Cordova

Cordova

Cordova is a municipality in Cebu Province, situated along the southern coast of Mactan Island. It is connected to the main island via three bridges. It is also very close to Mactan International Airport, as well as the internationally renowned beaches in Lapu-Lapu City.

Tourism is a fast-developing industry for this town, which currently has around 10 resorts to date. Among these are Villa Asela Garden Resort, Tugbungan Village Garden Resort, and Cordova Reef Village Resort. Its coastal location lends the town some fantastic beaches, making it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and water sports.

Its location also contributes to a number of its industries, such as fishing, stone extracting, shell gleaning, seaweed farming and eco-tourism.

Mangrove areas are one of Cordova’s most popular eco-tourism ventures. Mangroves are trees that need to grow by a body of water, with roots that look stilt-like on top of the water. These root systems help stabilize the coastline, as well as provide habitats for several fish and other organisms.

Organisms that live in the mangroves of Cordova include an eel known as bakasi, as well as shells like sa-ang, bongkawil, torong-torong, aninikad, and the sea urchins.

Great places to visit for mangrove eco-tours are Day-as Boardwalk and Marine Park, Gilutongan Marine Sanctuary, Nalusuan Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary, and Poblacion-Alegria Marine Sanctuary.
