Dakak Beach Resort – Why I Visited the Majestic Beach Resort
Dakak Beach Resort was included in my vacation checklist during my heritage tours to Dapitan- the Shrine City of the Philippines. Hence, after my visit to the Rizal Shrine, I told the driver to bring me and my wife to Dakak Beach Resort which came to limelight after being chosen as one of the preliminary swimsuit competition venues of the 1994 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant.
After a 30- minute drive on a newly-completed portland cement concrete pavement project, this comely welcome signage had attracted my attention . . .
A few more minutes of travel and we reached the holding area where we were told to alight and park our vehicle. . .
After paying the PhP 200.00 per head entrance fee for sightseeing and free swimming on the beach and the use of the bath and dressing rooms, we boarded on the shuttle van en route to the resort proper. We passed by bungalows tucked on a scenic hillside overlooking the sea. I noticed busy workers engaged in construction works beside the winding road leading to the beach until the shuttle stopped on this area. . .
I was enthralled when the 750-meter long, powdery white sand Dakak Beach was captured by my eyes. . .
I could not help but admire at the array of island water sports facilities being displayed at the Aqua Sports Center with the jet ski cruising at Dakak Bay serving as an added attraction. . .
I felt very fortunate as birds hovered over me as I took shots of the tantalizing Dakak Beach . . .
Eager to know what are in store inside the resort, I strolled at the amenities situated within the beach front and was awe-inspired with the sight of the swimming pools of Dakak Beach Resort . . .
I and my wife then took time to have a souvenir photo at the pool side . . .
This structure adjacent to the adult swimming pool had caught my attention . . .
A further walk deeper inside the resort brought me to the newly-constructed Thai Restaurant . . .
After spending for quite some time in the beach front, we decided to go uphill passing by comely bungalows aptly designed with the verandas over looking Dakak Bay. . .
A further walk led me to some other important amenities of Dakak Beach Resort . . .
We then boarded the shuttle bus and traveled back to the holding area.
Dakak Beach Resort – Final Thoughts
As an island vacations aficionado, savoring the minute, beautifully-shaped Dakak Bay; stepping on the powdery white sand of Dakak Beach; gazing at the pristine blue waters of the Sulu Sea and wandering around the built-up areas of the 15-hectares wood land is a very rewarding experience. Truly, a visit to Dakak Beach Resort is tantamount to a trip to a tropical Eden.
