  • If you're going straight to Cangcua-Ay, ask the bus conductor to drop you off at Cancua-Ay Beach Resort.

The Beach

From the resort entrance along the highway, there is stair that has around 200 steps going down to the beach. Going down in the 200-step stair is not so hard, but going back especially with all your luggage is different LOL. After the 200 steps, you will be welcomed by a beautiful view of the ocean and the resort cottages.

Huge rocks on the shore
The beach doesn't have a long stretch of white sand but the huge rocks along the shore and the very nice clear waters is still captivating. During high tide, the rocks submerged into the water that adds more beauty to the beach.

You can relax in the hammock beside the huge rocks, try cliff diving on a diving platform standing on one of the huge rocks or just enjoy swimming and gaze upon the horizon of the sea.

  3. Another usually experienced circumstance for those creation reservations with a resort is the disarray at the resort upon the appearance to the resort and absence of the right measure of rooms that are between associated.hotels in corydon ia

  4. Can we have overnight using tent?

  5. Ideally this encourages you to settle on your choice on where to remain. At last, there is no correct answer with regards to remaining on or off-resort at Disney - everything relies upon what your inclination is. https://hotelgods.com/

  6. We will remain at Port Orleans - French Quarter to get that resort insight without the expense of remaining at a Deluxe resort. Nonetheless, who can say for sure what the future will bring!
