Little Boracay in Davao Occidental

Davao Occidental is the newest province in the Philippines located at Davao Region. From Davao Ecoland Terminal, it will took you 3-4 hours bus ride to reach its first municipality, Santa Maria, where the Little Boracay is located.

Upon arrival in Santa Maria Terminal, you may opt to buy food at the nearby karinderias before heading to Little Boracay. There is only one store in the resort that sells basic needs.

It was called Little Boracay by the locals dahil daw ganito ang itsura ng Boracay dati nung hindi pa masyadong commercialized. 🙂 It has a fine grayish sand, pristine waters and coconut trees that adds beauty to the beach. We visited it on a weekday, thus, there were no other guests that time aside from us and the local fishermen.

After few hours of chilling at the beach, we got back to Davao City and transferred to another bus bound to Tagum.
