I love going on out of town trips during weekdays when there are not much people in Cebu’s tourist spots. Just recently had some foreign friends over and toured them in Aloguinsan. About 59 kilometers southwest of Cebu City, the Municipality of Aloguinsan boasts of two charming attractions – Bojo River and Hermit’s Cove. The drive from Mactan to Aloguinsan is about 2.5 hours, and hammed up our stay by checking in for a night at Hidden Beach Resort.
About Hidden Bech Resort Aloguinsan Cebu
Its 1 kilometer stretch of white sand beachfront and the sunset are the resort’s prime attractions, and those cute friendly dogs too! We were booked in the resort’s cheapest overnight accommodations – P600 bucks for 2 persons, inclusive of resort entrance, without breakfast. The room is a small hut with a patio, a queen-sized bed and an electric fan. Nothing fancy, just the very basics. The toilet and shower are outside of the room, and shared with guests staying at the other basic fan rooms. Air-conditioned rooms with their own toilet and bath are also available for P1,500 a night per person. (Posted price as of 7 February 2019)
The property has a canteen but food choices are limited. And there’s only one restaurant, a cafe, that’s a bit close from the resort. I highly suggest you bring your own cooked food, drinks and snacks if you plan to stay at Hidden Beach Resort. You may also bring raw seafood and meat and have the caretakers cook them for you for a fee. Be sure to tell them ahead through the number provided.
Guests can drop by for a day use from 6:00AM to 6:00PM. Tables and cottages are available for rent.
How to get to Hidden Beach Resort by public transport:
From Cebu South Bus Terminal, hop on a bus bound for Aloguinsan and the bus ticketer that you’ll be alighting at Aloguinsan Public Market. The bus ride is about 2 hours. From the market, take a 20-munite motorcycle ride to Hidden Beach Resort. Be sure to get off at the resort gate and not by the road sign since it’s still about a 15-minute walk from the main road to the resort gate.
