latest stop this summer 09: Mati

2 days after i arrived back home here in Davao from Manila, i then went to Mati to have another trip with friends.. hehe.. well, its summer, why not?! this time, we went to Mati and stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights.. and for that short vacation, we hopped in 3 beautiful resorts -- Cinco Masao Beach Resort and Wanniban Island for our first 2 days and 2 nights, and Dahican for our last day. Actually, we're supposedly bound to 2 islands for our island hopping on our second day stay in Mati (masao) but we have only visited Wanniban Island that time since the waves going to Pujada Island is kinda not-so-safe for travelling, so to be safe we only hopped in one island from Masao, the Wanniban Island.. We should have visited 4 different "paradise" if only our plan was followed! hehe.. but anyway, here are some raw pix i can share..

Cinco Masao
(i don't have lots of pix of Cinco Masao since its kind of hard to take a pic of it, it doesn't have seashore as you notice the cottages are situated in the sea premise itself as in in the water... hehe..)

Wanniban Island
(this is a not-so-developed island, almost virgin! A part of the island is so rocky, good for taking pictures.. hehe.. But there's also a part perfect for swimming... white sand, crystal clear water -- so nice!)

(this is what i like the most among all we've visited in Mati.. why? because of my funny reason! i think this is a good place for the not-so-good in swimming like me.. the waves are very big in Dahican, most likely for surfers out there, so no need to swim, just face the waves, jump over it or sometimes under it if its too big and high to jump over! you will really feel the spank of the waves in your body and face and its really really fun! hahaha.. it is also not developed but see how such a beautiful place left unnoticed?! good to have seen the real beauty of Dahican before the water becomes a little polluted or the place becomes crowded like some commercial resorts, who knows, right?! anyway, right after Dahican is actually the Pacific Ocean that's why Dahican has so big waves..)
