Beach Hopping

Last November 1, 2009 we got our best outing as what I experienced here in MATI, DAVAO ORIENTAL. We had our beach hopping in all around the beaches here in MATI.


p00I had my very good friends here in MATI that give me this opportunity to explore the wonders of the place. The first stop was known by its cottages on the sea. You have to walk through a bridge with their cottages was on the sea level. Nice one! We spent our night there and had a awesome bath early in the morning.


Second stop, DAHICAN:


DAHICAN is just like BORACAY…its wonderful clear blue water made me excited to swim.



MAYO is known by its cold lagoon…try this one.

It was a very wonderful experienced. Even though I went home (DAVAO CITY) late…still it was no regrets to have companions like this…



I am here: Mati City, Davao Oriental

My friends… I am here in Mati City, Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines, South East Asia, Earth.

As I was talking on my last post that I will be moving again to another place…maybe I should say that… I was moved and been to another location again. Ho! It has been getting any longer to travel from my home (Davao City, Davao del Sur) than it was like before when I was in Tagum City.

I’ve been here last May 04, 2009. It takes more or less five (5) hours of travel from Davao City to Mati City. It’s been a long travel that’s why I haven’t got an idea to take some pictures on my way (aside that I wasn’t be able to have my cam with me) for the reasons that I was sleepy on a long travel. I slept. Hahahahhah!

When I’m on my way, I was be able to visualized the place. On what is Mati City look alike. I had been heard that the place has a lot of beaches and had a nice spots to unwind. I was excited and nervous at the same time. It is my first time to go to the place and work. Good luck to me.

For more than two weeks in Mati, the words that I can only say is adventure and challenge. Why?…uhm, for a week I be able on getting to know the place and the people. The place was on its hottest spots. Aside that its economy is exceeding, Govenment also want to promote the place and to invite investors to do business in the virgin white sand beaches of Mati. Yes! Beaches… Mati City has on its way to be proud of. The City had a lots of virgin beaches to explore on and I tried it.

I have been to Gregorio Beach Resort and *Masao Beach. It was a great experience and totally different aura of  what Masao is. Indeed, Mati is the best-kept secret of Davao Region.

masaoI had gone to thier wonderful *Church at Mt. Carmel, Tua-Tua Road, Barangay Matiao, here in Mati City.


I had taken a nice look of thier captivating spot which they say the sleeping dinosaur in *Pujada Island. Truly fascinating!… I wonder if it is truly a dino sleeping. shhh….it might wake up!

There are a lot of places in Mati that are truly haven. They say that Dahican is one of the most popular destinations in Mati with clear waters and had a 17-kilometer pure and fine white sand shore. I will surely say that Dahican would be the next place I want to explore. See you soon Dahican.

Truly Mati is a place worth to be discover. I am here, got challenged…now I explore.
