Sugar Beach Travel Guide

For those who love to lounge on the beach and swim in the sea, Sugar Beach is a little piece of paradise, enticing visitors, who return year after year.

Like many of the top resorts in the Philippines, the atmosphere in Sugar Beach is extravagant. There are plenty of beach bars here serving everything from fruit cocktails to glasses of the local firewater, while western food is served alongside more traditional dishes.

Most of the action takes place right on the beach, and many people prefer to lay back and soak up the sun. Water sports are also popular, and there are plenty of good scuba diving and snorkeling spots nearby.

Most of the accommodation lining the beach is owned by German and Swiss hoteliers. Although aimed at those with a big budget and expensive tastes, there is a selection of more modest accommodation available closer to the town.

Getting There & Away

The easiest way to get to Sugar Beach is from Bacolod, which is a 5-hour bus or jeepney ride away. Bacolod has a large airport with regular flights from Manila’s international airport (1 hour). There are also regular buses to Bacolod from towns and cities such as Sagay (2 hours).
