RESORTS IN SIQUIJOR: Enjoying the Beach at Coco Grove Beach Resort


On our second day in Siquijor, we spent the whole morning just bumming around the resort. We enjoyed the white sand and the pristine clear waters of the beach at Coco Grove Beach Resort. We had an awesome morning swim while basking under the hot rays of the sun with tropical palm trees all around. Relaxing!


The allure of this beach is its starkness. It’s raw and simple. The sand is fine and white with just a few crushed corals in some areas.


It is isolated from other resorts, so if you're looking for some quiet moments, this is the best place for you. The view is simply stunning! The rock formations on the beach’s far end are truly amazing!


They have a busy dive shop for those who want to dive. You can easily arrange with them a trip to Apo Island or nearby islands and dive spots for a day of diving. But since we don't know how to dive, we settled for the kayak.


Kayaks are free for checked-in guests. We took 2 kayaks. Marvin and Clarice at one kayak and me, doing it solo on another.



This is not my first time to kayak, I had my first kayaking experience in Bulusan Lake few weeks ago, so it wasn't hard for me to navigate it.


We were just enjoying it as we paddled through the length of the resort's shoreline.





This is truly an amazing place to stay! Overall, Coco Grove's 800 meters of white sand beach and crystal clear waters make this resort exceptional.

I also have no experience in diving so I might choose the kayaking as well but would love to try diving din sana.

Wow ang Ganda ng beach! Not much water activities for me coz I have a ruptured eardrum.but I still love the beach.. Boating Lang Puede sa akin and any activity without my head getting wet,... Kaloka! Should try this kayaking soon.... ;)

Matagal ko ng gustong mag-kayak, kakainggit naman. Di naman siguro ganun kahirap matutunan, right? Sana makarating di ako ng Siquijor, a beautiful and mystical island.

Kayaking is one of the many things that I like to do when I'm on a beach and yes, boating as well.

Looks as you guys had so much fun in here. Sana mapuntahan naman ito soon.

Pinoy Adventurista said...

your wrong perception about the island will definitely change if you just visit Siquijor... i'm sure of that... :)

Pinoy Adventurista said...

one thing i could assure you, mas nakakatakot pa sa Manila kaysa sa siquijor... :)

Joanna Asmus said...

Your post made a very inviting place all the more interesting to visit.

My brother who resides with his family in Ireland is currently in Manila. I'll send him a link to your blog, maybe he'll consider a visit with the family.

Lucille said...

Yes! I grow up in this place. In 48 years long I never met an aswang. And patay na ang mangkukulam matagal na.

Lucille said...

Actually there is a free public beach where you can see the 3 km stretch of white beach right at the heart of the town there is also kayak for rent 20 pesos unlimitted hanggang sawa.
