Belmar Eco Park and Beach Resort is a tropical getaway in Sitio Kabog, Brgy. Kapatan in the town of Glan. Its strategic location provides visitors with views of Sarangani's two main natural landmarks: Sarangani Bay and Mt. Matutum.
Fully airconditioned rooms and cottages (as well as non-airconditioned options) tucked in lush, tropical foliage and named after the town's pioneers await visitors in the resort. It also features its own restaurant, bar, and coffee shop where the freshest catch of seafood and other popular family recipes such as Manok Tinibuok (whole chicken soup with lemongrass) and Manok Pinahapa (grilled whole native chicken) are served, complete with the smell and sound of nature around. For those looking for light snacks, their specialty Buko Halo-Halo and Buko Salvaro cannot be missed.
The resort also has a children's playground, making it a family-friendly accomodation. Not too far away is the famous Gumasa Beach of Glan, dubbed as the "Boracay of the South" and is the venue of the SarBay Festival.
Best time to visit
It's best to schedule a stay here during the summer season in the Philippines, which usually starts in March and ends in May. The third week of May is also when the locals hold the annual Sarangani Bay or SarBay Festival.
