CEBU emerged as the 7th Best Island in Asia, according to the recent survey of Travel + Leisure. Two other island’s in the country also made it to the Top 10 list —Boracay Island (9th) and Palawan (2nd), which also ranked second in the Top 15 World’s Best Islands.

Every year the World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure said it asks its readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more.

Readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness and overall value.

Travel + Leisure described the islands of Cebu, Palawan and Boracay as “longtime favorites, thanks to top-notch reef and wreck diving, white-sand beaches, hiking trails with waterfalls, and welcoming locals.” (SunStar Cebu)
