624 Carlock St. Restaurant Supports The Local Tourism in Argao, South of Cebu
The municipality of Argao is located in the southeast of the province of Cebu, 68 km (42 mi) from Cebu City. Argao is exactly midway between Cebu City and the southern tip of Cebu island at (Santander). It is approximately 26 km (16 mi) from Carcar, from Alcoy, and from Loon which is across the Bohol or Cebu Strait. The rectangle that is Argao – 20 km × 40 km (12 mi × 25 mi) more or less – is bounded, clockwise, in the west by Badian, Alcantara, Ronda, and Dumanjug; in the north by Sibonga; in the east by the Bohol Strait; and in the south by Dalaguete.
History of Argao
When Argao was still a wilderness with only few people living far from each other, a certain kind of tree called “sali-argaw” grew abundantly along its coasts. They became landmarks for fishermen on their fishing expeditions and serves as a haven on stormy days. These trees were so towering they could be seen while yet on the strait of Bohol. The town was named after these trees. Argao is described as one of the most interesting places in the province for its public stone buildings roofed with tiles and for its ovens used for the baking of bricks and tiles. Many of these Argao-made bricks and tiles found their way to Cebu City where they were used in elite houses. It is one of the few towns that still manages to keep alive the old Spanish flavor. This is evident not only from its old church, but also from its venerable houses made of tisa.
Argao Tourist Attractions
Argao has some nice beaches to swim and are popular for day trippers from the city. Most popular is the brown sand beaches of Mahayahay Beach. Cottages here can be rented from 250P per day, they also rent Tourist 1 and 2 buildings (as in video). Rainbow Hauz (see video) and the 2 fan rooms (each good for 8 people) can be rented for 1500 (fan rooms) and for the aircon Rainbow Hauz for 3000P. Riverstone Castle was built by a Belgium artist and is a replica of a medieval castle complete with battlements and drawbridge. It has a restaurant, mini zoo and pool. Riverstone also has rooms for overnight stays. Argao Nature Park is a place to get away with the family. Activities include rock climbing, zipline and boating on the lake. Also worth seeing is the towns church, San Miguel Archangel Parish (and its adjoining museum). If you like a bit of adventure, try heading up into the mountains to see Bugasok Falls. There is nothing in the way of tourist infrastructure there, nor is there any road signage to get there. I rented a habal habal driver from the Argao market. If you haven’t been before I think that’s the best option. There is a small tourist office at the main plaza. Argao also has one of the largest caves in Cebu the “Balay Sa Agta”.
The 624 Carlock St; & Argao Restaurants
Most of the resorts have their own restaurants, if you plan to eat out in town there are a couple of local cuisine restaurants. Also along the beach strip is a number of Barbeque stalls selling cheap dishes.
The newest addition in its restaurant scene is the 624 Carlock St. Its a home-theater & Concert Cafe, developed for a new “ home-theater & dining experience” for our guest in Argao & nearby localities. The limited-menu is well-selected. Choice of Popcorn, Fries & Calamares are the perfect finger foods for watching a home-theater movies. For matured diners, home-cooked favorites & familiar Argao, Cebu & Manila’s ATAIF Dishes (All Time Asean & International Favorites), that will fit in the “viewing while dining environment”. Well-liked , Mini Barbeques, Yang Chow & Fried Chicken Legs for kids is listed.When the film ends and the applause die out, guest & their families prefers to watch a movie & dine at 624 Carlock St.
