Punta Bulata, Negros Island

Bask in the private white sand beach of Punta Bulata Resort & Spa in Negros Island, Philippines. Surrounded with towering Coconut trees, the hidden haven is situated 154 kilometres south of Bacolod City. The breathtaking sanctuary is recognized as one of Negros Island’s finest and whitest beaches. The island is a 10-minute boat ride away to Danjugan Island.

Danjugan Island is 1.5 kilometers long and 0.5 kilometers at its widest point, has 5 lagoons and is covered with limestone forests providing asylum to many wildlife species that struggle to exist in the mainland.

What once used to be a threatened and over-fished area is now a protected sanctuary with a dazzling array of marine and terrestrial life. Today, the island serves as an outdoor classroom for students, a research area for conservationists, and a haven for tourists eager to experience nature at its purest.

Danjugan Island is a project of The Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc.
