Sea Forest | Dumaguete Info

Our visit to Sea Forest was as a party of 6 including 3 children. The children loved the pools and slides however the beach was a disappointment, being largely flat rock and stones. The restaurant was catering almost entirely for Filipino needs (download menu) which is OK for me but my children were not so impressed, opting instead to go to Chicken Jo’s (next door). Sea forest is also a dry venue (no alcohol permitted on site), while not a problem directly, it did feel like we were also the children.

Sea Forest hosts a range of features including:

  • Adult Pool With Waterslide
  • Kiddy Pool With Slide
  • Dancing Fountain
  • Man made Waterfalls
  • Jacuzzi
  • Children’s Playground
  • Submerged Aquarium
  • Aviary
  • Beach Area
  • Reataurant
  • Pavillion

The pools are well maintained with nets above to catch falling leaves and bugs and the water slides certainly make the place more interesting. The aviaries have a range of tropical birds but after three nights we just wanted them to be quiet for a while. We could also hear the traffic on the highway which surprised us as we assumed we would be in the forest but that was on the other side of the road.

All in all I would go to sea forest again but just for a day. A three night stay became a bit tedious.
