Tingo Point is less than 10 minutes by boat from our Scotty's Dive Center Headquarters on Mactan Island. It is 5.6 kilometers (3 nautical miles) from Shangri-la Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, heading 103° on the compass.
Tingo Point is perfect to relax on a bangka boat as it' i's not the most popular island tour site, thus its waters are very clear.
