HAPPY BEACH CEBU - The Happiest Place in the Philippines

Updated: Dec 8, 2018

THE HAPPIEST and MOST Instagramable Getaway is finally in the Philippines and us Cebuanos are lucky enough that it is in our city - CEBU!!! Specifically Mactan, Cebu :D

Jen and I were privileged enough to be invited to visit #HAPPYBEACHPH prior to its grand opening. So we were very excited and we took a lot of photos and even made our own video to make everyone excited for the next INSTAGRAM SUMMER CAPITAL OF CEBU!

Here's some information about the best place to be THIS SUMMER!


From the makers of Inflatable Island, and the team that brought you the iconic “Pink Bali Lounge” and the world famous “Unicorn Island" comes “The Happy Beach” boutique resort located in Mactan, Cebu aka your new permanent address this coming summer!

This 16-room boutique resort will be adorned by the "Pink Bali Beach”, the happiest floating playground in Asia, the newest installation called the “Happy Jungle Lounge” hailed to be the next instagram paradise, the blue waters of Mactan island, and more pink than you can ever imagine.

The Happy Jungle Lounge is the home of the rainbow trees and the dreamy pink pool.

Reserve one of the daybeds in this “rainbow jungle”.

(Insider tip: Make sure to book in advance as pool capacity is limited only to hotel guests and Happy Jungle loungers). 

In addition to the new floating playground, they have also upgraded our Floating Zoo with new“Animal Cabanas that can host up to 6 people at once! Talk about the ultimate chill spot!

Staying at the hotel gives you the ultimate perks! It gives you free access to beach attractions and the pink pool the moment you arrive and automatically gives dicounts on Happy Jungle daybeds and Inflatable Island play passes.

Where is it located?

Happy Beach is located in east TAMBULI RESORT. Click the link to access google maps.

It is only 25-35 minutes away from the airport. You can take a car/grab or taxi to ANGASIL PORT, then ride the HAPPY BOATS to Happy Beach Cebu

How do we get there?

Guests can take a Car/Taxi/Grab to ANGASIL PORT

How much would it cost me?



From Cebu City, Commute

From SM City Cebu terminal, take a van going to Gaisano Island Mall Pusok Lapu-Lapu for only P25 (one way). From there you can take a multicab going to Maribago. From Maribago, go down Buyong Road and the cost would be approximately P20.

From SM City Cebu through Private Vehicles/Taxi/GRAB

Taking a GRAB from SM City Cebu to Angasil would cost around P446, A taxi cab can take around P350-500 depending on the amount of traffic at that time

From Mactan Airport through Private Vehicles/Taxi/GRAB

Taking a GRAB from Mactan International Airport to Angasil would cost around P225, A taxi cab can take around P150-P350 depending on the amount of traffic at that time

*Best to go as a group so that fare prices would be cheaper, it would be best to book a van too!


Once you get to ANGASIL you can take the HAPPY BOAT which would cost P50 roundtrip per person.

All in all, our experience was really fun.

The moment you get to Angasil port, the staff were so friendly and they would not miss to greet you "HAVE A HAPPY DAY." Which for me is important, because the experience would not be as great without the people involved.

Also, once the boat lands at Happy Beach, they give cute headwear that matches the place and they give welcome drinks too! Super accommodating!


The food was good, I can't help but remember the Hainanese Chicken they offered. Everything was delicious, so yes the dining experience was memorable. Great job Happy Beach!

Souvenir/Gift Shop

One of our favorite spots ever. My cousin TonTon actually told us it was SO US. And yes, I'd have to agree, everything was SO CUTE and it was so perfect. To be honest it felt INSTAGRAM PERFECT!

One of the MUST VISITS on the island! and their Souvenirs are extremely cute!!!!


Overall, the experience was memorable and it was indeed instagram worthy.

Truly a great place to be this Summer 2018, or even during the Holidays.

They stick true to its expectations of being the Next Instagram Capital of Cebu, because everything indeed was instagram-able.

We will be seeing you again soon #HappyBeachPH <3
