Why Hermit’s Cove?

Aloguinsan is located southwest part of Cebu, and Hermit’s Cove is a place you must visit. Not because it is near Cebu City, it a quick city escape when it’s time to have a “Sarap Buhay” moment.

How to get there?

Starting from South GT Express Terminal, going to Hermits Cove, this can take 2 hours straight if you are on a private vehicle.

However, if you are on public transportation. You have an option to take a van or bus instead, and your drop-off point would be “The Farm House in Aloguinsan“, from here, you have to ride a motorcycle going to Hermits Cove. The good news is, they have now a paved road, which the local government invested in this project considering the potential of having a well-paved road for tourists.

Quick Tour?

Disclaimer: In this time of writing, a strict pandemic precautionary measure has been observed at  Hermits Cove. I would strongly recommend following these measures for your convenience and other guests.

How was the entire experience?

I recommend Hermit’s Cove, aside from staff was accommodating and it is near Cebu City. It has a relaxing vibe, which a 3 hours stay is worth it. The downside is, they have not permitted guests for overnight stay yet, however, you can add Hermit’s Cove as a place to visit before going to Badian, Moalboal, and the rest of Cebu South resorts.
