Malita is east of the Davao Gulf and a shared border of the north to the south Sulawesi Indonesian province.

The beautiful scenic beauty of Malita bay is a perfect choice for staying away from the busy street of the main cities and an opposite view of high towers and buildings.

A long ride of 3 to 6 hours from the Davao City bus terminal going to Malita and further to its last bus stop over the municipality of Don Marcelino.

The perfect spot for a beach day is just along the way from Malita to Don Marcelino road, and because the municipal is just beginning to rise, you can enjoy its affordable cost of living in all aspects.
