Since Laguindingan Airport started its operation a few years ago, Laguindingan's tourism also started to boost and number one on that is the beach resorts industry.

So, we decided to list down the top 5 beach resorts to visit in Laguindingan area for your reference.

Sicolon Cove Resort - a Maldives inspired cottages stretched into the waters. These over water cottages is the highlight of the resort. For 5,000 pesos you can have exclusive use of the overwater cottage good for 15-20 people, but if you are on a budget, they also have few beachfront cottages for 2,500 pesos also good for up to 20 people. If you want to hold an event here, they also have over the water function rooms worth 10,000 pesos and can hold a maximum of 50-60 people. As of now, there is no overnight stay, because the resort's operating hour is from 6AM till 6PM only because they are still on soft opening as of this writing.

Note: If you plan to visit the resort, it is best to visit during high tide, because you won't be enjoying the Maldives-like experience here during low tide.

A small resort near the Tubajon Aqua Marine Park and Fish Sanctuary. They are charging a 20 pesos entrance fee per head and 200 pesos if you use the small swimming pool, that's 220 pesos for the entrance fee and pool usage.

They only have few cottages, so you better be there earlier during weekends to get a cottage for your group or else you will end up renting a table for 500-700 pesos, but you can haggle with the owner and get a discounted price. Beachfront is not very good especially during low tide.

Tubajon Aqua Marine Park and Fish Sanctuary

The size of the Aquamarine park and fish sanctuary is about 22 hectares. The place is covered with mangrove plants. It is a mangrove forest, it helps stabilize the coastline, reducing erosion from storm surges, currents, waves, and tides. The intricate root system of mangroves also makes these forests attractive to fish and other organisms seeking food and shelter from predators.

The local government of Tubajon, Laguindingan developed the place to generate income to help for the maintenance of the fish sanctuary. They are offering cottages for rent ranges from 300 pesos, 500 pesos and 1000 pesos. I love the place because of the natural mangrove forest that surrounds you, the water is clean, thanks to the mangrove trees as it helps filters the water. Mangroves provide ideal breeding grounds for the fish, shrimp, crabs, and other shellfish, so it is expected that you will find some marine species while swimming.

Note: Visit the resort during high tide for a much better experience.

Birhen Milagrosa Cliff, Moog Beach

Birhen sa Moog Chapel is one of the oldest churches in Misaims Oriental, located in Barangay Moog, Laguindingan. It was not known as a beach resort before, most locals in the area came here to visit the chapel and pray, but the crystal clear water of the area is inviting and some will go swimming after attending the mass together with their family and friends. Later, they developed the area into a low budget resort. Now they provided an affordable cottages for visitors. Cottages can be rented ranges from 100 to 300 pesos, depending on the size. What I like here is the crystal clear water and the place is not so crowded because it is a bit isolated.

Here's the Map as a guide on the locations of these resorts:

There you go, those are the resorts surrounding the Laguindingan Airport. There are also under-developed beaches in the area where you can swim, but there are no cottages provided.
