Why Mactan is the perfect choice for property investment

Mactan Island has been endowed with a unique island lifestyle that serves as a driving force to be one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country today.

Its rich history, picturesque landmarks, beautiful beaches, as well as the warm friendly-smiles of the people are buoyed by continuous world-class developments that made the island a booming place to live, work, play, and learn in Central Visayas.

Construction at the 28.8-hectare The Mactan Newtown is in full-swing. Expect the pulsating vibe of Live-Work-Play-Learn by the beach township lifestyle in Mactan.

Moreover, here are the following reasons why people choose Mactan Island as the perfect choice to settle or even invest in Cebu.

  1. Mactan Island is Cebu’s resort island with close proximity to the Mactan Cebu International Airport. As home of several first-class resorts and hotels, Mactan Island is a tourist-friendly destination that offers easy access to various historical spots in Cebu such as the famous Mactan Shrine and Lapu-Lapu Shrine. It is also surrounded by fine sand beaches and fresh mangroves, producing a rustic and sunny island ambiance.
  2. Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan Island is the country’s fastest growing, highly urbanized city today. Lapu-Lapu City is a very strategic location that boasts with different world-class developments. The city also offers picturesque beaches that surround the island. The Marcelo Fernan Bridge, a known landmark in Mactan, is also within reach providing ready access to top commercial hubs on the main island of Cebu. It is also for this reason that the fastest growing highly-urbanized city is where Megaworld, the country’s leading real estate developer, brings its pioneering LIVE-WORK-PLAY-LEARN lifestyle township formula to develop The Mactan Newtown, which is a 28.8-hectare township with a beach.
  3. Prices for residential condominiums are expected to jump due to massive development projects in the island. Now is the time to invest in Mactan. Urban development has led the growth of tourism, export-oriented manufacturing companies, and BPO offices in Cebu. This fueled the expected rise in the value of residential condominiums in the next three to five years by 15 to 20 percent. This growth reflects the fast-paced economic development that is happening in Lapu-Lapu City.
  4. No congestion; population density is way lower than Cebu and Mandaue cities. According to 2010 census of the National Statistic Office, Cebu has the highest population in Central Visayas region with 2,377,588. But among the three highly-urbanized cities, Lapu-Lapu City has less density compared to Cebu and Mandaue cities. Thus, Lapu-Lapu City is still the most admirable location to live in the province.
  5. Major developers like Megaworld are already poised to transform Mactan Island into Cebu’s next lifestyle and business hubs. Megaworld boosts the island’s transformation by introducing The Mactan Newtown as the country’s first township development by the beach. This 28.8-hectare township combines top-grade office sites, first-class commercial strips, upscale hotels and a reputable academic institution in one premier beach setting. The township also features a cyberpark, which is home to several office and business process and outsourcing (BPO) buildings. Soon to rise in the township are five hotels and an exclusive beach club, as well as sports and leisure facilities.

LADY CYCLISTS HIT THE ROADS AND SLOPES OF CEBU.

Cycling has been a growing sport and hobby for many years but it’s popularity has erupted since the Covid pandemic.  People biking to work and for recreation is an everyday sight in Cebu.  More and more are joining the ride.  Many are quite serious about cycling.  I know three ladies who are among those who’ve gone long distances across Cebu.

How did you get into serious cycling?  What was your motivation?

Blinky de Leon.  Event Host, Product Endorser & Influencer

“ I’ve been into cycling since I was a kid. A little backstory, I was around 10 years old when my dad surprised me with my first custom-made mountain bike. I still keep it until now, in fact I had it refurbished. It’s the most sentimental thing I ever received since it was his way/gesture to catch up with me after not seeing each other for almost 6 yrs. My dad is based in Germany and he also loves cycling and makes his own bamboo bike.”

 

“Just a year ago though, my friend Gazini randomly, out of nowhere, picked me up from home to bike with her to the South of Cebu. I felt really excited and motivated to get back on track because it’s very nostalgic and brings back so many great memories. And since then, the rest was history. We’ve been joining different groups, tried different routes and conquered different heights. I’ve met so many cyclists with very inspiring stories in the bike community who kept me feeling motivated too. I also look forward to the sights and the adventure that comes along with it.”

 

Yumz Mariot. Branding & Marketing Consultant

“I used to bike along with rock and wall climbing. I am lousy with ballgames which is why. Our usual route were Talamban and Mactan but one time, managed to ship gears all the way to Dumaguete for a quick ride to Valencia, the next town located at a higher elevation. Those were days when I did it for fun and what bike I was using did not matter.”

“Fast forward to 2021, a year after the pandemic lockdown began, I realized I have been lazy to do any fitness routine. Too caught up on juggling between house chores and Work from Home deliverables (I work as a Branding and Marketing Consultant), I started to feel my body needs to move as much as my brain does. A hysical fitness routine is as important as what I eat, or what I read or watch. So I decided to invest on a decent MTB, just very recently and got myself a much necessary restart. What motivates me even more is the area where I currently reside at. It is vast, fresh, green and safe for solo bikers like me.”

 

Prime Sarino. Digital Media Creative

“I started biking as a young teenager and I got the idea to start it as an adult hobby 3 years ago. I was already into running and I thought it would be great to venture into another outdoor activity to keep me occupied after work hours and weekends. I was set to travel for a year so I had to put aside the idea first but came pandemic. We were all forced to stay put and everything was put on hold. Cycling became my diversion. My cyclists friends invited me to quick and short rides. I enjoyed my first 50km ride and the sceneries and routes most of all. It also helped channel a positive mindset during the hard hit season of the pandemic. Not to mention it’s also another way to stay fit when we were forced into inactivity during the quarantine.”

Next in Part 2, we ask the ladies about their cycling experiences and memorable moments…
