Pearl Farm is one of the famous resorts in the country. Fortunately, I got the chance to visit this place last February. Please be sure to book in advance for the accommodation.

The trip will start in Pearl Farm Marina located somewhere in Davao City. You can ask a cab to drop you off in Marina.

I was there at exactly 7:00 am, though the boat will fetch you at 8:00am for the first trip going to Pearl Farm Resort.

From Marina to Pearl Farm, it will take you approximately 20-30 minutes of scenic ride. The water were calm during my tour but I’m not sure if its the same for the entire year.

Pearl Farm resort? It’s nice… a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Since check in time is 2:00 pm and I was there at 9:00 am, I took the opportunity to roam around and take pictures of the resort.

The other side of the resort you will find a less crowded ambiance. You’ll find Mandaya houses here.

I went farther to take pictures of not so common sight you’ll find in the Internet.

Some of you may find it rocky, yes you’re right. But this is the other side of the resort of Pearl Farm. An eye candy for photographer like me.

After few hours of picture taking and lunch, it’s time for me to check in. The room I chose is called the Balay. Why? Because it’s the cheapest room in Pearl Farm and it suited on top of the hill with a magnificent view of the island.

The room is nice in my opinion.

What I like in Pearl Farm is their service. I like the food and ambiance. But I guess it’s a bit pricey for an average Juan (Filipino). Nevertheless, you get what you paid for and Pearl Farm will definitely worth a visit.

    I wonder it is called a Pearl Farm? I didn’t see any pearls with your shots.

      Hi Ruperto, Pearl Farm Island Resort used to be a pearl farm. Before, thousands of white-lipped oysters were brought in from the Sea of Sulu. These oysters were cultivated for their white, gold, and pink pearls.

      But today, it was move to a different location (I forgot where it is…) and only few pearl shells were left at the sea bed of the resort for viewing.
