Duka bay, Medina, Misamis Oriental

Duka Bay Resort, Duka, Medina, Misamis Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines

IN THE LAID-BACK town of Medina is a tranquil, pleasant place called Duka Bay Resort. Occupying a sandy shore and part of a hill, Duka is soothingly shaded by a cluster of large ancestral trees. Seven villas — spacious, elegant, and fully furnished — provide a breathtaking view of the bay and the island of Camiguin.

A freshwater stream winds its way from behind the open-air restaurant, where one can savor an abundant variety of local and foreign cuisine. Using hook and line, visitors can experience the excitement of getting fish right from the stream. And for sports buffs, there are kayaks, bancas, water bikes, and gears for scuba diving.

Only a few meters from the shore is possibly the liveliest teeming coral community in Mindanao. Populated by colorful, tropical fish, and punctuated occasionally by a streak of turtles, the reef can be observed from Duka’s glass bottom boats, which have become popular vehicles of marine education and entertainment. An underwater spring (alibuag) and caves provide excitement to divers.

Along the western side of the bay, partially submerged, is a gathering of large rocks. Ejected years ago from the fiery crater of Mt. Hibok Hibok in Camiguin Island, the boulders now sit in quiet meditation with the waves, so much like visitors of Duka Bay Resort, who have found in the place a wellspring that refreshes the body and the spirit.

    Ako mismo taga Duka tinood barato pa sa una kay wa pan man to ma-improb. kanang mga gitarokan ron sa mga hotels diha kasagbutan pa na ba ug ang mga kabatuhan diha kay labhanan ug sag-ubanan pa na niadtong panahona. diha pud maayong lugar niadtong mga manlintihay. daghan kaayo makuha dihang mga kinhason, mangiwag mi dinha pag magabi-i. nahikurat na lang ko sa pagbisita nako kay mianindot na gyod. PASTILAN GYUD ka patsadaha. pero pasalamat gihapon ko sa mga nagbantay kay ila pud kong hatagan ug diskwento.ako masigarbuhon sa among lugar kay pang “WORLD-CLASS” kini. panawagan lang nako sa mga nag poultry diha sa Duka ayaw intawon mo pag hinugaw ba. didto mo mag tukod sa ibabaw nga layo sa duka. maghimo mo’g “safety-tank”
