It would take several lifetimes to explore the 7,000+ islands that make up the Philippine Archipelago. But, probably the best place I’ve been in the Philippines is El Nido, Palawan. The 5-6 hour van ride from Puerto Princesa is definitely way worth it!
Camotes Island, particularly Santiago Bay area happens to be our favorite go-to place when we want to move away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is a wide range of activities that everyone can do – whether you are looking for some quiet time or some adrenaline adventures.
When most people come to Santiago Bay, they come for the beach. Little did they know, this place is also home to one of the most promising reggae bands in Cebu. They are called High Tide. Even though you may not be the biggest reggae fan in the world, this reggae band from the islands of Camotes could positively surprise you.
Siargao in general can be expensive. So, if you are on a tight budget, a resort for under $20 for two people is a gem. You’d be glad to know that at this price, your comfort and convenience is not compromised.
The mister and I spent the New Year’s in Siargao as the last stop of our backpacking adventures in Northern Mindanao. And, I would love to go back and finally make a proper surfing without hitting my face on the bottom of the sea lol.
Swimming with whale sharks is a dream of many ocean lovers. Huge slowly and safety animals go as giant barge a few meters from you. It’s like a fairytale, isn’t it? Breathing stops, primal fear and a joy capture your mind.
Being right next to Cebu, Bohol is a very convenient weekender for me. I love the fact that is not as saturated as Cebu City and there are tons of fun filled things to do. I’ve been there 3 times and I still have a long list to do including diving and cycling up in the air (yes, it is possible) but more on the later.
Your trip to Bantayan Island will be one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of your lifetime. From the moment that your tired feet touch the powder soft white sand beaches, till your aching body is soothed by the warm crystal clear water, you will never forget this island paradise.
Bantayan island is one of the top island destinations in the Philippines. Tourists fall in love with its crystal clear waters and long stretch of powdery white sand. The breathtaking sunset will really spice up your romantic walks on the beach. It’s unsaturated beauty and the sweet smiling natives made the island as it is now.
