The Municipal Government’s general development goal is geared towards sustaining the town’s official designation as the Summer Capital of Cebu through the implementation of tourism development plans based on Green Architecture, (wherein economic progress & environmental protection are carefully considered side by side). To this regard, three major tourism-inclined development clusters are being identified, namely, Cluster 1 (Tapon to Obong Cultural Heritage Cluster), Cluster 2 (Casay to Coro Recreation and Industry Cluster), and Cluster 3 (Mantalongon Highlands Ecotourism Cluster).
Tapon to Obong Heritage Cluster
Host to both Obong Spring & to a good number of Spanish era heritage sites in town, the identification, preservation, development, and promotion of the cluster’s places of historical and cultural significance are of utmost concern.
Casay to Coro Recreation and Industry Cluster
Development is geared towards reclaiming Dalaguete Beach Park’s. reputation as one of the leading resort and recreation destinations in the South. Furthermore, other beach destinations and accomodation establishments within the cluster are dynamically promoted and introduced.
Mantalongon Highlands Ecotourism Cluster
In consonance to the cluster’s unique position both as an agricultural hub and as being at the very heart of the town’s Summer Capital of Cebu title, environment-sensitive tourism-inclined development projects are being considered.
