Cebu City - description of the city:

Cebu City is a long rather narrow island, which is sprawled about 225 kilometers from north to the south. Location of this town is on the heart of the Philippine. The western and eastern coasts of the island are separated by a mountain ridge with height of 1000 meters. Around the island are 167 small islands, many of which are islands where people have never been.

The managerial capital of the island is Cebu City. It is also the oldest city of the island. In the city, which is located on the east coast of Cebu, are international airport and seaport. Once the town was the the capital of the Philippines and after the status of capital was moved to Manila, the city continues to maintain its leading role, while remaining a major port ant the main market of the south districts of the country.

Cebu attracts tourists by its rich history and stunning resorts, where are all conditions for recreation. The nature of this tropical island is extremely attractive-white beaches, clear blue water, bright coral reefs with a variety of sea life and wrecks. Once upon a time, off the bank of Cebu, were played out the true naval battles between pirates and merchant ships, and traces of these battles can still be seen at the bottom of the sea.

The resort infrastructure in the island is very developed. There are hotels to suit every taste and purse, a lot of recreation spa-centers, casinos, restaurants-cafes, golf courses and tennis courts. Naturally, the famous water sports in the district are diving, windsurfing, scuba diving and snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and just walks under the sails. In memory of a great vacation on the island there can be bough such souvenirs as wicker rattan furniture, ukuleles, jewelry made of semiprecious stones, products made of coconut and various souvenirs made by local craftsmen.
