Davao has boomed into a city that merges leisure and trade. Just a few kilometers away from this busy metropolis are tourist spots that tell the story of the Crown Jewel of Mindanao. Choosing to live in Davao City is saying yes to the dazzling urban life and the sights and stories that define it.
The Best of Both Worlds: Work and Play, All Day at Verdon Parc
Verdon Parc is a short distance from the iconic landmarks of the city. Ateneo de Davao is 1 kilometer away, while the Philippine Women’s College of Davao is only a mere 600 meters away. The close proximity of the property to hospitals and shopping malls makes Verdon Parc a top choice for residents who value accessibility and convenience.
Beyond the strategic location that works well with city living, the Verdon Parc at Ecoland Drive, Davao is also a traveler’s dream property. Whether for spur-of-the-moment trips or a meticulously planned getaway with family and friends, living in Verdon Parc brings adventure right to your doorstep.
Through the VacationPass™ from DMCI Homes, buyers can get the opportunity to explore Davao while staying at one of its leisure properties – Verdon Parc.
Here are some of the best tourist spots to visit in Davao.
Museo Dabawenyo – 700 meters away
Insightful galleries fill this 1-story museum made to help people know about the people of Davao and Mindanao a little better.
From walls bursting with colors, artifacts that take you back to time, and photographs showing different time periods of the island, you will get to know the life and history of the city.
Here, you can explore the intricate patchwork of Davao’s religion and ethnicity, tribal groups, and the icons of Mindanao as a whole.
Eden Nature Park – 27 kilometers away
Resting on the foot of Mt. Tolomo is one of the nature resorts in Davao City – the Eden Nature Park. The once denuded area is now home to sprawling trees, hiking trails within a lush forest, a playground and a sports area, sky rider, sky cycle, and fishing activities.
The place is riddled with beautiful nipa cottages. The vast greenery and a location devoid of the city bustle offer a perfect place for a quick relaxation break for people from the metro.
Malagos Chocolate Museum – 31.1 kilometers away
This 5-year-old chocolate museum is the first in the Philippines. The place is built to feature the products and the story of the local cacao and chocolate industry in Davao.
Malagos Chocolate Museum is more than just a place where you can enjoy treats. This museum is divided into four zones. First, there’s the museum section which will give you a deeper understanding of cacao and chocolate-making through photos and videos.
There’s also the chocolate bar where you can indulge in yummy chocolate goodies and drinks. The favorite of most guests is the Chocolate Laboratory, where you get the chance to make your own version of chocolate.
Philippine Eagle Foundation – 31.9 kilometers away
The Philippine eagle remains to be a symbol of pride not only for its home island, Davao but also for the Filipinos. In this rehabilitation hub home to the mighty eagle, visitors will witness the birds’ life up close. You will see how they live, and how they are taken care of, along with other birds.
Apart from the aviary, this place also welcomes you into a relaxing, lush location where different faunas and floras unique to the province grace the grounds.
If sustaining a liveable habitat for this iconic bird is part of your advocacy, you can make a donation to the Philippine Eagle Foundation. You can also join their Adopt-a-PEC-Animal program which is geared to provide financial support for the veterinary and keeper care, maintenance, and food needs of the birds.
Davao Coastal – 10.3 kilometers away
Exercise, bike, or simply stroll along a road beside the sea. Davao coastal road is a 7.6-kilometer stretch of safe cobbled roads where you can work out, hang out with friends, take a walk, or see the coastline. As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Davao City, the coastline is a great place to meet and mingle with locals.
Along this coastal road is Times Beach – an attraction close to the local’s hearts that will reopen in August this year. Only a 5-minute drive from Verdon Parc, this favorite hang-out spot will once again offer a refreshing place for picnics, bird-watching, leisure walks, and for working out.
Samal Island – 2 kilometers from Davao city, via ferry
The paradise in Samal Island boasts up to 30 resorts for all price points. It’s an accessible getaway location for anyone wanting to take a swift break from the city.
Samal is abundant in marine life – the corals and the variety of fishes are vibrant here. The white sand beaches are plenty, and the landscape and seascape are made more special by the jaw-dropping rock formations. Pearl lovers will find this as a new haven – the famous pearl farms of Davao are on this island.
Activities such as freediving, snorkeling, and island hopping are popular here.
