“Puting Balas” is a visayan term which means white sand. Located at Kisulad in Sta. Maria, Davao del Sur, the place was named after this because it’s the only white sand shoreline, stretching about 2 kilometers long. The neighboring shorelines have gradients of brown to black sand, which seems, Puting Balas had just been artificially dumped with white sand… But, amazingly, it’s all natural.
