The Caohagan Island is a marine sanctuary that stretches around three kilometers along the coast of the island. The marine sanctuary was created upon the request of the barangay officials and a benefactor of the barangay. While you can swim in any part of the island, the best area would be along the area where the sandbar is located. Technically Pandanon Island is a part of the province of Bohol, but it is accessible from Mactan Island and has become one of the most visited places for island hoppers. It features a white sand beach, clear waters and a sandbar. Pandanon Island is a good place to drop anchor for lunch or the final destination for your island hopping adventure.
Aside from the boat and guide, island hopping packages may also include lunch and snacks, entrance fees, snorkeling equipment, and life vests for those who are not comfortable swimming in the open sea. There are a good number of outfits offering island hopping packages, including Islands Banca Cruises. Some of these outfits may even offer discounts for children under 12 years old. If you are staying in one of the resorts in Mactan, they can also set up an island hopping activity for you. The prices of island hopping packages vary depending on the number of people joining the group. It can start at around PHP2,000 and can go up to around PHP5,000.
