Ten Must-Do in Dakak Park and Beach Resort.

1. Enjoy Dakak's white-sand beach.
The resort has a beautiful white-sand beach with clear blue waters. Go swimming, banana-boating, or just sit by the shore and enjoy the view. Relax, read a book, or just listen to the waves while waiting for the sunset.

2. Go on an adventure.
Risk life and limb by visiting Dakak's Adventure Zone. Go ziplining, rappelling, mountain-climbing, scuba diving, horseback riding, or drive around on an ATV.

3. Go Cove-Hopping.
Visit a bat cave, a fisherman's village, and neighboring beaches.

4. Go on a River-Cruise and Fish Pond Tour.
This tour will end at the Kinilaw ug Inihaw sa Fishpond Restaurant. They serve crabs, oysters, milkfish, prawns, and other favorite filipino dishes. I had my first meal there when I arrived. And I totally loved the food! The river cruise was quite relaxing, too.

5. Visit Aliguay Island.
The island has white sand (with lots of corals) and deep blue waters. Just perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and diving.  The island has rooms if you want to stay overnight. Or, you can set up your own tent.  It is about 45 minutes from Dakak by fast craft.


Fare (roundtrip) via M/Y Serpentina from pier 1:
Php 275/person

Overnight stay at Family Pavilion:
Php 5,000.00 minimum of 10pax/room
(in excess of 10 persons, an additional Php 500.00/pax)

6. Have a romantic dinner by the beach.
If you are going there with someone you love, nothing could be more perfect than having dinner by the beach with the amazing Dakak sunset on the background.

7. Dine at Il Patio.
I totally love Dakak's italian restaurant Il Patio. They serve delightful italian food there with the freshest and authentic italian ingredients. My favorite? The four-cheese with tomato and basil pizza!

Also, do not miss the resort's breakfast and dinner buffets!

8. Be a kid again at Fantasyland.
Watch their spectacular show, enjoy the rides, and yes, just be a kid again! Start (or end) your Fantasyland visit with a sumptuous dinner at Fresh Harvest (located at Gloria de Dapitan). Good food!

9. Get pampered.
Have some me-time at the jacuzzi, relax in the sauna, or get a delicious massage at the VIP Spa or at *Hilot.

*Hilot is at Gloria de Dapitan.

10. Try and bring home some banana chips.
The best banana chips on the planet. No kidding! : ) For orders, call the Local Council of Women Project, 0910 6141177.

  1. Wow, am happy that Dakak is improving! :) Hope to go back there someday.

  2. Aaahh!! I'm from the south but have never been too Dakak.;/ Have to visit the soonest! Is the sand like Boracay?

    1. It is white, like the sand in Boracay. But it is not as fine. Not sure though because the last time I was in Boracay was many years ago! :) Go visit, Wella! The vibe in Dakak is not like Boracay, but it is charming and definitely worth visiting. :)

  3. I was supposed to go there back when I was really young together with my dad, but because of his arthritis, naiwan kami ng barge papuntang dakak. :)) He was limping from the bus to the port tapos yun, di na namin inabutan. HAHAHAHA! Sana next time makakapunta na talaga ako ng Dakak. Nice post ate Ai! :) Love the pictures!

    1. That is a funny story, Kyle! :D I hope you get to visit one day. And thank you. :)

  4. Kahit sino makakita pictures dito, for sure gugustuhin nya na pumunta Dakak. Ang ganda.

  5. I should include Dakak in the family's list of places to visit. :) Been there more than 10 years ago but I don't think it was this beautiful then.

    1. The kids would love Dakak, Mi! Three pools, an adventure zone, a beautiful beach, and Fantasyland! : )

  6. This is a very helpful and awesome post! We have already planned our trip to Dakak on the third week of August and we're surely gonna check out some of these :)

    1. That's wonderful! Enjoy! And do not miss the breakfast buffet. Haha.

  7. Wow, Aileen! This is so helpful. Me and my friends will go there on the 23rd. Weeeh! We are so excited now.
