Stockli Beach Resort

We had our Team Building at Stockli Beach Resort in Badian last February 21, 2009. We were so blessed with a beautiful weather that day compared to the previous weeks.

Going to Badian is a 2-hour drive by private car and 3 hours by public transportation. We stopped over at Carcar to buy lechon and hanging rice (pusô) for lunch. The town of Carcar is famous for its yummy lechon (roasted pig).

the 5-minute walk

Stockli Beach is actually a private resort. In order to reach the place, you have to walk for 5 minutes passing through a public beach.  If you are bringing a car, the locals will offer to watch over your car for a fee of P100/night. That’s what we did. We brought 2 cars with us and we paid for the overnight parking. You can also go there by bus but you have to hire a trike to reach the area since it’s really far from the main road. One can also get there by hiring a v-hire (van for hire). The bus terminal is located at the South Bus Terminal and the v-hire is at Citilink. In getting there, after passing by the town proper, you just need to follow the main road until you see the signage “Cebu International Golf and Resort”. Make a right turn and follow the road until you reach the dead end leading to a dirt road where you’ll be  able to get a glimpse of the sea. We made the mistake of following the asphalt road despite seeing the sea and we got lost along the way. We realized this when we reached an area where we had to choose between turning right or turning left. Of course we had to go back 😆 I think it took us 20 minutes for the detour and back.

The resort has several huts. We chose the P2,000.00 hut which was good for 6 persons and paid P150/extra head. We were 14. There’s also a P2,500 hut good for 8 persons. Again, you need to pay for the extra head. They had this weird bathroom 😆 and it takes forever to open the shower faucet. There are also big mosquitoes in this area so better bring a mosquito repellent or the ever so reliable “Lion Tiger Katol” to ward off the mosquitoes 😆 The resort has no air conditioning. They provide electric fans instead. There are also sea urchins hiding on the part where there’s seaweeds so better be careful. But there are vast swimming areas free from those seaweeds. If you’ll walk 5 minutes further from the resort, you can find a beautiful spot to swim freely 🙂 I got thorned by those sea urchins tiwce. hahaha

As for cooking, you won’t have any problems since they have cooking utensils. Just bring your own plates and cups. The caretakers will even offer to cook your food but I guess this requires one to give a  small tip for the cooking. Since this is a secluded resort, you have to walk around 2-5 minutes to buy stuff (like onions,vinegar, ice, et al.) at a local convenience store in the area. You may also ask the caretakers to buy these stuff for you. In our case, we brought our own food and our colleagues (aspiring chefs) took turns in cooking our meals.
