OCEAN VIEW BEACH RESORT

If you love the beach, I believe you will like the beach in Catmon, Cebu. The most popular is KM 47 but when we went there, we stayed at Mel and Kate (2016) now known as Ocean View Beach Resort (August 2020), just an arms length before the KM50 marker. The beach there is not white sand as compared to the beaches in Bantayan Island, Malapascua Island or Maravilla Beach but just the same, the beach is enough to satisfy your longing. The cottage at Ocean View Beach Resort is for three hundred pesos only (Php300)(August 2020). Tables are also available for rent. You can bring your food there with no corkage and there are enough parking space to park your vehicles. There is also a convenience store there. Play the video below to take a look inside.

FOOD | PARKING AREA | ENTRANCE
You can actually bring your own food there but you need to rent a cottage for only P200. There is a parking space there as well for both resorts that that we went to in separate occasions. The way it works there is when you arrived, you will go straight to the cottages and the person in charge will approach you to collect the cottage fee.

HOW TO GO TO CATMON BEACH
  1. Go to North Bus Terminal by riding a taxi or Grab.
  2. Ride a bus bound for Catmon, Sogod or any north-bound bus
  3. Disembark at your desired beach destination. You may tell the driver to drop you off at KM 45, KM 47, KM 50 or KM 51 or whichever place you want to go to there. When we went there, we stayed at Mel and Kate now known as Ocean View Beach Resort (near KM 50 marker) and at a beach resort in between KM 50 and KM 51. That's it, it's as easy as 1-2-3.
  • If you're from Cebu or if you have rented a car in Cebu, go straight to Catmon using the Consolacion bound route. You know you're nearer when you pass by the municipality of Carmen. You can start checking the beach at KM 45 or to where we stayed at between KM 50 and KM 51.
  • If you want you can charter a taxi to bring you there but it will be costly as the place is a little far from the city center.
WHERE TO STAY IN CATMON
Catmon is not too commercialized and the beaches there are kind of like a public place where you only need to rent a cottage, usually priced between Php200 to Php300.  You may stay from KM 45, KM 46, KM 47 or somewhere in between KM 45 to KM 52. If you want to stay overnight, check out Las Flores Hotel,  Agua Villa, Recuerdo Beach Resort, High Steps Pension (this is on the other side of the street), etc.

MUST TRY
When you get there, you should try their delicacy, bibingka (rice cake). I think it is somewhere between KM 51 to KM 53 (sorry I forgot the exact location). You know you are in the right direction when you see smokes everywhere.
