This is more of a side trip or an area you check out on the way to other stops. It provides a scenic ride up to the beach. The drive itself is pretty shady, a nice respite after you've been on a road trip on a motorbike. The trees looked healthy and undergrowth was pretty thick.

This forest reserve is man made. Molave trees are beautifully lined in the road side going to the Salagdoong resort. It gives shade and breeze and aesthetic beauty. I hope its well taken care of but i did see seedlings spa near the resort. Its a joy passing by the Salagdoong Forest Reserve.

Since summertime in the country is at its height, poor trees are so thirsty with water that would come from the rain seeing leaves are dry and yellow and the soil are parched. Maybe, the beauty of the forest will be restored once it's rainy season.

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.
