Nalusuan Island: A Marine Sanctuary ♥

Nalusuan island, our second destination happens to be a marine ans fish sanctuary just like Gilutungan island. You can easily identify the island through it's long wooden bridge.

TRIVIA!

According to some, NALUSUAN ISLAND was derived from the Visayan/ Cebuano term "LUSU" which means PENIS in English. Lol! In the past, some sailors went around Cebu particularly around Mactan and found this beautiful island paradise. which was uninhabited. The water was so inviting (which I agree!) and they opted to swim. They didn't bring any swimwear with them o they decided to go skinny dipping. The fishermen in the nearby island spotted the foreigners and that's how the name of the island came to birth. So that basically means NALUSUAN ISLAND is synonymous to PENIS ISLAND... hahaha
This is the wooden bridge I was telling you about. It's beautiful, isn't it? 
Since our island hopping spree was in a weekend, the isladn was jampacked with local tourists. 

Mermaids take SHELLfies, too!
