One of the cheapest local beaches in town. Who would expect your P50 pesos is paid for the entrance fee and the cottage? But sad to say they're only open for day use. It has nearby barbeque stalls and a small store. If you're lucky enough to witness a boat arrives from fishing, you can buy and pay for the barbeque stall and cook it. 

It was called Hermit's Cove because there's a Legend saying that once an old Hermit lived in the area and has unexplained mysteries.
