Samal Island Overview
The beautiful Island of Samal in Southern Mindanao is easily reached by Ro-ro ferry from Sasa wharf located on the outskirts of Davao city which despite what people say about Mindanao is one of the safest and friendliest Cities that I have visited in South East Asia .
Crossing from the mainland takes about 15 minutes and you can take your car , motorcycle or even the Island express bus , there are many resorts dotted along the coastline with some of the more popular ones being Pearl farm and blue Jazz and have prices to suit most budgets .
