The southwestern town of Ronda used to be called Huluyaw, which was derived from the name of a banana plant that thrived in the area. It was established by a local chieftain named Pongtod, who later adopted the name Villagonzalo after a Spanish decree ordered all inhabitants of the Philippines to adopt a Spanish name. The name of the town was later changed to Ronda after the Spaniards noted that two highlands flanked the place, which was similar to a place in Spain with the same name.
The Liog-Liog rock formation can be found along one of the beaches of the town. The rock formation has a narrow base that forms into what appears to be a neck. This explains the name since the Cebuano word for neck is “liog.”
Aside from the Liog-Liog rock formation, the town is also home to a white sand beach that some visitors refer to as a mini-Boracay. One renowned tourist spot of the town is the Lusno Falls. The town also hosts a marine sanctuary where tropical fish thrive.
You can get on a bus bound for Ronda at the Cebu South Bus Terminal. Tell the driver or conductor to let you off at the town proper. From the town, you can hop on a motorcycle for hire going to the beach where the rock formation is situated. You can find it along the beach close to the Kasadya Aqua Park.
