HARUHAY DREAM RESORT
Haruhay Resort was first started in 1986 with a little bungalow building on a hectare property. This was first built for friends and relatives who want to enjoy the surreal environment.
Now, the resort has been expanded and continues to swell with more bungalows and rooms for its guests.
Haruhay is not only entertaining and serving its visitors who come but also offers interesting tours to various places and sites in the province of Cebu.
Okay, let’s take a deeper look at its…
FUN & INTERESTING ACTIVITIES
I guess this is the only place I know of so far that offers the most varied activities among the resorts. Here are the activities…
Island hopping, diving, snorkeling
You obviously know this by now that the beaches, islands, the sea and the underwater world of Cebu is fantastic and great for exploration via island hopping, diving, snorkeling and similar activities. Just inquire from the resort and expect the best experience you can have.
Visit Olango Island
Haruhay offers this activity which is popular among natural world conservationists, lovers of nature and some curious individuals. Olango Island is a conservation area and sanctuary of migratory birds. This is under the protection of the government--not only to protect its beauty but also the natural purpose of marine life in this area.
Fun Cebu Tours
The management offers sightseeing tours in Cebu City for reasonable rates for a certain number of guests only.
The most popular places would be the Fort San Pedro and Magellan’s Cross. The Fort is a historic structure being that it is built during the Spanish occupation in the 16th century as bastion against invaders of Cebu. You can still see the fort intact and the canons still lying in wait to be fired up (not anymore, obviously)!
Magellan’s Cross is a special place where the explorer Ferdinand Magellan thought to have erected the first Christian cross on this island. Now, it has become a tourist spot and people come to pray and light their candles and hope for more blessing and miracles.
The Tops is another place where Haruhay would proudly bring you to. Located on top of a mountain, you’ll have a nice panoramic view of Cebu City and the surrounding areas and sea.
