Beach Bumming

Cebu is a province known for its captivating beaches. Bantayan island is our personal favorite, but most of the municipalities have secret beaches of their own. Some of the other popular beach destinations are Moalboal, Mactan Island, Sumilon Island, and Malapascua Island.

Beach bumming is a great experience during the summer! If possible, we suggest that you bring 2-3 friends to help make it a fun group experience. No matter what you do, make sure you’re prepared to have a great day under the sun.

Historical Tour

While others find historical tours to be a bit of a tourist attraction, one historical tour will give you more information on Cebu than any brochure or television documentary. That’s why we suggest you take a historical tour when you travel manila to cebu.

When exploring Cebu’s capital city, start from the downtown area. From there, you can walk to other historical landmarks such as the cathedral church, Magellan’s Cross, Plaza Independencia, and Museo Sugbu.

In fact, rent a car or hop on a bus to take a road trip to North of South Cebu. You’ll discover a lot of historical places and natural wonders along the way.


You can find a diverse range of cultural dishes from Cebu. Eateries and restaurants offer different dishes from European, Asian, to American. But of course, you have to try out the local food. For instance, Cebu is known for their puso (hanging rice) and Lechon (roasted pig), and there’s no reason why you should leave the island without trying them. There are some other local treats you should try including dried mangoes, siomai, and other forms of seafood!


To conclude, you need to learn how travel manila to cebu to see what the Philippines has to offer. Not only does this island have high-quality food, great tourist attractions, and a wonderful history behind it, but its an inexpensive, yet safe way to travel. We cannot stress it enough; once you have fun at Cebu, you won’t want to vacation anywhere else!
