I've been to a lot of beaches, but this is one of the best beaches I've been to. It's a very close second to Boracay. From our hotel (Boardwalk Hotel), we were picked up by our tricycle driver at 8AM. We stayed at the Menzi beach, where the entrance fee was very cheap (around P10-20, I think). Upon entering, we...

Go visit the beach early in the morning, and watch the fishermen come in from the night's fishing. Be there around 7 am and you can watch children helping the fishermen carry their boats onto the beach, and all get a few fish in reward. Very lively at that hour, if you're a photographer you'll make some great shots here.... More

It was a long way to go from Tagum, Davao del Norte to MATI. Around 2-3 hours if you have you're own vehicle and it's all worth it knowing that there's a public beach where you can't spend a single cent but just enjoyed the view <3

Its a walking distance from Kanakbai where we were staying. The sun, the waves, the white sand is so tempting. We borrow a surfing board with some of the kids practicing in the area for pictorial. Wanna go back here. Good place to relax and enjoy.

Resorts in general have to upgrade but we visited Kanakbai and Pacific Breeze which are more than acceptable. The advantage of the latter is that they have a kitchen that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner service with real plates and utensils!

We went here when it was off season. The locals were friendly and my friends and I had a good time. Not as expensive as we thought it was going to be.

Now it is very easy to drive going there with concrete roads until the farthest beach you can go. this one here is where I used to fall in love in skim boarding and how... More
