The Hidden Beach Resort is one of the most natural beaches in Cebu Province.
Being hidden means that it’s untouched by resort development projects and all that sort of money-making expensive resorts.
Being so natural, you can find lots of marine animals around – crabs, hermit crabs, shells, starfish, even sea urchins.
The sand is whitish and natural – by natural it means it’s not transported from other white beach or anything like that.
Since the beach is hidden, you have to find it by passing through some
thickets of trees and coconut palms. You’ll realize that you are getting
closer when you see the coral rocks the covers the sea in a distance.
As you catch a glimpse of the beach, you’ll be amazed to see clean beach water and shoreline hemmed with coconut trees.
Without further chattering, let's check out some of Hidden Beach Resort's natural hidden treasure.
The facilities for a non-commercial beach such as this, you know, are just basic and simple. Usually, you may need to bring your own personal provisions and other necessities for the beach.
Basically, Hidden Beach has…
Tables (costs 150 pesos)
These are simple tables made with wood and bamboo materials and simple long benches on both their sides. You can rent one if you don’t want a FREE picnic on the grass or sand.
Hut cottages (250 pesos)
These cottages are also basic, made of wood, bamboo and roofs with cogon or nipa leaves. This is cool actually – I mean the temperature because of their natural materials. Cottages are more private – surrounded with bamboo fences. Of course, they have long tables and extended sits on three sides, wherein you can take a nap on.
Grills for meat, fish, etc.
Yes, they have a place for preparing your dishes, such as grilling your prepared meat, squid, and other sea food or anything. It would be great maybe if you prepared rice (or bread, potatoes, or anything) in advance.
You can request the management (a staff) to prepare the food for you. You can either hand in your uncooked recipe or ask tell them you dish and prepare everything for you. Of course, you have to pay for that price – you know what I mean.
Overnight stay is allowed and simple rooms are available for rent. You can have a simple hut with power supply for lighting & for your gadgets, and a bed(s).
It will cost you between PhP500 and 1,000, as of this writing, which is a great budget rate in this nice beach. Let them know in advance if you want to reserve one.
Please, note that the above mentioned rates can change and vary depending on season and passage of time.
