In line with this vision, Pier 88 is not merely a port; it is a mixed-use development that also features a mall, leisure spaces, and restaurants, creating more job opportunities for Cebuanos.

Tourists visiting the famous islands of Bohol and Camotes, as well as the historically rich province of Leyte, will now have a more convenient and streamlined entry point. The port’s proximity to popular tourist destinations will facilitate increased tourist arrivals and boost local economies through tourism-related activities.
