iWanderlust: Glan

GLAN, Sarangani – The coastal town of Glan is roughly 70 kilometers away from the city of General Santos. The town boasts its historical heritage and its beautiful beaches. It is one of the oldest towns in the Southern Mindanao.

It is a first class Municipality with a population of 106,518 having 31 rural barangays.

Let get to the point then, I went to Coco Beach Resort located at Barangay Gumasa. Since I was alone and I was not planning to get a cottage, so I did not brought my things out of my car. It was a super hot afternoon so I decided to daydream while waiting for the sun to be shrouded with the rainclouds.

The Coco Beach Resort prices:

    • Entrance Fee – PhP 50.00* per person
    • Small Cottage – PhP 500.00
    • Big Cottage – PhP 1,000.00 up.to PhP 1,500.00

*if you chose not to stay in a cottage an additional fee of PhP 100.00 on top of the Entrance Fee.

They also offer private air-conditioned rooms for those who wants to stay overnight. (I wasn’t able to ask for the price)

How to get there:

  • You can get there by a UV Epxress bound for Glan (Poblacion) from KCC Transport Terminal and on that point, you can hire a habal-habal on your way to Gumasa. The ETA from GenSan is around 60 to 90 minutes which depends from time to time.

  • You can also book a rent-a-car from General Santos and drive all the way to Gumasa. For more details visit their Facebook page or you can contact them at (+63) 0939 929 1067.
