Shangri-la pier [Watery and Outdoor Wednesday]



View of Mactan Shangri-la's pier from Cowrie Cove, the hotel's al fresco seafood restaurant by the beach.  Boats for island-hopping or scuba diving are available at the hotel but the rates were outrageous compared to rental fees at the nearby Hilton pier.

Shangri-La Mactan is one of the most beautiful hotel in the Southern Philippines, the food is superb!

Their boat looks better, and more stable, than regular bangkas at least. :)

Hi Luna, this place is beautiful. I've been to this place in the 90's and I bet it's more beautiful now than before. Thanks for sharing and the visit too.

The rental rates at this pier may be high, but it is a great place for enjoying the view.

I don't think I'd been to this area. But I know that beaches there are crystal clear as we did Clinic for YCAP in one of the islands there.

Lovely serenity which reminds me of home, home, home (i feel homesick).
