TRENDING: Sandoval Beach Resort in Daanbantayan

2018 really is Daanbantayan’s year. It’s the home of many underrated yet interesting resorts and the gateway to newly discovered northern gems like the Carnaza Island and Kinatarcan Island. And I believe Daanbantayan will continuously surprise us with its breathtaking jewels over time.

Not too many people know about this public beach in Daanbantayan, one of the reasons why it’s called the “hidden beach paradise”. But this is also surely worth the spotlight. Introducing, the Maya Beach Paradise or Sandoval Beach Resort in Maya, Daanbantayan – a public beach flaunting white sand beach and crystal clear waters. Surprisingly, as of this writing, it has NO ENTRANCE FEE! The entrance fee has skyrocketed to ₱150 per adult, ₱70 per kid for “maintenance purposes”.
