One of our favorite places to go to relax, swim, snorkel or have lunch is Kamia Bay Resort. Mainly because it's only 6 minutes away from our home via banca, or 9 minutes by car.

Being only about 45 minutes from Puerto Princesa city Center, it presents a very nice day trip without sacrificing 3 hours round trip to swim, snorkel or scuba dive as going to Sabang will take. Hotel Centro in town can book packages if you are a group or you can just toodle down National Highway south approximately 35 kilometers and then turn left into the property. You will be asked to park your car there as there is no parking in the resort area. An air conditioned van will fetch you and your group and it's only a 2 minute ride down to the resort on the bay.

The food is very good as well. Mostly native Filipino dishes and lately they have added an exotic dish from the jellyfish in Turtle bay. Since they had to remove so many to protect the swimmers, they thought of a clever way to recycle them, they made a fresh jellyfish cerviché!

I like the Sinigang, Tinolang Manok, Chicken Ara Tulan, well actually, I like most everything on the menu that we have tried.

There is no entrance fee if you just want to go eat at the restaurant and enjoy the marvelous views of the bay and distant Thumb Peak. If you want to avail of the swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking to name a few activities, then they have specific charges for each activity. If you don't have your own gear, you can rent them there. They also have mangrove tours and the scuba diving packages include 10 diving spots outside the bay in the pristine and clear waters. The water in the bay tendy to be a little murky because the fresh water estuaries run into the sea water bay and there are muddy mangroves on the opposite side of the bay.

Kamia Bay Resort Restaurant has excellent food and the service is good and staff helpful and very friendly.


Kayaks are available for rent to paddle around the mangroves in turtle bay.

The views are superb and utterly relaxing.

This has been turned into a massage pavilion on the water. How relaxing can you get?

Lounge right on the sand by the water's edge.

They have floating balsa tables which you can rent for a day or 4 hours.

Stuffed Squid. Never over cooked.

Chile Crab - yes be prepared to get your hands sticky, but so worth it.

Yummy crispy pata with fried kangkong and potatoes. Frankly I am not fond of the kangkong and potatoes as they don't turn out crispy like the pata.
Comfort rooms for men and women. The main gripe I have about the showers is that they are not covered, but I am told they will remedy this in the near future.
