Punta Ballo Is The Best Beach In Negros!
Punta Ballo is in Sipalay and is right on the Sulu Sea, with a one-kilometre-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 snorkelling 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?!”
