Beaches - Dumaguete City

Frolicking on the beach and chasing the gentle waves as they crash against your feet is a fond childhood memory. With a small plastic bucket and shovel and no other materials except the powder-like white sand and chilly salt water, the beach has always been a great companion for a family outing. A remedy for the broken hearted, an antidote for the busy people looking for solitude, and a comfort to some questions in life we never seem to find the right answers to.

Once you visit Dumaguete, the most unforgettable sight you will forever carry in your heart are the beautiful beaches within walking distance from all the other tourist attractions. One of the most famous of them is the Rizal Boulevard which is the show window of the city. It is said that this was the very place Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal walked on the promenade and contemplated life before his martyrdom.

One will surely fall in love with its century-old trees lined up along the green grasses. The placid waters and the breathtaking view of the blue sky mirrored on the pristine waters.
