For local tourists and foreign tourists who want some time off from shopping at the city center, they can relax and unwind in the beaches found in Cagayan de Oro City. Though we can’t boast of white sandy beaches like that of Dakak and Boracay but the change of atmosphere, the soft wind against your face and the sound of the rushing waves is enough to make you relaxed and refreshed.
The nearest and the better beaches of the city are those found in Opol – Roan Beach, Maravillas Beach, Yasay Beach are among the many places you can go to. There is also a nice resort hotel along this beach area whre you can enjoy hotel service and amenities. But if you just want to hang out for an afternoon then the private beach resorts along the area will be okay. There are also other beaches at the Bayabas, Bonbon and Gusa, Cugman area but they’re not really good places to swim.
Then, if you really want to see white sandy beaches then I suggest you go further to Midway Beach Resorts or Dakak.
