Cebu's Best Beach Resort

Looking for resorts in Cebu?

Its one of the best time to go for beach since its not peak season. Usually prices will drop from 20-50% of the usual price, that's why most travelers will wait for this season. My friend is planning to go home for a short holiday together with his Malay friend and I told him his friend would want to have the best resorts but would not tear the pocket then go for any of these resorts. Like Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort:

Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort is located on tranquil Sumilon Island. The Island remains as one of Cebu's best kept secrets and is found on the southeastern tip of the mainland. It is 125 kilometers from Cebu City and is in close proximity to Dumaguete. The island has an area of 24 hectares and is surrounded by crystal clear waters with varying aquamarine hues. It is the first marine protected area in the Philippines and was made a fish sanctuary in 1974 under the guidance of Siliman University Marine Reserve. During dives, one will find varied marine species and even occasional sightings of black tip sharks. Pristine white sand beaches are situated in different areas in Sumilon.

How to get there?

There are daily flights between Manila and Cebu City. From Cebu City, guests can take a scenic drive through the southern coastal towns of mainland Cebu. The ride offers glimpses of both Filipino urban and rural life, as well as its historical past that help form the local culture. Once outside the city limits, a relaxing trip begins through a tree-canopied highway with breathtaking views of the eastern seashores. The following are towns and places of interest along the way:
