Cebu Strait (Tagalog:Kipot ng Cebú; also Bohol Strait) is a strait in the Visayas Region of the central Philippines.


The Cebu Strait connects the western part of the Bohol Sea with the Camotes Sea, and separates the island provinces of Cebu and Bohol.[1]


It is a major sea-lane connecting Cebu City on its northern end with port cities in the south such as Dumaguete City and Cagayan de Oro City.

Mactan Island, on the northern end of the strait, has Mactan International Airport, one of the major airports in the country.
