Sarangani, Philippines, is one of the best-kept secrets of Mindanao. Part of the South Cotabato-Cotabato-Sultan Kudarat-Sarangani-General Santos (Soccsksargen) region, it is the ultimate destination for laidback tourists who want to travel with flair.
On top of many things alluring about Sarangani is Gumasa Beach in Glan, one of the best you could ever find in Mindanao. The long stretch of powdery white sand paradise is peaceful most days of the year, but when Sarbay Fest comes around on the third week of May, the beach line is filled with a party crowd. Other note-worthy attractions in the province include the majestic Sarangani Bay and the dive spots of Kapatagan-Lago, Tuka Marine Park, and South Point. Water activities might be blockbuster here, but you can also go on a cultural path to discover the local way of life by visiting the Lamlifew Village Museum, Tampat Shrine, and Glan Heritage Village.
Sarangani is about an hour's drive from the nearest airport in General Santos City. Aside from GenSan, you may also explore the nearby provinces of Sultan Kudarat, South Cotabato, and the Davao region to beef up your travel experience.
