Outdoor Adventures in Cebu that keep your Adrenaline Pumping
No. Unfortunately, Cebu does not have any of those remote deserted, tiny islands where you could get stranded with Angelina Jolie or Piolo Pascual. What Cebu has are spectacularly beautiful, good-size islands and beaches with white sands looking and feeling like refined processed sugar and blue waters where you can go free-diving, snorkeling or scuba diving to marvel at the everyday spectacles happening in the underwater world.
There's MACTAN ISLAND and its many beaches, reachable from the downtown area in 45 -60 minutes. MOALBOAL BEACHES are a couple of hours destination. The trip is worth it though because of their long stretches of almost untouched, immaculately white shorelines. LILOAN BEACHES offer another side of cebu where families can better bond with each other via picnics, barbecue cook-outs, swimming and karaoke-type singing.
Snorkeling around coral reefs of untouched nature with interesting species of small tropical fishes, several kinds of corals, a huge sand-sea-and-sun area to explore are what you'll find at NALUSUAN ISLAND located between sandbars of Bohol Island. Another great marine destination is HILUTUNGAN ISLAND. It's a dive spot fast getting to be known for its amazing fish and marine sanctuary where you can see and fleetingly touch tropical fishes up close and almost personal. Snorkelers and experienced divers have made this one of their favorite islands-paradise.
