Trip Moments

The Philippine niche and beautiful island resort Sumilon is a small island with few tourists. Even a spa in the infinity pool or a spa with unrivalled sea views is a great holiday experience. We went after seeing the whale shark in oslob in the morning. At 11 o'clock in the afternoon, we had a meal at the beach and other buffets. The aroma of the barbecue fluttered. The buffet lunch is mainly Western-style, and there are also live cooking barbecued crabs. Head plates, staple foods, and snacks are all available. After lunch, I took a rest next to the pool. The pool was very deep, and the one-meter-eight people near the edge of the room couldnt step on it. There are snorkeling gear here, the beach and the water quality are very good, but there are a lot of corals underneath, it is best to wear flippers or diving socks to prevent cuts on the soles of the feet. [Traffic] When you arrive at oslob, you can take the electric tricycle to the exclusive dock of the sumilon blue island resort, then take the hotel's crab boat to the island. The first boat on the island is 8am every day. The last boat on the island is 4:30 pm [price] The island belongs to the sumilon bluewater island resort. The room needs to be booked in advance. The tent is about 1000 RMB a night and the room is about 2,000 RMB. Non-residents can also take part in a day trip to Whale Shark and Sumilong Island, including round-trip ferry tickets, buffet lunch at Sumilon Hotel, a towel, snorkeling, life jackets, and swimming pool access.
