Isla Reta Beach Resort

Posted by on Apr 20, 2012 in Davao | No Comments

After spending the night at Dayang Beach Resort, it’s time for me to go to Davao City to catch an evening flight to Manila. But since there’s no ferry that leaves from Dayang, I needed to go to Sta. Cruz port. Unfortunately, mode of transportation is only limited by hiring outrigger boat or habal-habal (single motor bike.). I chose the latter. The ride is approximately 15-20 mins of up and down of rough road hill.

Finally, Isla Reta Resort. I was surprise of how good their beach front was. Very clear shallow water. A very nice thing for swimming.


The resort is not class a. Their cottages may not be top notch but it can hold its own. For the price, I can’t ask for more. It’s only 800 pesos ($20 more or less) for an overnight stay. No air-conditioning unit. Salt water on the faucet. But hey, it’s a resort within an island. This is not something new. They serve food and there’s a store inside the vicinity.


As I explore the resort, I found some interesting subject to shoot. By the way, Isla Reta resort is a stone throw away from Sta. Cruz port, your gateway to and from Davao City.





I spent only few hours in Isla Reta but I will definitely treasure the memories. I will be back given a chance to spend the night to have a sunset/sunrise shoot.


The ferry leaves at 1:30 pm bound to Davao City.
