Have you ever gone to a beach resort where you thought at one point while in a vacation that there’s no place like it? Or are you still looking for something that you have that rises above your expectations of a typical view of a beach scenery? Kawayan Cliff Resort is another of Misamis Oriental’s beautiful destinations where you can see a park and a beach combined.
Located at Pagahan, Initao, Misamis Oriental, Kawayan Cliff Resort is a 40-minute drive away from Cagayan de Oro City. Upon setting eye at the beach, you can see that it is like a quiet park where green grasses are blooming that are kept and landscaped well so that visitors can have a quality time to chill and relax with friends and family. Benches are available around the place to help you savor the moment at the same time enjoying the breeze of the sea and smell of the fresh air through the trees and small plants.
There are also small huts located near the cliff for you to have your own kind of “tambayan” at any point of the day. When twilight comes, the beach is adorned with lights which make it romantic when traveling with a loved one, plus, tents are ready-made for an overnight sleep.
On the edge of the cliff, there is a stairway leading to the splendid beach that you will surely love to explore. There are several gnarly rock formations for the eyes to behold and for the hands and feet to climb. When climbing, don’t forget to wear shoes and be sure to be extra careful stepping on pointy parts since these rocks are likable to sharp edges of coral reefs that could possibly cut you.
There are other things to explore in the area, a small cave into which curious can lead you to how far it stretches. The bottom of the sea has a rocky bottom of coral reefs in which a lot of fish and marine species live under it. All of these you can observe by just submerging half of your face into the crystal clear water of the beach. Of course, with that, you may as well do snorkeling.
