Camotes Island Beach Resorts

My friends in Camotes Island asked me to visit the tourist spots in their place. Their request automatically received my positive answer because I really wanted to see the sights around the town of San Francisco.

My friends brought me first to the popular beach resorts in their town. San Francisco has plenty of beach resorts but we only visited three of them because our time is limited. My friends brought me to Santiago Bay Resort and the two resorts at Mangodlong Bay.


Santiago Bay Garden and Resorts


Camotes Island - Santiago Bay Garden and Resorts

Santiago Bay Garden and Resorts is big. It is a resort complex that has a big mansion, various rooms for rent, freshwater swimming pool, and a restaurant. Visitors can enjoy playing billiards or stroll in the well landscaped interior of the resort.

Mangodlong Resort


Just ten-minute drive from Santiago Bay is the Mangodlong Bay. Here you can find two resorts that share the name of Mangodlong. Of the two beach resorts, it is the Mangodlong Resort that is less expensive.

Mangodlong Resort is the place to go if you just want to dip to the sea and unwind with friends for few hours. Families can have a picnic inside the resort. What’s unique in Mangodlong Resort is the hut located on the rocky outcrop at the edge of the beach.

Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort


Located just beside Mangodlong Resort is the relatively expensive Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort. Though expensive, I believe that this is the best resort that I had seen in Camotes Island. The place is well landscaped and well maintained. Visitors will surely like the garden that covers the whole resort grounds.

The resort has a big swimming pool. The water is so still in the pool that I thought that it is like glass.

The beach with fine sand is also maintained well.

 That ends my tour of beach resorts in Pacijan Island. The sad thing is that I did not have the chance to take a dip in the sea. It has been a long time since I soaked in the salty waters of the sea. Maybe I will “swim” next time if I got another trip near the sea.

My friend told me that the town government maintains a public beach so that those who don’t have money to enter beach resorts can still enjoy swimming in the sea. Well, I salute the town government for doing this. The leaders of the town didn’t ignore the need of Camotes Island citizens to enjoy the pristine sea of their island.
