Exploring the City of Mati

City of Mati in Davao Oriental was my Voyage Stop last weekend. The City of Mati is 165.6 kms. from Davao City. It is the capital town of Davao Oriental. I've been to this little new city for several times now. But it seems to me that there are more things to discover here every visit I've made. More things to experience. And more reasons to come back. Maybe, the City and its rich beauty is just so enchanting that every year I long to visit and savor its splendor.

Thus, the next few posts will feature my Voyage along with my friends to the City of Mati. Being there last weekend, i realize that there are more to explore. More to tell. More to share. And MOST OF ALL, more to blog about it! LOL!

Here's a little peek to this Voyage!:

DAHICAN BEACH - famous for its long stretch of white sand and its clean crystal clear blue-green waters facing the mighty Pacific Ocean. It is undeniably a perfect beach enticing adventurous people like me to experience a great thrill of skimboarding and kayaking.
CINCO MASAO BEACH RESORT - is approximately 18 km from Mati Poblacion located at Sitio Dita, Barangay Bobon. It is resting stop overlooking Pujada Bay and is being secured w/ the railing that enhances the ambience of the beach.

Gregorio-Dita White Sand Beach Resort - situated beside Cinco-Masao Beach Resort and home of Philippine Tarsier locally known as "Mago". One can see this Nocturnal creature face to face in captivity.
BOTONA BEACH RESORT - Lies along the 7 kilometers stretch of the famous Dahican white sand beach. This 2 hectares fully fenced beach resort in Purok Maribujok, Dahican houses two (2) units European inspired rest houses where one can feel the comfort of home equipped with air-conditioned rooms with toilet and home entertainment facility.
THE SLEEPING DINOSUAR - This natural attraction is approximately 579 hectares located at Sitio Baso of Barangay Badas.It is visible upon passing the eight (8) kilometers winding roads of Badas going to Mati from Davao City.
GUANG GUANG MANGROVE PARK & NURSERY - The joint project of Guang-Guang Community and the DENR, serving as the habitat of Marine lives. This is a vast magrove forest of different mangrove trees of different varieties that provides a good spawning grounds for marine lives.
These are among the few attractions me and my friends experience in this Charming City. But actually, it has more to offer and more to see!!!next posts will be more on Mati Adventures.

Wow! astig! astig! final na to. next year i'll schedule a davao trip. kasi mindanao ang target ko. trip na trip ko ang Dahican, Cinco Masau at Gregorio-Dita.

ganda ng mga cottage ng Cinco Masau parang Bora Bora sa French Polnesia ang dating.

i'll visit three places in mindanao and it'll be davao, siargao and saranganni.

maraming salamat sa mga pictures. convincing talaga.

dami pang kailangan i-promote ang DOT. sarap mabuhay sa pinas!

Wow! Your blog is very interesting. I love to travel, too, but with my work, I don't get to travel much.

I've been to Mati, too...that was long time ago. I've been to Dahican beach but we were not able to swim there because the waves were strong. We also went to a tortoise sanctuary, too...I forgot what it was called.

*Linking you to my blog... :D
