The freshest crabs, lobsters, and fish sourced mainly from local fishers served along the coastline as the sun dips below the horizon and lights up the sky make up the luscious seafood dining experience that is the Coral Seaside Restaurant of Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark in Lapu-Lapu City.
The sea floor sloped down as we made our way from the shallows to the murky depths, ready to take on our first and possibly best diving experience at Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark in Mactan Island.

If you can imagine swimming pools, waterhouse with slides, climbing nets, and giant tipping bucket, jacuzzi, and a swim-up bar built way above ground, then you have an idea what Cebu’s next big attraction SkyWaterpark Cebu will be like.
When you let go, the force of the drop will take you on a spiral spin along the sides of a concave structure before plunging you into the water through a bottom hole in an exhilarating space bowl experience at Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark.

Going up Aguinid Falls was a climb of many thrills: wading in the flow or swimming where the water pools, stepping from rock to rock, climbing alongside that falling sheet of liquid or meeting it head-on, pausing to take a shower.
Water from a fast-flowing mountain spring runs through the Durano Eco Farm and replenishes seven multi-level pools to give visitors the best dip of their lives. The pools come in various sizes and depth: shallow for kids, deep for teens and adults, and one that’s a 12 feet plunge for those who want to dive.
Two specks atop a steel tower hurtle downward, their screams reverberating around the mountain camp that is the Danasan Eco Adventure Park in Danao City. As they near ground, the two friends’ shrieks turn to whoops of triumph and relief at having survived the 130-foot swing. It’s not as if they weren’t warned, though. The name Skydrop alone suggests it would be one, long fall.
