Babu Santa Beach Resort

Babu Santa is located on the tip part of the island so, both sides of the resort have something great to offer. Going further on the left you will be able to see the home of the locals and some rocky terrain. On the opposite side are palm trees lining the sea shore and shallow water. It gives a rocky view for a nice picturesque on this side of the resort.

From the beautiful natural landscape of the resort, divers can move on to the coral garden and see for themselves the bounty of the marine life.
One thing that the guests will enjoy from this resort is its crystal clear water that you can just see the corals without using goggles or any other snorkeling gadgets. So I say you’ll save up thousands and just enjoy the marine life with your naked eye.

Babu Santa offers the sky, the white sand, the beach, and the wide surrounding for different type of guests – whether it’s for an adventurous tourist, romantic couples, or for the weary soul. You can either enjoy both the sun and the beach in a serene environment. This beach resort has rooms and cottages made in a simple design.  Read More:

I’m talking about Tagum in Davao del Norte, in which lies Banana Beach in Hijo Estate Resorts—a 760-hectare expanse of leisure space, rivers, forests, and plantations. Imagine everything you could possibly want in a getaway all together in one place: beach, sea, river, forest, comfortable lodging, activities, food, and many more! It’s a dream come true for any traveler seeking the perfect hideaway.

Just an hour and a half drive from Davao City, Banana Beach is situated at the heart of Davao gulf in Madaum, Tagum City, a little—no, enormous—piece of paradise that instantly throws away all the stresses related to city living, a respite from all things toxic. The resort caters to both peace lovers and adventure seekers—how they have managed to combine two opposing worlds, I have no idea. All I know is that I am a bit of both, and I had an amazing time at Banana Beach.  Read More:
