Attractions in Cebu, Philippines

Cebu might look small in the map, but it is actually bigger than it looks. It sure has several pockets of surprises waiting for its earnest and eager travelers. Small it may appear, but it has several island destinations in its turf known for their pristine beaches, kilometer-long white-sand shores, cold waterfalls, and rich marine lives.

Cebu is the kind of island that can be both: a stylish urban and a rustic rural. The city offers many historical gems and metropolitan kind of excitement. Cebu the city pulsates with life and bustles that thrills party animals and history lovers.

But once you drive outside the metropolis, the rustic, the adventurous Cebu is waiting for you. And here in Cebu, the locals are attractions themselves.
