"Mactan Island - Cebu's Beachside Resorts" Mactan Island by vincentf

Mactan Island Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 98 photos

Mactan Island lies just east of Cebu City via two cross channel bridges. All the beachside resorts lie along Mactan Island. It also houses the Mactan-Cebu International Airport with direct flights from several Asian cities including Hong Kong.

Public transport in this area comes in a wide variety of choices. One of them is the motorized tricycle as shown here. The fare is around P4 per person.

This island is normally the jumping point for snorkelling/diving tours to the islands off of Mactan Island. You normally travel to these islands by these outrigger boats. This photo was taken upon returning from a full day of snorkelling. The outrigger encountered low tide, thus we had to be transferred on to a small boat to reach the pier.

    P4/person for the jeepney is the minimum charge. It varies according to the distance. I'm glad you like place! I told u Ayala has a nice Exchange Rate!
