Little did we know there’s another hidden place in the south of Negros Island, a concealed paradise that for some, this spot doesn’t even ring a bell but it’s one of the must visit destinations in Negros Oriental.
Introducing the La Limar Beach Resort in La Libertad, Negros Oriental. This resort is being managed by the Local Government Unit of La Libertad. For individuals or groups looking for a serene place to unwind and get some relaxation this is the place for you. You will definitely love their infinity pool overlooking the seas of Tañon strait. Everything is so peaceful that you have nothing to think of but to enjoy swimming and taking photos to every corner of it. And Oh! before I forget, the beach has a stony seashore so not good for swimming.

- Common comfort room for dorm type, and thumbs up for the management because it is well maintained, yet I have to apologize for breaking one of the faucet in their shower room. It wasn’t my intention to do so, it’s just that I think the faucet is a bit old that when I accidentally hit it with the pail it broke down and water never stopped pouring.
