NOTICE The "NAVIGATION-MENU" (on the left) contains Chapters that will save you money -- educate you regarding the area -- help you understand the Philippines (e.g. the awesome culture, and what to expect in this wonderful country) -- and also explain some of the "extra" things we try to do for our guests here at SKIP'S BEACH RESORT.

 

NOTICE...  REGARDING THE "MENU-BAR" (ABOVE LEFT): 
We highly recommend that you at least read the Chapters that are shown in "RED."  This will help you to understand our philosophy about "FRIENDSHIP" and "SERVICE" here at Skip's Beach Resort.   

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES: 
If you email us with your questions, we will get back to you immediately.  If we are out of the country (traveling, etc.) when your email arrives, we promise to get back to you as soon as we return home. 

A SYNOPSIS OF THE "MENU-BAR" CHAPTERS: 
If you read this page (scroll down), it will give you a quick synopsis of what the rest of the Chapters contain.  If you read all of our Chapters, you will learn a LOT about the Daanbantayan Area -- the Island of Malapascua -- the Philippines in general -- etc.   Also, some of these Chapters (such as the Chapter called "GOOD CONTACTS IN THE PHILIPPINES") can enable our "tourist-visitors" to save large amounts of money. 

PLEASE: 
We encourage our guests to inspect our rooms -- our beds -- and our entire facility -- prior to staying with us.  By doing so, they will be assured that their stay with us will be a happy one.  

Each room includes air-conditioning and Cable TV

Filipino hospitality and friendship is very important to us here at SKIP'S BEACH RESORT.

SKIP ELLSWORTH AND HIS WIFE BELLE WELCOME YOU TO THE PHILIPPINES !!!
(THEIR FAMILY PHOTOS ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.)

OUR LOCATION: 
We are located on the North end of the Island of Cebu in the Philippines.  This is one of the most beautiful tropical  islands in the world. There are more than 7,000 of these awesome islands in the Philippines and more than half of them are not inhabited.  Looking out the windows of our resort we can see many islands, such as the world-famous Malapascua Island (less than one hour from here) -- Chocolate Island -- Gato Island -- Kanatarkin Island -- Karnasis Island, etc.  On a clear day, we can see 17 islands from our resort.  Historians and sociologists tell us that these Islands are similar to what the Islands of Hawaii were like 200 years ago.

 

OUR "OUTSIDE" LIVING-ROOM IS SHOWN BELOW: 
The photos below [click to enlarge] show such things as our "outside" living-room that is located by the sea-wall -- our FREE public camp-shelters in the background (see the FREE CAMPGROUND CHAPTER for details) -- the stairs from the sea-wall to the ocean -- the sunset as seen from the third-floor deck -- the beach in both directions -- etc.  Our FREE wireless DSL internet connection works well in the sea-wall area, so our guests often like to relax there with their laptop-computers.  Thank you for your patience regarding all these photos...

At high tide we can jump into the ocean from our sea-wall.  However, at low tide we can walk towards the ocean for hundreds of meters (up to one kilometer) without even getting out feet wet.  The means we have many hectares (acres) of beach for strolling -- for examining the "aquatic life" in tide-pools -- etc.



OUR LOBBY-LOUNGE-RESTAURANT AREA:
These photos show our "INSIDE" lobby-lounge-restaurant-dining-area.  Through the glass doors one can also see the "OUTSIDE" lobby-lounge-restaurant-dining-area.  Our guests often bring their computers to this area so they can be close to the water-sport activities.

BELLE'S RESTAURANT:
Belle does not need to make a profit from her restaurant.  Therefore, she charges only enough money to cover her expenses for buying the ingredients – preparing them – the gas for cooking them – serving them – washing dishes – etc.  Our outside seating is a favorite among our friends-guests.  There is almost always a cool breeze blowing in from the ocean, and the air is among the freshest and cleanest in the world.  Daanbantayan is known for its excellent sea-food -- large shrimp and lobster -- etc.  As a frame of reference, the Asian Lobster (below) is resting upon floor tiles that are 12 inches square.



ABOUT BRUCE LEE AND SKIP ELLSWORTH:
Because many people have asked us to do so, we have now added two chapters about SKIP ELLSWORTH and his good friend and teacher BRUCE LEE.  These two Chapters can be opened via the MENU-BAR (see the upper left of this page).

The Chapters are included near the bottom of the MENU-BAR -- as follows:

                            SKIP AND BRUCE LEE -- CHAPTER #2
               
            SKIP AND BRUCE LEE -- CHAPTER #3

BRUCE LEE'S ORIGINAL STUDENTS IN AMERICA: 
The following photo is of BRUCE LEE -- along with SKIP ELLSWORTH and the other original students in America
-- as follows: 

JESSE GLOVER
-- BRUCE LEE -- SKIP ELLSWORTH -- TAK MIYABE -- JIM DeMILE -- LeROY GARCIA -- AND TAKY KIMURA

If you are a BRUCE LEE fan -- or if you are interested in Martial Arts -- then you might enjoy reading some of the historical (perhaps formerly unknown) information about Bruce Lee that is included in the two Chapters about Bruce that are now included on this website.

FREE USE OF OUR BOATS
We have sail-boats, with paddles, that can be used FREE by our "tourists-friends-guests."  Three of these boats are shown immediately below.  In these photos, Clint Anderson and his family just returned from a boat-trip, and they are in the process of putting the boat away.  Clint and his family are frequent guests at our resort.  On this sailing expedition they went swimming -- snorkeling -- exploring -- fishing -- visiting friends on the same huge beach -- etc.  One of the last two photos shows the boat with the sail rolled up, and the other photo shows the sail in use. 


OUR HOTEL-RESORT BY THE SEA: 

THE DAANBANTAYAN-MALAPASCUA AREA:
SKIP'S BEACH RESORT is located in one of the best areas in the world for such things as island-hopping --  boating -- fishing – diving – swimming – snorkeling –relaxing – exploring local villages -- making "new friends" -- learning about an entirely new culture -- getting close to nature – getting healthy -- losing yourself -- finding yourself -- etc. 

The world-famous Island of Malapascua is very near to us and it is clearly visible from the windows of our hotel.   it usually takes less than one hour to get to Malapascua from here.  The exact time will depend upon the wind, the waves, the size of the boat, the size of the engine, etc.

People often stay with us when they are on the way "to" or "from" Malapascua. 

Essentially, tourists that are on their way to the Island of Malapascua virtually ALWAYS stay with us under the following circumstances:

        #1.  When the waves are so big that boats can not go to Malapascua.
      
 #2.  When they arrive in this area AFTER the last boat has already left for Malapascua (perhaps 4  PM ???).

IMPORTANT... PLEASE NOTE:
We highly recommend that you read the two Chapters named as follows:

                 #1.  PLEASE SAVE A FILIPINO CHILD'S LIFE -- PART ONE.
                 #2.  PLEASE SAVE A FILIPINO CHILD'S LIFE -- PART TWO
 

The above-mentioned two Chapters explain how "YOU" can save the life of a Filipino child for less money than it costs to buy a pack of cigarettes in America. 

If you love children, or even if you only have a sense of responsibility towards them,  sure to read the above-mentioned articles.  You will be glad that you took the time to do so -- because it might favorably change your life, and your philosophy, FOREVER  

PS -- Skip's personal philosophy is...

        "I love EVERYBODY and there's not one damn thing they can do about it."
       :-)
