This is an excellent beach and you can camp in the trees. There is nobody there and you can truly find paradise. The small town has friendly gift shops and restaurants. There is a boat from General Santos so it is easy to get to.

Ok, first of all, it is NOT boracay of the south. Boracay sand is better and there are more things to do in Boracay and more resort choices. However, the long stretch of beach is worth going to if you're near here. Though if you...More
