I have walked through the white sandy beach of hope.  And experienced the serenity and tranquility the locals speak of.  I have listened to the surf’s tales of  love and sorrow.  Because I have been to that island garden by the sea.

Last Saturday, Lyle and I traveled all the way to Gumasa, Glan to witness the soft opening of Sarangani’s newest vacation destination. With us to witness the event were the beautiful bloggers of Soccskargen, Go Sarangani Travel’s Michelle Solon and her friend, John Achavel.

Isla Jardin del Mar is the newest addition to Glan’s white sand beach resorts.  Boasting of a 750-meter stretch of glorious white shoreline and azure waters, Isla Jardin del Mar is suitable  for romantic walks and every imaginable water sport.   Furthermore, the sprawling 34-hectare land area which includes a lagoon, provides more room for beach games,  fishing,  and mountain treks.

Neatly lining the resort’s beachfront are open cottages perfect for family outings and get-togethers.  And for those who intend to stay overnight, Isla Jardin del Mar rents out a selection of airconditioned and non-airconditioned cottages that will fit your budget.   The resort also has a restaurant so guests can have delicious meals even during unplanned weekend or day trips.

Isla Jardin del Mar is   owned and managed by the same group behind Sydney Hotel and Isla Parilla.  For inquiries and reservations, call Sydney Hotel at 552-5479 to 81.

My heartfelt thanks to the following: Mr. and Mrs. Marfin Tan, Ms. Wanchin Tan-Delfino, Michelle Lopez Solon, Avel Manansala,  Orman Manansala, Gilbert Tan, John Achavel, Jinky and Arnel Borela, Sheng and Ric Dumalay, Donna Mae Congson, and Mandi Nicolas.

    We had so much fun, didn’t we? Now who says we have to go to Boracay to enjoy white-sand beaches?

    Thanks to the Tan Family of GenSan and the Provincial Government of Sarangani for sharing to us this beach paradise.

    Thanks for this post Brendel. See you around these spots again soon!
