Kalinawan Resort in Samal Island

Rock Climbing at Kalinawan Resort in Samal

Kalinawan Resort is a widely popular haven for lovers of extreme outdoor sports adventure. Its 80-foot high and 100-foot wide natural limestone rock wall cliff formation perched by the sea is enough to lure any rock climbing enthusiast, beginners or professionals alike, to brave the challenge of strength, endurance and physical stamina that surely await them. It is situated on the east side of the beautiful island of Samal, opposite Maco and Pantucan in Compostella Valley, and Banaybanay and Lupon in Davao Oriental overlooking Mount Diwalwal just across the Gulf of Davao. Kalinawan was named for its crystal clear, and calm waters in the area.

The Resort provides full-packed adventure activities from ziplining, to rappelling, and trekking, as well as mountain biking and 4x4 off-road pursuits. And because of the rich marine life and live corals in the gulf area, Kalinawan is home to one of the best diving and snorkeling spots around Samal Island. Its calm waters makes it ideal for kayaking as well.

This two-hectare resort was beautifully designed to blend with the rough and uneven contours of the land to keep the place as natural as possible.
