Punta Ballo is in Sipalay and is right on the Sulu Sea, with a one kilometer long white sand beach, rugged limestone cliffs with great ocean views, and some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever see.
There are a few foreign owned Dive Resorts in this area that have comfortable accommodation, and great food with the beach being ideal from swimming and snorkeling and of course, scuba diving.
Although there are a few foreign tourists around this area, it still remains very much “undiscovered” and really is one of the Philippines hidden gems. Hopefully, it will be a long time before people catch on and take away what makes this place so amazing.

Punta Ballo beach with its pristine white sand knocked me off my feet when I first saw it. I remember thinking to myself “why isn’t this place crawling with tourists?!”

Punta Ballo beach at sunset – absolutely jaw dropping experience whilst quietly sipping a few cocktails. This isn’t even an island – this is still the Negros mainland!
