Spring break is officially here and if your planning to head out to the beach why not try something different and head out to the tropical islands of the Philippines. Out of the 7, 107 islands of the country, there are thousands of beautiful and breathtaking beaches that are worth your time. To get you started here are some of the top destinations that you might want to try out.
Boracay Island, Philippines
Not to be confused with bora-bora, Boracay is a favorite vacation spot for many local and international celebrities. Boracay is a small tropical island known for its sparkling white-sand beaches, lively bar and restaurants which offers surprisingly inexpensive, yet quite sumptuous buffets, ranging from P75 to P 120.
Go diving, snorkeling, sailing and boat trips, do a massage, or go horse bike riding, the island is definitely a feast for the senses.
El Nido, Palawan
El Nido Resorts is a group of eco-resorts located in the El Nido-Taytay municipalities in northern Palawan, Philippines. El Nido is currently comprised of Miniloc Island Resort and Lagen Island Resort in El Nido, Apulit Island Resort in Taytay, and the newly opened eco-luxury property, Pangulasian Island Resort in El Nido.
Although not as prominent as Boracay, El Nido certainly has its share of natural beauty. Known for its breath-taking location surrounded by luscious greenery, El Nido is the perfect getaway from all the bustling noise of the metro.
Caramoan is gaining popularity as a reputed beach destination in the Philippines with its beautiful white sand beach and lustrous greeneries makes it the ultimate vacation paradise. Caramoan is a first-class municipality in the province of Camarines Sur, Bicol Region, Philippines. Located at the tip of the Caramoan Peninsula, it is a rugged place of land extending into the waters of the Maqueda Channel on the north and east and Lagonoy Gulf on the south.
Its untamed beauty has captured the eyes of international producers as a set for the ‘Survivor’ series. White sand beach, clear blue waters and peaceful ambiance make a great vacation destination for everyone.
Pagudpod, Ilocos Norte
Facing the West Philippine Sea, Pagudpud’s beaches are nothing short of amazing: Stretches of white sand lined with coconut trees and crystal-blue water. Located at the northernmost tip of the Luzon island, Pagudpud is not as popular as Boracay or El Nido and has not been overrun by tourists yet but is getting there.
If you want a more secluded beach, try the Blue Lagoon in Barangay Balaoi. Here you’ll see fishermen hauling in their catch. Feel free to check out their catch and bargain for that huge lapu-lapu (grouper) or lobster. You can then have them cooked at one of the nearby restaurant shacks. Unlike Boracay the accommodation here is much cheaper and affordable.
These are just some of the hundred of beaches in the Philippines that you might want to check out. For more information on these locations and other tourist spots, visit http://itsmorefuninthephilippines.com/.
