Dahican. 128525

I planned this trip for my birthday as I've never been to any part of Mindanao before. 128513

We stayed in Davao City first, then went here on Day 2. It's a 4-hour drive from Davao City to get to this place in Mati, Davao Oriental.

It's one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen because of the color of its waters. 128525 The photos were taken from different parts of the beach.

The waves in Dahican are craaaazy! I tried to skimboard but man, it's hard. 128513 You can also try to surf. The waves 127754 are fast & big 'cause the sea is facing the Pacific Ocean already.

I will go back here someday. I loved the peace & quiet of the place and it gives you that feeling that you're really on vacation. 128522

PS: It was so great to meet 2 looloo reviewers from Davao! Suzette C & Charlene C! 128522 Thank you for showing me around & for the food trip! I hope someday we can all go to Dahican na! 128536128536

The first time I heard of Dahican, i thought it's a name of a resort. I just figured it out when we arrived, that Dahican is actually the name of the whole beach and per area, there are different beach parks and resorts. Walking by the shoreline, you get to pass by the different beach parks.

Dahican is crazy beautiful. It is a white sand beach and the sound of waves are very relaxing. :)

The beach park where we stayed the longest is the "Amihan sa Dahican" this is where I think a lot of people come to learn and experience surfing. Rates are around 200/hr for skimboard lessons and 500/hr for surfboard lessons.128522

More details of Amihan sa Dahican when looloo adds the place to their database:)

Boracay? No! it is in Dahican, Mati Davao Oriental, Dahican is famously known for white sand beaches. It is also a perfect place for surfers, the beaches along Dahican are facing the Pacific Ocean which causes big waves. Many surfers were practicing here for certain competitions.

We don't need to fly to Boracay to experience white sand beaches cause Dahican has its beaches to offer with such affordable entrance fee (for some private resorts) and very economical. But in our case you can't believe this, in the resort this picture was taken (Amihan Resort) there's no entrance fee, we only paid for table cottage which only costs 100php. If you want to experience surfing then you can rent a surfing board (in which I don't know how much, but it is an unlimited use). You can also cross along different resort since there's no barricades. Affordable and amazing, isn't it?

For sure in the near future this could be a tourist attraction and could be an optional place for Boracay. 128077

Every 1st of January it has become a tradition in our family to go to Mati City, it is a 6 hours drive (more or less) from Davao City, but since I lived in a rural area of Maco it's only 4 hours drive.

Aside from playing good music on your road trip, you could definitely enjoy the view along the road. As you can see in the picture it is the famous stopping spot of the road travelers, it is called "the sleeping dinosaur", you could enjoy the view of the green pastures and its formations, the view of the ocean and islands (which is not seen in the picture). Definitely a worth to visit.

The shore line is breath taking. Perfect for learning how to skim (easier version of surfing). Awesome for spending precious time with friends and family. The place gives you a peaceful feeling of being away from the busy city life. 128076
