According to the blogs na nabasa ko... it seems that u NEVER visited DAVAO if di mo nakita o maexpereinced and pumunta sa SAMAL ISLAND... and upon checking the pictures, reviews ng lugar na to i included it in my lists of MUST DOs.

MUST SEE AND EXPERIENCE:

HABAL HABAL - Samal island - a very challenging island since mostly ang form of transpo nila ay HABAL HABAL.. anu to? ito po ay isang single na motor na pagkakasyahin , PILIT na pagkakasyahan ang 3-4 na katao... ang its really not that easy..  ang liit ng motor, 3 kaming nakaangkas, lilibutin naman ang isla gamit ang motor so mga ilang oras din un di ba , nabasa kami ng ulan pero masaya namn kami.  Madami talaga mapagsamantalang tao kaya i would suggest contact na kau ng kakilala nyo just before u hire kasi super duper tatagain nila kau... we only paid 700 for the whole day trip .. some drivers will charge u 300per hour  and its so disappointing kasi they do not value tourist pero di naman lahat may iba din naman na mabait like r driver kuya fernando (0905 7394302)..  Ang bayaran dun ay per motor ha, di yan per person... ung rates na binayaran naman ay depende sa kung saan kau pupunta and ilan kau at kung anu pa ang pwede nilang maioffer sau kasi sa kanya din kami kumontak ng banka para sa island hopping.

nakakaloka ha.. compartble ba kami?

nakikipag usap kay kuya fernando

now.. lets try this HABAL HABAL

challenging cya !!

unahan kami =)


MAXIMA AQUA FUN - pangalan pa lang super fun na talaga.. super naenjoy ko ang araw/oras na andito kami.. for 200php u can cliff dive, slide, swim as many times as u want, tapos andito din ang pinakamurang scuba diving na nakita ko 650php.. well they have a good reason why.. may sea wall sila dito and u dont really need na magbanka para lang makakita ng magagandang lamang dagat.. i super enjoyed it . and will definitely go back here .  ang bait din naman kasi ng guide/instructor sa scuba namn dito si Kuya ALLAN ( 09331208022  / 09995105378) and KUYA TUTING .. kontak allan if u want to experience scuba and other water fun in maxima.

super nakakaloka pumasok sa loob nito as in

swim swim swim


so many activities! love it



BLUEJAZ RESORT - we stayed here for one night, ang resort na to ang may pinaka malaking water slide sa buong isla.  its an OK rating for me kasi di ko rin naman naenjoy ang stay ko dito , kasi we r practically out the entire day so natulog lang kami, take some pix and then leave. pero a good advise, try to check other resorts madmi din naman na mas mura kaysa sa blue jazz we paid more than 2k for 2 just for a one night stay, and ung rooms nila was not that nice but its ok for a backpacker like me =)












mt. APO.. maaakyat din kita.. promise







HAGIMIT FALLS -  checking hagimit online pix was really very nice, so dapat included ko cya sa itins namin.. nag enjoy naman kami sa very quick stay namin dito. the water was not that clear kasi umulan but di mo pa din maitatago ang ganda ng lugar na to. entrance fee was just 40php.  very challenging ang hagdan nila (for me ha) kasi napagod ako eh heheehehehe =)







nice view

ISLAND HOPPING -  must see.. ang daming magagandang isla sa paligid ng samal island so i would suggest  gawin nyo to.. mejo mahal nga lang compare sa island hopping ng bohol, boracay or even palawan pero mas malalayo kasi cya at ang dami naman talaga. aside from that you will have a chance to see the FAMOUS PEARL FARM RESORT. 






kaputian beach resort

vanishing island



jeff. love the pic






taking pictures is my passion =)



BATS -  isa sa mga attraction ng samal island.. entrance was i think 15php (if di ako nagkakamali)  was not able to go here due to time constraints but im happy na rin kasi pinagpalit ko namn cya sa scuba diving but two of my friends manage to see this.

ang pangihi

nakakapangilabot
nakakaamazed sa dami





HAPPY TRAVELS!!
