A short 2 hour drive from the capital, but definitely not the best beach. Sand is sharp and uncomfortable.

The sand was too grainy and it hurts my feet, but all I can say is that I enjoyed every moment here... More

Our family stayed in the one house (this maybe the model house) in La Playa Laiya Resort Subdivision for P15k a night. The house was new and modern. It has a small pool so everyone enjoyed swimming even in the middle of the night. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3D/2N stay there. It's fully furnished and you can cook! So we... More

Have heard so much about this beach and having seen many great internet beach photos I was really looking forward to actuality...BUT on arrival I have never been so disappointed at any other destination. Drove hours all the way from Manila to get away from the noise and chaos of the city...only to be confronted with a beach drowned out... More

My wife and kids went there twice already two years in a row for our wedding anniversary. The place is easy to find about 2.5 hours from Manila. You have to book in advance. The rooms are clean and neat and the food included in the psckage was delicious. I wish they had some evening activities like a small band... More
