Mayor's Message


Dearest Visitors and Future Development Partners:

Madayaw! Maayong pag-abot sa Island Garden City of Samal!

Daghang Salamat po for choosing our island city as your next travel and investment destination but also your home. You have become a family to the Samaleños who share in the responsibility of building self-reliant, disaster resilient, economically progressive and pro-environment community.

The City Government values equity and inclusiveness as we respond to the community’s need. Hence, we continuously strive to expand public service delivery through establishment of viable facilities, sustainable programs & projects and efficient outcome-based customer services. This is made possible with the proactive participation of our stakeholders, partner agencies and civil society groups geared towards accelerated Economic and Investment opportunities for our people.

More so, IGaCoS is a haven for leisure and pleasure. Reward yourself with a well-deserved vacation in a day or two. Indulge into our sundry and fun-filled activities: climb the highlands of Puting Bato, bask into the island’s 118 kilometers of white sand beaches; make your shout-outs at the deepest depression in Bito or say Hi! to the thousands giant clams in Adecor; pacify in the cold waters of Hagimit Falls or smile back to the famous Guinness’ Monfort Fruit Bats. Not to mention other natural wonders you, yourself, need to discover in our island. This is definitely an experience you should not miss!

And don’t forget to fill in your buckets with our very own sweet yellow mangos, our favoured mongo, coconut products and all other delectable delicacies that your family and friends will surely love. 

May you be enamoured with the paradise we call our home; our island we call IGaCoS. May you embrace the simple yet satisfying experience of living in an “Urban Center in a Garden Setting.” 

Welcome to our humble abode: the Island Garden City of Samal - where life is fun!

 

Sincerely yours,
