Going somewhere especially mountains and beaches are always a great getaway from the daily rush and congestion of the city. It gives a significant breather that everyone needs. The pleasant sound of the sea breeze, the quiet surrounding and the relaxing vibe that beaches always provide makes it a perfect paradise.
Hidden Beach Resort is no exception with its white fine sand and wide seashore giving you ecstatic vacation you long for. The resort offers native accommodations that provide province-like living worthy for a lovely night.
This resort is located at one of the corners of Aloguinsan, Cebu. Aloguinsan is a 4th municipal income class municipality in the provice of Cebu, Philippines (source Wikipedia). It is located 59.1 km away from Cebu City (source Google Maps) which equates to a 2-hour travel to the hidden kingdom of the province. It is well-known with top tourist spots – Bojo River Cruise and the Hermit’s Cove – and it’s just one of the many affordable accommodations by the beach in this side of Cebu. A lot of people, especially tourists, don’t know that there is a more accessible paradise than Bojo and Hermit’s Cove in the province that provides one rejuvenating getaway.
I’ve been to Hidden Beach Resort twice and I like to go back! There are plenty of reasons why I wanted this resort and here are those:
Accessible to any type of vehicle
The realm of Hidden Beach Resort is more accessible than Bojo River and the vehicle-deadly Hermit’s Cove. Though it is literally hidden, the terrain is flat and more of a grass field. Though there are parts that tend to be rocky yet even a small scooter can reach the resort. There is a street from the Aloguinsan Highway going inside the resort.
On my first visit, we had a mini-bus get inside until the open fields. While on my second, I had my Yamaha Mio I 125 scooter entering the resort. This comes to prove that any type of vehicle can get to the resort.
White Fine Sand
What could beaches offer that I love most is the white fine sand! I love to roll over, lie down, play with the sand and run around. It brings out the jubilant child in me. The seashore, by the way of Hidden Beach Resort, is vast enough to become a playground of lost souls and jubilant adventurers. It is also capable of accommodating hundreds of people because of its wide area.
I tried sleeping on the fine sand and I love it. It’s like a comfortable hotel bed with a view of the milky way galaxy. Wait, is this the billion-star hotel? Definitely!
Lovely Turquoise Sea Water
Paired with the white fine sand is the lovely turquoise sea water that Hidden Beach Resort offers. It’s significantly clean enough for you to enjoy swimming and do some water bending (I meant playing lol).
The resort offers mini-huts for people who wants to get the most out of their vacation. The rooms are designed perfectly to give you a lovely experience beside the beach. It has a mini-balcony providing the view of the seashore and the turquoise sea. Though it does not have air-conditioning units inside the rooms, the chilling wind breeze is enough to cool down the temperature of the nipa hut. It’s basically a provincial life that really makes difference on what we live in the city.
I’m a budget traveler and what I love about this beach is its cheap rates! For only P50 (day use), you get to enjoy this hidden paradise. Table costs around P150 and cottages for P400. If you wish to spend the night, entrance fee becomes P70 and cottages becomes P600. Room rates also start from P600 good for two. Take note, Hermit’s Cove does not allow overnight use so where would you go if you want to gaze stars and spend the night at the beach? Hidden Beach Resort it is!
For me, Hidden Beach Resort has the perfect edge with its peaceful surroundings. The resort is far away from the residential thus noise only comes from other travelers. Ear-pleasing sound of the waves, the sea breeze and the crickets is what you hear most. Unlike popular beaches in Lambug, Badian or Basdaku, Moalboal where there a lot of people that tends to destroy your stress-free vacation because of their rah-rah.
When I think of Hidden Beach Resort, I think of a refreshing vacay! It’s not the typical resort where numerous amenities are available like watersports, sardines run and the like but what I like most of this resort is its calming and peaceful environment that gives a rejuvenating vacay. Especially for those who wants to chill out instead of having a party, this hidden gem is a must try!
If you want to go for an escapade in the beautiful province of Aloguinsan, do consider Hidden Beach Resort if you like a refreshing getaway. When my schedule is freed up and I wanted to chill out and distress, I would surely go to Hidden Beach Resort, would you?
