Sugar Beach Sweetness in Negros, Philippines
Much like our favorite spot, Port Barton on the island of Palawan, getting to Driftwood Village on Sugar Beach was a bit of a journey. After a long bus ride we had to board a small boat to access the remote Sugar Beach. The beach's name is derived from the brown sugar like appearance of the sand. We bummed around on the beach for a few days, enjoyed the restaurants at neighboring resorts, did some hiking, and even had a chance to hang out and make friends with some of the locals. The many nipa-style huts that make up Driftwood Village were all made of local materials and were a great way to experience Sugar Beach. The sunsets coupled with the smooth glass like surface of the South China Sea were a perfect way to end the day. Apart from enjoying all that Mother Nature and the beach life at Driftwood had to offer, we met many fellow travelers who were quick with a smile and stories of their own journeys. We loved our stay here, the people we met, and would love to visit again if we ever find ourselves in Negros.
