We may have thought that Covid-19 has caused the extinction of travelling but we are wrong. It has not ended the world of travelling thus it has prepared us to be more careful and more keen for safety in our travels. There are a lot of protocols that need to be followed but if you have your personal car and QR code, then you are ready to take your mind to peace in Davao Region’s unspoiled white beaches.
After long months of being held up inside our homes, many people are on the go to have that dip in salty waters, snap a picture of perfect white sand and rest under the energizing sun. People are now more prepared to venture the outside world – especially the white beaches – with less worries.
So if you are one of a white sand memory hoarder then these unspoiled white beaches are perfect for you:
