 Paradise IslandKAI_3252-3

Paradise Island can truthfully boast of its humble phases of development from being just an ordinary picnic spot way back in 1970’s to an island escape spot for individuals from all walks of life, who wish to insert fun and relaxation in their very busy schedules at a place that is very accessible. Paradise’ white sand beach and its environment are well-maintained the entire day, offering only a clean and relaxing setting for its tourists and visitors.

How to get there:

From the Paradise Island Jump off point in Sasa, Paradise Island is just a 5-10 minutes ferry boat ride from the city, Paradise can be reached easily thru a ferry boat ride. For those who wish to bring their cars with them you need not to worry since Paradise has a huge parking area that can accommodate a huge number of guests.

The first regular boat trip leaves the port at 5:00 am and last trip is at 5:00 pm. Special trips may be arranged with the Management but with a different price quotation.

Vanishing IslandVanishing Island

Vanishing Island is a little narrow piece of white sand lying just near the coasts of Tambo, Babak in Samal. The island can be only viewed during low tide and can be visible from afar due to some houses afloat on the surface of the sea. The floating cottages are created for tourists who would opt to spend a longer time in the island. With Vanishing Island’s clear waters and scenic sub aqua view of the coral sanctuaries, the island is deemed as one of the finest diving and snorkelling spots in Davao Region.

How to get there:

You may take a boat ride from Baranggay Tambo of Babak which is reachable thru a 15 minute trip from Km 11, Sasa Warf. From Babak, you may take a single motorcycle to lead you to Marex Resort. Round trip transfers to Vanishing Island for a huge group costs around Php 500 while for smaller crowds, a smaller boat can be also hired at around Php 250.
