Must-visit Beaches in the Philippines

This tropical gem in Asia is favored with more than 7,000 islands featuring breathtaking landscapes of blue and green. If you’re a self-confessed Thalassophile, you’ll fall in love with the Philippines in a heartbeat. Here are some of the must-visit beach destinations in the country that are worthy of second or even nth visit.


Palawan is mainly divided into three stunning destinations― Puerto Princesa, El Nido, and Coron. Each of this island takes pride in something that will capture not just your eyes but also your heart. If you are a beach lover, then El Nido and Coron offer you world-class stretches of immaculate white sands and clear blue waters. Puerto Princesa, on the other hand, is the home of a UNESCO Heritage Site, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.


A perfect definition of small yet superabundant, Camiguin is a petite pear-shaped island in the southern part of the Philippines, highlighting its white sand beaches and unique attractions. Most of the interesting and scenic spots in the city, including the Stations of the Cross and the Walkway to the Old Volcano, Sunken Cemetery, Sto. Nino Cold Spring and Old Guiob Church Ruins, are upshots of the island’s volcanic activities. It’s no wonder why the place is called the ‘Island Born of Fire’.


Long famed for its extensive beach scenery, vibrant nightlife, and exhilarating outdoor activities, Boracay has always been a favorite among local and international tourists. In this small island, you will discover a fascinating life at the beach. The landscape, the recreation, the locals, the food― these are just some of the reasons why Boracay continues to entice wanderers in a unique way. As of this writing, the popular island is under a much-needed rehabilitation; hence, not accessible for tourists until further notice.


If you have a thing for strong currents and breath-snatching vistas, then Siargao is your dream destination. Considered as the Philippines’ surfing capital, this small island in the south is blessed with impressive year-round waves that complement well with the scenic natural backdrop. Wandering around the island is easy and fun, plus there are other exciting things to do apart from surfing such as cliff jumping at Magpupungko Rock Pools, caving at Tayangban Cave Pools, island hopping at Guyam, Daku, and Naked Island and the list continues.


Laid-back island living in Panglao. This is probably the best way to cap off your beach hopping adventure in the Philippines. Panglao Island has been known for its stunning beach stretches and spectacular dive spots blessed with vibrant corals and different fish species. Alona Beach in Panglao is the go-to holiday destination for tourists.

Of course, your trip wouldn't be complete without your travel essentials, including a watch from our beautiful Clarence Collection.
