Harbor View Family Resort

Harbor View Family Resort is one of the most affordable and convenient resorts in San Francisco, Camotes Islands.

Yes, the place is perfect for a romantic travel… of course, for a lone traveler too! It also offers great budget rates for families traveling or having vacation on the island.

This family resort is small, simple but comfortable enough. The structure of the building is made of concrete and native materials, such as nipa leaves (kind of palm), bamboo, wood, metal, and other supporting materials. The materials used are to make the structure look tropical and native-style and cool.

Island Hopping

This is one of the popular activities that many visitors of the island want to experience. You would usually do this as a day event visiting, enjoying, picnicking on the beaches of smaller islands belonging to Camotes or the neighboring province (such as Leyte).


Yes, this is fun especially for kids and beginners learning how to swim and enjoy the beauty of the sea world. Gears for this activity can be provided for rent by the resort and anywhere that provide this service.

Scuba Diving

You can do this when you arrange this with a dive shop. Surely, the resort would be happy to arrange this for you if you make a request. Doing this will make you see the diverse and beautiful marine life in Camotes. Cheaper to do this here too!
