Swim, snorkel and scuba dive

Mactan Island is well known for its lovely beaches. The water temperature in the sea hovers around a cosy 27-30°C throughout the year, making diving and snorkelling possible and comfortable at any time. If you’d rather stay dry, you can also rent a glass-bottomed boat.

Hilungtungan Island Marine Park is a great stop, as is the world-famous Moalboal and Pescador in the southern part of Cebu. All of these places are renowned for their beautiful coral reefs and exotic tropical fish. If you have more time, you can head out to the Bohol Islands, where white sands and isolated beaches will make you want to extend your holiday indefinitely.
