This place you can really call authentic: it feels like it's the only resort on the island, the cottages are made of bamboo and wood and located on the beach, horses roam free and the beach is cleaned every day using a cart pulled by a Carabo. The staff are very friendly, we also enjoyed the plentiful meals which were...

Had a wonderful experience recently staying and diving in Ticao with my two young adult children.

There is not a lot going on here. You arrive by boat. There are 8 basic but comfortable beach cabanas, a bar / restaurant and a dive shop. There is no TV, no landline phone, intermittent mobile signal and unreliable wi-fi. But you're not coming here for the wifi! As a place to relax it's great: it's in a peaceful...

We booked the beach cabana at the Ticao Island Resort from March 7 to 10, 2016. It was a smooth 75- minute drive from Legazpi City to Donsol, where we were dropped off at Miraya restaurant to wait for our boat to Ticao Island. Food and cold drinks are available at the restaurant. There are also toilet and shower facilities....
