Happy times come and go, but the memories you create will stay forever.

Today, let’s talk about a nice place up in the north eastern side of the island. North Sky Beach Resort in the reserved town of Sogod, is a great place for your family to spend some time together and create unforgettable summer memories!
Planning and organizing a group holiday adventure with friends and family can be a daunting task. Especially when you have to bring children along, you’ll have to think of the countless ways to keep them entertained. We don’t want these young ones to have tantrums while we’re trying to have a relaxing time away from the city. Let’s help you out, shall we?
The North Sky Beach Resort is a family-friendly resort in Sogod, complete with amenities that will keep you (adults) and your kids entertained for hours. With two options to choose from – your group can either choose the day tour or you can stay longer and spend the night. The resort has accommodations – all facing the beach.
The resort’s room rates are as follow:
