About

Located between the Sulu Sea and the Philippine Sea, Cebu is a beautiful island that stretches 196 kilometres (122 mi) from north to south and 32 kilometres (20 mi) from est to west at its widest point.

This narrow Philippine island has a surprisingly vast terrain that ranges from mountains over 1,000 metres high, excellent for trekking and hiking, to sandy beaches ideal for watersports and coral atolls perfect for scuba diving and freediving.

Never tried either? Become a certified scuba diver or freediver with a PADI or AIDA course, giving you the autonomy to explore subaquatic life anywhere in the world.

Most scuba diving and freediving excursions take place at the northern tip of the island at the Bantayan and Malapascua islands, as well as on the southwest coast at Moalboal.

Animals lovers can come and dive or snorkel with the spectacular whale sharks and see them in their natural habitat. These friendly giants are completely inoffensive and are just as curious about you, as you are about them. You can also get up close and personal to thresher sharks and a lot of other colourful marine life – now how many places can boast all that?!

Take a break from the city’s hustle and bustle with a trek around Mt. Kan-Irag. The Budaan trail attracts locals and tourists alike for its lush nature and emerald waterfalls.

Unlike many tropical Asian islands, Cebu only has 2 seasons, the dry and wet season. The sparsely rainy months are from June to December, whereas the dry period is from January to May. However, the weather can actually vary quite dramatically between the northern and southern coast of the island, with the north experiencing more rainfall and typhoons.

So what are you waiting for?
