Oslob Things to Do
While in the Philippines, if you’re looking for a fantastic outdoor experience, you’ll find plenty of things to do in Oslob.
You can get a van ride to the Tumalog Falls entrance, but they’ll let you off there because the road is too steep for safe passage by van. From there, it’s about a 15-minute walk. If you prefer not to walk, you can hire a “habal-habal” (motorcycle) driver. While here you can enjoy a picnic, swim, or simply snap photos to capture the moments. The view of Tumalog Falls is really a breathtaking experience. Note that there is an entrance fee to see the falls.
Bluewater Sumilon Island Day Tour
The jetty port going to Sumilon Island is centrally located. Once on the boat, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to the isladn. It’s a huge boat, so you don’t have to worry about being rocked too much by the waves. At the resort, you’ll find a white beach, pool, sandbar, marine sanctuary, lagoon, and a watchtower. There is a glamping site as well.
If you want to walk to the watchtower, give yourself about 30 minutes. The trek is not easy because you’ll be stepping on coral stones, so be sure to wear shoes (there is another path that is easier and you walk on soil). Once you reach the end, you’ll get the top view of the island, including the beach and the lagoon. There are actually two watchtowers, one is new and the other (the Baluarte) is an older ruin.
If you want to explore history, take the Heritage Tour. You’ll see the church of the Nuestra Senora de la Immaculada Concepcion, the cuartel (barracks/headquarters), and the Baluarte.
