Anino Kite Resort: Best Beach Resort on Cuyo Island

Posted on December 10, 2014

Anino Kite Resort (formerly Anino Retreat and Quijano Windsurfing Retreat) is the best beach resort on Cuyo Island, Palawan. The beach resort is located only a few kilometers from Cuyo Airport (serviced by twice weekly flights from Puerto Princesa) or 20-minutes by tricycle from Cuyo Port. I enjoyed a two-night complimentary stay at this seaside hideaway during my stay on the island.

Posted on October 12, 2014

During the 7th Siargao International Gamefishing Tournament from April 24 to 28, 2014 organized by One Corporate Grand Tours, I stayed at Bayud Beach Resort, a private enclave located along a deserted stretch of coastline at the town of General Luna. Located far away from the town center within a quiet seaside village, the resort’s location obviously has its pros and cons. While its remoteness makes it a bit inconvenient to visit town or catch public transportation, it lends toRead More
