Montemar Beach Club is one of the best family beach trips you could ever experience. Extremely kid-friendly, the Club has a variety of family activities and facilities such as a swimming pool, playground, tree house, Pawikan (baby sea turtle) Hatchery and Conservatory other sports/recreational activities.
However, I think what I loved most about Montemar is the beach. The sand is extremely fine and the crystal clear water remains kind of shallow for quite a distance from the shore. I found this to be perfect for my kid since he enjoyed going far away from the shore and yet I didn’t have to worry about the depths of the sea. 😊
Besides the actual beach in itself, since Montemar also has a Pawikan Hatchery and Conservatory, during season, they can let you set these free for a minimal fee! Definitely worth it and of course, my kid LOVED it! 🐢💛
Overall, the accommodations and food were good, but it really was the experiences at the beach that made it so memorable. 20/10 recommend, especially to those with families!
If you just want to relax and unwind, Mactan Island has a number of beaches. While many tourists book it out of the airport and head straight to the beaches of Cebu, Philippines, the ones who slow down to look around Mactan are the real winners.
Tre Cime di Lavarado is an excellent destination for the Star Wars fan-slash-alpinist. Featured in Solo: A Star Wars Story, these three distinctive tooth-like peaks are warmer in reality than in film. We can't say the same when you get to the top, though!
