Isla Reta Beach Resort - Sta. Cruz Talicud, Samal Island

One best and ideal get away for you this summer is the Talicud Island. Talicud Island is still a part of Samal Island and one of the best Mindanao tourist spot. The advantage of the resorts located in Talicud Island is that the waters are fresh and very clean. Highly recommended to you and must include it on your travel blog. Unlike some resorts in Samal Island fronting Sasa Wharf are really not that good. They are rocky, itchy, many sea orchins and jelly fish. It is not suitable for sensitive skin.

One resort that is very known is the Isla Reta located in Talicud Island. It has clean and crystal clear water that is very indulging and refreshing. Isla Reta is an inexpensive resort with nice and approachable caretakers. It is an ideal place for family outing, team building and other summer activities.

There is a corkage on beverages. It is okay to bring baon. In case you don't want to, there's a canteen available and you can buy fishes, rice and let the caretakers cook it for you. But of course they do charge for it and canteen prices are much higher.

Getting there is very easy. From Sta. Ana wharf, there's a boat going directly to Isla Reta. Boat leaves from Sta. Ana wharf at 8:30AM and leaves Isla Reta resort by 3:00PM.

  5. Hi there, yes, overnight fee is 150.00 and if you will stay for 2 nights, off course you'll pay double. Accommodation is a different fee. They charge less if you bring tent. ^_^
