For only P20 entrance fee, a fun and memorable day is guaranteed at Palicte Beach Resort. The place is complete with amenities and activities that you and your loved ones can enjoy while here. The beach front is covered with black sand that makes a perfect venue to indulge in exciting sandy activities like beach volleyball among others.

Their cottages can accommodate large groups. They even have those with a karaoke machine to challenge your vocal prowess. For Filipinos, belting in front of a karaoke is always the life of the party.

The resort’s fresh and peaceful morning vibe awaits those who booked an overnight stay. The clean and well-maintained shorelines will surely tempt everyone for a morning stroll while you wander yourself to the sight of the calm sea and the breeze of the sea-salty air.

Palicte Beach Resort’s overnight accommodation options are worth your budget. They have rooms in native designs that are perfect for couples, or you can also go for the air-conditioned rooms. For the campers, you can rent their tents and spend the night under the moonlight with your friends.

Spend the most of your stay here by renting their kayaks and paddle your way to the vast sea or pamper yourself with a book in their cozy tree house.

There’s no corkage fee so everyone can bring their favorite food. They have grilling/cooking stations where you can grill seafoods or roast pork belly. If you fell short of food, they serve all-day breakfast meals at an affordable price. There’s also a store which sells basic necessities. A restaurant will soon open on a small jetty that sits near the western end of the property.
