This hidden jewel in Aloguinsan is one of the most beautiful coves I have been to. A little bit of an offroad drive and a rugged terrain up Kantabogon Road, the stunning view once you arrive at the entrance would tell you it was all worth the trip.
White sand and turquoise water surrounded by an alluring natural landscape, it’s easy to fall in love with Hermit’s Cove. If you want a recluse that’s just about 2.5-3 hours away from the city, this will be one of my top recommendations to visit.
Entrance fee is only P100 per person, inclusive of cottage use. Camping is NOT allowed in the cove. There’s a sari-sari store (local convenient store) just before you descend to the beachfront. Though only drinks, snacks and noodles are available. Fresh catch are sold by the fishermen at the shore, and they cook ’em for a minimal fee, but choices may be too limited, so better buy raw meat and seafood at Aloguinsan Market before heading here.

By Public Transport:
From Cebu South Bus Terminal, hop on a bus bound for Aloguinsan. Tell the conductor that you’ll alight at The Farmhouse in Aloguinsan. Fare is less than P100. From The Farmhouse you need to ride a “habal-habal” or motorcycle for hire to Hermit’s Cove. I suggest you make a stopover at Aloguinsan Public Market to buy cooked food, or buy it from the city before riding the bus from South Bus Terminal.
