Cordova is a small tourist destination blessed with incredible natural beauty and exciting watersports. The town sits on the southeast coast of Mactan Island surrounded by beautiful beaches, mangrove forests and wetlands. Cordova is also just a short drive from the historic and entertainment attractions of Cebu City.
When visiting this paradise getaway, stay at one of the many family-friendly and waterfront beach resorts. Enjoy the comforts of upscale hotels with amenities such as bars, restaurants, spas and seawater pools. Arrange island-hopping, scuba-diving and snorkeling excursions to pristine Filipino islands, including Bantayan Island and Malapascua Island.
Dedicate some time to appreciate the 247 acres (100 hectares) of untouched mangrove forest that drapes over much of the town. The Day-as Boardwalk and Marine Park is a great place to get up-close views of this. Watch fishermen bring in their catch on traditional outrigger boats at Cordova Pier.
Cordova also incorporates the Gilutongan Marine Sanctuary and Nalusuan Marine Sanctuary, both situated on Olonga Reef. Marvel at perfectly preserved coral reef and spot multicolored marine life while snorkeling in the sanctuaries’ tranquil waters.
Another interesting place to visit is the Gaisano Grand Mall of Mactan, which has a variety of retail outlets and fast-food restaurants. Dine on plates of fresh seafood at a floating restaurant and browse the food stalls at Takan Public Market Park. Go to Magellan’s Marker and Lapu-Lapu Monument in nearby Lapu-Lapu City. These landmarks commemorate Lapu-Lapu, the 16th-century ruler of Mactan Island, and the death of Portuguese explore Ferdinand Magellan.
Cordova is about 8 miles (13 kilometers) south from Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the main transport hub for Cebu Island. Public buses travel between the town and airport and most resorts provide a shuttle service.
Extend your Cordova vacation and visit Cebu City, the capital of Cebu Island. Here you can learn about the island’s Spanish colonial history at the Minor Basilica of the Holy Child (Basilica Minore del Santo Niño) and Fort San Pedro. Enjoy sweeping views at Tops Lookout and a thrilling roller coaster and sky walk at the Sky Experience Adventure.
