Brief description of the livelihood:

Mabua beach is the only family friendly recreational site the City of Tandag can offer. It has a long stretch of shoreline where children can safely play. Its proximity to the city center is less than 10-minute tricycle-ride away. Locals come to the beach any time of the day with no entrance fees collected. Cottages are privately owned and are being rented at affordable prices. There are no restaurants by the beach although vendors can be seen peddling their stuff, hopping from one cottage to the other. KASAMMA envisions that their new offer of boat service for island hopping plus food services will create demand from the beach goers.
