White Sands

A few weeks ago, I was finally able to visit Cebu White Sands in Maribago in the Island of Mactan.  For those of you who didn’t already know, Cebu White Sands at Maribago Beach was one of the most well-known resorts in Mactan. Before the arrival of high-end and modern resorts like Shangri-la, Plantation Bay, and Imperial Palace Waterpark, Cebu White Sands was one of the hottest destinations in the island. In fact, it was one-third of the super-popular resort trio in the Maribago area (which also consisted of Tambuli and Bluewater.)

Today, fortunately, despite the changing tastes of visitors and the ever-evolving line up of players in the local tourism industry, the resort still attracts a good number of tourists.
