Isla Jardin del Mar is a beach resort in the municipality of Glan in the province of Sarangani. It offers different types of accommodations — from unostentatious open-air cottages to modest single or duplex rooms and more upscale suites.
The waters are very inviting and perfect for both swimming and snorkeling, although you’ll have to wear proper beach gear to protect yourself from sea urchins. On the far ends of the shoreline, there are walkways where natural rock formations stand and where you can see a spectacular view of the Celebes Sea.
You can also experience the annual SarBay or Sarangani Bay Festvial here every summer since Isla Jardin del Mar is just a few kilometers away from the event grounds. The festival, which is hailed as the biggest beach event in the southernmost part of the country, features sports competitions, parties, concerts, and other enjoyable activities to indulge tourists during the days-long event.
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.
