The Beauty Of Sipalay

7:53 PM




The Philippines is full of beautiful islands and sights that can mesmerize anyone. When you visit here, don't miss to see the beauty of Sipalay.

Let me give you a short tour.


The Beauty Of Sipalay

Sipalay, The Jewel of the Sugar Island, is about 4 to 5 hours by bus and 3-hour drive by car from Bacolod City (capital city of Negros Province). Being far away from Bacolod, Sipalay has uncrowded beaches and resorts that's perfect for those who want to have a private getaway.

Me and the cousins went there for a vacation over a weekend and we had an awesome time.

Sure there were miscommunication with the guide, the weather did not cooperate (it's always stormy in the Philippines) so we were unable to go island hopping. But there are just too many great places to see in Sipalay even without going island hopping or diving---another famous activity when in Sipalay.

We went to the 3 most popular destinations and we did so renting a tricycle. It's cheaper and faster.

Nataasan Beach Resort

Nataasan is by far the most expensive resort we went to in Sipalay, but it's also our favorite. We love the privacy it offers (we felt like we own the resort because we were the only ones using the pool), the beauty of the place, the food they serve (expensive but worth it), and the quiet beach,

Nataasan Beach Resort is in Punta Ballo, Brgy. IV, Sipalay City, Negros Occidental with 17 rooms to choose from. Again, the rates are expensive. But then privacy doesn't come cheap.



Perth Paradise

Perth Paradise has a spectacular view of islets surrounding it but the pool is really just small. It looks good on pictures but if you expect a vast infinity pool, you'll be disappointed. Nevertheless, you will enjoy this picturesque resort.

Perth Paradise is in Brgy. 4, Sitio Sambulawan.


Tinagong Dagat

Another picture perfect resort is Tinagong Dagat. If you want a cheaper accommodation, a fantastic view, but don't really plan on swimming, Tinagong Dagat should be your choice.

Tinagong Dagat is in 4 Sitio Latasan, Sipalay.



Just rent a trike to go around places. I recommend our tour guide Javal. You may contact him at 639108654309. He's terrific as he's really knowledgeable with the place (where to eat, where to visit, what the place is about) and he gives a good price (not updated of how much the current rates are though so you better check with him).

Unfortunately, it was raining really hard when we did our tour. The sun only came up later when we were about to check out. We weren't able to visit Sugar Beach due to miscommunication with our other tour guide. But that's alright. We can always visit it next time.

All in all, I'd recommend Sipalay to anyone who wants to travel Negros. Especially on top of the list is Nataasan Beach Resort. We spent more than we expected, yes. But it's surely worth the price.

Travel south and see the beauty of Sipalay.

  1. Hi, Luxie!

    I went to a Google map to get an idea of where on earth Sipalay is and how far south it is from where you live. That was quite a getaway for you and your cousins. I know you well enough by now to pick you out in the pictures. I'm sorry the weather didn't cooperate. I had no idea the Philippines are typically stormy. I am also sorry you didn't get to see all the places you intended to visit, but that should leave you yearning for next time. I like uncrowded beaches and resorts and the Nataasan Beach Resort looks magnificent. Thank you, dear friend Lux, for taking me along with you on your trip to Sipalay, The Jewel of the Sugar Island!

  3. Magnificent. I have read and I am aware of the islands in Philippines, but so far never had the chance to explore them. Of course, these places are definitely worth considering when it is my call to Philippines.

  31. I agree that finding privacy is something that paying a little extra for and is worth it. How wonderful that you got to explore these islands with your family, and share such wonderful memories with them. Even if the weather didn't cooperate, just being together is the best time you can have. The Philippines is such a beautiful place, so much to do and see there. I enjoyed my virtual tour with you :)
