Dahican Beach is one of Davao Oriental's most visited tourist attractions. It is a long stretch of white sand beach ideal for beach bumming and water activities such as surfing and skim boarding. It is about 3 hours away from Davao City and a good escape from the busy city life. If you're an adventurous type of person, you may... More

It was summerfrolic2015 when we went here so it's expected that there were a lot of people camping, partying, drinking, eating, swimming, and just plainly having fun! We saw people trying to surf and even kite surfed but the surfing spot was just to near to the shore. The shore was clean even if there were a lot people but... More

Mindanao’s first ever Electronic Music Festival of Colours and we were there. One of the Philippine’s biggest summer beach party, Summerfrolic 2014, is presented by FrolicFox and La-ne’s at the Dahican Strip. In the morning, it was time for some personal relaxation and chilling in the beach. The strong Amihan wind compensated for the hot summer sun. It was in... More

The view is simply breathtaking. The waves are great for skim boarding and surfing. They also offer beginner lessons at a fee. Swim with caution as the water is deep.

Although we did miss the Christmas rush, the beach did appear as being clean and quiet in later January. Surely it must have its busy times. Regardless, we were all impressed with the beach's views and its quiet simple ways. Many people were posting the sand as being white. I would not say so. More or less a light Golden... More

Great beach with free cottages. You can bbq eith 30php/kilo on the 'tindahan' inside the resort/beach. Abit slopy beach and it can get really deep fast. Overall experience was worth it with family and friends especially when you have bbqs.

I chanced upon Dahican Beach when I traveled to Mati, Davao Oriental on a work visit. I heard about the place from blogger Jojie Alcantara and told myself I had to see the waves for myself. Around 5am, I hopped on a habal-habal and arrived at the beachfront before sunrise. The cove was practically empty save for a handful of... More
