Other than being a city of increasing sophistication, Cebu still retains much of its provincial warmth and charm, with its colorful past. Apart from Cebu’s numerous man-made landmarks and institutions, it also features many miles of forest greens and ocean blue – a paradise to wildlife and the place for a perfect dive. There’s the 15,393-hectacre Central Cebu National Park, the 696-hectare Sudian National Park, the Kawasan Falls and the Bolok-Bolok Mineral Springs. Nearby Mactan Island boasts of world-class beach resorts. Cebu is certainly a place to take into consideration when it comes to diving trips.
The area can be dives all year round. November to May is considered the high season.
