I Love Cebu | Welcome to CEBU

I happen to realize that my site doesn't tackle yet the very province I born --- Cebu. Well then, allow me to tell you things about Cebu...

Zubu, the original name for Cebu. Cebu was already an important port and crossroad for trade many centuries before the birth of Ferdinand Magellan. In fact, for more than a millennium before his birth, Cebu's sheltered harbor served as a hub for travelers and merchants from exotic and far-off foreign lands. However, when Magellan landed on the island in April 1521, he quickly decided that Cebu's central location and balmy weather made it an ideal base.

While Cebu's first European visitor did not leave with happy memories --- being as he was killed in skirmish with Chieftain Lapu-lapu --- nowadays, things have changed considerably. The island's friendly people and host of attractions, natural man-made, modern and ancient, make Cebu stand out as one of the most popular destinations in the archipelago.

Situated in the protected middle of the Philippine archipelago; Cebu's location ensures a relatively dry climate, making the surrounding seas clear, calm and diveable. Cebu boasts some of the best dive locations and dive resorts. One of the most exciting aspects of diving around Cebu is the many different dive types that can be experienced. Some areas are famous for the thresher sharks, manta rays and the extremely popular gargantuan whale sharks. Dive sites have fantastic coral gardens, sleep overhanging walls and cliffs, all teeming with a myriad of colored reef fish.

An ideal location for nature lovers and adventure seekers, Cebu provides a host of treks through deep green jungles, alongside crystal-clear rivers and foaming waterfalls. Trekking isn't the only way adventure seekers can experience Cebu, one can also go for mountain biking, horseback riding and golfing. 

World-class beach resort with international standard accommodations and amenities dot the nearby island of Mactan. Lovers of sea breeze, white sand and qua sports such as scuba diving, jet skiing, snorkeling, windsurfing, water skiing can make their choices. Lovely beach resorts can also be found at the lovely seaside towns.

So for a wonderful experience just visit my beloved province --- CEBU. Everybody is free to come!!!
