Exploring Pujada Island in Mati, Davao Oriental







Across the mainland of Barangay Tamisan in Mati Davao Oriental, we took a motorized banca going to Pujada Island. The island is across to the famous Pujada Bay where festival is celebrated every year. 

Heading to the island we saw a calm part of the ocean where you can see from the crystal clear water the rich and diverse coral formations with colorful school of fish swimming to different directions. No need to do some scuba to enjoy the beauty of the rainforest of the sea as it was like visiting the famous and artificial aquatic sanctuary,Manila Ocean Park. In this area  you are watching the colorful and free marine species and its beautiful habitat from  above of the open sea without glasses as barrier to your view.

Reaching the island, it was with glorifying happiness to witness a very quiet area with sand similar to white flour. Taking a dip into the blue crystal clear water is truly relaxing from the summer heat. 

Getting there

Coming from Butuan or Northern Mindanao
Take a Bachelor bus heading to Davao. Alight at Tagum Integrated Terminal Station. Take A bus bound to Mati . Bus fare is around Php500.  From Mati Bus Terminal hire a habal habal (motorcycle) to take you to Brgy. Tamisan. Look for someone who would rent their motorized banca and haggle with the price. For a complete island tour, the minimum is Php 1000.00

Coming from Davao City
From the Ecoland Bus Terminal Station , directly hop to Mati Bachelor bus. Bus leaves every hour bound to Mati. Fare is around Php 200.00
