A few years ago, we went to Mati City for my sister’s birthday–it was just a 24 hour, quick visit to Davao Oriental. Mama was very apprehensive on this idea because we do not know how to swim and one police stations was just attacked and bombed.
On getting there:
- From Davao City Ecoland Terminal or Tagum Overland Transport Integrated Terminal, take a bus to Mati, Davao Oriental.
- Bus fare: P200 – P300
Where to Stay? When we went to Mati in 2015, there were no several resorts in Dahican yet. There’s only Amihan sa Dahican and Dahican Surf Resort. By that time, the public beach is available and to stay there is at your own risk.
- We rented a tent overnight for P300 (this might have changed over the years) @ Amihan sa Dahican or you could simply tap Winston Plaza if you need accommodation.
- Dahican Surf Resort is just beside the Amihan sa Dahican.
Here are 5 things to see and do if you are in Mati City for a quick visit.
