Last November, me and my boyfriend celebrated our first at BE Resort Mactan. We availed of their Day use promo because we had a work on the night that day. It was worth 3487 PHP inclusive of room accommodation, use of resort facilities, set of lunch (appetizer, main course and dessert) and one round of drinks but if without the room accommodation it’s only 899 PHP per pax. When we went there, we were the only customers there. We really own the place. Thank you BE! 😀
The resort is so Instagramable. The colors in their rooms are so cool in the eyes. The place is also clean and cozy.
Be Resort gives a tropical feeling and a budget friendly than other resorts that I’ve been. Its simplicity and elegance made me decide to certainly go back here and try to stay for a night. Maybe this summer? How about you? What’s your plan this summer?
Good morning beach! How lovely it is to wake up to this kind of view. After we ate our breakfast we prepared for our next activity, which is going to Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary!
FIRST: Birding at OLANGO ISLAND WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
When we went to the bird sanctuary, we just walked because we thought it is near but still we pursue to go there.
I was kind a bit discouraged because we just saw 1-3 kinds of birds that which are not so new to me. The guide told us it’s because most of the birds migrating on the place during September to December and if you really want to watch more birds try bringing binoculars or scopes. Adding more tip, as expected to be exposed in a direct sunlight, same with what we experienced do wear comfortable clothing and consider a cap or hat. Lastly, bring sufficient supply of drinking water.
We went back again to our resort after birding. This time we rode a tricycle. Believe it or not we were 11 people, but we never thought that we fitted in one tricycle.
NEXT: Snorkelling at NALUSUAN ISLAND
We went back to the resort; we directly rode a boat going to the island. The crew at the resort were the ones associating the boat for us. Thanks Kuya! 🙂
The travelling time from the resort to the island is 10-15 minutes. Tada!
Actually, that was the first time I swam in Blue Ocean. I’m scared because I don’t really know how to swim. Good thing my friends really encourage me to try one because it’s just a waste of time if I just stay on the boat and just watch them enjoying it.
Nalusuan Island Resort in overall was expensive even if we just went there for snorkelling but still the guards told us to pay 200 PHP. Yet I enjoyed watching and swimming with fishes and other sea creatures. It really giggles me every time colorful fishes joined me and it makes me feel like I’m Ariel in Little Mermaid or probably Dyesebel (LOL). I borrowed the underwater cam of my colleague and capture some underwater moments.
How was my underwater photography skill? Is it okay or no? 😦
Last April 18 – 19, 2015 we went to Olango Islands together with my friends in the office. We met at the Parkmall Terminal to ride a jeep going to Punta Engaño Pier. Then we took a ferry there going to Olango Island. The fare going to the island is 15 pesos with a 1 peso terminal fee and the travel time is 10-15 minutes. Upon arriving in Sta. Rosa Pier in Olango we were fetched by a van going to the Olango Paradise Island Resort.
As we put down our bags in our Safari-themed room, we ate our lunch. Actually, you can bring your own food, but you have to pay the corkage.
When we finished our lunch, it’s our time to dip in to the beach, but during the afternoon we don’t know that in Olango their beaches gets low tide earlier than our beaches in Cebu so we decided to go to the San Vicente Olango Marine Sanctuary. The fish sanctuary is just beside our resort.
Even if it’s low tide, we still capture those creatures.

As we went back to our resort, we sat down to the bean bags and continue to watch the sunset til staying for our dinner.
We waited until 11pm just to take a dip into the beach yet still the water was still low. So we decided to take a bath and off to sleep because we were also tired that we don’t have yet sleep after work. Good night 🙂
Olango Paradise Island Resort is a secluded and isolated place where most of the people are always used to be in a busy environment. It definitely caters the needs for those seeking for peace and solitude. This is just one of those places I won’t bother returning. It is still worth a visit!
