As much as I want to keeo this paradise all to myself, I know that it would be unfair to those who want a peaceful and serene beach bumming. Isla Reta will offer you all that with a very affordable stay in their non-airconditioned rooms. It is located in Talicud Island, Island City of Samal. We went there on October...

First, I really fell in love with the place. Love the powdery and white sand. I wished I could have stayed longer. The weather was great during our first visit and I enjoyed both sunbathing and swimming. The resort was not crowded that time [Tuesday]. Though my experience was great, it was the opposite to my friends. There was a...

Small accommodation, little offer and electricity only from time to time. For about 900 peso per night is not offered much. The beach is nice but full of corals. There is very little in the restaurant. For the breakfast not even bread to the Omlete. And, of course, only genuine Philipino coffee (3in1)

One of the best beaches Island Garden City of Samal can offer! This paradise is located specifically on Talicud island. 45min-1hr boat ride from Davao City. The place is very affordable and if you are a beach lover, you will like this! Just bring enough food and water because the food is quiet expensive and sleeping materials. You can also...

It took us almost 2 hours for us to get the food we ordered. We initially inquired since February if we can book in advance but the person who answers mobile inquiries said it's too early to reserve if we are arriving in August. So when we arrived the guy said they are now fully booked.

The white beach is so fine, not your type of serene due that it's crowded on a weekend. If you're staying overnight, best advise is to book weeks ahead if you want to get their rooms (fan type, non-aircon), but they do have tents for rent though. If you're staying overnight on a tent, some people party loud, and might...

Going in this beach resort takes almost an hour boat ride. But when you arrive, the view was really captivating. Clear blue water, corals & fishes, even jellyfishes & sea snakes lol. That is how this area is untouched. They don't offer water activities, so if you come here it is mostly snorkeling (with your own gears), picnic on the...

Over all the place is great. Blue water, clean place, white sand. The beach is good for just swimming and if you just want to get wet. If you have your snorkling set with you, it is probably not as good as the other places. You can still see fish swimming around and some corals but not as colorful. The...

It's really a great escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Accomodation and boat transpo is very affordable. Food in the island is not worth the price. Bring your own if you want. Beach is superb, well maintained. Fine white sand is simply alluring.
