EXPERIENCING LAKAWON ISLAND | TRAVEL GUIDE (2017)

Another treasure in Negros Island which is now being developed  is the Lakawon Island.

The Island, a 15-hectare banana-shaped island about 3 km off Cadiz City. The island is not so  popular among Pinoys outside the province maybe because it, not that really developed as compared to one of the Negros’ best: Sipalay.

Lakawon has a gorgeous white beach consisting of coarse corals. The lovely beach  is  covered with coconut trees .

Lakawon Island Resort is far different from what it used to be . There were only a few cottages then, and no aircon-cottages . But today there are already rooms that are air conditioned with more amenities of course. But I must say, Lakawon needs to add more features and facilities to make their guests happier.

There were not many activities to do on the island except swimming and some related water activities like boating, snorkeling, and jet skiing . There were not many recreational facilities as well. The resort is great for unwinding and relaxation.

For those who have known Lakawon in the past, this resort used to be the destinations of people who doesn’t have the budget to go to Boracay. However, the resort underwent some development and I should say their prices goes with it as well.

Please remember, you will be charged with a corkage for any food and drinks that you will be bringing in the Island – including bottled water. For more information about their prices, please refer on their published tariff below.

Getting there :

The access to the island is via Barangay Cadiz Viejo. A motor boat owned by the resort usually takes visitors to the island. The ride is about 30 minutes.

From Bacolod City, travel by private car will take just over an hour. There are also buses plying the Northern Negros which stops at Cadiz Viejo.
