Kamia, you can already see it from the car.
Sad to say that they no longer are open to the general public as of July 2014. A company called Seven Seas Properties wants to put in a fade Ocean park with underwater hotel rooms which will destroy the entire ecosystem of this bay. Please sign my petition to stop it.
We are thrilled this resort is finally open. We watched it being built on our forays to to watch the dolphins via Turtle Bay where we park our motorized banca. It's got a relatively small beach area, but the water is very clean and not turbulent at any season because it is inside the protected cove in Turtle Bay.
The breezes are always so refreshing there and the views are hard to beat. Nothing like it anywhere that we have been so relatively close to the city.
It's about a little less than an hour drive from city center. (It used to be before the traffic got so bad) Take the National highway south, past Mangingisda, go past the zig zag road and then the resort will be on the left with flags and a closed gate...pull up to the gate and HONK! There is a bamboo pole across, to keep cars from driving the steep hills. The hills at Kamia Bay Resort are very steep, and I do mean very steep, so they have people park at the entrance and then they take you by van the rest of the way to the Restaurant and beach area.
They have water sports like kayaking, sail boarding, snorkeling, scuba gear for rent with an instructor as well. If you swim they provide life jackets if you have kids, they have to wear them...which for our 5 year old kid who doesn't swim, I liked it. They have mangrove areas which can be toured as well.
|Outdoor seating by the bay also covered area in restaurant. The bartender there claims to make really good beach vodka martinis and other mixed drinks.|
The staff are very friendly and helpful and always welcome us with a smile. I suppose so far, we are their best customers. The resort does take all major credit cards if you decide on the spur of the moment to head there and don't have a chance to hit the ATM in city center.
I am very glad they are there and we do want them to succeed since it's so handy for us to get there by banca, only 6 minutes, and the ONLY restaurant for at least 20 kilometers. We will be going back often actually since it's so close. Sometimes we rent a cabana and sometimes we just hang out at the restaurant area.
If they had WiFi, I'd probably spend several days working from there actually, so I can swim in between business emails or get a massage. That would be divine and I cant wait until they put up the floating massage cabana. I am told they will soon implement WiFi.
|We rented this cabana. It was a good place to plop down our stuff and watch the kids swim from and order up food which was good. I ordered 3 dishes and they were all good. This cabana cost us 350.00 php.|
They have several of these floating barges with tables. I think we will try one of these next time.
|These are not open yet, but I was told that they will launch some water sports from them and also put in a floating massage cabana. When the get this, it's where you will find me! We can't get home service massage out where we live.|
