Gumasa Beach

At the southernmost tip of the Philippines lies the town of Glan, Sarnagani Province, which boasts of pristine shorelines dotted with strips of powdery white-sand beach resorts facing the Celebes Sea.  Gumasa is one of these beaches and has been regarded as one of the Philippines' best beaches.

A short ride from the town center is the famed strip of powdery white-sand shorelines of Glan, one of the Philippines' best beaches. The now world-renowned beach line of Gumasa boasts of many resorts that offer overnight stay on well-appointed beach cottages, villas and hotel rooms.

Gumasa is best enjoyed via an overnight stay. Guests can come in the afternoon and marvel at the setting sun which regularly provides a majestic sight of the explosion of colors upon the horizon while feasting on the fresh catch of the fisherman living near the resorts. The cool and calm sea in the early morning will surely relax and de-stress urban dwellers.
