Beachside Locations
Many swimming pools in Cebu are situated close to or directly by the beach. This proximity allows swimmers to enjoy the best of both worlds – the calm, controlled pool environment and the sea's natural beauty.

Beachside pools often provide stunning ocean views, making for a picturesque swimming experience. They also allow for easy transitioning between ocean swimming and pool lounging, perfect for those who love water in all its forms.

Infinity Pools

Infinity Pools with Panoramic Views
Infinity pools are popular, especially in luxury resorts. These pools are designed to give the illusion of merging with the horizon, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes – be it the ocean, mountains, or Cebu's skyline.

Swimming in an infinity pool is an experience often enhanced by the tranquil and visually stunning setting.

Waterpark Features
Some swimming pools in Cebu are part of larger waterpark complexes featuring slides, wave pools, and interactive water play areas.

These are particularly popular among families with children. They are usually crowded during weekends and holidays!

The waterparks provide a fun and engaging environment where kids and adults can enjoy various water-based activities, making them ideal for a day out or a family holiday.

They also offer karaoke, video games, bars, and more services catering to the needs of larger groups.

Hot Springs & Therapeutic Spas

Eco-Friendly and Natural Pools
Emphasizing sustainability, some pools in Cebu are eco-friendly, utilizing natural filtration systems and avoiding harsh chemicals.

These natural pools blend with the surrounding environment and offer a more organic swimming experience. They are often set amidst lush landscapes, adding to the feeling of swimming in a natural body of water.

You can find these swimming pools outside the city or within the forested mountainsides of Cebu Province.

In Cebu Province, numerous areas boast exceptional swimming pools, each offering unique experiences and facilities.

Here are five areas in Cebu where you can find such pools, along with five specific resort swimming pools and their descriptions...

Unlike Moalboal, Bantayan Island's swimming pools are usually only for relaxation. Divers do not come here as they prefer to swim in the sea and enjoy the extensive white beach areas.

The views from the swimming pools in Oslob is stunning. They have both the sea and mountain views, only nature, without the irritating sights of concrete buildings.

5. Malapascua Island: Known for its beautiful beaches and thresher shark dives, Malapascua offers resort pools ideal for unwinding in a secluded and scenic setting.

5. Kawasan Falls Resort (Badian)
Although not directly on the beach, this resort near the famous Kawasan Falls offers a unique pool experience.

The pool is fed by natural spring water from the nearby waterfalls, providing a refreshing and natural swimming environment amidst the lush Cebu landscape.

Kawasan Falls Resort needed a dedicated website as of my last update. Usually, information and booking for accommodations near Kawasan Falls are available through various travel and hotel booking platforms.

I recommend checking the latest online resources or contacting the resorts for the most accurate and current information.

Each of these swimming pools and their respective resorts in Cebu offers distinct features and amenities, catering to a range of preferences, whether it be luxury, relaxation, family fun, or a connection with nature.

I can provide you with the likely web addresses for the resorts mentioned based on their well-known online presence up to that date.

Please note that these addresses might have changed, and it's always a good idea to verify them through a quick online search or by contacting the resorts directly.
