Greenwater: A Worthwhile Stop in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental

A recent work-related travel took us from Bukidnon to Cagayan to de Oro City and finally to Balingasag, Misamis Oriental. It was a gloomy day, with the rain drizzling every now and then. Thankfully, the inspection work in Balingasag, the last stop of our itinerary, was done before 2 PM. As we traveled back home, we passed by Greenwater Seafoods Market and Restaurant along the highway of Brngy. DanaoJasaan, Misamis Oriental. We decided to check it out and unwind before embarking on another the long trip back to Bukidnon.

It was my first time to visit the place and I immediately liked its seaside ambiance. The restaurant is built like a huge open cottage. Its nipa shingles roof and wooden trusses and beams contrast with the concrete posts and floor slab. A few wooden tables, a pair of steel framed wooden chairs and plenty of monoblocks are available for travelers who wish to drink or dine inside the resto.






Greenwater Seafoods Market and Restaurant offers a generous view of Macajalar Bay. I supposed it is a nice place to watch the sunset. Agutayan Island, a sandbar which boasts of white sands and an excellent dive spot, can be seen at the distance. However, the limited capability of my Stamobile Up Snap camera could not zoom close to its beauty so I have to settle for this shot.



Down below the restaurant is a short and narrow strip of beach with smooth round rocks and pebbles instead of fine sands. Concrete and rubber barriers were built probably to break strong waves and ensure guests' safety. There are small cottages suited for day picnics while private rooms are also available for those who wish to stay overnight.





After 2 rounds of ice cold beer, the food we ordered was finally served. Fish tinola, sinuglaw (a combination of fish kinilaw and grilled pork liempo) and grilled bangus were laid on the table. The dishes were excellently prepared and the freshness of the ingredients, especially the bangus, is evident. No surprise though as the fish came from next town Balingasag which is now known as the "bangus capital" of Northern Mindanao.






Greenwater Seafoods and Restaurant is indeed a worthwhile rest stop if you are traveling in this side of Misamis Oriental. Aside from their tasty and affordable food and drinks, you also get to enjoy the view of Macajalar Bay and Agutayan Island, And if you have more time, you can also relax and swim at their small beach for a minimal fee.
