Beaches in the Philippines (Part 2)

Last time I posted some beautiful beaches in the Philippines, but the country has a lot that one post is not enough. Here’s the part 2.

1. Sugar Beach, Sipalay, Negros Occidental

Located in the sugar bowl of the Philippines, the sand of this beach looks like unmilled sugar, hence the name! But I’m warning you the sand is salty so do not dare taste it.

2. Magalawa Island, Palauig, Zambales

Zambales really has a lot to offer including this one. Wake up to a beautiful sunrise while walking on a sandbar.

3. Lola Sayong, Gubat, Sorsogon

A 12-15-hr road trip from Manila by land, this beach will allow you to relax from the city noise with the sound of its waves. They also offer surfing activity for beginners and pros.

4. Patar Beach, Bolinao, Pangasinan

The bluish-green color of the water that kisses the shore is a view it promises. If a day of stay is not enough, there are inns around that offer overnight stay and stores where you can get your food.

5. Borawan, Padre Burgos, Quezon

A white beach for your mermaid self. It will only take 3-4 hours land trip from Manila. The water is clear and calm but be careful not to swim to the area with lots of jellyfish.

6. Magpupungko Beach and Tidal Pool, Siargao Island

Siargao is known to its Cloud 9 surfing camp but in case you still have time to spare, you should go here. You’ll surely enjoy the adrenaline rush of jumping off the high rock formation but be alert on the level of the water. High tide with strong waves starts at 10am.

7. Maniwaya, Marinduque

“Maniwaya ka sanang, minamahal kita.”. Yes, believe me when I say you’ll fall in love with this place. Watch the mesmerizing sunset and interact with the fishes on the shore.

8. Samal Island, Davao

Another beach where you can walk to its vastness during low tide. A great place if you want to have some quiet soul searching and adventure at once.

Planning to go to this island because of the Survivor show? Go ahead and book that trip cos you won’t regret. Try island hopping and enjoy seafoods that won’t break the bank.

10. Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro

Lost for things to do in a beach? This one doesn’t only offer a swim, an island-to-island zip line awaits you? Scuba diving is also a must-try here.
