Baganga Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines

Nature’s jewels are beneath the unknown towns. Baganga in Davao Oriental rings the bell for its untouched beach resorts and mesmerizing forests that are slowly discovered because many travelers have been spreading their amazing experiences visiting town.

If you are a sea adventure chaser, your whole day can be spent hopping from one island beach to the other. You can wear your surfing gear or plain swimwear as you ride the boat and enjoy the waves hopping from the Mahoc Beach to Kinablangan Hotspring, then San Victor Island. As Baganga is known for natural tourist attractions, your adventure continues with more waterfall experiences at Nawasa Falls, Rubilinda Falls and Campawan Curtain Falls. You might want to grab some barbecue lunch at the Carolina Lake while enjoying the site.

It would also be a unique experience to explore the Saoquegue Caves and Beach. You have the option to go swimming there, just right before you proceed to spot the Upper Baganga River in your next stop. The mangroves of Baganga are also a must-see. The town is rich in them. There are still more water resources to take sight: the Languyon Strait and Baculin Bay.

For you to experience a closer view of the sunrise, you need to start your day as early as 4 a.m. Travel up to the Pusa Point located at the easternmost part of the Philippines so that you can shout to the whole world that you have been to the “Site of the First Sunlight of the New Millennium”. You should be proud to get hold of such adventure.

To sustain the entire day of being under the sun, don’t miss to bring mineral water or coffee if you’re up so early. You can also pack some food for lunch and dinner. You can be so enticed to savor the pristine greatness of bonsai forest atop Mt. Hamiguitan. It’s a rarity in the country, so getting there should be an amazing part of your itinerary. Along the way, you’ll notice people traveling via jeepneys, L300 vans and buses. It’s fascinating to see them rushing their way to take a ride.

If you’re planning a visit for a real sunrise viewing experience, the travel experts suggest that you attune it within the month of October. It’s best when you’re able to see the colorful parade and dancing in their so-called Balyan Festival. Get ready to jive along with the beat!
