Mati is a very safe place. Locals are very friendly too. If you are unsure you may visit Samal island instead but I suggest you visit Mati. Crystal clear water, sea cows, turtles, waves, and much more. Try booking at surf... More

Hi Krisgen! No entrance fee in Menzi beach! :) It's a public space and maintained by Mati LGU. Yes! Do bring your tent! Enjoy the waves and hopefully, you'll get to see some dugongs! :) Enjoy!
