A Sip of Sipalay: Campomanes Bay
Belle Piccio | Feb 24, 2014
Campomanes Bay is a great tourist destination, not only for summer, but for any time of the year. It also adds a dimension to the allure of Sipalay City, which is famed as the copper and gold belt of Negros Island.
The bay has an existing port that caters to medium-sized seacraft (pump boats). The enclosed shape of the bay and the presence of islets in its entrance provide calm waters even in harsh weather conditions.
The bay opens to a wide expanse of coral gardens with various species of corals and fish.
Campomanes Bay is excellent for diving. It's also good for jet-skiing, kayaking, and other water sports.
