The beautiful Maravilla White Beach in Tabuelan

Cebu is known for many things: rich culture, amazing & friendly people, vibrant feasts, irresistible local food, and beautiful attractions. But more than anything else, one thing that usually first comes to mind when Cebu is mentioned — beaches.

While Cebu has so many popular beaches, there’s this newly discovered public white beach that trended on social media lately. This is the Maravilla White Beach in Tabuelan, which offers an escape not just from the city life, but also from the noise and crowds of the usual getaway destinations.

The best part? There’s no entrance fee for now (though there are some resorts or entry points that will charge a small fee).

From the Public Market, ride a motorbike or habal2x going to Maravilla Brgy Hall. Once you’ve arrived at the Barangay Hall, you will see a basketball court behind it. Walk through the eskinita or alley for about 3-5 minutes until you reach to the beach.
