Basdaku Beach in Moalboal

Basdaku Beach in Moalboal

Basdaku beach, located in Moalboal, has a one kilometer white sandy coastline. There are many beach resorts in the area so you will have a lot of choices when you go there. 6 Kilometers away from basdaku, there’s also another beach called the Panagsama beach. Unfortunately, the place was blown a typhoon in 1984. So most tourists who plans to have the white sand beach experience choose basdaku.

You can also rent boats in basdaku which will bring you to a deeper part of the sea for snorkeling.

How to Go to Basdaku Beach

In South bus terminal, just ride a bus that is headed to moalboal. The payment is usually around 90 – 100 pesos. Just inform the konduktor (the guy who collects payment) to drop you on the road going to basdaku beach. If you’re in the right side of the bus, you will know that you’re already near basdaku beach when you start seeing beautiful beach views. You will also see the signboards of the different beach resorts in basdaku.

There are also motorcycle drivers there who wait for passengers and they will start calling passengers when they see a bus arrive. From there, you will need to inform the driver to bring you to basdaku beach. When I went there, I chose HK beach resort so I informed the driver to bring me there. The payment for the motorcylce ride is 20 pesos per head.

I was lucky that the bus stopped due to a road construction. So I had the chance to take this poto.

Entrance Fee and Accommodation

The entrance fee in HK beach resort is only 10 pesos. The standard rooms there are 1500 pesos and the family rooms are 2000 pesos per night. When I went there, all the rooms in HK beach resort are already occupied so I rented a room just beside HK for 1000 pesos. The room doesn’t have an air conditioner but it has an electric fan instead. The room also has its own rest room.

HK Resort’s contact number is 63-09194766385.

The Rooms of HK Beach Resort

If you don’t want to rent  a room, you can just bring your own tent. Some people just bring tents and sleep there overnight.

The Beach

Aside from the nice white sand, basdaku beach also has crystal clear water. To prove how clear the water is, I took a photo of my photo while it was under the water.

Your view when eating in HK Restaurant

HK resort has its own HK restaurant. Here are photos of the menus. Just click the images to enlarge:

    

If you want more affordable food, there’s a karendirya in basdaku.

You are also allowed to bring your own food there. There’s no corkage fee. If you want to, you can also cook or grill there. You can either rent the cooking equipment from them or bring your own equipment. Just be responsible in taking care of your own garbage. Keep the place clean since it’s an affordable yet beautiful beach resort.

If you need to buy fresh fish or seafood, there’s also a market near basdaku. You will need to ride a motorcycle again and the payment is 25 pesos per head.

What Can I Say about the Place?

Overall, my experience there was great. The beach is great and perfect for people who love swimming all day. Access to food is also easy since there’s a restaurant and you can just bring or cook your own food. The facilities are not that fancy but are good and clean. The people there are also friendly and very welcoming.

      Hi Charla! Yes, HK Resort is in Bas Daku. They accept walk-in guests but it’s better if you make reservations in advance. They’re usually fully booked especially during summer and peak seasons…

      Hi Ezyl… From Cebu South Bus terminal, ride a bus going to moalboal. Then ride a motorcycle going to Basdaku. Yes, the entrance fee is 10 pesos but may change depending on the season. You can bring your own tent and that is for free…

    • Author says:

      Hi Cris. Sorry I don’t have map but I can only give you directions. At the north bus terminal, just ride a bus going to Moalboal. The drop off point is the Moalboal Public Market. You can inform the driver or the conductor to drop you there. Then, you’ll need to ride a tricycle going to HK Basdaku. Hope this helped you. ;)

    • Author says:

      Hi Pat. Yes, those are still available. Though the rates may have changed a bit since it was last summer when I went there. But still, the rates at Basdaku are affordable. They have large cottages and rooms that can accommodate more people. The place is really great for group activities and team building especially the island hopping and snorkeling.

      I hope you’ll enjoy your future visit in Moalboal!

        Hello Mam.

        One last question the 1500 room aircon po ba sya? and may mayrerecommend po ba kayong ibang place to stay. we on a tight budget po kasi. thank you so much for your blog. detailed and helpful! :)

        • Author says:

          Hi Sheryl.

          Yes, the 1500 room is air-conditioned and it’s good for two. I’m not sure if it’s okay for three persons to occupy the place but I think you’ll just need to pay for the extra head. When I went there, I haven’t really stayed at HK since it was fully booked but there are rooms for rent just beside HK (Left side of HK when facing the beach). It’s more affordable there and I only paid 900 pesos. It was just a fan room but it has a private bathroom.

          Good luck and thanks for the kind words!

    • Author says:

      Hi Nikki. Moalboal is around three hours drive from Cebu City so just start traveling early so you’ll have time to enjoy the beach. The tents are around 500 pesos but there are also cottages that can be rented for around 200 pesos. And yes, you can bring your own food since there’s no corkage fee.

      • nikki says:

        ..sir pasenxa na kayo, gusto po talaga namin mgpunta sa moal boal, pero ang layo po pala, kulang napo kami sa oras, may mas malapit po ba na beach na pwede po puntahan? pasenxa napo kayo at out of topic po ako, maraming salamat po

        • Author says:

          There are beach resorts in Lapu-Lapu that you can visit within 30 minutes to one hour. One of the most affordable beaches there is Portofino. But beaches near the city are not really as beautiful as the beaches in North & South Cebu.

  49. maria says:

    hello there i just want to ask if ilan yung capacity sa family room?were planning to have overnight stay this weekend po tapos were about 25pax.can we have affordable rooms lng?plss help guys,and need a contact info din po.thanks

    • Author says:

      Hi Maria. I’m not really sure about the room capacity. I think you’re going to need to rent around 3 to 5 rooms. There’s also additional payment for extra heads. You can contact HK Resort through the number that I’ve provided in my post above. Hope that helps.

  50. vanessa says:

    Hi there author! naa pai tent rental diha sa basdaku? if naa pila, and is it available for overnight stay? thanks!!! how about food? pwede ra mi mgdala? are there any additional charges if mgdala mig food??? :)) thanks!!

      Yes, they had. I’m not sure if they still have tents for rent now. But you can bring your own tent.
      There’s no corkage fee and you can also rent grilling equipment from them.

If so, how much do you think will it be? Thank you for taking time in answering me. Although technically I know you are a blogger and not the resort owner :)

    • Author says:

      Hi Marie. Thanks for visiting my site and for the comment. :)
      I think you’ll need to rent two rooms which will cost around 5000 pesos. Or you may also rent one room and just pay for the extra heads.

  55. hazel says:

    hi, asks lang ko f pila ang rent sa tent and were 23 persons para basdako ni siya.

    Is the number of hk resort still the same? We are planning to go on Holy Week. How much is the motorcycle or tricycle rate? Would they accept reservation? And how will we pay? We plan to have a cottage only, is it ok for an overnyt stay?

    • Author says:

      Hi Sophie. I haven’t yet tried contacting their number again but they accept reservations and it’s really advisable to book a reservation first on peak seasons like the Holy Week. The motorcycle rate is around 20 pesos. It’s okay to only rent a cottage and you may also bring your own tent.
