The island of Cebu is one of the most sought after destinations in the Philippines. It is a strategically-located travel hub to the rest of the country that is easily reachable by several modes of transport. The province along with its surrounding islands boasts of spectacular beaches, dive spots, majestic waterfalls, delicious food and so many more. Plus, the capital, Cebu City is a cultural hotspot that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Cebu is also home to mother nature’s artworks and is highly sought after for its diverse marine life. Head on over to the south of Cebu for an exhilarating canyoneering adventure at Kawasan Falls and to Moalboal to swim with thousands of sardines. You can also head up north to the ethereal Bantayan Island for some sky-diving, and to Malapascua Island, to swim with thresher sharks.

If that’s not enough, you can easily hop to nearby islands like Bohol, Negros (Dumaguete) or other major cities. Take full advantage of Cebu’s strategic location in Central Philippines and well-connected flight/ferry network.
