We felt real hunger and we don't have packed foods so we asked our guide/driver where can we eat cheap meals. They brought us to a carenderia where they usually eat, just few meters outside Kaputian. Meals usually costs Php40-50.00. Chow time!

In far southern part of the Samal island lies another white beach known as Kaputian. Kaputian Beach is actually within the same stretch as the Pearl Farm Beach Resort (wish to visit this resort someday hehehe...). Kaputian Beach is of real fine white sand and clear blue waters, just that there are lot of scattered stones/pebbles around the beach. If only stones were cleaned up or put farther away (into the sea), the quality could really be comparable to other highly maintained resorts in Samal Island.
How will you know it's Kaputian Beach? When you see this sealion infront of you, you'll know you're there. It's genuine and is well-preserved when it died.
(Adults) Php 10-20.00 for daytour and less Php 100.00 for overnight
May rent tables, chairs. Public restroom available.
Cottages and rooms (communal cr) are also available.
Some people here bring their own tents too.
No corkage fees for foods and drinks.

How to reach Kaputian Beach?
As from the earliest part of my blog one can reach it via ferry in Sta. Ana Wharf near Magsaysay Park in Davao City. If you'll be coming from other way like from Babak or Penapalata District, no worries because the road to Kaputian is well-paved. While riding a motorbike I actually feel drowsy because of our smooth ride, of course I'm not the one driving it hehehe. There are lot of habal-habal/motorbikes outside this public beach too.
