My favorite getaway is Pearl Farm Resort, an 11-hectare resort nestled in Samal Island, just 45 minutes by boat from Waterfront Insular Hotel's port. Though overnight stays are relatively expensive, a day-tour can be enjoyed at just under PhP2,000 which already includes transportation, welcome drink, a dizzying array of culinary delight at the lunch buffet, and boat rides to and from its neighboring island, Malipano, which is a secluded island which has 11 villas of the Florendos. For day-travellers, boats leave for the city at 3:30PM.

It has 2 swimming pools. This one overlooking the Malipano Island, which you can visit for free, as often as you like during your whole stay. Boats can be readily availed - for free, if you want a more solitary sun-and-sand experience in Malipano.
