15 Epic Things to Do in Cebu: Travel Guide & Itinerary

Welcome to my ultimate Cebu Island travel guide featuring 15 epic things to do and an awesome adventure itinerary for your next visit.

Spanning 4,468 sq km (1,725 sq mi) of jungle, mountains, and reef-lined shores, Cebu Island is a leading tourism destination in the Philippines. From hiking to the majestic Kawasan Falls to swimming with the Moalboal’s renowned sardine run, and experiencing the warmth of Cebuano culture, there is so much to do and see.

Over the past few years, I’ve made several trips to the Central Visayas. And, if I had to pick, Cebu Island would have to be my favorite island in the Philippines!

In this travel guide, I’ll reveal the best things to do in Cebu, as well as 2 practical itineraries you can follow to help you plan your trip.

15 Best Things to Do on Cebu Island

I recommend that all first-time visitors to Cebu visit Moalboal to snorkel with the sardine run, do the amazing Kawasan canyoning trip, and hike to the top of Osmeña Peak (the highest point on the island).

Below are my top 3 recommended experiences you can book right now. Read on for the full list.

  • Oslob Whale Sharks & Kawasan Falls Canyoneering - a combined trip from Cebu that includes an early morning swim with the whale sharks in Oslob (more info below) followed by the epic Kawasan Falls canyoneering experience.
  • Pescador Island, Sardines, & Canyoneering - a visit to Moalboal is a must to swim with turtles, & sardines. This trip combines a visit to Moalboal, Pescador Island, & Kawasan Canyoneering
  • Bonus: Bohol Day Tour - see the waterfalls, Chocolate Hills, and tarsiers of neighboring Bohol in a single day with this highly-rated day trip.

1. The Epic Kawasan Falls Canyoneering Trip

Suppose you are up for an epic adventure through one of the most beautiful canyons in Asia. In that case, you won't want to miss the famous Kawasan canyoneering trip through the jungles of Badian near Kawasan Falls.

Experienced guides will take you through several waterfall slides and jungle cliff jumps. The highest cliff jump is 13 meters. However, all jumps are optional.

This activity is one of the most booked tours on the island– and for good reason. I enjoyed this unique activity that I did it twice on my visits to Cebu Island!

If you're staying near or in Moalboal, then you'll be able to book a tour online for under $50 and it includes hotel pickup which is really convenient.

2. Visit Endless Tropical Waterfalls On Cebu

Cebu is known as the island of blue-water waterfalls. There are literally 1,000 amazing jungle waterfalls in Cebu. Most of these are easily accessible via a motorbike for the independent adventurer.

Some of my favorite waterfalls on Cebu include:

  • Kawasan Falls - Famous for its vibrant turquoise waters and is truly one of the most picturesque waterfalls on Earth. Kawasan is a three-tiered waterfall in Badian, offering opportunities for canyoneering upstream.
  • Aguinid Falls - Located in Samboan, Aguinid is unique for its five levels of waterfalls, each offering a different adventure, from climbing to swimming, suitable for a fun active experience.
  • Inambakan Falls - Known for its stunning 100-foot drop, Inambakan in Ginatilan is a hidden gem with a deep natural pool, perfect for swimming.
  • Montpellier Falls - Offering a peaceful hidden gem, Montpellier is a less frequented waterfall in Alegria, ideal for those looking to escape the crowds.
  • Cambais Falls - Another hidden gem with multiple levels surrounded by lush jungle, Cambais Falls in Alegria boasts beautiful basins and involves a scenic hike to reach.
  • Tumalog Falls - Featuring soft, drizzling waters over a wide area, Tumalog in Oslob is known for its picturesque, fairy-tale ambiance and is close to whale shark departures.

Travel tip: Most of these waterfalls are found near Moalboal and Oslob. Your best bet will be to rent a motorbike in either of these places and explore them on your own. You can pick up a motorbike in most tourist towns on Cebu Island for 350-500 pesos per day.

