Kanaan: The Other Side Of Samal

The Island Garden City of Samal has always been the much loved beach getaway of Davao people like me. Two reasons. First, going to its nearest resort will take just around 5 to 10 minutes boat ride from Davao City. Second, Samal is an island blessed with different beach wonders ranging from coral filled shores, refined white sand beaches, vanishing Islands, perfect dive spot locations, beautiful first class and second rate resorts and a lot lot more.

I have personally been to the different places in Samal but like everybody says there’s more fun waiting to discover.

So this time, together with my Apo View Hotel’s Diamond Club team , we went to the other side of the Island - KANAAN.

Kanaan is one of the Barangay consisting Samal. It is situated at the eastern part of the island.

Unlike some barangays near the Penaplata, Kanaan is not blessed with cemented or concrete roads. Going there especially for those who hate bumpy road, road trip going to Kanaan can be a disaster. Most of the roads were bloody muddy. Some were creepy cliffy giving everyone of us a great scream. Some roads were even so scary giving us nerves that our vehicle will turn upside down. But for adventurers and thrill seekers like me, it’s a helluva fun! Hehehe!

Upon reaching the resort, we checked the place right away. Kanaan Beach is not a sandy nor a pebbly beach. It is a coral rocky beach surrounded with vegetation, an indication that it is not much visited by beach goers.

For my Apo View Diamond Club team, the place is just a perfect for team building activity. We were the only group in the resort, so, literally we owned the place. And it's just a perfect place too feasting over mouth watering foods.

For picture-addict individuals, Kanaan Beach can be of a place for a picture perfect shots. Here are some.

Kanaan Beach may not be as fantabulous as those other beach getaways I had been, it still is a place to remember. Quite, solemn, unspoiled.

Come try Kanaan – who knows, there’s more to see than what’s I’ve seen.

replica shoes are NOT sales tags, but baby covering keyfobs adorning the alfresco of a Coach purse. They are ALWAYS covering and arresting with the chat "Coach". The alone way a absolute authentic gucci replica would appear with a metal hangtag is if it was a bound edition. The metal hangtag would consistently be accompanied by one or two covering hangtags, or clear studded. If you see a purse with a metal hangtag alone (often gold-colored), it is fake, or at the actual atomic its authenticity should be questioned!The easiest way to acquaint whether a dior replica is affected or absolute is by the central lining of the purse. For absolute purses, it will be a solid-color glassy material. There are exceptions to this aphorism in the Legacy band of purses, but back this is a basal adviser I am not touching on that. Affected louis vuitton replica purses may be lined with solid-colored cottony (very rarely, alone high-quality knock-offs will accept this), or abundant added generally with the "signature C" lining apparent in the account below.

Have you ever wondered how much does a Hermes handbags cost?Louis Vuitton Handbag doesn’t produce only Birkin and Kelly. I came across these days on a beautiful, simple, yet elegant bag from Fake Mulberry .And guess what! An original one is around $9400, a lot of money if you ask me, but I found the same Rolex Watches (a replica obviously)only $306.90. This is almost a bargain! No, not almost. It is a bargain given that the replica Rolex Air Kingis so close to the original that you can hardly make the difference.
