The Island Garden of Samal or simply Samal Island is a small paradise, just roughly 10 minutes away from Sasa Wharf in Davao city. Despite the security issues that faces Samal Island (there are numerous hostage incidents by rebels in the area), we took the risk of exploring it. This is the final part of our #BudgetTrip goes to Mindanao. Hope you enjoy it!

A few hundred meters from shore in Brgy Acedor in Samal island (officially known as the Island Garden City of Samal) is a one of a kind marine sanctuary. A 14-ha area around a shallow reef near the famous Pearl Farm resort was seeded with giant clams (genus Tridacna) some years back and now its home to a few thousand mature giant clams (at least 3000 according to the caretakers).
Samal island is a favorite destination because of its proximity to Davao City (less than 30 minutes to some parts of the island). I've been there quite a number of times before (see related posts on Samal island) b ...
