Balanban Point is about fifteen minutes boat ride further south from Campomones Bay and whilst enjoying a day of island hopping, complimented with the consumption of a few beers, we stumbled across Balanban Point, which was a totally deserted inlet, almost like a lagoon, with white sand and swaying palm trees.
Balanban Point was eerily secluded with the only sign of life being a couple of dogs playing in the gentle waves lapping up on to the sand. This is the sort of place you would only do a half day tour to, unless you wanted to pitch a tent.
Sometimes at these normally secluded beaches, one might find a vendor selling candy and cigarettes, and maybe a few nipa huts and even some small homes with children playing on the beach but here, there was absolutely nothing. This was a little strange as this area was still part of mainland of Negros Occidental, and being so beautiful, it was amazing that it wasn’t more populated.

Balanban Point – a totally secluded beach of total peace and serenity. Where are the tourists?
