Cebu Travel Guide

The island province of Cebu, with its capital at Cebu City, lies amidst the Visayan island group, between the two larger islands of Luzon (to the north) and Mindanao (to the south) and is characterized by narrow coastline opening out to a fertile coastal plain with limestone plateaus, rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges traversing the island from north to south.

Cebu, with its deep blue seas, its crisp white beaches and its coconut trees, is the dream destination for many a tourist- perfect for a relaxing holiday, just swimming and lazing around. In the past few years, Cebu has also managed to build up a reputation as a good place for business travellers. Thanks to the efforts of the Philippine Convention and Visitors Corporation, an increasing number of corporate houses are using Cebu not just for incentive tours, but also as conference venues. Whichever way you look at it, it’s a good bet- whether you’re there for business or for fun.

Although Cebu has high mountains reaching over 1,000 m, the island has extremely poor forest cover. Cebu is a complex of three cities and six municipalities with a population of more than a million people comprising a cosmopolitan mix of ethnic Filipinos with Chinese, American and European influences.

There surely is no dearth of places to visit in Cebu. Some of the finest beach resorts like Buyong and Marigondon, Olango, Bantayan, Panagsama Beach and Argao Island not only offer scenic views but here there’s really no shortage of good places to dive, swim and sunbathe!
