Restaurants at Discovery Samal

Because of the size of this resort, it is fair for them to have such a wide set of options of restaurants for people to choose from. Each of these restaurants also serve a different purpose and cater to a specific taste. For example, they have the Haribar Lounge where you can have the best cocktails in the world. These plus the light snacks available are literal heaven.

If you want to savor fresh seafood sourced and caught locally, Morning Catch is the perfect restaurant for you. Not only are their dishes perfectly cooked, but the restaurant is also located somewhere you can have an amazing view of the beach, allowing you to both see, smell, and eat the sea.

Having to check some emails, catch up on a little bit of work, you may crave somewhere quiet, and somewhere you can sip a nice cup of coffee. In Discovery Samal, Garden City Cafe is the place for this.

Aquatic Adventures

Some of us don’t want a chill vacation, and luckily, Discovery Samal remains a place that caters to adrenaline junkies as well. At Coral Gardens in Talicud Island, you can snorkel your heart out and discover the thriving ecosystem in the area. 

Both an adventure site and a wildlife conservation center, The Monfort Bat Cave is perfect for those who want to feel the thrill of going into a cave to look at animals in an environment meant to protect them. The area takes good care of the population of these bats exactly because they play a vital role in seed dispersal and pollination, aside from the mere preservation of species of course.

Moreover, you may visit Vanishing Island at Sanipaan Marine Park if you want to witness the recession and resurgence of the water, moving dynamically within the island. It is definitely a view to witness, and something you don’t want to miss if you come to the resort.
