A Short Trip in Baliangao, Misamis Occidental: Visiting The Bless Amare Sunrise Resort


So, after exploring and enjoying the innate beauty of Baobawon Island in the Municipality of Plaridel, Misamis Occidental. I decided to have a quick sojourn in the nearby town, which is in the Municipality of Baliangao, Misamis Occidental. The town of Baliangao is not just known as the Seafood Capital of Misamis Occidental. But, this town is also known for having a few numbers of beautiful white sand beach Resort namely; Bless Amare Sunrise Resort or locally known as Sunrise Beach Resort, Sam Niza Beach Resort, which both are located close to each other. The Bito-on Beach Resort, Tamban Beach Resort, and the last two Resorts are Oklahoma Island Rafis Resort and Inday-Inday Beach Resort, and both are located in Cabgan Island, Baliangao Misamis Occidental. Possibly, these two resorts are the farthest among the other white sand beach Resorts that is located in Balingao, Misamis Occidental.

Honestly, I haven’t heard about Baliangao before, but since I was on a road trip exploring the Province of Misamis Occidental, I discover this quiet town on the google map. There – I find it really interesting, that’s why, I decided to have a visit even for a short period of time.

The clinging heat of the sun at that time was really a struggle. But, since my friend and I were so eager to traipse our feet in this town, we then continue on our road trip. Actually, both of us were not familiar about the road going to the Municipality of Baliangao, Misamis Occidental. Merely, we knew that with the help of our google map, we can surely get to this town. And so, right after asking from locals on which route to turn next whenever we see junction roads that leads us to confusion. Our silent prayers might have silently flying to the heavens, and we were able to reach in the town of Baliangao, Misamis Occidental.

But, precisely before we finally decided on which resort to visit. We drop by first at the small eatery where we had our lunch, since it was already late in the afternoon, and we haven’t had our lunch at that time. Just imagine the feeling of experiencing the clinging heat of the sun kissing our surface, and our hungry stomach that have been pleading for more than an hour before we finally decided to have our lunch. So, It was heaven on earth the moment our food was served. After having our lunch, I couldn’t exactly remember the taste of the food. All I remembered at that time was that, I was satisfied and I’m full.

And then, right after we had our lunch, we asked the owner of the eatery on which Resort she would recommend, then she gladly told us about the Bless Amare Sunrise Resort. Then, we smiled back at her, since it was the same beach Resort that one of our friends have recommended.

Bless Amare Sunrise Resort or also Known as Bless Amare Sunrise Retreat Center And Resort is a beautiful white sand Beach Resort located in Brgy. Tugas, Baliangao, Misamis Occidental. Moreover, this Resort is known to own a long stretch of white sand shoreline comparing it to other white sand beach resort located in Baliangao, Misamis Occidental. Possibly this is an exquisite haven for those that love beach while enjoying the beauty of nature at its best. It really looks like a stunning Cove tucked in the middle both ends of coral rock and cliffs. And with its cobalt blue water; rich in marine life, and everything that this Resort has to proffer, it is a place like no other.

In truth, we continue following the google map going to the Bless Amare Sunrise Resort. And after asking the locals for the clarification about the direction, we were able to traipse our feet at the Resort. It was excessively hot when we arrived and I can really feel the clinging heat of the sun freely kissing my surface at that time. Then, we paid PHP 40.00 for the entrance fee, which have granted us a full access to the Resort.

The moment I entered in the Resort, I immediately noticed how serene the place was. It wasn’t crowded when we arrived. There were cottages available for rent, ranging from PHP 300.00 to PHP 800.00, this can be availed for day use and night use. But, if you want to extend your stay and want to have a relaxing night, you can avail their affordable accommodations, ranging from PHP 1,500.00 to PHP 5,000.00.

Moreover, the Bless Amare Sunrise Resort has so much to offer aside from its turquoise waters, white sand beach, and rich in marine life. But, the Resort exudes a rustic charm and simplicity, making it comfortable to lose track of time and just enjoy yourselves. Whether you’re a couple of wandering travelers, a vacationing family or Barkada, or a company looking for the next setting to their squad-building activities, there is always something to be found in Bless Amare Surise Resort.

Additionally, the Resort also offers not just a comfort for your eyes and feet, but they also have activities that will surely make your stay memorable. They have a volleyball court where you can enjoy it for free, you just have to bring your own ball. Likewise, your inner child will be awaken with their unique swings, which are tied to the Talisay trees facing the beach using the sturdy rope. The swings are made from vehicle tires, which I guess, it is so creative to make such.

What I like most about the Bless Amare Sunrise Resort is the Talisay trees lining along the shoreline, which gives shade to the beach goers, since it can be very hot at times, especially during summer time in the Philippines. Also, at the end of the white sand shoreline, one can relish the panoramic view of the vast ocean and the stretch of white sand shoreline from the higher part of the rock coral cliff.

During my sojourn, I was able to commune with nature; enjoying how the sea breeze touching my surface, the sound of the frail waves kissing the coast, and everything that Bless Amare Sunrise Resort has to offer. I also loved to take a dip at that time, since the turquoise water is so tempting. But, I didn’t bring an extra shirt and we also need to travel to the Municipality of Sapang Dalaga, Misamis Occidental to visit some of their beautiful waterfalls.

Hopefully, on my next visit soon, I can have a leisure time to enjoy more of what this Resort has to proffer. And to visit some other beach Resorts that are also sited in the Municipality of Baliangao, Misamis Occidental.

  6. It looks there are endless possibilities in Philipinnes. Every island has something special. This one is small, cute and doesn’t seem to have many tourists. A good place to relax for a few days.
