SECDEA BEACH RESORT: Comfort and Leisure at its Best

The Island Garden City of Samal has always been Southern Mindanao’s premier beach and island destination. It is dotted not only with pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear waters but with eco-adventure destinations one should not miss when visiting the island.

The Charm of Island Living

Considered by some as the largest resort city in the country, Samal Island is home to finest beach resorts in the region. Every year new beach resorts even highland and inland resorts are being constructed to cater more visitors flocking the island. The newest addition is the SECDEA Beach Resort.

One of the most recommended things to do while in SECDEA is the Mangrove Walk. It features wooden and concrete bridges perfect to stroll around the mangrove mini-forest. Inside the area is a mangrove nursery where Patapat and Bakhaw are grown.

Another feature of this first class resort is the huge Lagoon and Fish Pond perfectly built near the main entrance. It serves as a charming welcoming sight upon entering the vicinity of the resort. Here, fishing is allowed where one can catch Tilapia and Bangus – and yes, you can have them cooked fresh for you.

SECDEA’s infinity pool by the restaurant is a charmer. It offers a magnificent panoramic view of the Davao Gulf and the two famous Liguid Islands – a very therapeutic and relaxing sight to behold. In addition to that are the enticing colors of the white shoreline, the azure skies and the blue seawaters that perfectly blend to define a perfect tropical haven.

There are so many things one can do here at SECDEA. You can sweat out and climb up the 124-steps stairway that will lead you to the hill overlooking the view of Davao Gulf and the entire Resort. Trust me, the view from the top is just breathtaking.

You can also roam around the entire property by riding or driving a golf cart. Vehicles are not allowed inside the main resort but spacious parking area are located just beside the main entrance. Golf carting around SECDEA is an amazing experience. But wait, they too have bicycles, you can borrow from them and go wander around the property.

Golf carting is fun in SECDEA.

And biking too!

What about the food? They serve oh-so-delectable dishes that will make you feel like you’re in the comfort of your home. I’m highly recommending their own version of Bagnet Pinakbet and Adobo. Get yourself a refreshing Guyabano shake too – just perfect for a sunny beach day.

This is lip-smacking – SECDEA’s own version of BAGNET PINAKBET.

Mangrove walk is my personal favorite here in SECDEA.

Never leave SECDEA without dropping by the resort's CHAPEL. Better yet say a prayer.
