Banana Beach Resort

Banana Beach Resort is touted as the world's only beach resort within a banana plantation, and it is located in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, Mindanao, Philippines. The resort is nestled within a sprawling 760-hectare banana plantation owned by Hijo Resources Corporation. Its coastline beach spans 4.5 kilometers of a flat and even seabed, which provides guests with popular water activities such as kayaking, skimboarding, banana boat riding, beach volleyball, water trampoline, Frisbee throwing, or simply building sand castles.

Hailed as the most child-friendly resort in Tagum City, swimmers are always in the constant watchful eyes of the Resort's lifeguards who are strategically situated in the beach area. It also has a 60-hectare forest, a playground for children, and a "Spot" where guests can do fishing, and a trail for biking and horseback riding.

The Resort charges a nominal entrance fee for each guest which is fully consumable on food and drinks at the restaurant and bar, but exclusive of rentals for water activities, accommodation, and other amenities. Senior citizens get a 20 percent discount, and children under 12 years old are free of entrance but must be accompanied by adults.

There are two big day cottages which can accommodate up to 50 persons and seven smaller huts with a maximum capacity of 15 persons. There are also 10 tables which can seat six persons each.

How to get to Banana Beach Resort
The Resort is located at Barangay Madaum, about 15 minute drive from Tagum City, Davao del Norte, or an hour away from Davao City.
