Elysia Beach Resort

Sorsogon, Philippines

Donsol has come a long way since its days as a provincial fishing village. This newly built 15-room beachside lodge is away from the crowds yet only five minutes from our boarding area for swimming with whale sharks. Rooms are basic, with no telephone or TV, but they are clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. The lodge is located at the far end of the black-sand beach, adding to its privacy. Elysia Beach Resort is the only lodging in Donsol with a pool.
