Easter getaways in the Philippines

As the world observed the Holy Week with a long weekend, families can reflect and bond together at Bantayan Island in Cebu. Bantayan Island is a perfect getaway during the Christian Holy Week. You can combine a holiday relaxing on the fine white sands of the beaches here, while enjoying small town life and the traditional religious celebrations of this period. Bantayan is Cebu’s oldest parish, and demonstrates its faith in a solemn carroza (carriage) procession. The carriages are elaborately decorated and illuminated, and carry life-sized images of biblical characters that played a part in the passion and death of Christ.
