Mati City, Davao Oriental,Mindanao,PhilippinesThis is a featured page

Mati City is located on the eastern part of the island of Mindanao. It is one hundred sixty-five(165) kilometers away from Davao City,a one and a half hours drive from Tagum City. Visitors can travel from Davao City through the Madaum diversion road, which is shorter than taking the Davao-Tagum highway. Travels by air and sea are possible,with the existence of an airport and seaport. Mati boasts of being the coconut capital of Mindanao if not the whole country. A large portion of its fertile land is planted to coconuts,and a significant number of its population is largely dependent on it. Other agricultural crops such as mango,banana, corn,coffee and cacao are also being cultivated, as well as the famous Menzi pomelo and Valencia oranges. Mati has a long stretch of shoreline and one can find beaches of pure,powder-like white sand. A number of resorts has been developed and are now open to serve both local and international tourists. Some of these resorts are situated along the coast of Pujada bay and the pacific ocean. Along the western coast of the bay lies Mt.Hamiguitan,the home of the pygmy forest,where bonsai plants and trees grow,some of which are believed to be hundred years old or more. On its peak is a lake, called "tinagong dagat",or hidden sea,so covered by dense vegetation a climber has to hike trails for hours to be able to reach it. The mountain is also host to rare species of flora and fauna,thus becoming a wildlife sanctuary to these life forms.
