Davao isn’t just springs, falls, forests, and mountains, a salty gem can also be found here.

Located in Davao Oriental, Bakkayan Beach Resort is a relaxing and cozy beach resort that brings us the cottage garden feels right beside the sea.

Its whole area is covered with gray pebbles making the ground look both elegant and tropical at the same time.

The water of Bakkayan Beach Resort is nestled in a curve haven that makes it kind of more intimate and protected from strong winds.

Cozy Cottages and Quaint Rooms

They have fully Airconditioned rooms and a collection of beautiful rustic cottages that are ready for you to place yourself in and lounge around all day.

Each room even has its own terrace and a karaoke perfect for a morning coffee with the sea breeze or an epic sing-off to end the day full of activities.

They also have free tables with umbrella for the food you bring as there is still no restaurant so you need to bring your own food. But they do have a small store to buy what you need and you can even let someone cook for you depending on your agreement with the caretaker or just cook them yourselves.

It is also a famous diving spot too so it’s an activity you don’t want to miss if you visit the place.
