A multifaceted holiday experience of natural beauty and historical significance

Find beachfront relaxation in Mactan Island, underwater adventures in Oslob, or a journey into history in Cebu City.

Cebu is an island province in the Philippines, offers a blend of natural beauty, historical richness, and vibrant urban life. It's a holiday destination that caters to diverse preferences, from beach enthusiasts to history buffs. It boasts a stunning coastline and some of the best beach destinations in the Philippines. Mactan Island, just off the coast of Cebu, is a prime example. It's home to luxurious resorts and beautiful sandy shores. For a quieter experience, visit Bantayan Island or the southern town of Moalboal, known for its crystal-clear waters and underwater attractions.

Cebu provides excellent opportunities for island-hopping adventures. Explore nearby islands like the unspoiled Camotes Islands, where you can visit caves, beaches, and natural pools. Nalusuan Island is a marine sanctuary ideal for snorkelling. This province is a paradise for water sports and underwater exploration, surrounded by vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life. Malapascua Island is famous for its thresher shark sightings, while Oslob offers the unique experience of swimming with whale sharks.

Cebu carries a rich historical legacy, often known as the "Cradle of Christianity in the Philippines." Visit the historic Basilica Minore del Santo Niño in Cebu City, the oldest Roman Catholic church in the country. Fort San Pedro, a historic fortification, offers a glimpse into Cebu's colonial past. For more cultural events, festivals are a colourful celebration of culture and faith. The Sinulog Festival, held in January, is one of the grandest and most vibrant festivals in the Philippines. It features a grand procession and street dances in honour of the Santo Niño.

Nature lovers will appreciate the Kawasan Falls in Badian, a three-tiered waterfall surrounded by lush forests. Cebu's diverse topography offers trekking and hiking options, such as the challenging Osmena Peak.

And finally it is a must to indulge in local cuisine, particularly the famous lechon (roast pig), at Carcar City's public market. Cebu is also known for its unique dessert, bibingka and sikwate (rice cake and hot chocolate).
