If Cebu is in your travel plans (and it should be) you need to be sure and make your way up to Bantayan Island which is just off the northern coast of the island. I took my first trip to the Philippines in October 2010 and chose Cebu because I'd heard so many great things about the beautiful beaches and how many fun things there are to do.
I wanted to get out and see what the island had to offer so I made my way up to Bantayan Island for a weeks stay at Beach Placid which is only 5 minutes if that from the pier. It is a great place to stay and in an ideal location right on a pristine stretch of white sand. The staff were all very friendly and took care of everything I needed right away and even came by to check on me to see there was anything they could get me.
The cottages are great, the food is fresh and made to order while you wait, the view and beach is stellar so I fully recommend it to anyone. Joan is the owner and she'll take care of everything you need, just a couple of emails is all it took to get me setup and on my way. Two thumbs up from me!
