Kanakbai Resort in Dahican, Mati

Written by Ria Jose

I am not a beach person, but if I were to visit one beach over and over again, it would be Dahican in Mati, Davao Oriental. The reason why I’m in love with Dahican is the gorgeous yet relatively deserted beach coupled with the very modern amenities of Kanakbai Resort.

First, look at the shoreline…

So tranquil and quiet. And yes, a bit deserted. This is right in front of Kanakbai Resort. Only a few minutes walk away from one of the most exciting surfing spots in the country.

The bed rooms are airconditioned. It has two queen sized beds and an extra mattress. Kanakbai provides towels and basic toiletries for their guests.

Each house also has a living room area with comfortable couches and a television set. Each house also has a fully equipped kitchen with a double burner, a refrigerator, a water heater, a microwave oven, a toaster, and all the utensils, plates, serving platters, cookware, and kitchen tools you need. And yes, a hot and cold water dispenser. I love the kitchen, obviously. An outdoor grill may also be used.
