Island Hopping

  • Cebu is known for its enchanting islands and beaches. It’s like you’re seeing islands within an island because Cebu is actually an island province already. To maximize your 2-day vacation, don’t miss out on the beaches that are visited mostly by tourists by doing the island hopping. With this activity, you will get to see how beautiful each place is. Some good islands you will encounter include Hilutungan Looms and Nalusuan Island.

  • Are you a professional diver or just new to this activity? Cebu got something fun for you! Yes, you can experience diving with your 2-day vacation. But before trying out any dive shop in the province, make sure the place is accredited by the Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving for safer adventure. Since those who own a resort in Cebu can build up their own dive shop anytime, not all of them are safe for tourists.

  • What’s a Cebu experience without sightseeing? This activity can always be partnered with others on this list. One good example is while you’re at the beach. Savor the sight of the sea as you walk on the white sand shore. It’s really worth the while to do 2 things at the same time.
