hello again Mati 05.16.15

When summer starts, one of the go-to places in Mindanao is Dahican Mati, Davao Oriental. Why? There's a yearly summer beach party called SUMMERFROLIC where the best DJ's, event organizers, surfers, and party goers get together.



With no plans of going to the summerfrolic festival, I was able to visit Mati the month after. Last May 16th I went on a trip to Mati with boyfie and his family (BTW, it's a first). It is best advised to have your own mode of transportation or rent a van rather than commuting. 

It was a 3-hour trip from Davao City. Before we reached Dahican we had 5 stops: 

1) Davao Oriental landmark

2) Sleeping Dinosaur view deck

3) Mati baywalk

4) Mati Capitol - sorry I didn't took photos of the building and the surroundings.


5) Blue Bless Resort for Lunch

Then finally, the BEACH!!! The beauty of the beach is unarguable. For a minute you'd succumb to silence and just let your eyes feast and wander at the scenery. The ombré ocean would take your breath away. The white sand beach is accented through the long beach line. The waves are perfect for skimboarding and the not-so-strong wind makes a good day for powered paragliding.


So, go pack your bags and visit Mati. It is highly suggested if you are a beach person.
