... Mike's Beach Resort in the town of Dauin. Nice little place with 8 rooms and very hospitable people. Once again, we grabbed our motor bikes and took off for yet another day on the road.

Our room had a huge ceiling fan which, combined with 24 hour electricity and intensely comfortable beds, meant a really really nice sleep! There is very little to do in Dauin which was perfect for us as we didn't want to do anything for a few days! We chilled out by ...
