Accessible by boat or by car from the town center, Nambalan beach has a small cove with a short stretch of fine golden-white sand and jagged black rock formations that can serve as a great dramatic backdrop for your next #travelgram. The beach also has a grassy area shaded by coconut trees, making it a great stop for a midday picnic. Camping is also allowed on the beach, so those who are so inclined can enjoy a peaceful night sleeping under a sky filled with endless stars.
The jump off point for Dasol's more famous tourist attractions, Tambobong Beach is a beauty in itself, with a stretch of fine white sand and a front row view of the stunning sunrise. Waters here are typically calm and shallow, so swimmers and non-swimmers alike can enjoy. Marine life is plentiful in Tambobong as well, making it a great spot for snorkeling. Those who are so inclined might even like to befriend the local fishermen and hop on board with them as they set out for sea at sunset and return just at the crack of dawn.
There are no actual crocodiles on Dasol's Crocodile Island, so tourists need not worry. Instead, this beautiful island has a shell-strewn beach and shallow tidal pools where different tiny sea creatures can be found. Frequented by tourists as a spot for eating and sunbathing, the rocky seabed isn't exactly swim-friendly, especially when the tide is low. But for the water babies who crave a dip, there is a small but scenic cave that opens out into the sea. Waters here are deep, so it's best for strong swimmers or floaters, but even those who don't dive in can make the most of the cave's picture-perfection.
