We ran into a different kind of traffic in Moalboal. The kind you'd love yourself to be stuck into any day - sardine run underwater! This is one of the highlights of our trip to Moalboal. I have always wanted to go to Moalboal. I first learned about this place from a college friend of mine around 4 years ago. It has always been in my bucket list, but I can't seem to find the perfect time to go there. I have been to Cebu numerous times in the past years but I kept on skipping Moalboal. You should not make the same mistake I did. Go and see Moalboal the soonest you can - while it's marine life is still rich and unadulterated.

According to folklore, Moalboal has a spring where many of the locals get their water. Once, a foreigner asked a woman with a cleft what the place was called. The woman thought he was asking her about the spring so she said that it was a bukal-bukal. However, because of her speech impediment, her words came out sounding like Moalboal and that was how the town got its name.
