5 Attractions in Cordova: Exploring Mactan’s Little Paradise

Cordova is one of two municipalities in Mactan together with Lapu-Lapu City but is less recognized despite sharing the same scenic coasts and picturesque views.

Those who have explored the island even find it more relaxing due to it being isolated from the mainland by two adjoining rivers which technically makes it a separate island. Although it is just a small speck of island in Mactan, it is still home to many spectacles that are worthy of visiting.

With the ongoing Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, the unique attractions of Cordova, Cebu will become more accessible to many travelers and will soon be flocked by many tourists from different places. Before that happens, stay one step ahead of the crowd and list down these top 5 Cordova attractions that will let you experience the natural beauty of Cordova.

1. 10,000 Roses Cafe

Patches of 10,000 luminescent white roses lighting up the night will surely turn the heads of many. This unique man-made spectacle in Day-as, Cordova is one of the most visited attractions in the island due to the hypnotizing beauty of the glowing roses.

The dim light emanating from the white roses combined with the gentle breeze of the island creates a very calming atmosphere. Additionally, there is a rustic cafe tucked at the corner with a perfect view of the roses and al-fresco dining for those who want to eat while appreciating the view.

Nalusuan, or originally “Kalusuan” – referring to a man’s genitals, was a term coined in jest by fishermen due to the copious amounts of funny-looking sea cucumbers thriving near the island.

The main feature of the island is its long sandbar that serves as a sanctuary to many underwater fauna and other marine life. The water around the island is also teeming with various species of fishes and vibrant corals – the perfect view for snorkeling. The only means of travel to the island is through a boat which is provided by the resort and readily available upon arrival.
