“Little Boracay”

Hidden from most people because of challenges in accessibility, this fishing village in Sitio Colagsing, Barangay Tanglad in Sta. Maria, Davao Occidental is now getting the moniker of “Little Boracay” because of its white sand beach and clear blue waters. Access is via a 30-minute pumpboat ride from Malalag, Davao del Sur or via dirt road from the Sta. Maria in the same province. Overnight accommodation is available from 700 to 1,800 pesos.
