Tingko Beach is located in Daanlungsod, Alcoy, Cebu. It is about 2 to 3 hours travel from Cebu City going down south. Its white sand and clear water would really give you a great swimming experience; and the best part is….. the beach is all yours for FREE! Yeah, you heard it right!, the beach has no any entrance fees. You will just pay for the cottages or the tables.
How To Get There: From Cebu City, you can take the bus going to Liloan, Santander via Oslob at the South Bus Terminal. You also have the option to take the v-hire in One Citilink Terminal. But I would strongly recommend to choose Ceres Bus Liner as they are safer and more convenient to ride. Tell the steward to drop you off in Tingko Beach. Do not worry, the beach is just along the highway so it is very easy to locate. The best landmark is Edward’s Place.
Where To Stay: The safest and most ideal place to stay in Tingko Beach is Edward’s Place. It is more convenient because they have their own mini mart where you could buy grocery items, and they could also cook food for you for just a small tip. About the rooms, they are perfect for families, friends, or honeymooners. You could even occupy all rooms for team-buildings at lesser cost compared to other resorts within the vicinity. Edward’s Place is just across the white sand beach.

Restaurant/Dining Area and Videoke Bar Note: You can use the Videoke for only 5 Php per 2 songs.
Free Use of the Floating Cottage (For Edward’s Place Guests)

Actually, we did not rent a room in Edward’s Place for this visit because we just visited the place for just a few hours from our trek in Osmena Peak, but Sir Edward himself treated us as valued guests for using their washroom with a minimal fee of only 10 Php. He is very entertaining and it is convenient and comfortable spending the rest of our time in his place. That is why I decided to feature his place in my blog and surely, I will be choosing to stay with Sir Edward when we visit Tingko in the near future and I would strongly suggest his place when visiting Tingko Beach.
