Lapu-Lapu

Lapu-Lapu

Occupying most of Mactan Island in Cebu, Lapu-Lapu City is home to some of the province’s best resorts and diving spots.

Arguably the country’s best resort, the Shangri-La Mactan’s Resort and Spa can be found here in Lapu-Lapu City. Popularly known as one of the best resorts in Asia, the resort is a five-star accommodation, featuring its own beach and marine sanctuary. The sanctuary, in particular, is considered to be the best diving spot in the city and is full of all kinds of marine life, from various schools of fish to different kinds of coral.

Lapu-Lapu City is also home to Cebu’s handmade guitars, which are famous for being durable, affordable, and of good quality. Make sure to pick one up here, if you’re musically inclined. You can even have them personalized to your liking.

Before you leave Mactan Island, drop by the Lapu-Lapu Shrine. The monument commemorates the first national hero of the Philippines, Lapu-Lapu, who defeated Ferdinand Magellan’s forces in 1521.
