Salagdoong Beach


A few kilometres past the town of Maria, Salagdoong Beach is popular with rowdy day trippers. There's a half-open water park that has seen much better days, and you can jump into the ocean from 6m to 12m concrete platforms built into the rocks. There's accommodation and a noisy restaurant here, but we wouldn't recommend either.
