Babusanta Beach Resort
One of the tropical paradises aside from Dayang Beach Resort is the Babu Santa Beach Resort in Talicud Island.  It was named after a woman (Babu) who was as merry as Santa Claus but the ambiance of the place is contradictory from the term “merry”.

The resort is extremely perfect for individuals who want to feel the quintessence of nature. Babu Santa preserved the exquisiteness of the scenery by not altering the place to a modernized resort. The rooms and cottages were designed minimally. The surrounding are all natural, no landscape but you’ll have clean beach, fine white sand and wide vicinity for outdoor fun.

If you want to experience the harmony of the place, catch any of these 5 boats (Pacific Boat, Jessa Boat, Shirly Boat, Gracee Boat, and Hof Gorei Boat) from Sta. Ana wharf Davao City from 10am to 3pm going to Talicud Island for a convenient trip. But if you want adventure, you may take barge from Sasa Davao City to Samal, disembark from the barge will be short drive from Penaplata warehouse to Kaputian, then a boat ride going to Talicud for P10.00 only, and finally, a few minute motorcycle ride from Talicud proper going to Babu Santa Beach Resort will be an added fun to your journey.

Upon reaching the place, you may encounter some problems like limited electricity and water. Best advice to bring sufficient amount of potable water, a fully charge/spare battery for your gadgets, a lamp if you’re planning to stay overnight (or have fun and make a bonfire).  For those who want to bring kids, their safety should be the guardian’s priority. Don’t leave your kids unattended there is no available lifeguard at the area.

i realy hate this beach....



a killer beach...

its seems like many of person/people who visit this beach died..

i encounter that,
namatay ang pinsan koh ng dahil din naman sa dagat na yan...

my 9 year old cousin,died on January 9 2010 in that beach....

masakit isipin ng dnaman namin pinabayaan ang pinsan koh bat bigla nalang siya nawala...
sabi pa nila january 7 pala may namatay din don,doon din kung saan nalunod pinsan koh...january 10,11,12 meron din daw nalunod diba sunod-sunod din...

dapat pala sinabihan nila kami na may namatay don bago kami na ligo....

masakit talaga..

please inform everyone careful if pumunta doon...

para din akong tinakluban ng lupa at langit,ng dahil don..

di kasalanan ng babusanta bakit namatay ang pinsan nyo, kundi kayo, kayo ang nagpabaya...wag nu namn sisihin sa resort ang pagkakamali at katangahan nyo... kahit sang dagat talga delikado sa mga TANGA AT PABAYA Na tulad nyo... cguro nga nagkataon lang malalim na parte kung saan nalunod ang pinsan nyo kaya ganyan kayo manira sa beach resort, PANO NAMAN KAYA KUNG NALUNOD ANG PINSAN MO SA MABABAW LANG NA BAHAGI, GANUN PA KAYA KAYO MAGREACT??? BAKA MANAHIMIK NA LANG KAYO DAHIL SUPER HAYAG NA TALAGA KATANGAHAN NYO...

babu is a nice place, we went diving as deep as 70ft. it an adventure. they dont have a lifeguard that's why they're cheaper than any other resorts. for those who know how to swim - this is a great place for swimming

Unfortunately, Babu santa has no licensed to operate their resort. The amenities are bad. No electricity, No water. The place is not safe. And the ambiance is poor! Trust me because I was there. This blog is not to disappoint the readers but to give you an idea how the place looks like so that you can choose other resort in Talicud, Samal. If I were you, who is planning right now to come down at Babu Santa, you better change your mind so that you'll never regret at the end.

i visited too Babusanta- I like the sand...soooo fine and white. You can't expect talaga lots of amenities kasi libre naman entrance. You're free and roam the area wherever you go. I just never thought na may mga bad memories na pla na nangyayari sa place na yan.

For me, Babusanta is a nice beach to visit. Well I visited that place 3 times already. It's not crowded unlike other beaches, and it's really far from the city. It's true that there's no electricity there, so I suggest you just bring your flashlights or emergency lamps. The water is really nice. The waves are not actually always big. The water is clear. We tried swimming there at night and we saw a lot of planktons, which was a great experience because they glow at night. Sometimes you'll see fishes jumping out of the water. The caretaker is very accommodating. They only have open cottages there. So if you are an adventurous type of person who just wants to chill away from the city, then this is one great place for you to visit. But if you're "maarte" then don't even bother staying overnight in Babusanta.

@jezzafaith mugas

Namatay ang pinsan mo dahil sa kapabayaan ninyo. 9 year old hinayaan nyo maligo sa dagat mag isa? Kahit saang beach pa yan kung hindi ninyo titingnan ng mabuti ang mga bata siguradong may masamang mangyayari sa kanila.

nagpunta kami dito ng mga classmates ko nung may 19, 2010. we didn't know dami na palang namatay dito. may electricity na sila coz may generator na. hindi talaga safe dito kasi ilang meters ay malalim na kaagad. ung tinatawag nilang "kantil" sa visaya? i don't know anu yan sa tagalog. but, we had fun and we planned to go there for the second time but i'm in doubt na ngayon dhil nga sa nabasa ko dito.. tsk tsk tsk... babu santa is a lovely place pero may tinatago palang kapangitan. tsk tsk tsk maganda kasi mxado ang dagat dun.

I want to go there soon. Neglegence lang yan sa mga tao kung bakit namamatay mga pinsan o kasamahan nyo sa isang lugar kasi hindi nyo inaalagaan. Dont destroy the image of the resort kasi maganda daw dun.

sure babu santa is a nice beach...beautiful indeed..solemn, refreshing, white sand beach...sad but true, some of the comments here are most likely to true that could destroy the resorts' image..i have a friend who died a month after we went there. his feet were feeling numb and felt he could not walk that saturday night. we didnt know that there's no boat in a sunday morning, so went looking for motorcycle (habal-habal) that could send us to isla reta to rent ferry. it was a long agony for my friend who could hardly walked that day, helpless us to find vehicle that could ferry us back in davao city..now, for emergency reasons that could come across your day/night in that resort, think twice..or, dont go there if you need to come rushing back to where you belong, coz ferries there are not usually available when you need them..

uy, kagagaling lang namin dito with some of my batchmates last may 21, 2012. actually, sa dayang kami, since magkatabi lng yung resort nila, umeskapo kmi sa babusanta. okay nman ung place. mas mganda ung beach don kesa sa dayang. crystal clear tlga ung dagat.. mejo creepy nga lng kasi masyadong tahimik. pero okay tlga siya. mag-iingat lng tlga kasi may part dun sa dagat na bigla nlng lumalalim..

Babu santa is heaven especially if you're ready for nature tripping.it preserves the old life.no electricity,mea ns you will enjoy the nature's way.bonfire is the best way to warm the nights.just the moon,stars and cozy feeling far away from the noise of the city.thumbs up.

kung wala kayong pera kaya kayo nag settle sa beach nato wala kayong karapatan mag reklamo or manira about the beach. if you want a safer and a better place or if gusto nyo may kuryente or better yet maganada facilities edi mag pearl farm kayo.. duhhh.. negligence should not only be tagged to the management itself but also to those of the victims company. why would the hell would you let a 9 year old child swim if you know that the water is not shallow right?? logic lang...
