A Heaven Haven in Samal Island

Last weekend, my siblings and I headed to Davao City for Samal Island experience. I had been hearing only good things about this place but failed to actually be there. So, in spite of hectic schedule and piled back works, we managed to hit the road and the green waters!

We had approximately 4 hours of bumpy travel on the road from GenSan City and on the barge from Davao City wharf to Samal Island. We didn't mind the travel as we were more excited of what we should experience and savor from the trip. And, blessed we were, that we indeed had so much fun. We arrived late in the afternoon and just hit the waters until 10 pm. Yuri was almost inseparable from the sea. The sand was all white and fine, the waters all clear and the surrounding was all green. We just brought our tent with us. So, it was indeed a nature's trip!

The place was almost exclusive, so you get to enjoy the beach with very few guests. We wish to come back with the entire family and stay longer. We only regretted that we stayed on this beautiful of Isla Rita for overnight and headed back to our home.
