My friends and I decided to check this place out right before dusk. We watched the sunset and took a few pictures. The setting was romantic and the sand was beautiful, warm, and white. They also have a few gazebos you can hang out in. Other than that, that's all you get. The area where we were was a kind... More

it is a beach, with sand and a number of cheap eateries catering for locals. Paid parking in the shades. it is a pleasant 5 km bike ride from Moalboal but nothing special. In the absense of cafes or restaurants or fellow travellers I did not spend much time here.

Maybe its silly to complain about some aggressive bloodthirsty flies but just in case you were wondering.... The sand is baby powder soft with some crushed coral. If you're looking for a beautiful beach with no other people head to the part near the Blue Orchid Resort. There was no one else there during the week. I am told there... More

Though the place gets so busy during holidays and/or the weekends, this is somewhere I want to go to every weekend (if time permits). The place is 3-4hours away from Cebu City. Bus rides from the South Bus Terminal would be a challenge during the weekends but they have trips 24hours that would cost 120-150php per person (a/c and non-a/c).... More

There are two places where you have to pay to enter the area. One was 10 pesos each, the other I have forgotten how much. If you are an Aussie or anywhere else where they have good beaches, it is not worth a visit. Nothing much around.

From Moalboal central town you need to travel for 4-5 kilometers, and you need to hire a motorcycle to send you over here but if you are staying in Panagsama area you may hire a motorcycle or rent own your drive your way over here. Please be guided that there's P5.00 of environmental fee before you can enter into the... More

Been here a few times - a public beach so weekends very noisy with lots of people hitting the beach,many with their own sound systems ! Lots of trash & bottles left everywhere after they have finished. Best to go during the week as a lot quieter.Many dogs roam around on the beach so no shortage of dog poo !... More

A good beach to hang out. The sand is just right. You can put up a tent. Easily accessible and has stores some ways from the beach where you can buy food stuffs.

Hard to recommend this one. The beach are itself is awesome but I have a problem with the extorsion toll to drive there. Best to go by boat and avoid the toll. There is no getting by it. They won't give you a receipt for it.

Beautiful view. I love the sand. This is a go to place. You are not a Cebuano if you havent set your foot on its beautiful sand. I just noticed that it is cleaner now compared before like a year to two.
