We have been cooped up in our homes for over a year now, and Davaoeños have gone a little crazy with wanderlust and the desire to explore new places. The restlessness is rising, but there is still the need for social distancing. For now, the only places we can safely enjoy fun times with our family are establishments with fresh air, good food, and open space.
Luckily, you don’t need to book a plane ticket to experience the great outdoors. In fact, you don’t even need to drive too far from the city at all.
These getaway options are only a short trip away:

This restaurant feels like you’re dining in your own secret garden that’s charming and refreshing in the mornings and afternoon. At night, it transforms into a magical place under a canopy of stars.
They serve well-loved dishes such as beef pot roast and whole fried chicken, and comfort food such as pasta, cheesecake and burgers as well.
You won’t believe that this beautiful, secluded garden is located so close to the city. Situated in Cabantian, dining here feels like a great escape from the confines of the four walls of your house.
Zion Hidden Garden

Zion Hidden Garden has something unique to offer. Relax, unwind and be one with nature as you enjoy a bubbling jacuzzi bath overlooking the city, Mt. Apo and Davao Gulf.
Their menu is limited to just snacks and short orders, but it’s worth visiting this getaway in Shrine Hills to enjoy the serenity of nature, view of the city and freshness of the air.

Picnics Davao is Davao’s first ever luxury picnic venue that offers both the best of the outdoors, with the luxury of great food and an aesthetically pleasing picnic setup.
They control the number of visitors per day so you have to book in advance. Located in Tacunan Toril, it’s a great get-away if you want to enjoy nature and steer clear of crowds.

A 45-minute drive to Brgy. Wangan, Calinan, Davao City from the city proper will lead you to Huni, an organic farm and restaurant. Most ingredients served are freshly picked from their farm.
Buffet menu lists will be different every time, as they get creative with what’s available from their harvested produce.
Aside from enjoying the cool, green surroundings and laidback vibe, you may also purchase artisanal breads, fresh vegetables, and locally-sourced products.
Jamelle Gardens Cafe

Jamelle Gardens Cafe is located in Davao’s favorite get-away from the summer heat, Eden Bayabas Toril.
The cool ambiance is a perfect pair for their specialty native suman and hot chocolate, or brewed coffee.
Davao is blessed to have these hidden nooks and hill-top get-aways that are less than an hour away from the city. But if you want a private get-away from the concrete jungle, the best option is to invest in a vacation home.
Eden Ridge is situated at the foot of Mt. Talomo. With less than an hour’s drive from the city, this community features an Asian Tropical aesthetic amidst towering Norfolk Pine trees.
