Dreaming of a beach holiday in the Philippines
? Escape to Mactan Island for gorgeous sun-baked beach resorts and dazzling Philippine dive sites. With the Mactan-Cebu International Airport also on the island, you’ll be able to get to your hotel from your flight in a jiffy. The gleaming sands on the eastern coast are very relaxing but if you want more, Cebu
is just a short drive away and some of the most beautiful beaches and underwater worlds in the region can be reached by boat. Sound like the piece of paradise you’re longing for? Book your Mactan Island accommodation with us today.
Once you’ve had some time on the beach and sipped your fill of drinks, it’s time to get to know Mactan a little better. Right off the coast await coral reefs teeming with so much colour and marine life, and if you’re lucky, you may encounter giant whale sharks, sea turtles and other fascinating marine life as you explore the waters. Various excursions can wisp you away to islands off the coast but if you only have time for one, head to Malapascua, to the north of Cebu. The pure white sands and untouched reefs here have earned it a reputation as ‘the next Boracay’. Even if you aren’t a diver, you can take lessons, snorkel, or simply explore the beautiful beaches. Dive companies are everywhere on the east coast of Mactan, so getting a selection of trips to pick from isn’t difficult.
For an easy introduction to water sports and the underwater world, try a day at Nalusuan Island Marine Park. Just off the east coast of Mactan, here you can comfortably snorkel with fish of all sizes and colours, jump on a jet ski, or kayak to your heart’s content. The semi-circular reef is part of the Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary, a place that is guaranteed to be a highlight of your holiday.
With so much to see above and below the water’s surface, this is your chance to get up close and personal with natural beauty at its best! Book from our range of Mactan Island hotels today, along with a flight to Cebu
