Day 6 Sept 18 Sat
Left GenSan 7am via Yellow Bus, again the sceneries are great. Digos is equally great like the rest. Got to Davao 10:30am, to a taxi to Sta. Ana Warf and got on the boat of Jessa3 (P50) to Talicod Island and another habal habl (P10) to the Beach Resort. Got a text from Isla Reta Reservation that there is a service picking us up for 1pm, so we waited and transfer to the service boat of the resort (P70).
We arrive 2:30pm. A bellboy carried my dive bag like a backpack and took us to the resort lobby. The island have a bit of white powderish sand, lots of coral rubbles, shaded shoreline because of the big Talisay tress which is ideal for beach bumming. In front of us is the Samal Island where the sunrise is. Visitors can bring in food, but it is also nice to try the fresh catch for the day. We ate super fresh steam talakitok for late lunch. The island is generator run from 5pm to 6am.Bermuda grass to our cottage. We have our twin room w private bath (P800), other are cottages (P700) w common bath. All the rooms have screen. Mosquitos comes out 4pm to 6pm, that’s why we stayed in the water till it is really dark. Did snorkel but was told that the corals are better at the coral garden. It is a noisy night, a birthday party with their own music at the right side of the beach, another at the left side of the beach, and the public videoke at the center. Really noisy, but with the moon shine piercing between the leaves and branches of talisay tree while swimming at the powdery side of the beach with new wave background music, I decided to that everything is PERFECT.
Dinner is equally perfect, big chunk of Tuna sugba and my durian pie. He he he he napapapikit sa sarap ng bawat kagad ng durian.
