If you visit Salagdoong Beach, you have to pass through the forrest to get there. I personally would not make a side trip to see it otherwise.

Long stretch of molave trees. The white tree trunks and few leaves make the place a little bit eerie and mysterious. You can see this forest reserve on your way to Salgdoong Beach resort.

I love the place! The wide and white sand shoreline with its deep blue clear sea. How it was developed, and the location of the cottages. You can choose anywhere to stay within the beach. Anywhere is good. Only you need to have a private...More

We only passed through here on the way to Salagdoong Beach Resort. The trees of the forest transforms the road into sort of a tunnel. Our group stopped by the road to take pictures there. :)
