rates range from 450 – 2500. The beach is small and frankly there’s not much room to swim, there are seafront accommodations but our guide mentioned that we may not be allowed to swim to the beachfront section of another resort. That is so sad because some resorts noticeably own a very small area that’s about 15 meters wide, and some are a little wider. The shore is well maintained, clean and it shares a fair portion with seagrasses.
