The Banana Plantation and Resort


Davao City has a lot of beautiful places that are breathtaking views and beaches. Also in our the tour, we visit the banana and coconut plantation, and the banana beach resort. The world's only beach resort with a banana and coconut plantation, and it is located in Tagum City, Davao Del Norte, Mindanao, Philippines. The banana plantation is owned by Hijo Resources Corporation. The largest Banana and Coconut Plantation in the Philippines, also it has a beach resort here.

The Banana Beach has popular water activities such as kayaking, banana boat riding, beach volleyball, water trampoline, Frisbee throwing, or simply building sand castles, also there's a Safari tour here. The touring cab provided by the Resort that includes a survey of the forest where monkeys, wild boars, snakes, monitor lizards and other birds roam freely, most of them are monkeys and wild boars. I think this is my 1st time to experience Safari Tour and it was so amazing! I really love the wildlife roaming around here freely.

Group pictures with the owner. All are smiling and enjoying it a lot.


Another Cultural Dance before having lunch with our brother and sister Muslims.




You can also go fishing and have lunch at these huts.


The Small Safari is one of the exciting tours. 


The "e-Walk", or the elevated walk, is the newest forest attraction in the Resort. But I did not go and try the e-walk because there's a shooting station here and I really missed shooting so I tried it.




The oldest Banana and Coconut Plantation in the Philippines.




 Hijo Resources Corporation also exporting bananas in Asia.



The best part of the tour is visiting a school - Ignacio Xavier Tuason Elementary School. We donated some school supplies to the children and I'm happy to see the faces of the children - priceless and innocent.

The Tuazon helped a lot this community. Aside from having a nice resort they also give back to the community.

  1. Wow! I haven't been to Davao but I'm keeping it on my list of places to visit. Here in Korea, we could buy bananas imported from the Philippines. I wonder if Hijo exports to here. Your tour is so much more than sightseeing, it is also cultural and charitable.

  6. What a great environment to learn more about the traditions in the Philippines and also enjoy the nature surrounding it. I have never been to a banana plantation before, especially to one incorporated in a wellness resort.

  12. Looks like a great place to visit! I have never been in banana plantation but it would be interesting to see what they do there. We saw several at Hawaii but we never went to visit them. Now I'm thinking that maybe we should have. Great to see those beautiful children getting so happy!

  13. I haven't been to Davao yet. On the other hand, I have a Chinese friend who worked before in a Banana Plantation in Davao and whenever we talked, he told me about it. Looks like you have a great visit in there. It seems to me very fulfilling because unlike other tourists, you did something that will help the community in there.

  15. The Banana plantation looks like a great experience. It's so neat to be able to immerse yourself into someone else's culture a bit. I would love to see the cultural dances. It's amazing that you got to give back a little as well to the elementary school.
