I have not been in this island, but my parents are from Loon. My Nanay is from the town proper,marcojos-relampagos clan, near the big catholic church and she always mention of this island, even though we only come to Loon to visit on fiestas. she knows alot of last names here, like the lapez in particular. my family visited loon in 2008 but we missed this place due to the schedule. i won't miss this next time, probably 2011. thank you for the website.

Dear Site Administrator and Cabilaonons, I think this website really informative, but I have an additional question: Is Cabilao Island also ideal for just swimming (in a bikini, not a wetsuit :P) and lounging around? I'm not particularly "talented" with water and I'm not a diver at all. I'm just looking for a good place to vacation at in Bohol. I'm concerned that it could be a diving spot like Anilao, where the beach is really rocky and you basically have to be a diver to really enjoy the place. My email address is: I hope I get some feedback. Your comments would be really appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, i am Eric, 22 years old ... it was a pleasure to know that as i've searched google and suddenly found the place where i used to love when i was young, a remarkable place to me, full of memories... But sad to say, i felt anguish & fear upon hearing this place... For about 13 years now, we haven't been in this place, for HEARTACHES memories are still crashing our minds. I know, the people of talisay or mostly the cabilaonons are very warmth hearted persons... I still remember that when summer arrives, our mother took us to this place whom it is the NATIVE LAND of my father. Seeing my relatives means so much to us... Greeting our grandparents, talking to our uncles/aunties, chatting to our cousins and keep on smiling to those neighbors who keep looking to us (because we are new faces to them). I still remember that they have a fiesta celebration often celebrated between the 2nd & 3rd week of May if i am not mistaken. The place was so nice, it was liked a paradise. (yet, it is not for me 13 years ago). Why? ahhm i know that this is not the right site for me to tell this things but it helps me to encouraged myself to forgive the past. It is about our father, he has this kind of mental illness, when he's drunk he keeps on bragging my mother because he was jealous to this guy or to those men even without my mother's knowledge. There is this one time that he almost kill my mother using a knife and sadly we saw that incident, thanks to GOD and to those people (relatives, cousins & neighbors) there who helps my Mother to be safe. At my young age, it was stick to my mind that we should leave the place for our safety. That's when i knew why my parent's are separated, it's beacuse of HIM and his sick MIND. From then on, we never been in that place, I keep on dreaming that someday, I can go back to that place without fear, for we have memories that left there. To have a happy vacation, to reunite again to our relatives that have long been seen. Without the shadows of HIM...

I am a native of Cabilao, now living in Paranaque. Thank you for featuring my hometown. It's purely a lovely place including its residents. Having its wonders expose to the public will always be an honor to me as a local growing up in this island. I am looking forward for it to be more featured in any kind of media like the internet. And I, myself, would promote it. Please come visit this wonderful piece of creation. Surely a trip will be fulfilling. Thank you and God bless.

I visited Cabilao last in 1982.... It is a very beautiful Island. I met the Lapez Family when they first opened up their resort down the road from my grandfathers home. I'll never forget the hospitality I received from all the people of Cabilao. I've since lost contact with most relatives their since most of the elders have passed. It would be great to hear from someone who possibly met me while I was their. Thanks, Bill Masadas

Cabilao Island is the real paradise on earth. The serenity surrounding the island is just amazing. It is ideal for vacations, diving or just plain "getting-away-from-it-all". If you want some introspection or just some peace and quiet, come to Cabilao.

coolneSs! when i first saw this page, i couldn't help but force my fingers to drop something. Swear. It's been a while since I last visited my place and whOa, seeing this exclusive page REALLY brought me into a nostalgic fit. Huhu..I miss the island terribly! I can't wait to be back savoring the place again. And I have no qualms of shouting to the whole world that 'am a true-blue 'Cabilaonon!' wHY? Cabilaonons love to overdo things the best way we can, and if we love to overdo it, just imagine how it is to be our "GUEST!" i dare say...

It's good to know you feature Cabilao Island, my father's hometown (or should I say home island). I could still recall those times that he would brought us to this wonderful island to visit our relatives (the Lapez, Masadas and Molina clan). Wow time flies so fast and I havent been there for quite sometime now. On my next trip back to the Philippines Cabilao will be on my list. I miss Bohol so much can't wait to come home to my island province...

I am just so happy to see this website featuring the most loved island of my father. My father was from Cabilao, Ireneo M. Lapez, the youngest brother of Atty. Ramon M. Lapez of the Lapez clan. I am just amazed how he loved this island so much and having had visited this tranquil island with full of serene air, people here are indeed hospitable and unbelievably caring and loving.

Thank you for featuring Cabilao island, that's where my roots came from...too bad I've never visited the place for almost ten years now. I never thought the island will be that popular as it is today. I used to take that place for granted. Thanks to your article, it's an eye-opener for me...

Hi Jeroen, I really like your website and your great appreciation to Bohol's wonders. I'm looking forward that you will feature my hometown Guindulman and its less popular but very beautiful marine eco park in Basdio (Guindulman Bay). Whenever I miss my place I would just surf your website. You are an imptortant intrument of making boholanos connected from any part of the world. Thanks....

I already have an article on Eastern Bohol, where Basdio is named, but I haven't been able to visit the Marine eco-park yet. Also, sometimes, these parks or reservations are not open to visitors without a permit, which may take some time to obtain.--Jeroen.

Thanks for the information on Cabilao Island. I'll be in Cebu City at the end of December and may go to Bohol. Can I ask about how much the boat ride costs? How about the accomodation prices? Thanks again. Dan PS: I'm an American living and working in Tokyo.

Jeroen: Thanks a lot for featuring the beautiful island of Cabilao! I am from Loon and I have been to Cabilao several times and will always go back there to bring friends. By the way, may I have your permission to quote some statements from your article on Cabilao? I am about to write an article on Loon, including Cabilao, and I would like to include an outsider's (your) view of my hometown. I hope this is OK for you. Thanks in advance and best wishes!
