this place has potential, if they will get a little greener. the cabins are ok and the sand and water are nice. if they would only hire someone to pick up the trash. help is cheap in the PI. if they caught it on the beach, most would not wash into the water. I can't stand swimming with trash floating....

My cousins and I went here just for the sake of visiting Gumasa. When we arrived, we inquired about the entrance fee only for we had limited time there, like 2 hours because our flight back to Manila is on the same day. Unfortunately, we were required to pay for the cottage which costs 500 pesos if we plan to...

The place is nice for family or group gatherings. However, it only has 2 separate toilets for male & female. The shower room has only 3 showers. The grill area is big. The beach front is clean. The big open cottage was expensive and no chairs available but for rent. Is this not a part of facility for customers? Just...

The beach in White Haven is the cleanest. They made sure they clean it almost three times a day. The water is also clean. The cottages are well built and there are available kayaks and boats for rent. The resort was designed for families but they do have rooms for backpackers. This is definitely the best resort in Gumasa.

We recently went here on a day trip from Gensan with the extended family. We booked a cottage as a base. Unfortunately, the designated cooking area (and toilet/shower) was close to 100m away which was inconvenient but not the end of the world. Fortunately, the toilet was reasonably clean and functional. The beach itself is okay, not quite as clean...

Visited resently with the in-laws. The resort is clean and tidy but very basic but not bad considering the cost. The beach is fantasic and the sea clear and clean. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

I have been there most recently with the family and in-laws. I have heard so much about it before, being dubbed as little Boracay. In reality, the little Boracay thing is because of its white, powdery sand. In fairness, the sand is really white and when you walk in the water, you can feel the softness of the sand and...

We stayed at the White Haven Beach Resort, one of three resorts situated on a long stretch of sand in Bgy. Gumasa, Glan, Sarangani province. We rented the airconditioned Sigay room, which can sleep 4 people comfortably on a queen sized bed with a pull out mattress. The room is part of a duplex which has its own bathroom and...

“It's a bit expensive, but if you are with a group, you can share in the cost for a good room. Sigay Room is good. Most open and closed cottages are good for overnight stay, just be prepared to rough it up and it's only 500 per cottage, 50.00/electric appliance and 70.00 entrance fee/person 6 yrs ++. Their contact # is 09208479148. They will ask you to make a bank deposit to reserve a room. Make sure you bring the deposit slip with you when you check in.”
