Canibad Beach Samal

Canibad Beach Resort in Baranggay Aundanao Samal is perhaps one of the most undeveloped yet most naturally-beautiful resorts to visit in Samal. For the longest time, Canibad has been adored for its laid-back and secluded atmosphere. There are no classy restaurants constructed nor are there first-class room accommodations situated in the area. So if you want to spend a night at Canibad then you have to bring your own tent and your own food.

How to get there:

If you want more convenience then it is highly recommended for you to bring your personal vehicle from Davao City and just take it to Sasa 11 barge. There are two options to get to Canibad it’s either you take the babak baranggay highway to Aundanao or Penaplata. But Penaplata is the best route to choose. Travel time may take around 2 hours from the city proper.

On the other hand if you can’t bring your own vehicle, you may still ridge the barge then rent a multicab or a single motorcycle to take you to Canibad Beach.
