Tingko Beach, King Arthur's, El Paradiso - some of the places to go in Alcoy, Cebu

Alcoy, Cebu, Philippines

ALCOY is another municipality in Cebu Province and is located in the southern part of the island right next to the municipality of Dalaguete. The most popular beach in Alcoy is Tingko Beach located in Daan Lungsod. Being a beach lover, I can recommend the place but it is crowded on weekends, so go there on weekdays instead. You can rent a table ranging from 600 to 800 pesos, etc ($12-$16). You can also do island hopping from there, price per person is 30 pesos or $0.60 (2016). If you go there solo, just join other groups.

Another nice place where we stayed in was in King Arthur's Resort at Bon-Bon Pasol. It is the sister company of El Paradiso Sola Homes. What I like about this place is that you can just relax and enjoy the breeze, the place is quite windy especially near the seashore. The beach there is not as nice as Tingko beach, though.

By Bus
Go to South Bus Terminal near E-Mall or Elizabeth Mall in Cebu City and ride a bus going to Alcoy. It takes about 2 hours to travel from Cebu City to Alcoy. The bus leaves every 30 minutes. You may contact South Bus Terminal for inquiry at 253-3830 or 253-4119 or click here

By Car
If you're from Cebu or if you have rented a car in Cebu, go straight to Alcoy by taking the southern route. When you reached Carcar Rotunda, take the Sibonga route. 

By Taxi
Again, I do not recommend taking a taxi for long distance trip as it will be too costly especially if you are traveling alone but if you are not on a budget, you can get a taxi anywhere. Taxi cabs in Cebu are very accessible.

You can stay at Antig Tingko Beach - a public beach located in Daan Lungsod. Depending on which location you enter in, when we went there a few years ago, we entered for free but when we went there in 2016, there was a minimal entrance fee and we rented a table worth 600 pesos, others are priced 800, etc. The place can be very crowded during weekends. Also, do not expect toilets to be properly maintained but on the upside, you will surely love the beach and you can have an island hopping tour from there. If you go there by bus, you can ask the driver to drop you off at either Antig Tingko Beach 1 or Antig Tingko Beach 2.
