The idea of a beach getaway has been romanticized over and over in pop culture. It is hard to break the trope, what with the colorful skies, beautiful sunrise and sunset, clear white sand, inviting waters, and a sea of broken-hearted bikini-clad girls and speedo-wearing guys looking to get their own fix of failed love remedy at the coastline.

For fans of Filipino rom-com movies, you may remember the movie “Camp Sawi” released in 2016 starring Andi Eigenmann, Bela Padilla, Yassi Pressman, Arci Munoz, and Kim Molina. The movie was shot in Kota Beach, Bantayan Island. They have left their infamous sign by the resort’s driveway which has spawned thousands of Instagram and Facebook summer shots.

There’s no doubt that the film helped increase the popularity and patronage of the resort on a national scale, but Kota Beach has always been a favorite among locals and foreigners looking to have a great time in Cebu. Its own beauty and allure have captivated tourists for decades, and it is easy to see why.
