Paradise Cove Beach Resort: The Fastest Rising Tourist Destination in Sibutad

Along with the rise of the new Sibutad Tourism Council, the municipality has starting to feature its beautiful highland landscape sceneries, like the Ilihan Peak and Gold Rush Hills and some hidden beach resorts in the long stretch of its coastal bay of Barangay Sawang. For a long time, Sibutad is known to be the home of the best seafoods in the province and the islet with crystal-clear water of Pinahon Island.

It still is.

But now, here comes the fastest rising tourist destination in the home of Kinhason Festival where you can spend a quick getaway with your family while being treated, taken-cared of and be served like a family. I am talking about the Paradise Cove Beach Resort.

I am very excited to write about this resort because the place has always been a fuss in my hometown ever since it was opened. Almost everybody’s celebrations are being held there. So, I got curious to see what’s the fuss is about.

How To Get There

Paradise Cove Beach Resort is a hidden gem situated in Barangay, Sawang of Sibutad, Zamboanga del Norte. It’s hidden yet it can be easily navigated because Sawang Elementary School has become its major landmark.

By Private Vehicle

If you’re coming from Dipolog City, Paradise Cove can be travel by coursing through the coastal road of Dapitan City for about 40 minutes in a private vehicle ride. Just ask the locals where the Elementary School is and there’s a signage going in to the resort.

By Bus

Still coming from Dipolog City, riding a Rural Transit bus is your less-hassle choice if you’re a commuter because it’s the only bus company operating from and to the municipality of Sibutad.

The trip will approximately take about 1 hour for 90.00/person one way. It’s highly recommended that your drop-off point should be in the Sibutad Terminal. Then from there, ride a local transportation called habal-habal or bao bao going straight to the resort for 100.00/person each one way.

  • If you plan on staying overnight, short orders like ‘silogs’ are available in the morning for breakfast.

The person who manages the resort is so creative when it comes to event organising. It’s also something that most tourists here are looking forward to. One of the main event that they just launched is the Beer and Barbecue Night every Friday & Saturday.

For alternative route, you may request to the management to drop by and experience Pinahon Island. We requested this route for the first time during the mountains to sea tour in Sibutad. For more information about this day tour and wish to follow our DIY itinerary, the link below may help you.

Things to Expect in Paradise Cove Beach

Let’s burst your bubble for a sec! Of course, I want you to have the best time when you visit Paradise Cove Beach Resort. With all the colors and beautiful stuff you’d see on photos, here are some things that you might need to know first before packing up and traveling all the way to this paradise:


  • Swimming and the beach view is best experienced when the sea water level is high and it’s usually high during mornings until lunch time. So if you arrive in the afternoon, don’t expect to see the best view of the beach.
  • Considering the rising numbers of tourists and the small area, the resort is usually jam-packed with people especially during weekend. However the management is doing a great job to control the visitors. Make sure to always book ahead of time!
  • Smart and Globe network is accessible within the resort. You can call and send text messages, but the internet data is pretty slow.

    Nakakamiss magbeach omg. I dunno how to fight this feeling talaga that you really have the urge to go out pero di pwede.

    This resort is really lovely. Seeing posts like this during the quarantine makes me a little sad. I realized that my summer would have been different if there was no quarantine.

    I agree with Karla, nakaka-miss yung easy access ng mga beach destination sa Philippines. I would love to visit them when we get back. Do you think they are operating even nowadays?
