"The Boathouse" opened its doors in April 2014. The most used construction parts are made from natural materials such as wood, bamboo, savalli and nipa. All bathrooms are equipped with a hot/cold water shower. More Overall, the Boathouse is good for a total of 6 persons on 2 levels and offers sufficient space for the family, for group of friends, or backpacker with a small budget. An ideal place for upcoming exploration tours through the rain-forest, the neighboring waterfalls and starting point for to climb up to the summit of Mount Guiting Guiting. Sibuyan Adventures assist you with your touring's and the needed guides. Our small restaurant, "The Bamboo Terrace," is located on the same area and comes with Filipino/European cuisine. Less
