DAVAO CITY: Seagull Beach Resort

Surprisingly, a white-sand beach along a gray to black sand shoreline! That’s Seagull Beach Resort in Davao City, a few minutes drive from downtown-Davao just at the back of SM. Some friends have been referring several beaches just within the city but because I know it be grey/black sand, there is hesitation plus the fact that it’s in the city, it may lack personal preference for serenity and peace, until I got the chance to do a quick photo shoot some two-weeks ago.

Breathtaking view of Seagull Beach Resort Davao!

Due to time constraints, a city beach was the best choice and I was led to Seagull. Paid the entrance fee [P100, I think], rented an “umbrella shade” for Php 200 for our things [instead of a cottage]. Upon entry, I noticed some kids along the shore making sand castles in white sand! Yes, it is white sand! We walked further because we wanted the farthest place for our photo shoot and it’s really white sand! Even along the shore and into the water, it is white sand!

I wondered for a while until the coconut trees provided the answer! Big thanks coconut trees! The next question was, how much load of white sand was dumped to cover-up the original grey/black sand, extending to the shore and into the water!

The resort is quite huge with function halls, lots of cottages and even chapel to accommodate wedding ceremonies. Covering the original sand up to two-meters high must have been true hard labor. Hard labor both for Seagull and wherever they got the white sand from; both for the men/women who worked and for mother nature especially where the the white sand came from.

The cocotree that spilled the beans!

Whatever it is, the place is neat and complete. Water is clear with slides that drop into the sea waters – a definite attraction for kids. You may bring your own food/drinks or eat in their restaurant. Cooking grills are likewise provided. I was there on a Saturday and it was not crowded. I cannot say that, though, for other days or for other Saturdays. Having stayed there from 9AM to 1PM, I can say that I can stay overnight. For a mid-end resort in the city, Seagull gets a passing mark. I could have enjoyed the place more were it not for the loud songs played in random over the public adress system. I just simply cannot take it! Playing songs is fine, not just too loud because not everyone likes it. Get it? :)

To close, Seagull was once voted one of the top-5 beaches in Davao. Interestingly, there’s a low-end resort beside Seagull and locals call is “Seagullid” [translation: "gilid" ng Seagull].
