Kinason Beach Resort is located at Midway White Beach, Initao, Misamis Oriental, an hour away from Iligan City. Kinason is one of the three resorts in Midway White Beach along with Minikay and Moonbay.

This faraway gem is a perfect place for family and group gatherings and recreational activities that will indeed make the moments the best out of it. We actually had when we had our reunion last June and one word – AWESOME!

Oh that beach!

The beach offers astounding pristine waters and wide white beach that will let you forget the fiery heat of the sun and enjoy playing around. But oopsie! Please be cautious not to stumble because the seafloor is a bit rocky from afar :).


Bonfire along the seashore


I grew up in Iligan City but settled for now in Cebu City and I did not expect that an hour from my hometown brings a beautiful paradise. Midway White Beach will let you feel like you are on classy white beaches from around the Philippines, like Boracay and even Moalboal of Cebu! Truly perfect for nearby residents who wish to enjoy this nature’s offering!

  1. Perfect for Family Reunions and Gatherings


Family picture!



With the wide beach shoreline and great accommodation, this is an impeccable destination for family reunions and gatherings. We were able to relish the moments when we were here during our family get-together. The resort also offers a prodigious area for activities, games, and bonding!

  1. Stunning Sunset

Taking for granted that the beach itself is stunning, the experience exponentially intensifies with the jaw-dropping lovely sunset. Aahhh, makes me think and brings realizations what a wonderful world it is!

  1. Affordable Rates

With the elegant offering of the beach and the sunset itself compensates an affordable rate! Room rate ranges from Php 1,200 to Php 5,000 depends on the size and capacity. We took the two 24-person dormitory-type room because we were many! Kinason also offers beach cottages, resto, and a multi-purpose hall. There is also an entrance fee of Php 25 per person upon reaching the resort.

  1. Comfortable Accommodations

They also allow pitching tents at the shoreline with Php 100 charge per tent.

  • Awesome! I’ve never been to Iligan before and it’s definitely on my list. The resort is a little too pricey for us though (stingy travelers) but if we travel with at least 10 in the group (very, very rare), I’ll probably consider checking this place out. 😀

    • Can I join to make it 10? Haha Just kidding! We’ll there are still other options that surely need a visit in Iligan City like waterfalls, right?

      • Oh, definitely. When the stars align, we could all travel somewhere (HIBsters). Hahaha. Hopefully that will happen soon! 🙂

  • sooperelmoh88

    Wow! Just knew that you are from Iligan City John! I am actually from Lanao del Sur, and I studied in MSU-IIT for a year. Reading your Kinason Beach blog entry felt so nostalgic, as I was able to visit this place once. You are right when you said that when you are here it will be noteworthy. I still have to check on your other trips, it seems you had a lot. 🙂

  • Indeed, the sunset in Kinason Beach is stunning! It reminds me of humanity’s downfall. It’s beautiful and sublime, leaving you with the pain and pleasure of denouement. Isn’t it weird why we enjoy watching sunsets? Maybe it’s a daily reminder that all of us, someday, would experience the beautiful closing of our theater’s curtains.

  • Wow i was looking for a good place to stay for a week to have an relaxing time before my 2nd semester starts. 🙂

  • We should have an activity for the community for this. An out of time activity and I think this place works.

    Do they have water sports activities like what they have in Blu Sands? Appreciate if you can let me know the rates if they have. Thanks.
