Tristan’s Resort

I recently went to Bantayan Island and stayed at Tristan’s Resort. Tristan’s is a calm peaceful place where you can enjoy the warm waters and good food.

Day Trip: Bantayan Island

Bantayan Island Quickie Yesterday I woke up to the sound of my air conditioner going off. Its yet another brown out in Bogo City.

Kids all over the Philippines make sail boats out of whatever materials they have. When we went near the beach at night, we spotted these kids playing with the sail boats the crafted from discarded items.

Bantayan Island Resorts

It is my goal to stay at each beach resort on Bantayan Island at least twice and give you the inside information on each one.

Kota Park

On our visit on March 22nd, we had the chance to visit a beach and park used by the locals. Now this beach is not secluded like the beaches on Santa Fe but its a very nice beach with lots of room to roam in the sea. If you like to rub elbows with the locals, this is the place to go.

It is located on the southern tip of the Island in Madridejos Bay near Madridejos town. A strong typhoon blew threw May of 2008 and did quite a bit of damage and the facilities have not been fully restored. But nothing that should cause you to enjoy the place any less. There is a bay-walk and the last section of it had to be closed due to significant damage. It is still very enjoyable to walk down that way.
