Nearby attractions

Tambobong Beach
1.57 km away

The jump off point for Dasol's more famous tourist attractions, Tambobong Beach is a beauty in itself, with a stretch of fine white sand and a front row view of the stunning sunrise. Waters here are typically calm and shallow, so swimmers and non-swimmers alike can enjoy. Marine life is plentiful in Tambobong as well, making it a great spot for snorkeling. Those who are so inclined might even like to befriend the local fishermen and hop on board with them as they set out for sea at sunset and return just at the crack of dawn.

Paratec Beach in Burgos
2.02 km away

With a generous sandbar, Paratek is great for beach bums of all ages, though the sharp rock formations are best reserved for the more stable walkers, who ideally are wearing the right footwear. It can be a challenging trek up and down the rough rocks, and the passage along the waters can get scarily narrow, with the waves smashing violently against the rocks. After a few twists and turns, the water does calm down at least for a short stretch – just enough for one to dive in and swim in the cool, bright blue waters.

Colibra Island in Dasol
4.78 km away

By now Colibra Island will have a certain ring to it, having recently entered the radar of local travel junkies and for good reason. Even from afar the island's cream-colored sand is enough to make any beach lover swoon. Add to that the almost unbelievably clear waters that change from a deep blue to a bright aqua as one approaches the island, and you've got a tropical paradise visitors won't soon forget. The island was named so for the resident snakes that would come out at night, though sightings have been less and less frequent these days. Only 16,000 square meters in size, the island can be circled in an afternoon, and with the option to camp out there overnight, both sunrise and sunset can be seen.
