Another Samal Island Zipline{1}

Samal Island Zipline

The ever popular Samal Island zipline lives on. Not the same one that I’ve reported on previously. I don’t believe that one ever got back operational. This one is on the east side of the island on Kalinawan Resort.

Kalinawan Resort is an adventure resort featuring such activities as:

ROCK CLIMBING – Are you looking for a challenge? Kalinawan’s 80-foot high and 100-foot wide natural limestone rock formation is not just there for you to ogle. Experienced climbers and first timers alike will have a blast climbing our wall. It’s a pretty intense workout! (The beginner’s side is already a challenge.)

I’m kind of surprised I hadn’t heard of this resort previously. Being on the other side of the island, which takes a bit more effort to get to, may be part of it. From the website it’s unclear whether there is any lodging available. From what I can gather there may be some simple cottages and tent camping, but I can’t verify that.

I’ve added their contact information to the Samal Island Resorts Directory.
