Bacolod: Punta Taytay

Punta Taytay is a coastal community to the south of Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. Being around a 20 minute drive from the city and facing west, it is a great place to catch the Negrense sunset in the south. 


Although I've been living in Bacolod City for most of my life, I only recently discovered Punta Taytay. The beach itself isn't that clean and the sand is black, but the breeze is good and the shoreline is broad. It is also home to a thriving fishing community and you can see a good number of fishermen at all times of the day doing what men of the sea usually do before they set sail.

You can just park your car at one of the many resorts around the area (Entrance Fee is around Php 20 per person where we parked) and walk towards the beach. There are many huts around the area selling drinks (both soft and hard) and grilled food.

Let's see what this area has to offer in the future as I will definitely be going back to take more photos.

(On the other hand, if you are from the north of Bacolod, you can catch the sunset at Brgy. Balaring, Silay City. Check out my post about that place here: http://www.andreobongco.com/2014/10/the-sunsets-at-barangay-balaring.html)

I never fail to visit my birthplace Puntataytay when I go home. It reminds of a happy childhood with my cousins and grandparents..
