THE HAPPIEST and MOST Picturesque Getaway spot is finally in the Philippines!! Luckily for us Cebuanos , it is in our city - CEBU!!! Specifically Mactan, Cebu :D

Jasmin and I were privileged enough to be invited to visit #HAPPYBEACHPH prior to its grand opening and well, let’s just say that Happy Beach is definitely worth the experience!

Upon arriving Angasil Port , which is the entry for Happy Beach, the staff from the resort welcomed us with hospitality and extreme friendliness. They then invited us to the boat which would take us to the resort.

The mood of the people from the boat and when we arrived were extremely “HAPPY”. It’s like they take you to a completely happy island which would give you no choice but to smile!

As we stepped down, we saw how beautiful the resort was. Every area had a color scheme and it was really well thought of. It made you seem like you were In a completely different paradise - truly beautiful! The natural resources were still there of course but Happy Beach added some artificial trees to fill up some areas, which made it look even better!

We were very excited and we took tons of photos ! We even made our own video to make everyone take a glimpse on how beautiful this resort is. It's not just a resort but an escape and destination so it's really worth going.

Aside from having colorful trees, an inflatable island, and color-schemes around the area, the cabana rooms were also very well coordinated! The place is extremely instragrammable and picture friendly so don't forget to bring a camera!! Even the souvenir shop and restaurant have great color!! So you have no choice but to CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, everywhere in the resort! Truly a wondeful place.

Here are some few information about Happy Beach:


From the makers of Inflatable Island, and the team that brought you the iconic “Pink Bali Lounge” and the world famous “Unicorn Island" comes “The Happy Beach” boutique resort located in Mactan, Cebu aka your new permanent address this coming summer!

The Happy Jungle Lounge is the home of the rainbow trees and the dreamy pink pool.

Reserve one of the daybeds in this “rainbow jungle”.

Where is it located?

Happy Beach is located in east TAMBULI RESORT. Click the link to access google maps.

It is only 25-35 minutes away from the airport. You can take a car/grab or taxi to ANGASIL PORT, then ride the HAPPY BOATS to Happy Beach Cebu

How do we get there?

Guests can take a Car/Taxi/Grab to ANGASIL PORT

How much would it cost me?



From Cebu City, Commute

From SM City Cebu terminal, take a van going to Gaisano Island Mall Pusok Lapu-Lapu for only P25 (one way). From there you can take a multicab going to Maribago. From Maribago, go down Buyong Road and the cost would be approximately P20.

From SM City Cebu through Private Vehicles/Taxi/GRAB

Taking a GRAB from SM City Cebu to Angasil would cost around P446, A taxi cab can take around P350-500 depending on the amount of traffic at that time

From Mactan Airport through Private Vehicles/Taxi/GRAB

Taking a GRAB from Mactan International Airport to Angasil would cost around P225, A taxi cab can take around P150-P350 depending on the amount of traffic at that time

*Best to go as a group so that fare prices would be cheaper, it would be best to book a van too!


Once you get to ANGASIL you can take the HAPPY BOAT which would cost P50 roundtrip per person.
