Beaches in the Philippines - Maribago Bluewater Resort Cebu

Cebu is one of the most developed provinces in the country and the main center of commerce, trade, education and industry in the central and southern parts of the archipelago. It has five-star hotels, casinos, white sand beaches, world-class golf courses, convention centers, and shopping malls.

Today, Cebu is a busy metropolis, recently having been chosen by Asiaweek Magazine as one of the best cities in Asia to live and play in.

Linked to Cebu by a modern bridge is the island of Mactan, the home of Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort, a magnificent facility set on 5 hectares of immaculately groomed and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Set on the shores of a prime white beach, Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort is a place where you can delight in complete relaxation along the lush coastline of Maribago, on Mactan Island, Cebu.

Boracay Island

Boracay is an island of the Philippines located approximately 315 km south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of the island of Panay in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines.

In 1990, it was voted by the BMW Tropical Beach Handbook as one of the best beaches in the world and again in 1996 by British publication TV Quick as the world's number one tropical beach.

Beaches in the Philippines - Boracay

Boracay island topped the list of the World’s Most Popular Beach according to Yahoo! Travel. Boracay's two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bulabog Beach, are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central area.

White Beach faces westward and Bulabog Beach faces eastward. Where beaches in the Philippines are concerned, these are 2 of the best.

White Beach is the main tourism beach. It is about four kilometers long and is lined with resorts, hotels, lodging houses, restaurants, and other tourism-related businesses.

Bulabog Beach, across the island from White Beach, is a secondary tourism beach and Boracay's main windsurfing and kiteboarding area.

Partly because of its wind and weather patterns, tourism in Boracay is at its peak during the Amihan season. During Amihan, the prevailing wind blows from the east.

Boracay's main tourism area, White Beach, is on the western side of the island and is sheltered from the wind. During the Amihan season, the water off White Beach is often glassy-smooth.

On the eastern side of the island, hills on the northern and southern ends of the island channel the Amihan seasonal wind from the east onshore, onto Bulabog Beach in the central part of the island's eastern side. This makes the reef-protected waters one of the ideal beaches in the Philippines for windsurfing and kite boarding.
