Oslob is a small village south of Cebu, near the southern tip of Cebu Island. It has recently started blossoming into a tourist stop due to whale sharks that swim close to the coast. This tourist attraction is somewhat controversial due to the fact that fisherman lure them into the coast by feeding them. It is left to the reader to decide if they want to support this.
Many Buses to and from Cebu city go to Oslob
- Go see Tumalog falls a cascading waterfall, is 15 minutes drive away. Ask someone in the village to take you there. Entrance fee is 20 pesos.
- At time of writing there is not that much to do apart from snorkelling or diving with the whale sharks. This occurs between 6:30 and 12:00 and in December 2014 was 1500 pesos to dive, 1000 pesos for a snorkel and swim, and 500 pesos to stay on the boat. As a result many visit here for a day trip from Cebu (city).
