The beach is always a great place to be ~

Yes, yes… We’re currently on lockdown. However, let’s look at the positive side of things. Let’s take this time to be with our loved ones, and we can have this as a time for us to plan our out of town trips soon. We know of a place in the north of Cebu where you can have the whole resthouse and resort all to yourselves – Jarapan’s Resthouse in Daanbantayan.

Jarapan’s Resthouse became popular among netizens when it trended on social media because of its water slide that connects the pool area right into the sea. It’s pretty cool actually and would be a lot of fun to try out. It’s a private rest house right in front of the beach.

The resthouse is great for intimate gatherings like team buildings, family reunions, barkada outings, and even birthday or christening parties. You can set up the area to your liking once you book it for a special event.

After spending some time swimming at the beach, you’d want to eat a lot and you guys can have a bbq party here. You can grill on the side, while your family and friends sing and dance to some karaoke hits. Then the kids can dip and splash at the pool.

The beach at Jarapan’s Resthouse also looks like a good place to do some snorkeling fun. Then, you can bathe under the sun or just read a book while you breathe all that fresh sea breeze. Meditate or practice some sun salutation while you wait for the beautiful sunset. And at night, you can marvel at the pretty night sky and gaze at the million stars above. Sounds pretty good, eh. 🙂
