Punta Malabrigo Beach Resort has a variety of accommodations for vacationers too choose from at reasonable prices. Guest can even opt to a tent accommodation for a more adventurous outing. And for large groups or corporate outings a 2 – level open pavilion can be rented out.
The beach in Malabrigo however has a different characteristic. The shorelines are filled with pebble stones of different sizes, which makes the water clear. According to Mr. Evangelista the stones are carried to the shoreline during the monsoon months. However, the stones are not the rough ones.
Guest are allowed to bring in food and drinks inside the resort. On the other hand visitors who wish to have their food served by the resort, have to advice the management in advance. This will benefit travelers who are in a budget break.
The shoreline stretch where your eyes can see, there were hammocks outside each duplex, billiard table, a place for volleyball, you can have a tent set up, there’s a 2 floor function hall, each duplex has a dining place with mosquito net, cooking place and place to wash your dishes. The rooms are newly painted, bed was not firm but they gave us fresh linen, the toilet and bath was small but well maintained.
We didn’t bring any food expecting the resort have a restaurant, they told us that we have to tell them in advance so they can prepare food for us. But the owner let her niece come with us to the market in Lobo town, which is around 15 minutes by car, to buy fresh catch of the day and they will cook it for a minimal fee. We have been billed a total of PhP 1870 for the room PhP 1, 500 and cooking, rice, and water i think that we consume during our overnight stay. I say it’s cheap!
The beach has an entire stretch of stones and not sand. The first time we swam was like 5pm and waves were really big mainly because it was raining that day and we couldn’t really see fishes in the water. At night, we set up our grill and roasted some hotdogs and marsmallows other campers set up a bonfire near the beach. We had a better luck the next day as we were able to snorkle and see schools of fish.
And for those who would like to catch a glimpse of the century-old Spanish lighthouse Cape Malabrigo, it is just a stone throw away from the resort.
A relaxing experience!
