Calm, protected area good for swimming. Man-made/planted forest near the entrance and before you get to the beach. Fresh water pool was drained dry during our visit, a semi open air snack/sundries/souvenir shop is located next to the beach.look out islet can be accessed via a footbridge.

Long stretch of molave trees. The white tree trunks and few leaves make the place a little bit eerie and mysterious. You can see this forest reserve on your way to Salgdoong Beach resort.

I love the place! The wide and white sand shoreline with its deep blue clear sea. How it was developed, and the location of the cottages. You can choose anywhere to stay within the beach. Anywhere is good. Only you need to have a private vehicle to go there.

We only passed through here on the way to Salagdoong Beach Resort. The trees of the forest transforms the road into sort of a tunnel. Our group stopped by the road to take pictures there. :)

Before we can reach the more popular Salagdoong Beach Resort, we had to pass thru a forest forming tree canopies along the road. The tree tunnel is part of the Salagdoong Forest Reserve, a reforestation project of the local government. It was an bonus to our trip towards the beach. It's like going into a tunnel made of trees! :D... More

Don't get your expectations up, however, it was a good stop when going around the island on scooter. There is a restaurant and you can take a swim. No other reason to come here.

Though its beach has been raped, I noticed that the forest is thicker. I don't know if the forest reserve includes the part where there seems to be construction of a new building; that part looks ghastly.

I loved the canopy of trees and the good view of the sea and beach. The resto at the Agripino Resort complex however had poor service and equally poor quality of food. It took forever to finally serve our food and the wait was not worth it at all. If coming here and intends to go for a swim and... More

Trees are very useful and our friends. We need them. It feels good to have passed this place as we went to the beach side. Very good refreshing feeling thought i am not from the place, the idea of planting trees aligned and even deeper to the inner portion of the property is a great sight and a commendable work....
