Olango Island, an island 5 kilometers east of Mactan Island, Cebu, is not only known for its wildlife sanctuary and dive sites but also for its floating restaurants that cater mostly to tourists. These restaurants on stilts offer fresh seafoods--you can choose from live grouper (lapu-lapu), parrot fish, mackerel, blue marlin, squid, abalone, lobster, prawns, crabs, oysters, scallops, clams and other shellfish. You can have it grilled, deep-fried, pan-fried, steamed, mixed with vegetables or eat them raw. For the adventurous, there's puffer fish, jellyfish, stingray, different kinds of seaweeds and other exotic fares. Boats are parked by the restaurants' ladder and we hopped from the boat onto the ladder. The water was not deep so no worries about falling into the water. Our boatman was also kind enough to assist us in case we'd lose our balance. We had a great lunch here. It wasn't cheap but it was a delightful dining experience.
Olango Island is about 20 minutes by boat from Hilton pier in Mactan.