3. Swim with Turtles in Moalboal

In between hunting down the best waterfalls, make sure to greet the local turtle population in Moalboal. Moalboal is one of the main tourist hubs on Cebu Island and is recommended as one of the best places to stay in Cebu by most travel guides.

Like most of the islands in the Philippines, Cebu has a huge population of sea turtles around its shores. The biggest population of turtles tends to gather and graze just outside Panagsama Beach in Moalboal.

While turtles are definitely not the only thing you'll spot while snorkeling in Moalboal, they're very friendly and there are a lot, so add snorkeling with turtles to your Cebu itinerary!

4. Snorkel With the Moalboal Sardine Run: The Most Unique Thing to do in Cebu

While you've still got your mask and fins on, make sure to swim out a little to check out the world-famous sardine run right in the heart of Moalboal.

These sardines form enormous schools of over one million fish per school. As they swim, they create amazing patterns and turbine into each other.

Conveniently, the best place to find the sardine balls is the same place where the local turtles like to hang out, right off Panagsama Beach.

It's an amazing experience as the sardines block out the sun and form an underwater tunnel around you. Keep an eye out for larger hunting fish that shoot into the sardine ball. It's no wonder that swimming with the sardine balls is often referred to as one of the best things to do on Cebu Island!

5. Swim With Whale Sharks in Oslob

For many, one of the main attractions on Cebu Island is the opportunity to swim with whale sharks in Oslob. There are dozens of local sharks that visit Oslob every morning.

Swimming with the Cebu Island whale sharks is one of the most popular activities that's featured in many Cebu travel guides.

If you're staying in Oslob, then you'll need to walk down to the whale shark area at around 6:30 am; pinned as "Oslob Whale Shark Watching" on Google. Here, you'll get a briefing and line up for your boat where you'll get to swim with the sharks that visit the shore every day.

If you aren't staying in Oslob, then I recommend booking this whale shark tour. This trip includes hotel pickup (bright and early) and return transfers from Moalboal or Cebu.

Note, that there is some controversy surrounding whale shark tourism on Cebu Island. While it is much better now than it was a few years ago, it still feels like a bit of a tourist trap, nothing like swimming with whale sharks in Sumbawa. If you want to hear my take, you can read it at the bottom of this post.

6. Go Scuba Diving

There's a reason why the Philippines is rated as one of the best destinations on earth for scuba diving. The unique underwater world, with its famous, deep reef drop-offs, incredible critters, and diverse marine life makes scuba diving easily one of the best things to do on Cebu.

My favorite place to go diving is in Moalboal. This is the place where I completed my Advanced PADI certification all those years back. I've since gone on to do my Dive Master's and work in the industry in a few different locations.

After all this time, I still consider Moalboal on Cebu Island as one of the best places for diving, especially if you want to see a healthy coral reef and plenty of turtles!

One of my favorite dives in Moalboal is the Pescador Island Dive, which you'll definitely want to check out!

7. Take a Day Trip to Sumilon Island

Sumilon Island is a small sandbar island located on the eastern side of Cebu, close to Oslob.

If it's a tropical island vibe you're feeling, then taking a day trip to neighboring Sumilon Island is one of the most relaxing things to do in Cebu.

The island is perfect for swimming in crystal clear waters, snorkeling in a protected marine sanctuary, and lazing under the trees with the tropical island vibes.

The island is run by the Bluewater Sumilon resort, but you can visit the island on a day trip even if you're not staying here. If you've got a bit of time, then I'd recommend adding an overnight trip to Sumilon Island to your Cebu itinerary!

8. Explore Local Villages By Motorbike

There's no better way to see the real Filipino island life than by taking a motorbike out from the tourist beats.

You can pick up a scooter or motorbike in most Cebu Island tourist hubs for 350-500 pesos per day, which is great value. I recommend getting the more powerful 100cc or above scooters (often called clicks), especially if you have a passenger.

The way to check out some local villages and meet some locals is to head inland into the mountains. While I can't recommend a single place to head to, why not check some out when cruising through Ginatilan or Alegria when chasing the waterfalls, or check out the many white-sand beaches around Moalboal.

