Rio Beach Resort: Best Viewing Spot for Alegria’s Amazing Sunset

Rio Beach Resort in Alegria gives visitors more reasons to fall in love with the town. The beauty encapsulated within and around this resort stands as a testament to the amount of wonders that Alegria possesses and its potential of being more than just the town where Kawasan Falls is.

Rio Beach Resort has a spacious and verdant lawn garden just by the beachfront. This vast lawn garden is the space where memories are made with the family, colleagues, and the barkada.

Complementing the refreshing breeze blowing from the ocean and the stunning view of the ocean are swing sets and hammocks that are just begging guests to take a little moment to close their eyes. The well-maintained lawn is also a great venue for camping as the beachfront has one of the best sunset views in the resort.

Aside from camping, there are also cottages for rent for those who don’t have tents. Moreover, there is a common kitchen that is open to all of the guests; barbecue nights for everyone!

The relaxing and tranquil atmosphere in Rio Beach Resort is a contrasting environment to the thrilling canyoneering adventures of Kawasan. With the activities of the resort mostly consisting of deep sea adventures, this private resort is heavily outfitted with the right gears and tools that will make its guests make the most out of their vacations.

They have activities such as snorkeling and kayaking as well as day cruises and sunset cruises that take tourists on a marvelous tour of the different coral reefs in Alegria.

The most prominent coral reef destination in the town is called the “Batong Malunhaw”, said to be a gift from God, which exudes a holy underwater presence as it shines brightly among the other corals.

The cruise is a complete encounter with different ocean flora and fauna as it gives tourists the chance to swim with the fishes through snorkeling. As the sun sets under the horizon, tourists may be fortunate enough to witness a flock of dolphins frolicking in the water. 

There are loads of activities to experience in Rio Beach Resort alone but the resort also offers tours to nearby tourist attractions as well. It’s safe to say that Rio Beach Resort is the complete package when it comes to quality service and unforgettable moments.
