Canibad Beach Resort

Canibad Beach Resort



Canibad Beach Resort (at Aundanao, Samal Island) is located at the other side of Samal Island facing Davao Oriental a 20km drive from Babak proper. Another place to relax and unwind at Samal Island.

Canibad is actually a sea by the foot of the mountains. So when you get there, you will see the vastness of the sea on top of a hill while coconut trees and mountains greet you welcome to Canibad! You’ll have to go down a very steep trail before reaching the white sand and the cool blue waters of the beach. The coastline is just about two kilometers with very fine white sand, pebbles and some big pile of rocks on its edges.

It is one of the beach resorts that is less developed, so tourists and guests should not expect to see class restaurants and air-conditioned rooms. For those who want to stay overnight at the beach, it is advisable to bring a tent with you, but cottages are also available for around P200 pesos per night. Since there is no restaurants in the area, cooking your own food in designated areas is a good idea.

The people on Canibad seemed joyous as they gathered around their bonfires, drinking, eating, cajoling, and doing other forms of merrymaking by the beach or in their tents. After all, in that paradise that has escaped the usual crowd at the more accessible beaches on the other side of Samal Island, one couldn’t help but feel free and far away, in a place that affords everyone more private space.

    hi i’m interested in going to Canibad Beach Resort. But I will arrive in Davao at night. Where can I stay so I can easily go to Canibad? Any suggestions?

  • Kaiser

    Canibad is really a nice place to visit. I can still remember 5 years ago when I first went here with my friends. The place is a good place to relax. No big buildings, no smoke from cars and far away from a crowed Davao city. I was thinking of going back to Canibad coz some of my friends told me that this place improved already. i hope they preserved the place
