The Udalo Beach Experience

Sitio Udalo is situated northeast portion of the Municipality of Malita, Davao del Sur. Because my group is tired of all the beach views in Mindanao, I decided to take a breather of the week-long office jungle in the place. Alas, I never thought Udalo had become an instant destination. With me was Mics who took a day tour on Saturday, May 16 along with the Tribal Filipino Apostolate. It was a good trip, indeed, as we were welcomed by the smiling rays of sunlight, white sands, incredible islands, exciting boat trips, cool wind and other amazing ranges of vision.

Side trips: Island hopping, tour around fish cages.....eating.
