There is little information available online about budget travel tips on where to go in Cebu for cheap and more affordable Mactan beaches and resort options. Sure Shangrila Mactan, Hilton Resort Mactan, Plantation Bay, Maribago Bluewaters Beach Club, Portofino, Cebu Tambuli Beach Club, Cebu White Sands, Imperial Palace Mactan etc are almost always mentioned in travel blogs, local and some international travel magazines, travel guides and trip advisors for their awesome white sand beaches and great resorts but c’mon most local travelers are on a budget travel. And those Philippine Cebu beach resorts mentioned earlier are on the high-end side and almost always out of reach for the money conscious Cebu bound backpackers and visitors.
So on our way home tonight from another foodtrip laag (story on a separate post ^_^), My good friend Doi posed this question to me “Cille di ba we are planning to have some sort of province-wide road trip that will chronicle what Cebu can offer to tourists and locals from the north to the south, from the east to the west (yep, ganyan kami ka ambiyosa hehehehe) and share them on a series of Cebu travel blog posts, why not we start with Mactan Island (my hometown) and feature first all the available cheap Mactan beach resorts and later on the more expensive resorts (if we can afford them ) and offer honest Cebu beach resorts reviews”.
So that’s our plan, crossing our fingers and hoping we can do it the soonest so all those who are seeking information and tips on cheap beaches and affordable resorts in Mactan Island, Cebu will have another blog to read ^_^
If you are from Cebu or Mactan, please give us your idea on the affordable and cheap beach resorts in Mactan that we should include by leaving a comment below.
And if you are interested, please visit this blog again for updates on this project. Thanks!
