Many people who come to Bantayan Island are not aware that the Island has a very large fishing and farming community. Bantayan Island is known as the «Egg Basket» of Cebu. Amazingly, Bantayan Island is the largest producer of fresh crab anywhere in the Philippines. One of the major sources of income for the people of the island is from the fishing trade. Large quantities of fish are found off shore from Bantayan Island that come from the rich sea life of the China sea. A visit at the local fish market in Bantayan is a «must» while you stay at THE OCOY Hotel & Villas, a perfect combination of LUXURY living & LOCAL touch.
