Looking for a new summer vacation spot? Visit these dazzling swimming pool resorts in Cebu City!

Swimming is a favorite summer pastime among Cebuanos. Because of the country’s climate, many beaches on the island have become highly sought-after tourist attractions for a summer vacation. 

However, some of the best beaches in Cebu are located in far-flung areas that may need hours to get there. Luckily, you can enjoy the dozens of swimming pool resorts in the city. 

These places are much more accessible than public beaches and have more establishments close by for your convenience. You can either stay overnight or avail the day-use option.

Each resort varies in pool size and amenities. Some are spacious enough for large gatherings, while others have special facilities to satisfy the adrenaline junkie in you. 

Another great thing about the swimming pool resorts in the city is that you don’t need a private vehicle to get to them. Several public transportation options are available for locals and tourists alike.
