Our trip to Baganga, which is known as the first class municipality of Davao Oriental Province and is located in the easternmost province in the country, has been amazing. After the Balite hot spring and the Campawan falls, our next destination is Baganga’s beautiful Sunrise Boulevard.
Probably around 30-45 mins from Campawan falls, we passed by the coastal road of Baganga, Davao Oriental, and we saw a park where whitewashed mangroves stand starkly against the sea and the sky. This place is called Baganga Sunrise Boulevard, located in Brgy. Dapnan, Baganga, Davao Oriental.
Before the Typhoon hit in the Philippines back in December 2012, this wonderful place is funded by the Provincial Government in support of its eco-tourism development. Sunrise Boulevard was filled with mangrove trees and such a relaxing place that is perfect for sunrise viewing.
Because of the typhoon Pablo, this amazing place has been damaged by it. But when we visited, surprisingly it is still so beautiful. These mangrove trees remind us on how they staunchly defended Baganga’s shore from the surge of the Typhoon “Pablo”.
The Sunrise Boulevard:
Sunrise Boulevard, as the name suggests, is best viewed when the dawn breaks. We went there at high noon but nonetheless the place is really wonderful. I guess if we get the chance to view the sunrise from there, it would be an amazing experience.
Some of the trees are showing signs of life with the green leaves sprouting from their branches. Most of all, you can see a lot of sea creatures hanging out at the roots of the trees.
We can’t help but take pictures of these dramatic trees. It felt like I’m in an enchanted forest. Hehe 😉 We enjoyed the chirping of the birds. It’s fun to watch people walking their dogs and some people just chilling on the side.
Another great thing about this park is it’s free, “no entrance fee”. They also have amenities such as restaurants, playground, and beach huts (which I think you should rent).
Therefore, if you happen to visit Baganga, make sure to drop by at Sunrise Boulevard. And if you already had, leave a comment on your experience. I’d love to read your story. 🙂
