Have you ever tried asking a Dabawenyo which beach resorts in Davao he would recommend? If he is like most people who are familiar with Davao, his finger would naturally point to the direction of the neighboring Samal Island. The Island Garden City of Samal boasts of having the best white-sand beach resorts near the Davao City area including the famous Pearl Farm Beach Resort and the local favorite Paradise Island Beach Resort. A little stretch of imagination would lead you to believe that there could be some other unknown beach resorts in that area that are equally good, a lot cheaper and that offer more privacy.
Here is a list of the beach resorts you might want to consider when you go to the Island Garden City of Samal.
