Having a beach break is such a big deal for most beach lovers. Nothing compares to the salt in the air and sand on your hair. And as far as having a perfect getaway, going to resorts are quite expensive. Or so they say. That’s why a lot of people settle for crowded and overrated beach resorts because of budget constraints.
Samal Island, or formally the Island Garden City of Samal is home to many beaches- private or public. For people from the city, the island is such a convenient getaway since it is just minutes way from the city. A newly opened village resort is what most people have been talking about these days. The Cavanico il ma re Beach Resort happens to be the go-to resort in Davao these days.
The Cavanico il ma re Beach Resort is actually a high-end subdivision with beach line developed by Davao Elite Properties. There are 400 units for sale for the resort subdivision. Apart from the beach line, the developers are also planning for different amenities like coco bar, pool dip, tree court, gazebo, a hammock cove, children’s play area and even a mini football lawn area.
As high-end and as private as it may sound, the resort subdivision opened its doors to the general public or to non-lot owners. Currently, only the Phase 1 is open where the beach-line is located and Phase 2 is still ongoing. This is where they will build the infinity pool, floating pool and villas over the sea- giving an El Nido or Coron vibe just within Davao’s reach.
Entrance fee at Cavanico il ma re Beach Resort costs at 100php and a nipa cottage is available for 300php. Overnight rooms and villas are available which costs from 1500-4000php depending on the room size and number of people checking in.
There are different activities that you, your family and friends can enjoy like jetski, banana boat, kayaking and snorkeling. These activities may come with a price but it is affordable and you will surely enjoy doing them with friends or family. But if you opt to relax and enjoy the scenic view, you can always walk around the white sand beach and enjoy the breeze.
