#ExperienceCordova Mobile Photography Walk

Cebu Content Creators, in partnership with Mobile Photography Philippines, is presenting #ExperienceCordova – a mobile photography photowalk covering the beautiful and photogenic spots of the town of Cordova, Cebu.

Special thanks to our sponsors for making this photowalk a reality.

Photowalk Details

The photowalk will be held on May 25, 2019. Meetup time is at 1:00 PM at the Cordova Church. Everyone who enjoys taking photos with their smartphones, want to level up their mobile photography skills, and looking to meet fellow photography enthusiasts are all invited to join. You prefer to use a DSLR or a mirrorless camera? No problem, you can join as well!

The photowalk’s main purpose is to discover the beauty of Cordova. While going around on foot, expect to see new angles and perspectives in this municipality that you would not ordinarily notice if you’re just passing through by car.

Photowalk Route

To maximize photography opportunities, the Experience Cordova photowalk route will cover these locations:

  • San Roque Church (Meet-up point)
  • Cordova Public Market
  • Roro Dos
  • Day-as (Lantaw & 10K Roses)
  • Buagsong (Entoy’s Bakasi & Sunset Spot)
  • Gabi  (Night shots and food market)

As an option, you can go with the organizers to visit Pilipog Public Market (early in the morning at 5:30 am to catch the sunrise).

Participants can expect plenty of sunset and night photo opportunities, weather permitting. So ready yourself to take tons of stunning landscape, people interest, and town shots.

Why Explore Cordova?

A municipality located off the southern coast of Mactan Island, Cordova has plenty of beauty to offer. The Day-As Boardwalk and Marine Park, for example, is a great place to hang out with friends and family. Enjoy each other’s company and the scenery. Then there is Buagsong where you can catch sight of a gorgeous sunset almost every day.

Visitors are also encouraged to visit the public markets in the municipality to get a better view of the local life and to interact with the residents. For those of you who like beaches, snorkeling, and marine life – Cordova will not disappoint. Nalusuan Island and Gilutongan Island are part of the municipality and they are excellent destinations for all ocean and beach lovers.

Join the Explore Cordova Photowalk and see for yourself what this part of Cebu is all about!

How to Enjoy the Photowalk to the Fullest

Have your lunch before the meetup so you will have plenty of energy to walk around and be creative with your photos.

Be sure to bring a bottle of water as well to keep yourself hydrated. Don’t forget your extra batteries or power banks. It would be such a shame if your phone runs out of juice just as new photogenic spots come into view.

Don’t be shy as well once you meet the other participants. This is a perfect opportunity to learn from others and to become friends with fellow smartphone photography enthusiasts.

Lastly, enjoy the ebb and flow of the local lifestyle as we explore the municipality. Let your creativity shine, open your mind, and let Cordova surprise you!

Few Reminders

What to bring:

  • Mobile phone
  • pocket wifi
  • selfie stick (if you want)
  • extra cash (for site entrances and snacks)


  1. Wear clothing that would not attract unwanted attention.
  2. Always stick with the group.
  3. Always be mindful of traffic.
  4. Always approach your subjects with a smile and try asking for their permission. Do not forget to thank them afterwards.
  5. Wear comfortable shoes. We will be walking for hours and nothing ruins the fun more than sore feet.
