Negros – Dauin

Dauin Beach
Dauin, Beach with Apo Island in the back

The easy way to Dauin, is to fly from Manila to Dumaguete. The other way is bit more difficult. When you fly into Cebu, I recommend to book a transport in advance. It’s often offered by the Resorts, you have booked. They pick you up from Cebu-Airport, drive you down to Liloan, there you take the Ferry to Sibulan, North of Dumaguete. There another car awaits you and take you on a 20 Minute Ride to Dauin.

Like in any place, finally there, compensates the long travel…;)

The beach is a little darker here, because of the old Volcanos nearby.

Resort and diving

I stayed in El Dorado Beach Resort. They have a diveshop: DiveSociety. I really loved to stay there and diving was just incredible. Because of the dark sand, the dives from the shore are more like Muck-Dives. For me, it was like a small Lembeh Strait. Dream for Underwaterphotographers.

They are also doing trips to Apo Island, Siquior and Oslob (Whalesharks) for Bluewater-Lovers.



There’s not pretty much around, besides the other Resort-Restaurants. The Restaurant of the El Dorado is awesome. Big Menu to choose from, and changing Specials of the day.


Nope….well at least there are always a couple of interesting people at the Poolbar. On saturdays and wednesdays, the boss offers a free transit to his small Club “Why not?” in Dumaguete. There you find some more places to spend an evening. The Ride with a Tricycle is around 300 PHP one-way. Depends on your negotiating-skills.

What else to do?

Dumaguete has got a couple of small shopping possibilities. Trips to the Volcano or Hot Springs are a good thing to spend a day. And…there is always a waterfall somewhere…;)
