FAMILY OUTING AT DUKA BAY RESORT






DUKA BAY RESORT is situated in the laid back town of Medina, Misamis Oriental.
A perfect place for honeymoon-ers, family outings, barkada getaways, birthday celebrations and most especially known as one of the TOP dive center in Mindanao.

Have fun with Duka bay resort's kayaks, aqua bikes, bancas, glass bottom boats, and banana boat rides. You may try snorkeling too in the 60 ft. japanese garden. One of the best sites i've snorkeled.
 beach volleyball or frisbee along the shore is also a good idea.


We visited this place weeks ago with my family together with the work-mates of my father. Its an annual getaway thing. Its a 6-7hours drive from Bukidnon. and 2-3hours drive from Cagayan De Oro City.

There were a lot of foods; humba, pancit canton, fried chicken, Puto, suman, lanzones, tuba et al,.
I enjoyed watching my nephews run around and play in the water. The oldies were just chit-chatting the whole time while the old mens went to the nearest city (Gingoog City) to buy foods to prepare for dinner. The young ones are busy either playing or picture taking.

The last time I went there was September of 2011. Nothing changed. Well, except for the "Duka Bay Resort" signage, it was yellow/blue then.


and for future Duka Bay Resorts guest I got you some informations for your  reference and some photos too. Scroll over to the bottom of this post for the rates. *wink

The villas






The cottages




 Beach house good for 12pax *forgot to take photos. I was too busy enjoying myself and the company of my siblings.*





 This was our place during our stay. 4 beach houses where we slept and a pavillion hut where we ate and had fun with the videoke.

Camiguin Island on the backdrop. ohwow! :)




Not a perfect place for sunsets but still, sunset was and always will be spectacular.



By night time..


Dinner was great! Tho the lechon arrived late around 10pm, most of them was asleep. My sibs and I and some of the oldies were the first to feast on the lechon. Lechon at its best for almost - midnight snack!

  11. Mukhang mabato yung beach based on the first photo. Or part lang iyon ng beach. Malayo sa Maynila ang beach kaya low propbability na makapunta. But I hope na makabisita dito one time. :-)
