Mactan, Cebu — Join this family-friendly island adventure combo where you get to see the vibrant underwater world of marine sanctuaries off Mactan, Cebu and the beautiful sandbar of an island near Bohol. If you fancy spending a day under the sun and have fun in the sand and sea, this tour is perfect for you.
Your adventure begins as you are picked up in the morning from your accommodation in Cebu to go to Mactan. From the wharf, you will board a motorized boat to take you to Hilutungan Island Marine Sanctuary, followed by a trip to either Pandanon or Nalusuan islands. Either of the two destinations would be a good choice, it only depends on your preference.
Hilutungan is a protected area south of Mactan. This marine sanctuary serves as a home to a number of varieties of fish. Expect to see clownfish, damselfish, batfish, and parrotfish, among many others, when snorkeling in the area.
You can have more under-the-sea adventure when you choose to go to Nalusuan Island. The crystal clear waters let you see the island's rich marine life as soon as your boat docks on the shore. This beach resort and marine sanctuary offers more than snorkeling and swimming, as you can go kayaking and parasailing for a fee, too.
If you just want to relax after exploring Hilutungan, you can choose to go to Pandanon Island instead of Nalusuan. It has white sand beaches perfect for just lounging around. There is a white chapel and some Roman-inspired columns that would make for a good background for your photos. Head to the sandbar and strike a pose for selfie and Instagram-worthy pictures. You can also relax on the white sand to soak up the sun.
