When we arrived in Davao our first itinerary is Dahican Beach since it’s the farthest. From Davao City, it will take about 4 hours of land travel to reach to Dahican.
We booked the Dahican Surf Resort (DSR) for a night stay. The ambiance of the resort is fit for backpackers. Beds are not as comfortable as common resorts and some rooms have a hammock. The washing and comfort area is shared as well as the kitchen area.
They have a restaurant/bar called Surf Shack Beach Bar and Grill which is time-dependent; it is not open until the specified time. Though kudos to their food as it taste really good!
The place is perfect for youngsters who seek a little adventure and at the same time a quiet place to chill and unwind for a little bit.
When we arrived in the resort, we did not see waves that fit for surfing similar to Siargao. However, their waves on the shore are perfect for skimboarding.
Tip: Bring food and water, they have a shared kitchen thus you can cook your own meal if you don’t want to order in their restaurant. Water is very important, there’s no nearby convenient store and the sari-sari stores may not have bottled water for sale.
Overall, the accommodation is not for someone who prefers comfort and convenient. It’s for people who’s standard is flexible and a backpacker character.
