Marvel at the diverse natural attractions in Samal Island, a popular beach destination just 48 km away from Davao City. This private tour will let you visit three unique locations in Samal Island, namely Monfort Bat Cave, Hagimit Falls, and Paradise Resort, with an itinerary planned within a comfortable 8 hour time frame. This sightseeing tour includes admission fees to attractions, boat transfers, a sumptuous barbecue lunch, a private air-conditioned transport service with pick up and drop off points within Davao City, as well as a tour guide who will be with you throughout the tour.
Your first stop is the Monfort Bat Cave in Barangay Tambo, an eco-tourism site that holds the 2010 Guinness World Record for the largest known population of harmless fruit bat species called Geoffrey’s Rousette bats. As the only mammals capable of true flight, the non-migratory bats can be seen hanging on the walls, spending most of the day sound asleep.
The next stop is Hagimit Falls Nature Park in Penaplata, roughly 15km away from the Monfort Bat Cave. Shallow streams of water emerge from various sloping rock heights around the vicinity, where the water gently plunges into the turquoise pool beneath it. Surrounded by lush greenery and a refreshing riverbank, make sure you pack a swimsuit so that you can enjoy a quick dip in the cool water beneath the cascading falls.
The last stop is at Paradise Island Park and Beach Resort, the perfect place to sample a laidback beach lifestyle before heading back to your hotel. The resort boasts of more than 300km of white sand, a playground, an ice cream kiosk, water sports, and recreational games, all in one place. This island getaway is known for its large swimming area and diving zones, so on your next trip back, you can opt to book a hotel to enjoy the facilities at a more leisurely pace.
