This orthorectified image shows Cebu Island, south-central Philippines. Located on Cebu Island’s eastern coast is Cebu City, protected by offshore Mactan Island and by the inland Cordillera Central.

It is one of the nation’s largest cities and a bustling port. Its harbour is provided by the sheltered strait between Mactan Island and the coast.

The nation’s oldest settlement, it is also one of its most historic and retains much of the flavour of its long Spanish heritage.
