Swimming with the fishes at Shangri-La's Mactan Resort

Summer is almost over and school days are coming soon. Steph told me that she wanted to go swimming before it's June. Luckily, Mama Flor and Papa Noli were in Shangri-La yesterday.  We drove to Mactan early morning to have a quick swim at one of Cebu's most famous resorts.  

We arrived at the resort at around 9 a.m. and we needed to swim quickly since the check out time is at 12 noon. We first headed to the infinity pool near the ocean view building.  After a few minutes, my wife wanted to head down to the beach. So, off we went. After finding a nice place for our things, we then took a dip in the clear, salty water. We just stayed at the chest-deep area and we saw a school of fish pass by. The fishes were not scared of the beach goers. It is so nice of Shangri-La to build a mini marine sanctuary in their resort.  I saw many people getting snorkeling gears to enjoy their swim with the fishes.

Since it was already 10:30 am and the sun was getting hotter, we then decided to head back to the pools.  We ended up in Shangri-La's main pool and capped our swimming in the 7-foot deep area. I really enjoyed our swim.
