They say you can never pick a favorite beach in the Philippines. That’s because the country has so many beautiful beaches to be proud of. With 7,107 islands edged by powdery white sand and turquoise and deep blue waters filled with a great deal of variety of marine, picking a favorite can be tough.
Here are some of the very best…
El Nido Palawan
I’ve never been to Palawan but if I’d have the chance, El Nido would be the first place in my list. Aside from the sugary white sand and crystal clear waters, the views I’ve seen from pictures and videos are spectacular. The limestone formations, empty lagoons, marble cliffs, prehistoric caves and waterfalls are what the tourists love to explore.
When you say white beach, one easily thinks of Boracay. I’ve been there only once with the family. We stayed there for 5 days and I loved every minute of it. If you love the night life, you’ll love Boracay because the beach comes alive at night with candle-lit sand castles, cozy restaurants and bars that are open until dawn. But if you are looking for some place that is quiet, there is a less boisterous side of Boracay where you can enjoy the sand, coves, caves and cliffs.
It was only recently that the island became so popular. Now, tourists and travelers come to Panglao because of its gorgeous beaches. Dolphin watching, whale spotting, diving with barracudas, jackfish, sea snakes and brilliant coral formations are just some of the fun things you can do in Bohol. While there, you may want to visit the place that made Bohol famous, the Chocolate Hills.
Palaui Island, Cagayan Valley
Palaui island is known to be a secret island and they say, only the brave and persevering bother to visit. Why? It’s because the gorgeous white sands surrounded by volcanic rocks on one side kiss the blue and green waters on the other. If you love snorkeling and diving, you’ll love it here. Palaui boasts of stunning coral gardens and a rich marine reserve.
Caramoan, Camarines Sur
The place was named after the local sea turtle, Caramoan. You’ll be amazed with the huge boulders and rock formations you’ll see in Caramoan. But the fun does not end there. They have caves, waterfalls, freshwater pools, underground streams and lagoon to explore.
These are just my top 5 beaches. I know there are still a lot that I have not mentioned but I leave them for another post.
