Locales: Sam Despi

We ask graphic designer Sam Despi about her favorite spots in Cebu, and why she thinks they’re the best on the island. Whether they’re obvious choices or obscure destinations you’ve never heard of before, they’ll be a refreshing step off the beaten path.

PARADISE BEACH, BANTAYAN IS.

Not a lot of people know about Paradise Beach and its crystal clear waters, even though it’s featured on the Welcome to Cebu billboard at the airport. It’s in a secluded area of Bantayan Island and there are only two ways to get there: a 20-minute trek on rough terrain or by boat. The beach’s remoteness often means you’ll be the only people there, so it’s like being on your own private resort.

EMPORIUM SKATE PARK

One of my favorite places to hang out in at dusk is the Emporium Skate Park behind the Kokodine building in downtown Cebu. It’s the perfect place to watch the colors of the sunset behind the iconic Compania Maritima along SRP. Watching the skateboarders is equally mesmerizing.

A LITTLE PIECE OF SKY CAFÉ

This cozy café’s been bitten by the travel bug. Its walls and shelves are adorned with the Zosa family’s mementos from around the world. The food is yummy and the neighborhood is quiet. It’s a great place to unwind after a long day.
