At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.” – Unknown

“The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.” – Isak Dinesen




Dakak Park and Beach Resort is located in Brgy. Taguilon, Dapitan City, 30 minutes away from Talisay which Rizal stayed during his exile.

We were picked up (Dakak’s van service) around 1300H-1330H and it took an hour ride to reach Dakak. We check-in (Barkadahan Package) around 1445H (The receptionist was very pleasant and accommodating).

The rooms were elegant, simple and neat (well maintained). The bathroom was also huge! It was worth the price!


we headed to the beach and enjoyed the rest of the day O_o


We had our dinner at the Pavillion (Buffet – P395.00) around 1900H. A cultural show started around 1930H and ended at 2100H.

Part of the Barkadahan Package are free tickets to Gloria De Dapitan (entrance and 1 free pass for each ride). This was used after dinner and a free van service was provided to and from Dakak.

Thanks to Cebu Pacific’s seat sale (October 2010), I was able to book 7 persons for less than P200 per pax, destination – Dipolog!

Some of you might be thinking now, where is this place and what can we see in Dipolog? With a little research, we found out that Dipolog is a gateway to Dapitan and Dakak!

We were scheduled to meet up at the airport at least 2 hours before the flight which was 1040H. After check-in, It was announce that our flight will be delayed (It was moved to 1330H).

Cebu Pacific provided us lunch to compensate the wait. O_o

We arrived around 1430-1500. Beforehand, I arranged with Monina Pension House (maribel – 09196144295) to pick us up using their van (for only P500/group).

Rizaliana Building

This building was constructed in 1972 and  houses Rizal’s relics. It is also the office of the Rizal Park Curator.

After arriving @ Monina, we proceeded to Rizal’s residence located at the shores of Talisay (which he stayed for 4 years).  We hired a trike (P7 per pax) to bring us there. A local guide gave us a tour (Rizal in Dapitan 101). She was very hospitable and friendly.

After the tour,  we arrived at Inato Lang Restaurant Dapitan Aquamarine Park around 1630H (we learnt from our service earlier that we can charter a boat that will take us to Aliguay Island in Dampa). The employee introduced as to Jade. We were able to negotiate a service going to Aliguay Island. Jade by the way works with Gloria De Dapitan.

we decided to have our dinner at Inato Lang Restaurant Dapitan Aquamarine Park as well.

The food was very delicious, ***** stars!

After  dinner, we head back to Monina to momentarily rest.

We ended the night by having a few drinks in one of the local bars at Gloria De Dapitan
