Alubihod, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras
The Rico Beach is just one of the several
beach front resorts in Brgy. Alubihod of Nueva Valencia, Guimaras.
The whole area used to be called just Alubihod.
However, when residents of the area who are all relatives
to the first and second degree made good fortune in making
a living out of it, partitions were constructed and names
were attached on patches of land fronting the beach —
the Raymen Beach and the Rico Beach, among others.
Although the Rico beach resort is the smallest
in terms of land area and the least developed, it had a huge
boulder (or a mountain) bordering it on the east side and
it has been developed on a certain degree to host 3 cottages
on its slope.
