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.
