TsadaMindaNOW: Dakak Park and Beach Resort

It’s March 1 and the summer heat is on! And in the tropics, summer means… beach!

Project Dakak1

TsadaGyudMindaNOW’s first destination is the pride of Dapitan… Dakak Park and Beach Resort. Located in Barangay Taguilon, Dapitan City, Zamboanga del Norte, Dakak boasts a great stretch of white sand, a perfect venue for summer outdoor activities like beach volleyball and frisbee.


Dakak’s best asset is its comforting and serene turquoise water. The water is so calm that it even looks like a lake.

This five star resort has cottages that are fully-furnished. They also have bungalows, deluxe rooms, executive rooms, prime deluxe rooms, beachfront rooms in native duplex type bungalows with capiz shell window panes; and family pavilions, and presidential suite.


After a day on the beach, take a stroll around the park. They have man made waterfalls and the entire place is wrapped with lush greens. And do not let the day pass without seeing the breathtaking sunset.

At night, enjoy the festivals of the world through their European and Asian inspired cafes and restaurants. If you just want to chill around, try their sea side bar with wide selection of food and drinks.

Lastly, the perfect way to end the day is to have a relaxing massage at their spa or treat yourself at their jacuzzi. They also have swimming pools if you want to have one last splash before bed time.

Their world class amenities and services made them one of the most awarded resorts in the country. Dakak got the Kalakbay Award for Resort on 1989 from the Philippine Department of Tourism; 16th International Award for Tourist, Hotel and Catering Industry on 1991 from the Trade Leader?s Club and Editorial Office Madrid, Spain; a certificate of excellence by the Prestigious Resorts of the World on 1992; and has participated in the Dream Incentive Contest theme for the Philippines that has won the “Best Showcase 1997” in the Incentive Travel and Conventions, Meetings Asia (IT&CMA) in 1997.

Guess what? Dakak was among the chosen few destinations visited by the candidates of Miss Universe in 1994.
