Here is a spot that is located outside the city of Cebu just to the North in Compostela. This is a park style resort located along the coast in Compostela. Here is a map of the spot:
Multiple spots within the resort to fish (jetties, beaches, etc.)
Parking for vehicles
You can bring food (grills/tables/chairs available there) and drinks for picnics
Family friendly atmosphere
Separate areas to swim
There can be lots of people from time to time
This is a laid back family and large group oriented resort located along the Compostela coastline. It has three stone and concrete jetties protecting its two rock and sand beaches. You can fish on all three jetties. The sea floor gradually slopes deeper away from the beach, however the reef wall is looked well beyond casting distance. The bottom is rocky and sandy. You can bring food and drinks into this resort, so it makes a great spot to take the family for the day.
Barracuda, Grunters, Emperors, and more. The ones I listed here were what I caught when fishing and what I saw when I did a little snorkelling. There are also some mangroves and a small stream leading to the ocean on the northern side of the resort.
( 8/10 ) This is not a bad place to fish. It is a little bit of a drive from the City through and did not seem to have lots of fish so I give it an 8.
Fish Responsibly – Catch and Release and clean up after yourself
Bring sun protection because there is little shade in the spots where you fish
Be aware of the swimmer/snorkelers
Bring lures and bait
I Visited this place with some friends, family and co-workers and was able to bring along some fishing gear. Hooked this nice little barracuda after about five minutes of fishing. Try to catch the high tide as it goes out to catch barracuda like this and other species.
