Tourist Attractions North of Cebu: Things You Must Experience in Tuburan

Marmol Cliff (Marble Cliff) is made up of two big rock formations that line the passageway of a river. It is shallow during sunny days, but when it rain, the water rises up to 20 feet, so you must be careful when treading here.

It’s called marmol (“marble”) as the stones are shiny and smooth, much like marble stones. You can see it sparkle when the rays of the sun hit the stone.

Lantawan Lookout


The Lantawan Lookout used to be a lighthouse, so if you are looking for a piece from the past, this is it. The lighthouse was built to protect the land from marauders and other seafaring invaders. Sadly, it stands now half of its size when it was built.
