Road trip to Adventure Café in Balamban Cebu
I had the chance to go to this breathtaking place when my friends and I decided to go there by motorcycle trip. Adventure Café is located in Gaas Balamban, Cebu which is approximately a 45-60 minute drive from JY Square Mall. It is dubbed as The First Resto Adventure in the Philippines and it’s in Cebu!
Here’s what makes the trip more exciting: You have to literally survive what seems to be endless blind curves and ravines along Transcentral Highway before you reach the café. In short, the adventure starts even before you reach the Adventure Café itself.
To go there, you can ride a V-Hire going to Balamban from Ayala Center or Citilink Terminal. Fare costs around ₱100.
Adventure Café does not only take pride on their food, but also on their adventure features such as zip lining, wall climbing, rappelling, site seeing, caving, trekking, and even throwing plates on their stress walls. It’s a perfect place to get away from the manic life in the city and to feed your wanderlust without going far.
The parking space is located at the side of the main road facing the café’s entrance which is available to any kind of vehicles.
They have a nice-looking resto inside where you can buy and order what you want. They also have several mouth-watering dishes you should try on.
They also allow you to place love locks in their stairs like that in Paris, France to symbolize your love to someone.
The zip line is awesome. You get to see the lush green mountains and beautiful sceneries while you’re up in the air. Their zip line is not really scary unless it’s your first time so you get to enjoy it. Certainly a zip line for all ages.
And if you are struggling to keep yourself from strangling someone, well, fret not! Adventure Café also has this stress wall where you can literally throw plates to that very aggravating person in your life. Good thing is; you get to release the tension from your body without actually hurting that person physically. Sounds logical, right?
The feeling is certainly like going to Baguio City and the good thing is it’s just less than an hour drive from the city. Adventure Café in Balamban, Cebu is certainly a place you should visit.