Your tourism dollar is often missed by those villagers who need it most. Help them out by having a local Filipino lunch or buying some snacks from local eateries.

9. Jump in a Filipino Tricycle Taxi or Jeepney

Besides having your own motorbike, the best way to get around Cebu is by jumping in a local tricycle taxi or Jeepney.

Tricycles are similar to Tuk-Tuks which you might find in other parts of Asia. The fares are usually very cheap, ranging from 30-250 pesos for the trip, depending on the distance.

Jeepneys are another option if you want to share a ride. They usually operate on a fixed route, and you'll need to ask a local where it's going. Jeepney trips are very cheap, often only 10-20 pesos per trip.

Taking a Jeepney will really make you feel like a local and is a great opportunity to experience the famous Cebu Island hospitality. Though they might be excellent transport options to get around the island, they're also an essential part of the Cebu Island travel experience and should be included any travel guide!

10. Visit Malapascua Island

Malapascua is an awesome little island located in the north of Cebu. This place is famous for diving but is also an adventure hotspot worthy of any Cebu travel guide or itinerary. To get here, you'll need to get a public bus or private transport to the New Maya Port in the north. The Pinay Solo Backpacker has a good guide on how to get here.

If you're a backpacker or looking for an authentic travel experience on Cebu Island, then I highly recommend staying at Villa Sandra. It's an epic sustainable treehouse hostel made from completely recycled materials and was one of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at.

11. Dive With Thresher Sharks

Looking for what to do on Cebu that will get your heart racing? This next activity is one of my personal favorites!

This one is also located on Malapascua (see above). This island is known for scuba diving and its thresher shark dive is world famous! It was only discovered about a decade ago that very rare thresher sharks collect at a particular cleaning station just outside of Malapascua every single day.

These sharks are really amazing and very friendly. They have a unique tail that is longer than their body and uses it to hunt (like a giant whip).

You'll need at least an advanced scuba diving certificate to dive with thresher sharks though, as the dive site sits at around 25-30 meters. Every single dive shop on the island offers thresher shark dives, so do the loop and take your pick.

12. Hike Up to Osmeña Peak

Osmeña Peak is the highest point on Cebu Island at 1,013 meters above sea level.

This spot is a popular place to visit for hikers because of the incredible mountain views it offers. From the top, you'll witness an expansive vista of jagged hills sloping down to the ocean. The viewpoint at Osmena Peak is similar to the Chocolate Hills on Bohol.

If you're interested in adding Osmeña Peak to your Cebu Island travel itinerary, then you should know that this hike isn't as demanding as it first seems. That's because you'll likely take a motorbike (or Habal Habal) nearly all the way to the summit.

From there it's just a 25-minute walk to the peak.

13. Explore Cebu City

Chances are, if you're heading to Cebu you'll pass through Cebu City. This is the capital city and one of the largest in the region.

If you're looking for things to do in Cebu City, check out the historical sites & points of interest below:

  • Cebu Heritage Monument - A visual representation of Cebu's history, showcasing significant events and figures in brass, bronze, and steel, located in the Parian district.
  • 1730 Jesuit House - An 18th-century house hidden within a warehouse in Parian, displaying Filipino and Spanish architectural influences, a hidden gem for history buffs.
  • Taboan Public Market - Famous for its dried seafood, especially Cebuano dried fish and squid, offering a taste of local food culture and unique souvenirs.
  • Fort San Pedro - A 16th-century Spanish fortification in Cebu City, now a historical park with preserved walls, a museum, and gardens, blending history with tranquility.
  • The Yap San Diego Heritage House - One of the Philippines' oldest residential houses, showcasing Chinese-Filipino architecture and antique interiors from the pre-Spanish colonial era.

In all honesty, Cebu City is a little bit crowded for me and not for everyone. In saying that, there are definitely some local spots and historic sites worth visiting, especially since you'll likely be passing through anyway via the airport.

Hotels and accommodation in the city are very cheap, and there are also loads of huge shopping centers making stocking up on supplies easy.

