Very quiet and beautiful beach. Not many tourists. Good place to relax and just do nothing. Swimming might not be best certain times of the year and day due to the waves but good for surfing.

A natural playground for surfers. Waves are humongous. You better bring your food when goin to this place bec there are no restaurants or cafes around. The only accommodations avail are Botona and Dahican Surf Resort. We opted to rent for a tent at Amihan bec their site offers the best spot for surfing. The sand is very fine although... More

If youre the beach/outdoor-sy type of person, Dahican is for you. A 2 1/2- hr drive from Davao City, Dahican is a beach like no other: tranquil side for relaxation and wild side for skim boarding and surfing. Plus u get to have a peek of the Pacific.

Only a 3-hours drive from Davao City via the Scenic Maharlika Highway, Dahican Beach is indeed a hidden gem. The roads to Mati, Davao Oriental are unbelievably good - even better than those in Davao City. If only local leaders encourage investors to develop the area, and ensure the beauty of the town is preserved, it would surely be a... More

This is the pride of South Min for surfing and other water extreme adventures. Located in Mati, Davao Oriental, and may be reached by bus or private vehicle. However, there are only few resorts and restaurants nearby. Its better to include the itinerary other beaches just few kilometers away and even the island hopping in Waniban..

Accommodation quite basic. You need to stay in Mati. Best hotel there I found was the one at the end of the boardwalk on the waterfront. A bit old but good air con, bed and a large room. Plenty of strong hot water.

Dahican Beach is one of my favorite "escape" places. It's located 3-4 hours from Davao City. From Mati City, it's a 15 minute motorcycle ride. There's not much in terms of hotel choices, but if you're not afraid of roughing it, you can put up a tent, or sleep in a hammock at the Amihan headquarters where the local skim... More
