Our Day Use Experience at Palanas By The Sea

I wanted to make my birthday extra special. I was thinking of celebrating it in a secluded resort where me and my family can enjoy the beauty of nature. My first choice was a mountain resort but we ended up in a beach resort located at Boljoon, south of Cebu. Well, I never regretted it since the place was beyond what I expected.


Its Location

If you are coming from Metro Cebu, the municipality of Boljoon is after Alcoy and before Oslob. With moderate traffic, you can reach it around 2.5 hours from South Bus Terminal. One of the most famous landmark there is Ili Rock. Surely no one will miss this gigantic rock just along the national highway. Also in this municipality, you will find the wonderful beach resort called Palanas By The Sea. Let me share to you what I personally love about this resort.


Travel Time

We decided to have a day use experience on the day of the Christmas Eve. Just imagine how busy everyone was with all the Christmas preparations. The traffic that day was manageable but it could have been better if we chose another day. We ended up 3 hours travelling from Talisay City to Boljoon. My advice is, if you are planning to travel to Southern Cebu, make sure to leave early or before sunrise to avoid heavy traffic.


What To Expect

The resort can easily be spotted right along the national highway of Boljoon. For motorists, parking area will not be a problem. The place can accommodate up to 8 cars and few motorcycles. They offer 3 swimming pools with different sizes and depth. There is also an area where one can relax in the side pool. You can also enjoy the romantic Baywalk while enjoying the view and waiting for sunset. For kids and kids at heart, the trampoline filled with colorful plastic balls is perfect for you. Because we Filipinos love karaoke, the resort offers free use of karaoke for its guests.

What We Love

Our stay at Palanas By the Sea was short and sweet. The ambience was so relaxing. I was expecting a lot of guests since it was a holiday but we were lucky to see only few. We felt that the whole place was intended for us. We made sure the place is perfect for our dog and it never failed us. The restrooms and shower rooms were well maintained. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. If you really want to enjoy the whole resort, I suggest you to have an overnight in one of their rooms.
