Cebu Trip: Rañola Beach Resort / KM-46 in Catmon

If you were born and raised in Cebu, do you remember the place or the go-to beach destination of your family or friends when you were little? Back when everything was pretty much more accessible and traffic-stress free.

Interestingly, this roadside cliff in Catmon trended on social media lately. Some shared their memories reliving the good old days, while some expressed their interest in visiting the place. Opened to the public since 1957, Hinagdanan Beach Rañola Beach Resort – also known as Kilometer-46 – nestles at the bottom of a roadside cliff in Brgy. Binongkalan, Catmon. It used to be very popular for outings in the north and a top choice for those residing in Catmon during the ’90s.
