Why Mactan New Town Beach?

Formerly known as Portofino — Mactan New Town Beach offers convenience if you are looking for a city beach experience. Located in Lapu-Lapu City — approx. 45 mins to 1 hour from Cebu City.

How to get there?

What I suggest, better start in Park Mall Terminal then look for “Maribago” Jeepney route, and fare cost PHP 14.00. From here, drop by in Mactan New Town Terminal. From Mactan New Town Terminal, hire a Habal-habal (Motorcycle) to get to your destination, fare PHP 20.00.
