After, searching for the perfect spots for skimboarding here in Samal Island finally we landed to Pigasaan, Samal Island .

Isla Malipano is an island among several Samal islands, just a 5 minute speedboat ride from the more famous Pearl Farm Resort. But first, you must take the 90 minute flight from Manila to Davao, then the 1 hour boat ride to Samal Island's Pearl Farm. ;-) Morning flights to Davao went as early as 6am, but we opted to take the 10am flight. We landed half an hour before noon and the shuttle took us for a short ride to the Pearl Farm jetty port. We were served a buffet lunch just before taking the boat that will ferry us to Samal Island. Pearl Farm is so called because it actually was a Pearl Farm sometime back. But it is now one of the pricey resorts in the country and appeals mainly to honeymooners, ... read more
