Kagusuan Beach is the most enchanting beach I have ever seen in my entire life. It beats Boracay and Coron by a looooooong shot. You may call it deserted save for myself, kuya Allan (my tour guide) and a couple of fishermen at the far end of the beach tending their nets. It was truly a sight to behold. I... More

We were the only ones in this beach, and we loved every moment of it. The part that makes it so beautiful are the rock formations surrounding the pristine waters and clean shores. Reminds me of some of the secret beaches in Palawan but definitely more private. Fine sand is hidden underneath the washed up corals; hence, it's quite rocky.... More

You don't need Instagram to take nice pictures of this beach. Heaven's got its own palette to color its water. The colors light green, turquoise and blue are so perfectly combined in the ocean. It's just impossible for me to get tired of watching all these. This beach is definitely a hidden gem. After a motorcycle ride and some stairs,... More

When we went there, we were the only people there except for a local fisherman repairing his boat. The beach has several rock formations that make for great photo backgrounds. The sand is white but a bit coarse due to washed up pieces of corals. The water is super clear and with a light blue color. We wanted to stay... More

This place is indeed out of the way. Getting there from the main road that circle the whole island, you might even miss the dilapidated sign. Along the way, you might see overgrown shrubs and forest trees that line both sides of the road. There doesn't seem to be any indication that somebody entered the forest. Once you reach the... More

Kagusuan Beach was supposed to be part of our stop on the island. However, I was told that it has been closed as well as the road that leads to the beach since it has been poorly maintained.

The beach is not a huge, white sand beach, its rather small, with seperate areas hidden between rocks. There are also big rocks in the water, which gives an interesting and beautiful scenery. The watercolor is very clear and very blue. If you already have rented a motorbike and are touring Siquijor, its a ncie stopover for a few hours

If you want a beach all to yourself, with white sand and good snorkelling, this is it. Bring everything you need, as there are no facilities here, which makes it a special place
