Buho Rock Resort

For thrill seekers out there, Buho Rock Resort is a must visit place for you when you go to Camotes. For only 20php, you can fuel all the adrenaline you want by Cliff Jumping.
There are two levels to jump from so you can test how brave you are.
I wasn't feeling particularly brave that day because of the waves but I still felt proud that I was able to jump even on the 1st level! Whooohoooo!!
I'm from the island and I'm used to jumping off from ports and boats but I never got the chance to jump off a cliff when I was young.
So the experience was new to me and I must say, it's a very fulfilling experience.
I am proud of myself for doing it!

Mangodlong "Paradise" Beach Resort

Another option for your BeachBums out there are the sister beaches' (that sounded weird.. haha) Mangodlong Beach Resort and Mangodlong Paradise Beach resort. 
I've been to Mangodlong Beach Resort twice and for an entrance fee of 40php, you can lounge and enjoy the white sand beach, play volleyball, swim at the sea and take countless pictures of this instagrammable place. They also have a swimming pool that you can use for an additional cost, cottages that you can rent and a restaurant that serves an array of menu.
But ever since I've heard about Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort and their infinity pool. So when we arrived at Mangodlong Beach Resort, I asked the receptionist where Paradise is and she courteously said that it is located just next to us, at the right side.
We just passed by it pala on our way to Mangodlong. It's kind of hard to spot especially when you see the Mangodlong signage and your eyes is fixed to the beach just a few meters ahead.
Finally we got to Paradise and I immediately asked the receptionist how much the entrance fee is. With a whooping 240php per person, they graciously allowed us to roam around the area for free and then decide if we want to stay. Once I saw the infinity pool I knew that I have to say goodbye to my money.
I mean, look at that. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so might as well grab it!
I was internally wishing though that there might be some freebies like free drink or free use of towel but there was none. Please consider this suggestion though.
They also have a restaurant and they were serving buffet breakfast to the in-house guests when we got there.
Sample of their refreshments: 
Rates:
They also offer a package tour of the Island.
All in all, it was a 240php well spent.
P.S., they accept Credit Card payment. ☺

Santiago White Beach

Dubbed as the Little Boracay in Cebu, Camotes Island surely didn't disappoint. With its pristine white sand beach, it really feels like your in Boracay.
Actually, it wasn't my original plan for us to camp at Santiago. I wanted to stay the night at Bakhaw Beach, Ezperanza originally because it's still undeveloped making the rates lower and the crowd less. But the downside to staying there is that there are no restaurants in the area. You can, however, bring your own raw food and cook it yourself. I know Borromeo Beach Resort has a kitchen for you to use if you stay with them.
Luckily for us, Santiago White Beach was not crowded during that time. We went there in time for Sanfrancisco Town's fiesta so everyone was in the town to celebrate. We, and a handful of tourists, had the beach all to ourselves.
We immediately proceeded to pitching our tents which costed us 100php per tent. Not bad, right? But if you have the extra money and would want to sleep in an actual bed, there are resorts that line up the coast. You can opt to stay at Santiago Beach Resort (they have pools), Payag Beach Resort, or BellaVistaMare Beach Resort to name a few. It will cost you at around 800~1500php per night on standard rooms.
And ohhh.. there is no entrance fee to the beach as it is a public beach. But once you bring a vehicle, you will have to pay the parking fee. Also, cottages with electricity are also available for rental (approximately 200php). But they have tables that you can use for free on a first-come-first-served basis.
Enjoying the beach and its serenity.
Come dinner time, we did not have a hard time finding food because there are several restaurants in the beach area. Here's a sample of their menu.
The food was actually cheap! The servings are big and the price are just right, some below 100php. We even got amazed when we got that pitcher of Iced Tea for 30php only!! Hahaha.. I thought I was just having a glass, but I got a pitcher! ☺
The next day, we also had our breakfast at the beach for 75php per combo meal (rice meal + coffee).
All in all, I was so happy to have made the decision to stay the night here instead. It was a very relaxing day full of laughter and stories shared.
I hope you had a wonderful time at Santiago White Beach like I did! ♥
