Dakong Bato: Hidden Abode Behind The Cliff

I got a breath of fresh air from the south with friends at Dakong Bato in Brgy.Cora, Dalaguete, Cebu. It is a 2-hour drive from the South Bus Terminal.  Unlike any other resorts with fine sand and long-stretched coastline, Dakong Bato is a stomping ground developed from big rock formations that are surrounding the place. What sets it apart from any other tourist destinations is its beauty that is hidden behind the rocks.From the highway, you wouldn’t know that there is a hidden abode behind the cliffs. So you really need to have sharp eyes to notice their signage once you step in Dalaguete.

Dakong Bato

This alluring threshold is very welcoming.

Welcome to Dakong Bato!

The south wing building with seaview and fully air-conditioned rooms.

From here, I would take you to the ground floor where the cottages and the pools are located. Dakong Bato has two pools. One in the south-wing and one in the north-wing. Both pools are child-friendly. The south-wing pool has a slide and a jacuzzi. In between these pools is what they call the water enclosure which is intended for those who want to take a plunge into the sea water.

This is their second pool. It's not that big though but it's refreshing because of the sea breeze.

I find it so refreshing seeing the clear sky and the horizon meeting with each other as I enjoy their infinity pool. 

This water enclosure is best for those who want to  feel a sand on the beach when the water ebbs.

This water enclosure is best for the non-swimmers.
