I learned about Alorro Beach Resort earlier this month by accident. 🙂 We were inspecting a property nearby and we could see from where we were standing a long stretch of white sand. So we drove towards the area and found several simple cottages facing the beach.
Earlier this week, our workers in Samal informed us that they finished cleaning the area already. And that we can walk on the property without fear of being bitten by a snake. 🙂 So John and I went back. This time with the whole family.
Yep, we took them along so they can enjoy the beach. I said “they”, because after the photo op John and I had to work… 🙂
I walked to the beach to take this photo of the water, sand and the boats. Beautiful right? I think we found a new favorite. 🙂
Like I said above, the cottages are very simple. Hence, the cost is so cheap as well. Entrance fee is only Php10.00 per head. And the day time cottage is only P150.00 . For those who want to stay overnight, they have closed cottages ranging from P350.00 to P800.00 . You can also bring a tent and just camp out infront of the beach. I’m sure the sunrise in this area is spectacular as well.
There is a sari-sari store in the area where you can buy canned goods, soft drinks, etc. But I suggest that you just bring your own food when you go there. In our case, my sister Pearlie prepared afritada , bihon and rice. Then brought fresh pork chop for grilling at the site. Yes, Alorro has a grilling area. 🙂
The most beautiful part I liked was when the neighboring fishermen went to our table and sold us freshly caught fishes! The price was P160.00 only for “isda sa bato”. 🙂 Gee, that’s almost P400.00 pesos per kilo when I buy from SM supermarket. Oh, I really loved that!
Another thing I liked was the boat ride. I rented a motorboat to access the beach below the property we walked through earlier in the day.

The water is amazing. It’s so clean and clear. And I could see the corals underneath. With the corals and the rocks, I saw a lot of small fishes in the water.
My verdict? The place is rough but with some development, one can enjoy it to its full potential. During our walk, I saw 3 tall rocks (at least 5 meters high) which is perfect for rock climbing. And there is a cave for spelunking… Nope, we weren’t able to go inside yet. When we do, I’ll share the photos with you in the future.
My nephews fell asleep after hours of frolicking in the beach… 🙂
Ours was a classic “business with pleasure” trip. 🙂 And believe me, it was fun!
Summer isn’t over yet. So you still have time. Go and explore Samal Island. 🙂
Check the coordinates above. Even google will show you how white the sand is… 🙂
Ciao for now my friends. See you next time!
