MALAPASCUA ISLANDMalapascua Island is famous among locals and international tourists, especially among divers, because it is the only place in the whole world where you can dive with thresher sharks daily. BADIANThe most famous attraction in Badian is Kawasan Falls, a three-tiered cascade that features distinctly turquoise water. MOALBOALMoalboal is best known for its Sardine Run. Imagine swimming amidst millions of sardines in crystal clear waters. If you're lucky, you may even come across sea turtles while snorkeling. SUMILON ISLANDSumilon Island is inarguably one of the most popular tourist spots in Cebu. Sumilon Island's most prominent feature is its immaculate sandbar that changes shape every season. OSMEÑA PEAKStanding at 1,013 meters above sea level, Osmeña Peak is Cebu's highest. The peak is one of several spire-like formations comprising the Mantalongon Mountain Range in Dalaguete. BANTAYAN ISLANDKnown as the "Boracay of the South", Bantayan Island is a stunning off-the-beaten-path alternative. If you want a relaxing vacation by the beach and witness one of the most beautiful sunsets, Bantayan Island won't disappoint you.
