Review: YSLA Beach Camp and Eco Resort in Camiguin


More than just sight-seeing and picture-taking, it is the self-enriching experience of each particular destination which make traveling a worthwhile passion. Immersing in local culture and traditions, learning a new language, trying out exotic dishes and staying in unique accommodations all contribute to memorable moments only traveling can give. One unforgettable and exciting travel experience my family recently had was staying for two (2) nights at YSLA Beach Camp Camp and Eco Resort in the beautiful island province of Camiguin.
YSLA Beach Camp & Eco Resort started operation early 2017 and is one of the newest resort in the island born of fire. Located in Barangay Agoho, Mambajao, it is about 200 meters from the national highway.


The resort sits on a quiet compound with wide grassy lawn and tall coconut trees. It offers a very relaxing ambiance perfectly suited for those who are seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.



We love the fun and colorful signages posted all over the place. My kids had fun memorizing the Beach Camp Rules.

The unique thing about Ysla Beach Camp is their glamping tent accommodations. Glamping is short for "glamorous camping", and it means getting the raw experience of outdoor camping without sacrificing some modern comforts. As such glamping tents are usually spacious, well-ventilated and comfortable.


At Ysla, all tents are airconditioned and provided with full-sized airbeds, pillows and blankets. Each tent also has a rustic toilet and bath built outside and equipped with hot and cold shower, towels and toiletries.


We were booked at Tent Hibok-Hibok (Php2,500/night), a medium-sized tent with 2 queen-sized airbeds and is good for 4 persons. It is very spacious and comfortably fits me, my wife and our two kids who got very excited as it was their first time to stay in a tent. 


A few steps from our tent is the elevated outdoor pool. As my kids love to swim, we spent most of our time here. I found it to be the perfect place to hang out and chill as it is shaded by coconut trees and the ocean can be seen nearby. The pool though has a uniform depth of about 5 feet so younger kids need to be closely monitored when swimming.


Adjacent to the resort is a beach which offers a view of the famous White Island.


They also have a bar near the pool, but it was closed the whole time we were at the resort.


Ysla Beach Camp has its own mini-restaurant. We ate here for lunch and breakfast and tried out their fish and chips, fish tinola, longanisa and beef tapa. Food choices are still limited with prices ranging from Php150++ to Php200++. They also sell ice cold beer at Php50 each.


Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Ysla Beach Camp & Eco Resort. Staying in a glamping tent was a very memorable experience especially for our kids. We did sleep soundly in their airbeds and even though it rained on the second night, we were comfortably dry inside the tent. My kids also had a great time swimming on the elevated pool. The staff are all friendly and courteous, making us feel at home in the resort. At night, the place was very quiet and and provided the perfect setting for relaxation after a long day of island tour.
