Been here multiple times, and Hermit’s Cove beauty is well kept by the locals and the entire Hermit’s Cove tourism team. With that said, it is time for me to show you how Hermit’s Cove took my attention and excited to re-visit this place again and again.
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.
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.
The entrance fee is PHP 100, and the cottages were free to use for a maximum of 3 hours stay, during weekends, and more than 3 hours during weekdays. Right after payments and registration, you will be instructed to choose your desired cottage then, another team will set the time-in and time-out duration into your receipts.
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.
