Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan is a small island right off the coast of Cebu City. Mactan Island is also where the Cebu International Airport is, so almost all travellers going to Cebu City will go through Mactan. The island itself is worth a visit, as it is less hectic than Cebu City, and has numerous beach resorts and beautiful diving sites.
Lapu Lapu was the ruler of Mactan in the Philippine archipelago. He is revered to be the first Filipino hero and known to be the first Filipino to resist Spanish colonization. He refused to give tribute to Ferdinand Magellan when he arrived in his island and Lapu-Lapu and his soldiers waged battle with Magellan’s crew in a skirmish known as the Battle of Mactan. Ferdinand Magellan was killed in the battle.
Mactan is the improbable site of one of the defining moments in the Philippines’ history. It was here on 27 April 1521 that Ferdinand Magellan was fatally wounded at the hands of Chief Lapu-Lapu. The event is commemorated at the Mactan Shrine on a stone plinth bearing the date that Magellan was felled.
Mactan island has some of the best scuba diving sites in the Philippines. It also has a number of inexpensive dive shops where you can get SCUBA certified and go on a number of dives. Most sites use the PADI course, although some teach RAID, SSI, or NAUI courses.
