Olango Island sits around five kilometers east of Mactan Island in Cebu. One of a group of seven islands in the region, Olango Island is mainly known for its wildlife sanctuary. However, it also offers pristine beaches, incredible dive sites, and a number of floating restaurants – the latter of which are built on stilts over the water and serve up an astonishing array of freshly cooked seafood.
Away from its beaches and offshore corals, much of the terrain of Olango Island is made up of mangrove swamps, making it a mecca for all sorts of wildlife. The Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the largest known concentration of migratory birds in the Philippines. A haven for birds migrating from Siberia, Northern China, and Japan, there are said to be just under 100 species of bird at the sanctuary, with around half being migratory species and the remainder being permanent residents of the island.
You can reach Olango Island via the the Punta Engano Pier next to the Hilton Hotel in Lapu-Lapu City on Mactan Island. The pier can be easily reached from central Cebu by taxi.
