Last on our list of places to visit in Bucas Grande was Hidden Island Resort. We did a quick stopover here after our boatman Kuya Kenny offered to drop us off while he fetched some fuel for his boat.
Hidden Island Resort is a charming resort that is tucked in a cove somewhere in Brgy. Doña Helen. It caters to large middle to high income groups. They offer more rooms than Club Tara and their rates are much cheaper. The resort design is very simple yet stylish. The resort has a restaurant, meters and meters of foot bridges, aquariums, and offers transfers via boat and sea plane.

My friend and I haven’t really explored the resort as we got hooked in the aquariums placed in between each room. I think we spent around an hour taking photos of the different marine life. There were baby sharks, turtles, starfish, and several species of fish. There was even a very large turtle (I’m not sure about the species) that my friend thought was fake because it was too huge to be real. Minutes later, it swam towards the surface to catch air, as if telling my friend, “Hey, I’m real.” Haha.
Before leaving the resort we were asked to pay 50 pesos each as payment for the day tour entrance fee. Akala ko makakatakas na. Haha.
The resort is located in Brgy. Doña Helen, Socorro, Surigao del Norte. For inquiries, you may contact the following numbers:
