First they charge you 5 Pesos per head for using the road. Than another 50 for enter with the car (i understand that, it's normal in the phils).From the parking area you have to pass through a narrow path and every where you look is waste. Than you arrive at the wide beach which was very dirty (not natural waste),... More

There are some 'rustic' cabanas available for rent for shade, or to have a picnic with the family. The water was super flat which makes the swimming better for small children and non swummets

I recently visited this place last weekend for the 3rd time together with my friends and my boyfriend. As expected we paid 2 entrance fees (barangay fee and beach fee) and parking fee. Only the mere fact that I was with my friends and my boyfriend got me so excited for this trip but not the beach itself (for I... More

The water is so clear, the site is nice for camping and the food is very affordable, fresh and yummy. Best for group camping.

30 pesos to access the beach???? Good grief!! We had to pay 2 tolls. One on the way there for a "beach beautification" where you get no receipt, so I don't even think they are legal. Then you have to pay for beach access!! Best to go by boat if you can

Many of the beaches near the dive centers in Moalboal don't have sand, so we ventured here. There are entry fees to get into the white sand area (20 pesos pp to get to HK Beach Resort, and another 60 pp to go up further). The tricycle ride was 300 pesos round trip for 2 persons from the dive center... More

Stayed here for a few hours. People were friendly. Place is safe. Snorkeling was good (although water was a bit murky because of strong winds + a lot of swimmers). It wasn't overcrowded. You won't have to worry about food either as there are a lot of vendors around. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

There is sand, whereas a lot of places here are rocks and coral up to the shore. A few street food places to eat.

I would rate it as very good as the place is ideal for camping for couple or for the whole family. For a minimal fee of 100pesos per tent (bring your own tent or rent for 500pesos per night) you will enjoy the white sand beach plus star-gazing at night. On a Saturday night a crowd formed overnight and it's... More

Nothing much to see aside from white beach and island hopping tours. Street food is also available. If you are there for day trip then this is a good spot for you however if you will be staying at a resort at basdaku then good luck being bored. I would recommend venturing out at basdiot area as it is where... More
