ONE CASITA BORBON BEACH FARM, BORBON
A unique beach resort-cum-farm in Cebu Province, Philippines, can be found at Barangay Tabunan, Borbon.
It is located 82 kilometers north of Cebu City, the capital of this Visayan province.
The beach resort farm spreads in a 4-hectare property that aims to introduce farming as a method to connect and be in harmony with nature.
It is a private and an exclusive resort. This farm is located above sea level and overlooks the nice beach and sea of Borbon Town.
The management of the beach farm has personnel from its local families who are being taught to prepare buko (young coconut) pie, cassava cake, and other delicious native delicacies.
THE BEACH, FARM AND ATTRACTIONS / FUN ACTIVITIES
Being a farm and a farm by the beach makes this resort much more interesting. Yes, there are lots of fun activities you can do. Let’s start with …
Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Just like in most Cebu beach resort areas, you can enjoy diving or just snorkeling in the waters of Borbon. Clean and fecund marine life offers you amazing colors and various underwater life – ghostpipe fishes, soft and hard corals, crabs, etc.
One kilometer white sand beach front
If you love just being on a beach, this is a great and right place for you. You can stroll, feel, and inhale the fresh and healing breeze coming from the ocean. You can also enjoy sunbathing and anything under the sun or the shade of coconut palms.
In the farm
And, if you love farming or just want to try how it feels like doing it, you are allowed to join the farmers in harvesting their produce, such as picking ears of corn, pulling up sweet potatoes from the soil, etc.
Or, you can learn how to milk goats, or maybe just feed them. And if you are an environmentally conscious and concern person, you have the chance to plant trees. Everything sounds very interesting to me, anyway!
PLANTS & ANIMALS
One Casita beach farm has various plants and animals being raised. As mentioned already, they have goats and other poultry.
It has a plantation of banana, papaya, and other sorts of plants and trees.
