One of the most amazing places to visit when you are in Cebu is the Camotes Islands. The islands are part of the Cebu province and can be found in the east of Cebu Island. The Camotes group of islands is composed of four islands which are Pacijan, Poro, Ponson, and Tulang. Travel is easier between Pacijan and Poro Islands since these two islands are more significant than the others in terms of size and are connected to each other by a bridge. And unknown to many tourists, the islands are one of the best places to visit in Cebu.
