Sigaboy Island is a small, sleepy town in Davao Oriental that boasts of underrated dive spots. A 30-hectare islet of lush tropical foliage with white sand beach, strong current and deep waters, ideal for fishing, coral, and shell hunting. It can be reached in 30 minutes by motorized boat or paddled boat. Located about 57 km. away from Mati.
This place known for being rich in natural resources. In fact, the island is known as the home of some endangered species, including eagles and plants like the ground orchid.
From the town proper, a famous pink beach is a 2.5-hour road trip away. From afar, the Cape of San Agustin looks like your typical white sand beach, but if you look closely, you’ll see the red powder from crushed corals creating a pinkish effect on the pristine sand.
When you go around it by boat, you will see different kinds of fish nestling in coral reefs under crystal clear waters. The place is also where the Mount Hamiguitan wildlife sanctuary is found. This place is home to endemic and rare species of flora and fauna. Another attraction here is the Cape of San Agustin.
