Nalusuan Island is part of Olango Island Group, together with other satellite islets namely: Caohagan, Sulpa, Gilutongan, Camungi, and Panganan. It used to be a sand bar only, but was improved and eventually transformed into a resort named Nalusuan Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary.
This man-made resort can be found along Cebu Strait and is administratively under the town of Cordova, a municipality in the 6th district of Cebu. The islet got its name from the local term “kalusuan” (its old name, which also literally means “penis” in Cebuano) that the fishermen fondly thought of mainly because of the wide range of penis-shaped sea cucumbers surrounding this part of the island.
Nalusuan Island Resort & Marine Sanctuary is the complete name of this resort that’s almost one hectare in total land area. It’s a private and relaxing venue for spending quality times with family, friends, and significant others. The man-made resort can be reached via a motorized banca from Mactan, Cebu, requiring 30 minutes only of sea travel. Nalusuan Resort is open for day tours and overnight stays. Some of the fun activities that can be done here are swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling, which gives guests a glimpse into the island’s rich and well-protected coral gardens. If you choose to go to Nalusuan for your next leisure break, you may also take pictures of the island’s stunning and all-white sandbar!
