A cluster of cozy cottages, fine white sands, tall tropical trees, turquoise water, and limestone islets— things you probably did not dream of until you looked at them like a postcard.
Located in Bucas Grande, Surigao del Norte, Timi Private Beach offers you a true vacation home that is unlike any other. In here, you will never see commercial-type hotel structures but you surely will experience living in simple but cozy kubo-like cottages.
Below each cottage is the lounging area, while upstairs is the bedroom. Each cottage has a private bath too.
Kitchen is open and it has everything you need for cooking. The place is attended by hospitable staff and if you like, they can arrange a cook for you at P500 a day or P800 per day if you have more than five companions.
Mykonos-style swimming pool is in place and it has a space for your early morning and early evening yoga. This private beach offers 3G connection for internet browsing.
Lights, electric fans, and minor kitchen appliances are powered by solar panels 24 hours a day. Talk about clean energy source!
You can also enjoy other activities such as sea and lake swimming, snorkeling, caving, hiking, kayaking, star gazing or night swimming.
Make sure to book early flight going in, since it is no longer safe to cross the water by 4pm onwards. Also, the coastguard will not allow boats to sail anymore.
