Had a road trip last December 21 to Mati because my partner insisted to go there, though I was skeptical during that time because a typhoon just made its landfall. We still did obviously, arrived there by night and didn't do much because we were exhausted. Brought with us a tent and had a hard time sleeping due to the... More

A Long Way from Davao 5 hours east by bus. 30 minutes by trike from Mati. Well worth the journey to explore a hidden Gem. Probably what Boracay looked like 30 years ago? Very few foreign tourist. Popular with locals on weekends. From Mati there are several turnouts to mini resorts. We set up at Amihan and paid 50php each... More

I am glad i have been to both Boracay and El Nido before i stepped foot on this virginal shores of Dahican. The sand is beige yet compact and very fine; you would want to rub it against your legs! The water is gentle, yet playful, just right for a good swim. This experience made me proud even more of... More

We went to Dahican Beach mati with our motor bike only. It was a very long trip but not a boring one because you will be seeing beautiful views on the way to Mati like the sleeping dinosaur. When we finally reached Dahican Beach I was mesmerized by the beauty of the sea. It was like a piece of paradise... More

I lost my love for the sea some time ago, because I simply had too much of it when I was younger and because most of the beaches near Davao City have limited shores due to selfish and tasteless "property" segregation by the owners. Dahican Beach made me love swimming in the ocean again. The shoreline is a sight to... More
