Laki Beach: Sidetrip to Five Fingers

All coves accessible for tourists could be explored in roughly four hours so to make the hours spent on the road more worthwhile, I highly recommend going to Laki Beach. Yes there is an entrance fee of Php200/pax for day tour or Php250/head for overnight stay but you’re already there so might as well rest in the island and bask in its raw beauty. There is a lagoon here where you could also cliff jump, some rock formations reminiscent of cookies and cream , and of course its fine white sand and emerald green pristine water. Though without a single decent cottage, it has coconut trees to offer some shade and an authentic secluded island experience.

We didn’t even need to snorkel in the lagoon. Because of the crystal clear water, we were amazed by the schools of fish as they create numerous formations, presenting their own marvelous show from above.

There is a cheaper beach at Php100/head entrance fee. Due to the issues circling the ownership of Laki Beach, there had been times in the recent past where Laki Beach was not available to the public. Since we were given Laki beach as an option, we decided we should grab the chance. Find some tips on the captions and some more travel tips and list of expenses on this blog post.

Visit the beach on a weekday and on a non-holiday for better chances of owning the whole island to yourself even for just a moment!
