When I visited the sleepy little town of Alcoy a few weeks ago, I was only able to take pictures of the town church. We had to hurry because it was getting late and we still had to visit Argao. Well, today, I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of more than just the town church – I got to meet for the first time the famed Tingko Beach. Tingko Beach is a public white-sand beach in Daan Lungsod, Alcoy. Located approximately 94 kilometers from Cebu City, Tingko Beach is visible when traveling southwards via the South National Road.
Tingko Beach is popular among locals and out-of-towners not only because of its pristine white sand but also because beachgoers do not have to spend a single penny to enjoy it. Beach houses, both private and barangay-run, are also available just a few meters from the beach.
