Innocence Regained in Dawis Beach - Digos City

Innocence abounds in these quaint little beaches where naked children dive from abandoned docks. I caught a throng of them running around in ecstatic fun and frolic. Digos City is, after all, still a "backroad" in the community of backpackers. This area of Dawis Beach is free of charge. I just took a walk at the jetty, observing people enjoy the waters.

This is the Eye in the Sky!

Children unmindfully running around naked and malice-free, then diving down the not-so-shallow waters.

The northern strip of Dawis Beach, the more popular area for day tourists.

The southern strip of Dawis Beach where you can enjoy the waters in sweet isolation. Small residential huts dot this strip of fine gray sands. From a distance, you can see Hagonoy's Leling Beach.
