In Photos: The Dalaguetnon Beach

Since a big part of the southern town of Dalaguete lies along the coast (like most Cebu towns,) it is not very hard to understand why a big chunk of the Dalaguetnon life revolves around the ocean. Majority of its residents who live by the sea are fishermen or are involved in trade and business related to the big blue.

Check out the Obong beach – one of Dalaguete’s many public beaches that locals frequent for its charm and beauty.

The ruins of an old watchtower (I believe) stands on this beach in Obong, Dalaguete.

Sitting in the shade and taking in the amazing view.

A fishing boat docked on the beach served as a ‘deposit’ box for the bags and other stuff of the people who were swimming in the water.

Dalaguete’s white beach looking all natural and pretty. The beach is only several hundred meters away from the famed Obong Spring of Barangay Obong, Dalaguete.

Another view of the watchtower ruins.

A fisherman arrives at the beach. He was met by locals who wanted to see the catch.

These two ladies (beach-goers) managed to grab a bagful of fish.

The ladies were lucky to get their hands on these fresh catch!

  1. Nice one bai lander.

    By the way, this watchtower is one of the more than 12 complex of watchtowers built by Fr. Julian Bermejo as part of the defense system of southern Cebu against Moro (muslim) invaders.

    Panahaon pa diay sa katsila, uso na diay ang mga Abu Sayaff sa una?

  2. There is another watch tower just in front of the town church.

    A local enterpreneur has turned it into a refreshment parlour, where you can laze out, have some ice cream or ice cold beer, or sing karaoke.

  5. Preserving the heritage and culture of Dalaguete is one of our Tourism’s project. I must say,those wathctowers,1 in Obong Spring and the other 1 fronting the St. William parish, are considered jewels in every Dalaguitnons History. I bet historians knew a lot about Dalaguete. Anyways, i was also able to witness the Utanon Festival (being the vegetable basket of Cebu)and twas superb….i never thought it was that expectacular..i’m so proud of it . it was like attending Sinulog in a small place,but the contingents were all nice and wonderful..Basta, i am always counting on my return to my hometown.
