Just off the east coast of Davao is a quaint beach resort called Costa Marina located at Caliclic, Babak District, Island Garden City of Samal. For about 15 minutes of boat ride at less than Php10 per head, you’re off to the beach with a great view of the city.
The place is just one of the resorts along the strip of the Samal Island Garden but according to the locals, it is one of the two most frequented beaches by The Davaoeños. Forgot how much the entrance fee was but I think it was around Php20 only.
The expansive gray-sand beach is shaded by trees stretching from end to end. You can practically go there, take a quick dip, have lunch and go back home in less than two hours. How’s that for a noon-time office break?
Oh, and did I mention that the food is also great? Yes, tons of fresh sea foods.
