Mindanao is full of wonders! There are pristine beaches that are very accessible from all parts of the city. Among the best beaches in the Philippines is found in the Island Garden City of Samal, an small island just 45 minutes away from the heart of Davao City. As the name itself suggests, Samal is a paradise on earth.
You can book a boat with your friends and go island hopping. This means you can go and explore different islands and resorts in Samal since there are numerous resorts with white sand beaches that will erase all your stress! You can lie on the beach and just chill if you want. You can snorkel around and look at the corals that lie underneath the waterline. If you’re a little bit more adventurous, you can go scuba diving and explore the deeper parts of the island where you can see endemic fishes and rare clams and sea creatures.
In DLA, we often take our students to places like Samal so they can relax and unwind after a week of studying. We let them have quality time with their teachers and with their classmates. This way, our students will go home not only with knew knowledge but also with new friends and great memories!
