A private vacation at Island Buenavista

STEP up your summer vacation this year when you visit the Island Buenavista where you can enjoy a private vacation on a beautiful island.

The Island Buenavista located at Small Liguid Island at Barangay Balet, Island Garden City of Samal, is an place where you will not only be amazed by the white sand beach but also the rich marine life. The cherry on top of the treat is a cozy accommodation offered in their fully furnished rooms that all face towards the ocean.

The island is a work of art in every corner. Adding to the fascination is their kidney-shaped swimming pool surrounded by trees and flowers.

While we were enjoying the beauty around us, we heard a sound of a gong being rang. Don't panic when you hear this, instead be very much excited because this simply means that “Food is ready."

The food they serve here will definitely make your tummies happy. Their bestseller, tinolang manok, was among my favorite. Their Pork Humba melts in your mouth.

What's an island experience without seafood? Of course they have. Their salad here is also very fresh as the greens are brought in from the vegetable gardens of Eden Nature Park and Resort. They also offer fruits and desserts for you to enjoy.

You can enjoy the delicious food here as it is part of the of the P2,800 day tour package, which is exclusive every Saturdays of April and May this year.

They also offer fire dancing, videoke, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba-diving, and panulo or crab catching. These are the activities you can surely enjoy in the island.

A visit at their Gazebo provides you an amazing view of the nearby islands and sight of fishes swimming in the crystal clear waters.
