Dahican Beach, Mati, Davao Oriental, Philippines

20140610-101302-36782012.jpg
My hubby and I planned this trip for his 31st Birthday. I’ve seen a lot of pictures from Facebook and they all seem promising and nice.

20140610-101632-36992097.jpg

It’s about 2-3 hours from Davao City. make sure to take this road -Dalang Maharlika (short-cut).

20140610-102014-37214121.jpg

We made some stop overs too, to have some snacks and to take pictures.

20140610-102210-37330889.jpg

20140610-102211-37331277.jpg

At this point, we were in Davao Oriental. This was our first time here in Mati.

20140610-102512-37512099.jpg

More stop over. We can’t resist not to take pictures.

20140610-102911-37751350.jpg

20140610-102911-37751907.jpg

Along the way, We came across this Resort – BonHomie Leisure & Resort.

20140610-103149-37909018.jpg

Another stop over and picture taking.

Almost there..

20140610-103717-38237720.jpg

To my surprise, the place wasn’t that nice as i expected. This is the government owned part of the beach. There were open cottages for rent. some of the buildings were still under construction.

20140610-104722-38842062.jpg

I’ve seen some young people camping.
So, We just decided to have some picnic. We’re kinda hungry from a long drive. It’s better to bring your own food too.. I didn’t see much restaurants from the city proper (Jollibee & some barbeque eatery).

20140610-105525-39325912.jpg

20140610-105526-39326280.jpg

20140610-105526-39326607.jpg

We were not asked to pay any entrance fee. Just make sure to clean and be responsible with your trash.

Resort Hopping – Since I haven’t booked ahead of time.. Here are some resorts that i have seen there.
– Dahican Surf Resort
– Botona Resort
– Pacific Breeze
– Kubo Resort (kinda remote)

20140610-110143-39703340.jpg

This is the Kubo Resort. The beach area was not maintained. I don’t see any people swimming. They have a pool but i think its salt water. I saw a water pump from the beach.

20140610-112503-41103832.jpg

Sad to say, most of the resorts there were fully booked at that time. We decided to go back to Pantukan (still part of Davao Oriental) and to look for a nicer and safer place to stay for the night.

With the help of our GPS, we found Jienos Beach Resort. We were very tired and call it a night but not without blowing the candles of my hubbys cake.

Happy 31st Birthday! We love you very mucho!
