Weekend Overnight Stay at Isla Reta Beach, Samal Island

Davao Information Site, Isla Reta

Isla Reta Beach Resort, Talikud Island, Samal

I have often heard raves about the beautiful Isla Reta Beach Resort located in Talikud Island, Island Garden City of Samal.  So when I feel like really relaxing for a very busy student life, me and my classmates in the graduate school decided to have a weekend getaway at the famous Isla Reta beach resort.

The boat ride going to Isla Reta from Sta. Ana Wharf in Davao City is only once in the morning and another one in the afternoon.  Our group decided to go to the place in the afternoon so that we still have time to prepare our food in the morning since we are planning to stay at Isla Reta for overnight.  The boat going to Isla Reta left at Sta. Ana wharf at around 3:00 in the afternoon.  It was about one hour ride going to Kaputian Wharf where our boat had a stopover and stayed there for 5 minutes.  After  that, our boat headed to Isla Reta which is just around 10-15 minutes from Kaputian Wharf.

If you are a nature-lover, you will really appreciate the place.  But if you are expecting very high-class amenities like that of 5-star hotels, the place does not offer such.  It does not offer air-conditioned rooms with wi-fi facility.

rules and regulations at Isla Reta

Follow the rules and regulations!

There is also a spot light directed to the beach for the people who go night swimming.   So for the night swimmers, you will really get to enjoy the place.  If you don’t bring foods with you, you may order at their restaurant.  They have foods with reasonable prices.

Isla Reta Signage

Isla Reta beach resort is a beautiful resort with blue pristine waters, a huge seashore with white sand (Don’t expect white powedery sand like Boracay).  It is sorrounded with many Talisay trees that give shade to the beach goers.   They have a number of open cottages, 5 closed and concrete cottages and a nipa cottage.

Tents are in place before night falls

Many of the people who stayed there overnight had their tents.  If you don’t have tent with you, you can rent at the place.  They also rent out pillows, mattresses for you to be comfortable.

    • Nice to hear that Rodilyn. Thanks 🙂

      • Hi There! mAg inquire lang po sana ako kung ano yung mga time for the trips papuntang Isla Reta? thanks

        • hi, di po ako masyado kabisado sa time nila. All I know when we went there is there’s one trip in the morning, 9 am and another one in the afternoon 3pm. thanks for visiting our site.

  2. magkanu po ba ang overnight entrance kasama na yong cottage ??

    • When we went there, entrance fee was I think 100 pesos for overnight stay. The fee for cottage was separate from the entrance fee. Prices of cottage depends on what type you will choose. The open cottage is only P500, the closed nipa cottage which I think can accomodate bigger number of guests is P700 while the concrete cottage ranges from P1000-1500. Thanks for visiting our site. Have fun on your Isla Reta escape!

  3. Hi, Fel magandang tanghali dyan tanong ko lang kung may palengke or market ba dyan sa isla reta. Magpaplano lang kami maganak na vacation dyan. Mag overstay kaso malaking pamilya kami magkano kaya ang corkages sa food. Salamat

    • Hi Leila, may maliit na palengke malapit sa Isla Reta. They don’t charge corkages sa mga food na pakunti-kunti lang, unless lechon cguro.

      Happy planning for your family vacay. Thanks for visiting our site!

  4. Pag gabi po ba mag punta anong means of transpo na po?

    • When we went there, scheduled and byahe papunta doon kasi medyo malayo ang Isla Reta. I don’t think there is still transpo in the evening going there. Thanks for visiting our site.

  5. Hello po 🙂 mag aask lang po sana ako if san yung santa ana wharf? Sa may magsaysay po ba yun? Dun po ba sasakay? How much po yung pamasahe and what time po yung byahe? Thank you 🙂

    • Yes, yung malapit sa Madsaysay Park ang Sta. Ana Wharf. Sorry, I can’t exactly recall how much is the pamasahe. When we went there, time going to Talicud is 9am and 3pm. Thanks for visiting our site. Happy escape!
