Once upon a time, residents of Sitio Colagsing used to take small boats to get to the other side of town. Children ride bancas to reach school. With a newly developed road, they can now travel by land.

Colagsing has a hidden paradise of long beach strip with sands like fine powder.  At the end of the coastline, there is Colagsing Point, which has a small cave and a jutting rock the shape of  head with a face like that of The Grinch. They call it “Lungag Bato” (Cave Rock).

Excerpt from my article “Hidden Wonders of Sta. Maria”:

There’s a tempting getaway from stress and urban hub in a matter of two hours or ninety six kilometers south of Davao City.  All it takes is a bus or private vehicle for a smooth and scenic ride to a little municipality called Sta. Maria in Davao del Sur. How do you know that you’re there? After a panoramic vista of Malalag Bay over a cliff, you’ll see their municipal building built strategically in front of a hill, with a fountain in the foreground.  Read the rest of my story here

  1. As always the photos are excellent and the text is lovely. It’s too bad I live on the other side of the world, otherwise I would go see it in person. 🙂
