QUICK GUIDE: Isla Jardin Del Mar in Glan, Sarangani

2015 • 06 • 07

An impressive kilometer-long curve of sandy coast adjacent to the more popular Gumasa Cove in the municipality of Glan, Sarangani, Isla Jardin Del Mar remains an invitingly unspoiled beach. The sand isn’t as white as some, but it’s softer—especially on the far side where fewer people are concentrated. The length of the beach allows for a few peaceful pocket hideaways if you’re looking to avoid the crowds.
