Mactan Travel Guide

Mactan Island in the province of Cebu, Philippines, is a top choice for those who want to enjoy a luxurious holiday. Its beaches may not be as impressive as the country’s prime destinations like Boracay, but it has enough to attract many tourists, offering urban comforts in a spot far from all the hustle and bustle of city life.


The biggest draw of Mactan is its impressive array of high-end resorts, restaurants, and whatnot. You can enjoy a five-star hotel experience whether you choose to stay at Dusit Thani, Shangri-La, Plantation Bay Resort, or Crimson Resort and Spa. Meanwhile, the Scape Skydeck can give you a super chic skybar dining experience with a 360-degree view of the island while you enjoy a delectable menu. Playing on the water in an upscale fashion is also possible when you visit the island. Scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing, and flyfish rides are just some of the indulgent activities available.

Mactan Island is also pretty accessible via the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, a major hub for domestic and international flights. It’s also a great jump-off point in exploring the other hip attractions in the province, especially Cebu City.

Pro tip: Remember to set your minimum/maximum price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
