Top 10 Beaches in Cebu Philippines:

Be it whether you are a beach lover, or someone who likes to chill-out in the wonderful and quiet atmosphere, Cebu in the Philippines should be on your vacation or to-go list. Cebu is a city located in the central part of the Philippines. It’s a great place for the holiday. Although it does not receive the same attention as other parts of the Philippines such as Manila or Boracay. There are many beautiful beaches where you can do lots of activities from the jumping off the waterfalls to the ideal diving trips in the white sand beaches. In the next few paragraphs you will learn about the top 10 beaches in Cebu Philippines.

No 10 – Bounty Beach (Malapascua Island)

Bounty Beach is one of the most impressive beaches in Cebu or even the entire Philippines. It has a beautiful stretch of beautiful white sand on the island of Malapascua in the north of Cebu. The water here is so pure that it has become known among the diving lovers by imposing a spectacular dive among diverse marine life. The palm trees, turquoise tropical warm waters are the basic features of this destination and its ideal beaches.

No 9 – Paradise Beach (Bantayan Island)

This beach in Bantayan Island is a wonderful little spot that everyone should visit. It is located in a quiet and secluded area on the island, and you may be lucky to enjoy the beauty and serenity alone here without any other tourists because it’s relatively unknown yet. Shhh.. don’t tell anyone ^^


No 8 – Somelion Island

This is an amazing island in the south of Cebu, a great place to swim and enjoy the beaches and turquoise waters, and a popular destination for tourists for a day trip from Cebu City. But if you want to spend more time here, there is only 1 resort to choose from. Some rooms are beautiful. The other option is for you to camp here by the beach.


The island is also not far from Oslob, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Cebu, where you can swim with whale sharks there.

No 7 – Santiago Bay (Camotes Islands)

You will be able to swim in between the calm waters and the idyllic shallow.


No 6 – Bakhaw Beach (Camotes Islands)

The beautiful beach of bachaw gives you the opportunity to enjoy the pleasant atmosphere between palm trees and scenic scenery. While there are two small resorts on the beach, tourists usually come here on a day trip especially with the beach near the Bay of Santiago.


No 5 – Tinco Beach (Alcoi)

This s a very small beach in Alcoi in southern Cebu. It is a popular place for locals especially in the summer months, which makes it more crowded than other beaches.

No 1 – Virgin Island (Bantayan Island)

My no. 1 in the list goes to.. Virgin Island in the Bantayan Islands. It is a beautiful tourist destination with just about a 30-minute boat ride from Bantayan. This place is suitable for a day trip.
