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

Alcoy, Cebu, Philippines

ALCOY is one of the best beach destinations in Cebu. It is situated in the southeastern part of the province 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 there 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. If you only want to stay there for an hour or 2, you can just leave your things on the shoreline and just pay for the minimal entrance fee.

Another nice place in Alcoy where we stayed in was in King Arthur's Resort at Bon-Bon Pasol. 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 but you will love the place just the same. King Arthur's is the sister company of El Paradiso Sola Homes (a Santorini-inspired resort of some sort).

You can stay at Antig Tingko Beach 1 or 2 (pictures above), a public beach located in Daan Lungsod. I believe you can bring your tent with you or rent a tent there for space rental. 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. You will surely love the beach and you can have an island hopping tour from there.
