    Visit Dakak Beach Resort This resort is more on the expensive side perfect for those who prefer isolation as the resort is located in a cove all its own, bounded by tall hills and cliffs. Luxurious cottages are hidden beyond the coconut trees lining the entire length of the resort's white-sand beach.

    Hit the Greens Play golf amidst the scenic backdrop of the formidable Mr. Apo. Spread along a vast coconut plantation the 18-hole Apo Golf and Country Club is a challenge to local and international golfers. One can also play in the 18-hole Lanang Golf and Country Club, ten minutes from downtown Davao, and the 9-hole New Davao City Golf Club in Matina. Wining and Dining The diversity of people living in Davao translates into an exciting culinary adventure. Finding a new or exotic type of cuisine is no problem here. For starters, hop on to the Luz Kinilaw Place at the Sta. Ana Wharf. Sample the bariles (tuna) or panga (head of tuna) skewered over hot coals then dipped in a mixture of soy sauce and lemon. There are also grilled prawns, squid and other seafood. Or drop by F. Torres Street, Davao's proverbial restaurant row. One can also visit the Madrazo Fruit Center for some durian or rambutan Climb Up the Apo At 10,311 feet, Mt. Apo is the tallest in the Philippines. Virtually unexplored, Mt. Apo provides a variety of nature's spectacular landscape, from forest greens and sulfur pillars to majestic waterfalls and untamed rivers. Mt. Apo lies on the boundaries of Davao, North Cotabato and Bukidnon. For amateurs, it's best to join organized climbs for the safest trail up the mountain. Dabaw Museum Located inside the Davao Insular Village, the museum is a showcase of the province's colorful heritage. On display are tribal arts, crafts, costumes, weapons, musical instruments and other paraphernalia from the highland tribes. Contemporary artists have a place on the second floor's modern gallery. Into the Deep Explore the marvelous underwater horizons of Davao Gulf's numerous dive sites. Dive deep at Mushroom Rock, Ligid Island, Talicud Island, Pearl Farm of Isla Malipano all in Samal Island. These dive sites are only 45 to 120 minutes away from the city proper. Other dive spots are located in Sarangani and Balut Islands in Davao de Sur and San Isidro (Davao Oriental). Samal Island For some fun in the sun, visit Samal Island in Davao del Norte. A pristine island with coves of white sand beaches, Samal Island also offers diving and snorkeling opportunities with its lively underwater menagerie.
