Beautiful Tingko Beach at Alcoy, Cebu


My first summer shindig of 2013 together with friends was in Tingko Beach, Alcoy, Cebu. The beach looks like a privately owned beach just by looking at some pictures of the place. But the fact that it looks very beautiful does not tells you that going there is very expensive because it's a public beach in Alcoy. Yes, you heard it right, a beautiful white sand beach you can spend your summer with friends. 

The plan of the trip was made 2 weeks before the actual date. Since the contribution for the trip is within my budget then I automatically opt in with no second thought.

Saturday, 20 April '13, the day of the trip. We were all packed around 8 o'clock in the morning. A little early because going to Alcoy from Naga will need more or less 1 hour and 45 minutes  on a bus. Unfortunately we were not able to board a bus for standing almost 30 minutes on the sidewalk. We then decided to ride a jeep to Carcar and we'll find a bus there going to Alcoy. But the thing gets worst because all the bus going to Alcoy from Carcar are all full.

Good thing a jeep driver approach us and ask where are we heading. As soon as the driver knows where were heading, he made a deal for us. He will board us on his jeep to Tingko Beach in Alcoy for a fare of 70 pesos each person. We don't have other choice at the moment than waiting for buses full of passengers, we accepted the deal and arrived in the beach around 11 o'clock.

Then the party started!

Entrance fee is just 10 pesos and if you have a vehicle to park you'll need pay 50 pesos if I am not mistaken. Cottages rate vary on the size and it's look i guess. Hahahah! They charge from 1,000-2,000 pesos per cottages. If short on budget, you can rent a table and benches for only 250 pesos.

    1. Hello Jee!

      Thanks for dropping by!
      They do have rooms for rent. If I'm not mistaken, Php1,500 a day rent.

      You can also rent a tent or you can bring your own and set-up the tent on the shore. It's more cheaper than a room and more exciting. ^^
