We are all back to work, thank God. Well, we are still in summer season, and we are proud to inform our compoblanos y maga visita that the City Government will  conduct the  summer activities for our banner destination STA CRUZ  ISLAND.

On weekends of this month (May) from May 14-28,2016, there will be games and surprises for our island visitors. The different activities will include the Treasure Hunt...hahahaha, don’t take it the literal way. Treasure Hunt,  meaning competing groups will take photos of important features of the island. They will upload their pictures on facebook using a designated hash tag. Laugh out Loud (LOL) I know, some became so curious, lol, thinking of the valuable treasures that Don Pepot might have left behind centuries ago in the island ...Nuay ding, Bleh!

We shall have the amateur  photography contest  with some categories; Best Panoramic Shot,Best shot in Beach Activity, Best eco-shot ( in Lagoon ), Best detailed shot of the Pink sand and best location shot (the sand bar).

Logo competition and Sand Sculpture contest also comprise the major events. Other pocket events to experience while you are at  Sta Cruz Island will be the 3 on 3 Boat racing, Island Race and Bucket Challenge. Yes Dahling, there will be cash prizes, in fact , our accounting department will make sure to send representatives to countercheck the cash prizes to be given to the winners, PARA CLARO, Gracias Ma’am Bibing Binarao!

I suggest you bring your family if you have time for them to enjoy. Just have your own food and water, cay nuay pa restorante na isla hasta ara.  Of course you need to pay the corresponding island related fees;  like the  terminal fee which is Five( 5)  pesos per person, 20 pesos per person for beach entrance and the boat ride ( round trip ) is 100 pesos per head ....Should you have questions or clarifications, do not hesitate to call the City Tourism Office at 9923007 or PM us on facebook at TURISMO LOCAL DE ZAMBOANGA.
