This is an excellent beach and you can camp in the trees. There is nobody there and you can truly find paradise. The small town has friendly gift shops and restaurants. There is a boat from General Santos so it is easy to get to.

Peaceful. Doesn't have a garden, not even landscaped, don't have a nice view but relaxing place. Nice for a family bonding, not crowded, nor noisy. Very fine sand.

Ok, first of all, it is NOT boracay of the south. Boracay sand is better and there are more things to do in Boracay and more resort choices. However, the long stretch of beach is worth going to if you're near here. Though if you...More

Gumasa beach in Glan Province is a hidden treasure in Mindanao. (Proud Mindanaon here, wink* wink*). It is called Boracay of the South because of its firm-white sands/ beach. It offers tranquility and compared to the real Boracay, this place is good for those who...More
