5 Best Beaches in Cebu

The list below is not a definitive list, as there’s so many amazing places this island has to offer. For now here are 5 beaches you should check out. But be assured that we will update this post from time to time and add more beaches to visit here:

1. Logon Beach in Malapascua

Logon Beach is just 80km going north of Cebu. It stands at Malapascua, one of the best spots in the province where you will forget how tired you are travelling just to get to the place. If you’re coming from Cebu City, expect to travel for about 3 hours to reach this beautiful paradise. For only 250-300 pesos transportation cost, you are going to have a wonderful beach experience in the province of Cebu.

2. Lambug Beach in Badian

The sand in Lambug Beach can’t seem to get any whiter. In order to reach this place, you will need to travel about 100 km southwest of Cebu on a tricycle or ‘habal-habal’ from Badian. It will only cost you less than 200 pesos to get there. Either you walk on the white sand or swim in the sea water, both activities are enjoyable.

4. Santiago White Beach in Camotes Island

In Cebu, it’s very rare to find a beach that isn’t as white as a shiny pearl. The Santiago White Beach in Camotes will leave you in awe because of its enchanting beauty. The island is surrounded by bushes and rock formations. There are also a lot of resorts where you can stay the night in case you want to witness the sunrise and sunset at the beach.
