Highlights of The Visayas

The Visayas are a collection of islands in the centre of the Philippines archipelago. A number of these islands have achieved worldwide fame for their great beaches, such as Boracay, or their natural splendours, such as Bohol. In Cebu, the Visayas have an alternative international airport to Manila and a number of world class resort hotels. A visit to this part of the Philippines is essential for those looking for a combination of perfect beaches, great diving and some wonderful landscapes.
