Tranquil, good diving & really off the beaten track
Could become a hotspot for tourists ...
Sipalay: Negros' Hidden Beauty
When you are in Island, you'll appreciate the place more if you'll go boating. In langub, there are other parts of the place that needs to be explored. Boating is also the time where you can reflect and thank God for the beauty of nature and bond with friends. So it is a great opportunity that shouldn't be missed.more
We rented snorkeling gear at Driftwood Village and headed out to sea with a pump boat. We got the local to show us Julienne's Wreck, a ship that split in half and sunk. When snorkeling in the open sea, its much better if you go early in the morning, not at around noon where the waves are bigger. As the boat rocked, my brother, my sister and I took...more
Getting a massage in Sipalay was probably one of the best things to do. Driftwood Village offers full body massages for only P350 an hour. You are led to a small cabana in the resort and given towels to cover yourself while they massage you. The atmosphere is very conducive for a massage and you can take a nap while they're at it.more

We ate at one of the restaurants/stalls here in food park, the name was Patricia's I think and we had tasteless barbecued chicken. Haven't tried the other restaurants though. We also ordered fried rice but what I got was fried rice with scrambled eggs. I mean, who asked for the egg? It was weird. None yet.more
My family had lunch at Driftwood Village resort and ordered different foods. Refer below for what we ordered. The place had a really nice ambiance, we ate at the loft they created where a long piece of driftwood hung from the ceiling for our table. We also had a pretty view of the sea. We tried the Spaghetti al Gorgonzola(cheese pasta, Tinolang...more
The lights were out in the resort which we stayed in, so my dad, my brother, my sister and I decided to go on a drinking spree at the resort next to ours, Sulu Sunset. Fortunately, the owner had a generator so the place was pretty bright, lights everywhere and there was music. Although I could hardly remember what it was, I'm sure it was foreign.
Dress Code: No dress code, my family and I were wearing the same clothes we wore since that afternoon.
Closest airport´s are Bacalod and Dumaguete, land transportation probably a little better from Bacalod, but there are some interresting places between Dumaguete and Sipalay (Apo island, Tambobo bay). From Clark the closest airport is probably Cebu, from where you can fly to Bacalod or Dumaguete or take a speedboat to Dumaguete. Or take a Philtranco...more
Since my family and I stayed at the city proper and wanted to go to Sugar Beach again, we asked around and got some valuable information from our hotel's receptionist. She told us to make a left(from the City) when we see this building with a name "Montilla" on it and go straight. We did as she said and found a bridge. The bridge, when we came, was...more
Driftwood Village, a resort in Sipalay, let us rent snorkeling gear and a pump boat. It would be much better if you let the staff know if you want to rent their gear and boat before hand so that there would be no conflicts to schedules since they also ferry their guests to and from the resort.more
Most tourists spend their times lounging on the beaches, sipping cocktails at the bars or eating the food in the restaurants offered, but what these tourists miss are the hidden attractions that locals can show you. My dad has a fondness for talking to the locals, he talked to little kids and we were taken into the barrio where we were led into a cave full of stalactites and stalagmites. Cool? Yes!
The long stretch of sand in Langub has many resorts and most of them have put up volleyball nets. Getting a tan while playing is absolutely refreshing!
Equipment: All you need is a volley ball, and that's not so hard to bring. I'm sure the resorts also have equipment that you can rent.