14. Hang Out in Moalboal

Moalboal is an up-and-coming tourist hub and one of the best places to base yourself when visiting Cebu Island.

If you just want to spend some days chilling out and enjoying creature comforts like western restaurants, pubs, and resorts, then spare a few chill days on your Cebu itinerary for Moalboal.

There are some beautiful beaches here and you'll definitely not want to leave!

15. Visit Bohol

Once you've explored all of the best things to do on Cebu, you'll definitely want to check out Bohol! This neighboring island has plenty of things to do and you can experience the best of it in a quick day trip from Cebu.

Like Cebu, Bohol has several waterfalls and a pristine jungle interior to explore. It also has some spectacular reefs and is home to the endangered Tarsiers, which you can visit at the conservation center.

It only takes a short ferry ride to reach Bohol from Cebu City, and it's quite cheap.

Where to Stay on Cebu Island

The best place to stay is in Moalboal as it's close to all of the best things to do and all the epic attractions you'll want to add to your Cebu itinerary. However, if you're planning to travel around the island, then I'd also recommend staying at:

  • Cebu City/Mactan
  • Oslob
  • Malapascua
  • Sumilon Island

Here are my 4 top picks for hostels, resorts, and hotels in Cebu for each budget.

How to Get to Cebu Island

With the Cebu itinerary out of the way, let's get into the travel guide and logistics.

There are two ways to get to Cebu Island, either by flight or by ferry.

By flight

The main airport serving Cebu Island is called Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIAA). Being an international airport, there are several route options making it easy to fly here directly from 21 international destinations or many other major islands in the Philippines.

To find cheap flights, I recommend comparing prices on Skyscanner and CheapOAir in order to always get the cheapest rates.

By Ferry

Those already in the Philippines, have a few options for getting to Cebu Island by ferry or fast craft. However, this is not the most convenient option as the distances are usually pretty far. If you're set on a ferry, check out 2GoOceanjet, and Weesam Express, which operate regular transfers from Dumaguete, Manila, Bohol, Iloilo, Leyte, and Butuan.

I don't have any personal experience with getting to Cebu Island via ferry. But, from what I've read online it's usually quite long and a frustrating process.

Best time to Visit Cebu

The best time to visit Cebu Island depends highly on the Typhoon seasons. Being a tropical island, there are two main seasons in Cebu; Dry and Wet Seasons.

Cebu dry season – December – June
Cebu wet season – June – December (peak typhoon season: July/August)

Most people say that the best time to visit Cebu is between December to February. However, if you want to beat the crowds, then the best time to visit Cebu Island is in the shoulder season, between late March and early June.

During the rainy season, you can expect very wet days.

How to Get Around on Cebu Island

Here is a breakdown of transport options to get around Cebu Island between main hubs.

Cheap local option: Bus

Buses offer the best way to get from Cebu City to tourist spots and hubs like Moalboal, Oslob, or Malapascua. These buses run from Cebu South Bus Terminal. The buses you'll want are called Ceres liners. They are large, comfortable, air-conditioned coach liners with storage underneath for your bags and luggage.

These buses are also quite cheap at around 120 PHP ($5.85 USD) for the 2-hour ride to Moalboal from Cebu. You can also jump on these coaches and buses once you're at the tourist spots to get between each. For example Moalboal to Oslob.

Private transfers: Vans and cars

You'll also find really nice vans and private transport vehicles all over Cebu. The cost for a private transfer from Cebu to Moalboal is roughly 1500 pesos for a one-way trip. If you have trouble finding a driver who wants to do the long trip, I recommend checking 12Go. This way, you can book a private trip online in advance.

Transport Options for Exploring Cebu Island

By far, the best way to get around on Cebu Island is to rent scooters. You’ll find Cebu travel guide blogs recommending scooter rentals for as high as 500 pesos per day. However, I’ve rented bikes multiple times for between 350-500 pesos per day. If you’re planning to stay a while, you’ll get a cheaper price of around 250 pesos if you rent them for a long term (1 week or more).

