Big Waves of Dahican Beach, Mati Davao Oriental
Hello Mindanao bias!
Isn't the picture above fun? One of my friends took that last weekend when we were in Dahican Beach in Mati, Davao Oriental. Oriental.
In that picture, we're running, jumping and battling against giant waves of Dahican Beach. Moments of struggles as we fondly called it. However, we really enjoyed every struggle, even some of my friends were knocked down not just once but twice. hahahha. This experience was truly unique.
This beach is one of the popular destinations in Mati City; it has 17 kilometers of pure, fine and white-sand shore. Since this place is facing the Pacific Ocean, it is rich in big waves perfect for skim-boarding and surfing. Dahican Beach is another version of Siargao - The Surfing Capital of the Philippines. Some of the locals and even tourists come here bringing their skim and surf boards to practice. In fact, this is the favorite place by the locals for tournaments in the region.
