Excellent Diving sites. Promising tourist attractions. Commendable palm-lined beaches. These are what Talikud Island can offer to its visitors. Talikud Island is located in the South-West area of the Samal Island. It is about 1 hour away from the Sta. Ana wharf, Davao City and you can reach this Island via a boat. 

You can do a lot of things at Talikud Island. If you are planning for wild adventure and ultimate beach experience, this is a perfect choice for you especially if you are here in Davao.

Here are the things that you can do at Talikud Island:

  1. SCUBA Diving
With the help of SCUBA diving guides, you can learn the basics of SCUBA diving. You need to know first the do’s and dont’s before you can go deep down the sea.


For the first timers, it could be a little bit difficult to dive, but just think of what you can see underwater and the tense will just go away.


Once you are in synch with the water, the excitement starts.

Aside from the blue and clean sea water, diving at Talikud Island is a must experience. If you want to see the underwater world of Talikud Island, you can visit this link for my diving experience:

2. Snorkelling

For those who can’t dive, you can just snorkel around.

With the help of snorkelling equipment, you can just view the coral and the fishes from sea surface.

 3. Swimming

Who can say no to waves and blue water? Of course you can’t just stay there and stare the sea under the heat of the sun. You can go and swim. Just don’t forget to put on some lotion to avoid sun burn.

 4. Island Hopping

We went to three different parts of the Island. With the help of this boat, we have explored different excellent diving spots in Talikud Island.

First stop: Angel’s cove

Angel’s cove has healthy coral reefs and I can say this is a commendable diving spot. 

The water is very clear that you can just snorkel to see the underwater living species.

Second Stop: Babu Santa

Clean and reserved Island. This is where we stayed for lunch. Despite the fact that the island is a little bit crowded, cleanliness is their first priority here.

Third Stop: The west part of Angel’s Cove

For our third and final stop, we went to this part of the angel’s cove. This area is deeper than the other islands we visited. And if it is deeper, you can even see more unique sea creatures and an ultimate island hopping experience.

 5.Pig Outing

What is Island hopping and diving without foods?

Imagine you are at the beach and you have delectable food in front of you. I may say it’s an awesome pig out moment.

Next time you visit Davao City, experience the hotness of Talikud Island, and I swear you will never regret it.
