A small treehouse located deep in the Ecuadorian wilderness is popular for its infinity swing hanging from a tree at the top of a steep hill. It's often referred to as the "swing at the end of the world" because of the thrilling ride while suspended above a sea of clouds and the thick forest below it. A similar attraction can be found in Bali, which is a whole lot easier to get to because of the visa-free entry and frequent budget fares. But you actually don't have to go beyond our seas because the Philippines has its own infinity swing located at Bacalla Woods Campsite in San Fernando, Cebu.
Bacalla Woods Campsite is described as "the home of artists, environmentalists, explorers, extreme sports athletes, campers, and all nature enthusiasts." Instead of a hotel building with five-star amenities, it offers a no-frills and laid-back vacation through hammocks and tents. There's only one cabin where you can share a meal or interact with fellow backpackers, do yoga at sunrise, or plan your next adventure—from canyoneering to surfing, trekking, biking, and spelunking—in nearby sites.
Since the place has no cellular signal, you have no choice but to experience the great outdoorsâride a tire swing, climb the rope web, practice your moves in the small skateboard rink, and hang out by the watering hole (a real one, not your favorite drinking spot). But the highlight of it all is the infinity swing facing the majestic mountain ranges of Cebu. With all these activities available at the campsite, it would be hard to go back to your day-to-day routine in the city.
Overnight rates start at P200. Bacalla Woods Campsite is in Libo, Ilaya, San Fernando, Cebu. Walk-ins are not allowed. For bookings and inquiries, send a message to 0923-825-6945 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, follow Bacalla Woods Campsite on Facebook.
