It’s just natural that we crave some Vitamin Sea when the temperature rises above average in tropical PH. Cebu, specifically Lapu-lapu City, is a popular destination for a beach retreat as it is home to world-class resorts, welcoming vacationers from around the globe everyday. As much as I want to check-in for a day use or atleast a night at these awesome resorts whenever I crave (which happens to be every weekend, by the way) for a dip in seawater, well, I can’t. Signing in 4 times a month at a resort is a luxury I can’t afford. haha.
For anyone in Cebu or visiting guests who wish to swim and cool off at door fee that is close to your daily Venti Frappuccino bill at Starbucks, this list will surely make you happy. Here’s a directory of affordable beach destinations in Lapu-lapu City.
1.) Mactan Newtown Beach
The pet friendly beach property is one of Mactan’s favorite beach spots.
