Nalusuan Resort is a nice and tranquil beach resort facility in Cebu Strait, Visayas Islands, the Philippines.
The resort has cottages built on top of stilts in addition to other tropical facilities, including fun water sports offers, restaurant, resort bar and more.
Nalusuan Island is one of the islands that compose the Olango Island group where this man-made relaxation establishment is finely built.
The island itself is only about one hectare in total size and situated between two other popular islands (Mactan Island of Cebu) and Bohol Island (a province in the Visayas).
The wide horizon, white sand bar, fish sanctuary and resort facilities are some of the things you can certainly enjoy with in this resort.
Aside from business reasons, Nalusuan Island Resort aims to promote environmental awareness and sustainable way of livelihood.
Nalusuan resort provides its visitors information and facilities to see the beautiful marine life under the sea. By being aware of the sea resources that can support adequately the daily lives of locals, one will think of preserving them rather than trying to reap all at once using destructive (and illegal) methods.
It is a known story that an American swimmer, environmentalist and activist swam the waters unassisted from Mactan Island to Nalusuan to raise environmental awareness.
Paul Vanhoven, on May 18 2009, tried to raise awareness regarding the destruction of the marine eco-system that dynamite fishing has left to the sea corals. Trying to catch fish easily by using dynamite to kill and disorient fishes destroys corals—the home and breeding areas of most marine animals.
So far, through the efforts of Paul, local environmentalists and Nalusuan Resort to promote sustainable livelihood and development in the area has been successful.
Now, for you to enjoy this marine sanctuary resort, Nalusuan resort offers various activities.
These recreational and adventure activities can be arranged with the resort as you arrive and choose your desired activity. I’m afraid these recreational activities are not included as you book to this establishment.
