One of the best beaches Island Garden City of Samal can offer! This paradise is located specifically on Talicud island. 45min-1hr boat ride from Davao City. The place is very affordable and if you are a beach lover, you will like this! Just bring enough food and water because the food is quiet expensive and sleeping materials. You can also...

It took us almost 2 hours for us to get the food we ordered. We initially inquired since February if we can book in advance but the person who answers mobile inquiries said it's too early to reserve if we are arriving in August. So when we arrived the guy said they are now fully booked.

The white beach is so fine, not your type of serene due that it's crowded on a weekend. If you're staying overnight, best advise is to book weeks ahead if you want to get their rooms (fan type, non-aircon), but they do have tents for rent though. If you're staying overnight on a tent, some people party loud, and might...

Going in this beach resort takes almost an hour boat ride. But when you arrive, the view was really captivating. Clear blue water, corals & fishes, even jellyfishes & sea snakes lol. That is how this area is untouched. They don't offer water activities, so if you come here it is mostly snorkeling (with your own gears), picnic on the...

Over all the place is great. Blue water, clean place, white sand. The beach is good for just swimming and if you just want to get wet. If you have your snorkling set with you, it is probably not as good as the other places. You can still see fish swimming around and some corals but not as colorful. The...

It's really a great escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Accomodation and boat transpo is very affordable. Food in the island is not worth the price. Bring your own if you want. Beach is superb, well maintained. Fine white sand is simply alluring.

We went to Isla Reta to beach bum and we were not disappointed! The entrance is only 100 pesos and the food is good and cheap. We only paid 600 pesos for a grilled liempo, buttered chicken and chicken bbq with 4 rice and 1 liter of soda. The food is good. It uses very simple ingredients, like what you...

Please bring your own food or you can buy fresh seafood upon entering the beach on your right. Just DON'T order from their RESTAURANT! Super slow service with bad attitude from the staff. We waited 2hrs for our food with countless follow up with the waitresses but to no avail. We were very patient and polite up until the waiter...
