The Ultimate Travel Guide to Lakawon Island, Negros Occidental (Rates & How To Get There)
Lakawon Island Resorts and Spa or simply known as Lakawon Island was dubbed as the "Boracay of Negros," making it as a must-visit destination in the Negros Island Region.
It's a 13-hectare banana-shaped island located off the coast of Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.
The word "Lakawon" was derived from the word "walk," a Cebuano word which means "to walk." During low tide, one can literally walk to and from the main island on the sandbar.
The island is now attracting both local and foreign tourists as it was already fully developed. Summer or not, a lot of people still visit this beautiful island.
Lakawon has pristine water and gorgeous white sand similar to Boracay. It's a perfect place to relax and forget about the stressful life in the city.
A number of celebrities have already visited the island, including Angelica Panganiban and Solenn Heussaff. Lakawon was also featured on GMA-7's "Kapuso Mo Jessica Sojo" and some of the world's most popular Facebook pages.
One of the popular attractions in the island is their TawHai floating bar, known as the biggest floating bar in Asia. The entrance fee is at 250.00 with one free drink.
Banana boat is also now available at the Island!
