Davao is a host to a variety of exciting and fun activities.
Beach Activities, White Water Rafting and Water Sports
Off the coast of Davao is the beautiful Samal Island where white-sand beach resorts are located all over the shores. Have fun with your friends and family while enjoying the heat of the sun and the fresh smell of air in the wonderful white-sand beaches of Samal rivaling that of Boracay. You can do all kinds of Water Sports like beach volleyball and water skiing.
White Water Tubing is another option to go if you want to experience the adventure of rapid twists and turns of the river. Bring your friends and families at the Sibulan River in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur and enjoy some water tubing adventures.
Sight Seeing and Eco-Adventure
Davao is a proud place for naturally wonderful sites with lush green forests filled with exotic fruits and flowers.
Davao is also the home of the Philippine Eagle -- the National bird of the Philippines. Considered as endangered species, the Philippine Eagles are being bred in captivity by a team of scientists and volunteers at the Philippine Eagle Research Center in Malagos, Calinan District in Davao City. Today, the center welcomes tourists and visitors to enjoy its green surroundings and learn the important roles played by the Philippine Eagle in our ecology.

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Exploring the wonderful underwater world of Davao Gulf can be a liberating experience for those who love water adventures. Snorkeling is one of the best ways to start your adventure. Gear up for an even more excitement as you go deeper into the sea. A number of dive sites await you at the Talicud Island, Ligid Island, Isla Malipano and the Mushroom Rock.
If you have a whole-day off, spend it in leisure hopping from one island to the next. Island Hopping starts from Davao and proceeds to the islands of Samal, Talikud Island, Ligid Island, Isla Malipano and other islands nearby.
Mountain Climbing and Cave Exploration
Davao is located at the foot of Mount Apo -- the Philippines' highest peak. Counquering the mighty slopes of the Mt. Apo is every mountaineer's dream.
Spelunking is a short term for Cave Exploration. And a better way of doing it is again in the neigbouring Samal Island.
Davao has numerous golf sites. We have the Rancho Palos Verdes, the Lanang Golf and Country Club, and the Apo Golf and Country Club.
