Freeze: Davao del Norte Beaches

When someone talks about beautiful beaches in Davao, chances are those places are found at the nearby Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS), Davao del Norte and not in Davao City. IGACOS is blessed with magnificent white sand beaches and diving spots that hide colorful sea creatures and coral reefs. Here are some of the popular beaches/beach resorts in Samal.

Pearl Farm Beach Resort was once home to a pearl farm, where precious pearls were nurtured and cultivated as the ocean’s most beautiful gems (image source:
Paradise Island Park and Beach Resort is very proud of its humble beginnings. What started out as a weekend picnic destination back in the seventies, catering mostly to friends and their families has become what it is today as not only the preferred island getaway for families but is also the byword for those growing impulsive groups who are so busy and yet wise enough to squeeze – in leisure in their hectic schedules at the spur of the moment.
Having a shoreline of almost eight hundred meters (800 m), it is the only place in this part of Samal Island that has maintained its shores by feeding the fishes, clean them with having periodic “Scubasurero Activities,” and has placed a “safety pole” to ward off jelly fish and rubbish, discouraging anglers from poaching the area and encouraging its visitors to enjoy the marine life and leave the same so that others may also enjoy them. Its white sand beach as well as its surroundings are combed and cleaned throughout the day giving a pure and clean ambiance for its visitors and workers alike (image source:
Isla Reta Beach Resort is an ideal place to relax. Located in Brgy. Santa Cruz, Talicud Island, Island Garden City of Samal, Isla Reta prides itself with a long stretch of white-sand beach and crystal clear water (image source:
