Whispering Palms in Sipaway Island, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental


The beach front. Since it's already low tide, sightseeing is the only way to enjoy. However, we were so happy to find a spot for dipping and swimming. So we did while waiting for our lunch.
We paid P300 for the entrance and set lunch. 
There is no need to call ahead for this offer they have for the day trippers only.

The entrance to the resort that whispers to us to come in!

They have bicycles for rent. It is easy to get lost in the Island of Sipaway...
The usual route to the resorts are paved, that is the good news. However, there are no road signs 
and the paved road is escorted by coconut trees on both side. 
Well, this is one fun activity to do, if you happen to book for an overnight stay in Sipaway.

The pool is available for the overnight guests.
But the ocean is open for the day trippers.

They have a zoo which I did not explore.

***


They also have a teahouse but I did not go inside as the beach is enticing me!

***


The beachfront has huts with hammocks inside. Nice for daydreaming.
And some diffused thinking ala surrealist painter Salvador Dali...
***


This is the specialty of the house.


***





Playhut for the little ones!

Another play area for the tots.

Strolling under the whispering palms...

Sipaway is a great sidetrip when one is in San Carlos City 
or Don Salvador Benedicto or Cebu.
