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

I used accommodation Hale Manna's kayak with the helpful lifeguard Elmer paddling out to its bamboo 'house' structure 80 to 100 metres off shore to snorkel the reef. There was a good variety of fish along with many colourful corals. The white sand beach public area closer to Panagsama may have some rubbish ('trash') but Hale Manna's white sand cove... More

After we went canyoneering, our tour guides told us to meet up at this beach and have a few drinks. It was slightly far from where we were staying but we really wanted to have a drink by the beach. There were a lot of people when we went each getting a spot to view that majestic sunset. We had... More

Sunset view on this beach will let you stay and watch it. The white beach has a large beach area, more space to play, rest, sunbathe or simply swim on its water. There are variety of food establishments around whether cheap, bbq or even sari-sari stores are available.
