Taklobo Sanctuary

Samal Island's Giant Clam Sanctuary was built to save the giant clams from extinction in Davao City. It is situated on a lovely island in the tranquil barangay of Adecor. If you're visiting Davao City or Samal Island, this tourist spot needs to be on your itinerary.  The sanctuary has about 3,000 huge clams that are cared for by the personnel and a local community named Adecor United Fisher-folks Organization.

Before the Taclobo trip, you must attend a briefing that covers the do's and don'ts of the huge clam encounter. The important rule is to never touch or walk on the clams while swimming under the water for nearly an hour. Your tour guide will inform you about the clams' ages and even identify the largest one. Clams come in a variety of hues. They appear to be bright blossoms under the water, and no one suspects their true age, which is generally more than ten years.


How to get there

The quickest method to travel to the Giant Clam Sanctuary is to take a boat to Kaputian Beach, which takes around an hour of travel time.


Best time to visit

It is best visited during the weekdays, as it tends to get crowded on weekends.
