Destination #3 of Day 1 of Soccsksargen Experience Tour Part Deux (SEX Tour II)
After the whitewater tubing in Maitum, our next destination for Soccsksargen Tour (also known as SEX Tour) was Kiamba Children’s Park, which is free entrance.
We enjoyed our lunch at an elevated place overlooking the beach and the other portion of Kiamba; this place is good to hang out with family and friends. The park has several flowers, some landscapes and mini zoo – where you can spend time getting acquainted with birds, snakes, turtles and a lot more.
Of course, visiting Kiamba Children’s Park gets more interesting when accompanied by a trip to Tuka Sanctuary.
Tuka Marine Sanctuary Park
It is a good thing I joined the said SEX Tour, and I found that, aside from Quezon Beach somewhere in Julu, Sulu, Tuka Sanctuary, it is one of the best undeveloped-white-sand-beaches. It comes with a crystal clear water even on the seashore.
The four-coves could be a great picnic destination if you want to relax between white-sand-sea and lush mountains.
This place is also a haven of different species of fish and rich in marine life. You will really enjoy diving in deep areas, but I was too chicken to even think of drowning. I don’t know how to swim. 🙁
But one thing is for sure; water sports enthusiasts could enjoy a wide range of activities on their one-day stay.
Unfortunately, according to one of our guides, multitudes of corrals (which are the main attractions of the beach) are being attacked by the crown of thorns, a lot on coral reefs were left damaged. To help save Tuka Sanctuary, you can coordinate with Michelle Solon and Kiamba Tourism Council.
How to Get There
Reaching Kiamba from General Santos City is easy through vans or motorcycles as the primary form of transportation, while the Tuka Sanctuary is accessible via the motorboat.
