Cebu Island

Everything you Need to Know about Cebu Island

Cebu is the largest island in the Visayas region and is particularly rich in historical significance with regards to the Philippines' colonisation at the hands of the Spanish. The original capital, until Manila's appointment, Cebu was demoted during the 17th century. Sporting the nickname ‘The Queen of the South’, it has six cities – Cebu, Danao, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, Toledo and Talisay; and 47 smaller towns.

To this day it still remains a prominent and popular part of the archipelago, boasting the most ethnically diverse population. Its inhabitants are an interesting bunch, made up Malay, Chinese, Filipino and an ever-growing number of westerners. It is now considered to be the most dynamic island in the Philippines, attracting native and international tourists in droves.

Cebu has a narrow coastline, limestone plateaus, and coastal plains. It also has rolling hills, and rugged mountain ranges traversing the northern, and southern lengths of the island, with the highest mountain standing over 1,000 metres tall.

There is a great variety of manmade and natural wonders to feast your eyes on, before you even get to the indulgences of lazing on the pristine beaches and filling up on the delectable local fare. In short, Cebu has all your heart could desire from a holiday destination.
