Golden Sands Destination Resorts, previously known as Del Sands Resort-Sandoval Beach Resort (the name change is really confusing, I know), probably has one of the most good looking sights in the entire Cebu. Owning a long shoreline of fine white sands, this resort sure does have a lot to offer.

Speaking of offers, since it is now Golden Sands Destination Resorts, the beach coast is slowly being developed into a luxurious resort, and not anymore the 20-peso (and then 150-peso) one that it used to be known for.

Before the construction is completed, let us first enjoy the beauty of its rawness with these photos below:

No wonder this place got viral last year! Before, you can enter this paradise for 20 pesos as entrance fee before it increased to 150, now, I am not sure if you can enter for day use only, but based on a review I read on their Facebook, the rate has gone up from 150 to 500 pesos. I don’t know how true but that is an insane increase!

Anyway, if you are still interested to know more about this gem, please keep on scrolling down. I am telling you, this place is just starting to blossom so don’t worry about the rates!

Daanbantayan is blessed to have such beautiful beaches and I truly believe that whichever resort you choose to spend a holiday in, you will never regret a thing. As mentioned, Golden Sands Destination Resorts is developing this place, which means costs are higher but the value of nature is not being overlooked.

The management is simply highlighting the beauty of the resort by providing more interesting activities and accommodation services to the people.

Their activities offered include biking and kayaking. These come with day use (yes, they accept day use, more details below) and when you actually check in. Can you imagine biking here? I can’t, because I can’t bike. But anyway, it would be a nice experience to make memories along the shores of Daanbantayan during sunset (you should book for this Valentine’s Day already!).

And of course, kayaking. What’s a beach resort without a water activity?
