nice island in davao Jun 24, 2011
If you're ever in davao. Head out to the nearby Samal island. And taxi can take u to the pier for a brief boatride to the island. Just bring a beach bag, suntan lotion, hat, mobile phone, and few cash (for food). U can take this on a day trip. Or stay in the island for a couple of days (not sure about accomodations though). Ideally take the boat ride in the morning. Find yourself a nice hut, order food and drinks at nearby grill shops (for bbq or grilled fish). Take a swim (wear water shoes as the beach has lots or corals and rocks). Just laze around and get a good tan. catch the boat ride that brings you back in the city before night fall.

The place is nice...White sand...A lot of people come here so it's a little bit crowded during peak season.They also offer massage beside the shore it costs around P500...Aside from the soothing massage it's also relaxing because of the waves hitting the shore.

Paradise Island Mar 28, 2011
Hard to find the street to catch the banka. Boat ride is 15P/ person. Entrance into beach 100P/person. Became too commercialized. Beach faces north & they put shade screen to cover most of the beach. But everything else was clean & there's a small zoo at the back. Kind of strange. The food is expensive & if you bring boan you have to sit at a different area. The cottages are nice & the landscape is well kept. There's not much snorkeling to see. Hardly any fish. Limited to swimming because the current is strong past the boat docks.
