My Top 5 Go-To Beaches in the Philippines

The Philippines is known for its tourist spots that are budget friendly and worth visiting. Each island promises unique beauty – the people, food, culture, scenery and rich natural resources. Being an archipelago, the country has many beaches you can choose from. I posted 2 parts of the beaches I personally witnessed here:

There are just too many beaches to choose from but we only have one body, few vacation leave and holidays. Aside from that, travelling is not cheap. The list below are my top 5 go-to beaches in the Philippines. All the beaches are beautiful and these 5 are my personal bias.

  1. Coron, Palawan

Tbh, this is one of my dream destinations in the Philippines and my top pick amongst the beaches I have in my buckelist. I planned to go here this year but pandemic happened. The island’s majestic bluish-green clear water and rock formations are what I am looking forward. I’ll update the picture once I get here. (Disclaimer: picture not mine)

2. Cagbalete Island, Quezon

What I really like about this island is that you can walk from an island going to another island when it is low tide just make sure to monitor the time because water level can drastically change when you get caught up by high tide period.

3. Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro

If in Cagbalete you can walk from island to island, here you may want to experience going to another island through zip line. You will surely enjoy the vastness of the sea under you as you slowly traverse the line. The island is also one of the best areas to do scuba diving.

4. Magpupungkol Beach and Tidal Pool, Siargao Island

Siargao Island is known as a place for surfing. It is also perfect for those looking for a balanced quiet-night life moments in a trip. If you happen to be here, do not forget to visit this one. You will have fun jumping on rock formations, swimming in clear waters and walking on a long stretch of white sand.

5. Sipalay, Negros Occidental

This is not a single beach but a place that will allow you to hit a number of birds with one stone. In just a day I was able to visit Sugar Beach, Tinagong Island, Campomanes Bay, and Poblacion Beach by myself, DIY – just imagine the number of places you can visit with your 3D2N trip! My personal favorite is the Perth Paradise Beach Resort where you can swim and view the cute islets.

look at the sand and how it looks like sugar hence the name Sugar Beach
