This blog provides information about some of the places you may want to visit the moment you set foot on the island. These places include some of the best white sand beaches in this part of the archipelago. Mactan is already well-known for its notable beaches, but there are a number of other lesser-known-yet-similarly awesome beaches in the island of Cebu. These beaches include Maravilla Beach in Tabuelan, the Hidden Beach and Hermit’s Cove in Aloguinsan and KM 47 in Catmon.
Cebu also has a number of delicacies visitors can try, including the sinfully scrumptious Chicharon from Carcar, Bibingka sa Mandaue, Masi from Liloan, Torta and Sikwate from Argao and the Pintos from Bogo. If you open to some adventure, you can go to the Carcar Public Market to try some of the food items offered in this southern city in Cebu.
