Ida Damo | Apr 07, 2016
The Island Buenavista is the 4-hectare Small Ligid Island in Samal, Davao del Norte. The island has a beautiful resort and an area which serves as a sanctuary for giant clams and other marine life.
Being one with the sun, sea, sand and serenity without the maddening crowd is what draws you to the island. Celebrities have found refuge in the island because privacy and security are guaranteed.
For PhP105,000, one can enjoy the whole island to yourself or 10 of your friends or family. No one else is allowed within the island except for the staff that would treat you with utmost care.
So what do you do with all the serenity? Your day can be spent getting a tan by lounging on the powdery soft white sand or swimming in its crystal clear gentle and calm water.
Kayak or snorkel to your heart’s content and explore the coral reefs. Scuba divers have enjoyed the rich underwater marine life surrounding the island.
