(SPOT.ph) It’s now halfway through the summer, boys and girls—have you been making the most of it? We’re sure you’ve had a blast already, but if you’re still raring to go on more adventures, then we suggest you set your sights on the Queen City of the South, Cebu! Not only is this historic place full of religious and cultural significance, it’s also bursting with prime summer destinations that are loved by locals and tourists alike. Here are a few that we definitely think you need to add to your itinerary:

Osmeña Peak
Get your fill of the stunning, panoramic view of the province from the highest point in Cebu! Don’t worry, it’s a relatively easy trail, and even unseasoned hikers won’t have a problem going up.

Pescador Island
Are you a fan of snorkeling? Then look no further than Pescador Island of Moalboal, a popular beach getaway with such a rich marine life, you’ll find yourself diving in the water again and again.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to swim with a butanding, then head on over to Oslob for a spot of whale-shark watching. The gentle giants often grace the coastal waters and it’s a sight you won’t soon forget!

You’ll never run out of thrill-seeking activities at the eco parks of Danao. Wakeboarding, rappelling, spelunking, ATV riding, and even more extreme challenges await.

Camotes Island
Looking for something a little more adventurous? Then hop on over to Camotes Island, where you can explore the caves and dive off the cliffs!

Get away from the noise of the urban jungle by taking a cruise down the tranquil Bojo River. Head on over to the untouched, hidden beaches of Aloguinsan right after to cap off your relaxing stay.

Bantayan Island
A local favorite, Bantayan Island boasts white sandy beaches and clear waters perfect for a summer swim. The chill ambiance makes it a great place to just kick back and enjoy the breeze.

Obong Spring
In this blistering summer heat, nothing sounds better than an invigorating dip in the brisk waters of this cold spring. The idyllic atmosphere and unspoiled, natural beauty of the surrounding areas don't hurt, either. 

Funtastic Island
Believe us, this place lives up to its name. From cliff-to-rock zip-lining, to kayaking, to cliff-diving, to snorkeling—you’ll never run out of adventures here!
