It was back in 2015 when we planned going in Cangcuaay Beach Resort in Oslob Cebu. It was never done because of unforseen circumstances until last week when I got a chance to be with a team going here.
Back then, a perfect example of a Beach Resort is always Boracay considering the resources and the beach front. Compared to Boracay, Cangcua-ay has its own unique beauty as a beach that made it visited by many visitors.
We do not recommend children or grannies going here unless they are good with adventures and they are willing to take the risk.
From Cebu City, ride a bus to Lilo-an and ask the conductor to drop you off to Cancua-ay, Tan-awan. From Dumaguete City, ride a Ro-Ro going to Cebu Port and ride a bus to the Cangcua-ay Private Resort. From Cebu it would take you 4hours to get there while you can get here from Dumaguete City in just an hour. If you have private vehicles, then that would be better to make your travel more fun and less hassle.
Cooked foods are not available in the resort. So if you are planning to stay, better bring your own. The resort does not charge corkage so you can bring as much food as you like.
If you want to stay overnight, the resort does not offer rooms but instead they will let you borrow tents, foams, pillows and blankets.
Adult (10-up) – P100
Children (9-below) -P50
Tents and Sleeping Utilities
Additional P200 per person
These are 4-person tent and include foams, blankets and pillows.
Cangcua-ay is famous with its stunning beach and awesome reefs for snorkeling. It also features a cave by the stairs.
The hamok by the beach is one of the most visited part of Cangcua-ay which offers a great relaxation by the beach.
We took our trip from Bacolod City at 12 midnight taking the Kabankalan-Dumaguete route. We also have a chance to pass by Tanjay City and got our breakfast there. We got a great bite of the local delicacy “Budbud” which is famous in the place.
At 6AM we managed to ride the RoRo going to Lilo-an port in Cebu. Then, we got a chance to stop by the Oslob Museum for picture taking.
If you are more into taking pictures, then this is really a good spot. You will really get what you came here for but for the rest, decide it for yourself. And oh, there will be a 243 step stairs you need to take from the street to the beach and everyone going there is obliged to take that stairs. That is why we dont recommend this to kids and grannies unless they are willing to take the risks. [Lagawan.org 2016]
