@ Julie,

I am sure you mean Mactan beach....

1) Mactan is on the same island as cebu airport. It is filled with resorts.

2) ay of the resorts are excellent, most are good

3) The beach is ok - and advisable only if you are a resident who does not have sufficient time (or does not wish to spend the effort) to get away from Cebu. The water is not so clean - as compared to te marine sanctuaries closeby. (but then, if it is so close to a city, that is obvious)

4) I would not recommend it for a tourist, as there are better beaches

5) My advice - if you have 2 days, take a bangka to a place like Nalasuan sanctuary and stay at the resorts there. OR

go to one of the resorts an hour south or noth or west of cebu city


take a fast ferry to Bohol (2 hours) - it is far better.
