A small family operated resort offering kiteboarding, adventue, Philippino cultural experience and a friendly laid back atmosphere.
The albums section is intended for slideshows which will be added during the near future. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Hmmm.... have not figured yet how to put multiple albums on a single page so for the time being only one album but sooner or later they will come. As you can probably see we are learning how to make this website. HTML is our tool of choice.
Please feel to browse the albums. We give a bit of pictorial history of various Coconut Shade facilities, accommodation, feature details as well as construction history. Every single bit that you see is hand made, constructed, plastered, nailed, lifted, dropped or tied. A lot of real sweat, some blood and yes, tears as well has gone into making Coconut Shade what it is today.
You can find Tablas Island in the heart of the Philippine Romblon province. The relative isolation has preserved the unique cultural heritage and natural beauty of the island. Those looking for adventure will find abundance of places to explore but will also find that together with the friendly and welcoming nature of the Tablas Island people you will create warm and long lasting memories.
You will find our prices will be meant to motivate guests to visit and enjoy their time at Coconut Shade and on Tablas Island without going home broke. For us Coconut shade is not a profit center, its our way of life. If you really want to come but are struggling to afford it, please talk to us, we are sure to try to find a way. While you are here you are family. When you leave you are still family and we will be looking forward to your eventual return.
