Summer is finally here and we’re all looking for places to spend our vacations. Cebu has numerous resorts and spots that both locals and tourists love to come back to during the season, not just the ones in Mactan!
I’ve rounded up four of the numerous summer destinations we have here in Cebu to help you get started on your itinerary!
Papa Kit’s Marina & Fishing Lagoon – Liloan
Papa Kit’s Marina & Fishing Lagoon is widely known to most Cebuanos as it has been in the business for quite a while. It’s a great destination for families and barkadas who want to experience a day full of fun and adventure.
The activities that you can enjoy in Papa Kit’s are Fishing, Horseback Riding, Zipline, ATV riding, Wall Climbing, Wakeboarding, and my personal favorite, the Jungle Obstacle. Even if you’ve already gone to Papa Kit’s, you’d always want to come back for more! If you’re an adventure seeker, then this one’s for you.
They also offer affordable accommodations for as low as P1,800.00 for day use and P2,500 for an overnight stay.

Huna Huna Cliff Resort – Catmon
Huna Huna Cliff Resort is a hidden gem that has a very different feel from all the resorts that I’ve been to. Although the beach isn’t quite as nice as the sandy beaches of Mactan, the place has a Mediterranean vibe that’s very relaxing. Their staff is very friendly too.
Honestly, there’s not much to do in Huna Huna, but if you want to have a romantic getaway or just take your mind off things and relax, it’s one of the best places to do so. One of the most memorable things that you can do in this resort is to watch the sunrise from the balcony. It is simply divine!
If you’re planning to go to Huna Huna, I suggest you book one of the air conditioned balcony rooms. The rate is only P2,000 for an overnight stay and a lovely breakfast.

Cebu Westown Lagoon – Mandaue City
If you’re the type of person who doesn’t really like long hours of land travel, then Cebu Westown Lagoon might be a good choice for you. It’s a great place for large groups of people, especially for families because this Tiki-themed resort is very kid-friendly.
Cebu Westown Lagoon has two swimming pools, giant and mini water slides, a heated Jacuzzi, and many more! They also have picnic tables that you can use for free, but the resort is always packed, especially during weekends, so it’s best to go there early.

Rancho Cancio – Adlaon
Rancho Cancio, also known as Adlaon Farm, is a private-owned rest house that is ideal for family gatherings, barkada getaways, and team buildings. In Rancho Cancio, you can sing your heart out on the karaoke, swim in the ice cold infinity pool, chat with your friends and family until the wee hours, roam around the huge property, lay on the grass and watch the twinkling stars at night, and witness the sky turn gold as the sun rises.
For you to be able to book an overnight stay in Rancho Cancio, you would have to be a group of at least 10 people and a maximum of 22 people. The rate for an overnight stay is around P600 to P650 per person, and P200 per person for day use. The place is always fully-booked, so it is best to make your reservations ahead of time by contacting the owner.
There you have it! I hope I was able to help you decide where to go this summer. So, what’s the first thing on your summer itinerary?
