Bunzie's Cove: Cebu's piece of Caribbean

Piece of paradise

Cebu’s best beaches are usually found in the southern and northern parts of Cebu. Summer is almost over and for busy yuppies, a quick trip to either ends of Cebu proved to be de-stressing.

Interesting rock formation

Tucked in the North-eastern Cebu, Bunzie’s Cove is one of the Cebu’s best secret. Fondly known as “Caribbean Cove of Cebu” by well-travelled locals and expatriates alike, Bunzie’s Cove is a perfect hideaway with a private cove owned by a Singapore-based designer Annie Chen.

Bunzie's Cove

Located in Tabogon, Bunzie’s Cove is a 30-minute drive from the town of Sogod, passing Borbon along the way. The cove boasts of panoramic views of Tabogon Bay and Camotes Sea and a great sunset view spot. It has a pebbly shoreline, fringed with rocky edges which became a favorite to thrill seekers for cliff-diving stunts. Boat rides are also available upon request. Be sure to rent your boat before you jump off the cliff for a ride back to the shore. Don’t be fooled by the distance and depth.

Leap of faith

Row your own boat

Guests have the option to go a Day Use or an overnight.  Day-trippers can enjoy the Grecian verandah with relaxing lounge chairs, use of dirty kitchen, pebbly beach, swimming pool and comfort room for Php 100 per person. Corkage fee is charged at Php 500 for everything you’ve packed. Just make sure you brought everything you need to cook (including gas, matches, coal and food).

Manong the boatman

For weekenders, the resort has rooms that offer great ocean views. The garden cottage is a tourist favorite. It sits atop a cliff that with suspended terrace overlooking the varying aquamarine hues.

Summer can be spelled with a pool, great beach, sprawling patio with breathtaking views and friends.
