3 Days in Cebu: Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, January 2015
Day 1: Cebu City Sights
Before Cebu's beautiful beaches draw you in for the remainder of your tip, take a day to tour historic Cebu City. Learn about the Philippine’s Spanish legacy with a visit to Fort San Pedro and Magellan's Cross. Also stop by the Basilica del Santo Niño, one of the oldest churches in the country. After lunch, ascend to Tops Lookout for 360-degree views of the city.
Day 2: Fun in the Sun
Now that you've seen the sights, you deserve some rest and relaxation on the beach, and Cebu's beaches are right up there with the best in the world. Try Malapascua for powdery white sand, gentle waters and fresh seafood. Bantayan's beach has been nicknamed Sugar Beach for it's fine white sand. For smaller, secluded beaches, waterfalls and natural pools, head to the Camotes Islands. If you simply can't decide, you can always charter a boat for some island hopping.
Day 3: An Underwater World
The Philippines ranks as one of the best destinations for scuba diving in the world, so strap on your fins and spend a day exploring the reefs, ship wrecks and vertical walls surrounding Cebu. Malapascua Island's dive sites offer thresher shark sightings, while Moalboal has a vertical wall and an underwater plateau, both known for shark and large fish sightings.
