If you are in search of a quiet paradise this Summer, check out the white sand beaches in the island of Camiguin, south of the Philippines, and stay at beachfront Casa de Cutab Guesthouse in Sagay.

I was surprised when owner Grace Cutab shared about this Casa. In 2012, after we organized a series of anti-violence-against-women activities, Grace invited me and my travel buddy to her hometown in Camiguin for a couple of days’ stay, highlighted by lanzones picking and corn harvesting. Their then humble abode was a two-storey house – actually the cute second floor almost looked like an attic and the entire structure looked like a simple cottage. Looking at recent photos, I see that everything has changed since then.

The rocky beach in Sagay, the one where we walked with aqua shoes on, now has an infinity pool. I’d love to return to that place now, and to

those mornings with their dogs lazily lounging on the beachfront.

What didn’t change though is the passion of Grace for arts and crafts as well as her family’s interest in promoting ecotourism.

If you browse their Facebook page, you’d see its coordination with the Camiguin Tourism Association and  its sustainable projects and involvement. For one, Casa de Cutab is the technology provider of a fiberglass boat making project, a DOLE-assisted livelihood program in Camiguin.

The guesthouse not only promotes itself or the travel destinations in Camiguin but also the culture of the place.
