The island of Mactan lies opposite Cebu city, being only separated from Cebu island by a narrow channel. The airport of Cebu is located here. Mactan island is a tourist centre with several higher end hotels on its eastern coast. There are no sandy beaches, except for the artificial ones which the hotels set up for themselves. The sea surrounding Mactan however is beautiful and very photogenic. Despite being a tourist centre, the tourist infrastructure is relatively underdeveloped. There are for instance very few independent travel agencies or tourist restaurants.