You’ll find fuel around the island to top up from roadside pit stops. This fuel comes in glass bottles. 150 pesos worth of fuel will last most a day of exploring the island.

Alternative Transport Methods

If you’re not too interested in renting a motorbike, you can also pay for transport via: 

  • Tricycle – a popular mode of private transport in the Philippines that accommodates a few more passengers (2-4) than a motorcycle. You can pay a driver to take you around to different spots and check out the awesome things to do in Cebu.
  • Habal Habal – This refers to a “scooter taxi”, this is a good way to get around cheaply as a single passenger without renting your own.
  • Jeepney - Jeepneys also called Dyipni or simply "jeeps" are colorful buses that many locals use for transport in the Philippines. This is a ride-share with a fixed route, give one a try and mingle with the locals!
  • Van – You’ll find a few resorts, hotels and private transport companies offering van transport. This is the priciest option for getting around but can be worth it if it’s raining or if you’re in a large group.

My Take on Whale Shark Tourism on Cebu Island

After chatting with locals to better understand their perspective, I've found that thousands of people who were once working in unsustainable fishing operations now have the opportunity to work in tourism instead. The tourism machine is now the biggest industry in the region.

This shift, combined with tighter ecological regulations to protect marine life means better protection for the aquatic life of South Cebu.

But what does this mean for the sharks themselves?

To ensure that the giants keep coming back, locals feed them from these small boats. This has caused suspicion that the sharks would adopt unnatural feeding and migration behaviors. However, in the past few years, after extensive research and tagging, researchers have concluded that the younger sharks are still continuing their regular migration. It is only the old sharks that can no longer breed that choose to stay in Oslob. It's also important to note that most of the tagged sharks that have died during the past few years have died in international waters.

The practice has also improved dramatically in quite a short time. This proves that increased awareness with the support of conservation groups is helping make the Cebu Island whale shark swim an increasingly sustainable tourism model.

On the other hand, other practices that I've witnessed in Asia get much less attention from conservation groups and are much worse. Namely, those that chase the sharks with large powerboats for tourists to jump literally on top of them. 

If you're interested in swimming with the whale sharks in Cebu, make sure that you:

  • Don't touch the sharks
  • Keep a respectful distance
  • Don't wear sunscreen (it can be poisonous for them)
  • Dispose of all plastic waste and trash properly
  • Educate other tourists about not touching the sharks and keeping a safe distance

Wrapping up This Cebu Travel Guide

Before we wrap up this comprehensive Cebu travel guide, here are some last points you'll want to know before visiting.

  • Language – Locals on Cebu speak the Cebuano language, which is different to what you’ll hear in Manilla or Palawan. However, most locals also speak Tagalog (Filipino) and up to four other languages, including English!
  • Insurance for travel on Cebu– If you enjoy adventure and outdoor activities when traveling, you’ll probably want adventure insurance that covers things like canyoneering, motorbikes, and hiking. I recommend HeyMondo because they have the widest coverage, the best rates, and a great app for managing claims.
  • Roosters - Cock fighting is a large part of Cebuano culture. Don't be surprised if you see roosters perched on small stands all throughout the island. These guys will wake up you every morning– but it's just part of the Cebu Island travel experience!
  • Filipino bakeries - If you stumble upon a local Filipino bakery (there are loads in Mactan), make sure to ask for recommendations. I personally love the bread and pastries from the Philippines, make sure to try pan de coco.
  • Karaoke - Filipinos love karaoke and that's probably an understatement! No doubt you'll hear karaoke parties nightly wherever you stay on Cebu Island. Locals love it when you join in!
  • Internet on Cebu - Wifi exists on Cebu but is a little hit-and-miss outside of Cebu City and Mactan. The fancier hotels and nice cafes around Moalboal will all offer usable speeds. If you're staying for a while, you can pick up a prepaid SIM card; I recommend Globe for the best 4G coverage or an Airalo eSIM.
  • Locals - Locals in Cebu are extremely friendly and accommodating. Cebuanos will always go out of their way to help you and love it when you genuinely want to learn about their way of life.
