The ‘Most Wanted’ Vacation Destinations in Samal Island Davao

Malipano Island Pearl Farm 
Samal Island is one of the famous tourist vacation destinations in the Philippines right now. This is because of its accessibility –it’s just 15 minutes away from Davao City plus transportation to Samal is now available 24/7.

How to Get to Samal Island

There are two major islands in IGACOS (Island Garden City of Samal): the Talicud Island and the Main Samal Island. 

SAMAL: To get in the mainland Samal, you may ride via motor boat if you don’t have a personal vehicle or take the Barge (RoRo) at Sasa Wharf for you to bring your own vehicle.

TALICUD: There is only one way to get to Talicud Island –it’s by Motorboat only. You can catch this motor boat at Sta. Ana Wharf or commonly called as Magsaysay Port.  

If you’re looking for Philippines’ best beaches, I’m sure that Samal has few to be proud of. These are Samal’s famous and beautiful beach destinations:

Epol Mountain Resort one of the hidden Tourist Destination in Davao City

When we are in Alice Log House we found out that there is a near beautiful falls that can be visited. So when the caretaker told us we don’t think twice we grab our extra cloths and go to epol falls. We walk about 500 meters from Alice log house then after we reach the entrance of epol mountain resort we continue walking about 800 meters from the highway to the falls.

The trek was wide and descending good for backpackers and adventure seeker. You need to pay 7 pesos for the first entrance and 7 pesos for the Epol mountain resort. You can rent a cottage for 30 pesos and for parking fee for 4 wheels you need to pay 30 pesos for motor cycle 20 pesos. Very much affordable! Bring your own food because there is no store available, for safety the place is very safe no bad guys, there is also guard to watch over you.

The walk from the main entrance to the falls will take 30 minutes or less depends on the speed of your walk and the slippery of the trail.  

Epol Mountain Resort is 75 kilometers from Davao City, almost 2 hours travel from down town. It is along the high way. The falls is very beautiful and refreshing. The water is cooled and can make your hot heal cool. J I really love the falls just enjoy the place because it’s very natural and organic.

See the picture to appreciate and hope I you can visit Epol water falls one of the hidden tourist spot of Davao City.
