How to get to Lemlunay.
From Tagum City to General City, it takes 2 hours and 41 minutes (193.3 km) via Pan - Philippine Highway.
The views along the way in this part of Sarangani Province are not the usual Philippine countryside views of coconut trees and rice fields. They're similar to the views in Coron, Palawan. There are a lot of limestone formations in mountains along the way and which can also be seen from afar. The well-maintained highways are rolling and have views of both the mountains and the seas. The journey is as important as the destination, I should say.
Upon reaching this marker of Barangay Kamanga, Lemlunay Resort is just a few meters away.
"Lemlunay Resort is located at the southwest corner of Sarangani Bay in the province of Sarangani. Looking out at the ocean you will see Sarangani Bay to the left and the Sulawesi sea to the right.The bay has a wealth of good diving and the best location is the huge Tinoto Wall. This runs about 10 kilometers along the bay in front of the South Point Divers clubhouse. The wall drops off well over 50 meters about 10 to 20 meters from shore. The fishing vessels tell us there is a short ledge in the wall then it continues to drop down to 300 meters or more, well beyond diving limits, so please watch your depth."
If only Lemlunay is near our home, we would be there as of often as we want to. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know we have a place to visit and to go to when we want to recharge once in a while. It is truly our haven.

From the restaurant, guests can go down the side to the diving, snorkeling and swimming spot in the ocean.
Two of the things we go to Lemlunay for are the sunrises and the moonlit nights.
