Here are some tourist destinations you can visit when you fly directly from Cebu:


Early this month, the boutique airline started flying directly from Cebu to Busuanga, the municipality of Coron, also a popular tourist destination in Palawan.

Sunlight Air said tourists can book a stay at Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort, filled with exquisitely designed villas, relaxing spas and more.

In Coron, tourists can not only enjoy the scenic nature-centric environment but can also immerse in its historical waters where the remains of twelve sunken Japanese war-ships from World War can be found.


Last April 1, the airline also started flying directly from Cebu to Siargao, a world-renowned surfing spot.

Sunlight Air suggested that tourists can visit surfing spots as well as the Maasin Enchanted River, known for its iconic bent coconut tree. This tree fixture in Siargao, however, reached its end in February last year.
