Life's a Beach: Your Guide to the Hottest Summer Destinations in the Philippines

Sun.. Sand.. Wind.. Water.. Lover.. Perfect! 


Summer's just around the corner. Be ready with your swimsuits, sunblock and underwater camera because I'm giving you the list of the hottest summer destinations that can only be found here in the Philippines. 


ANILAO BATANGAS
Batangas Sunrise

I will never forget our Batangas Getaway because this is where it all began. This is the reason why Hubby and I decided to explore the Philippines :) We didn't even realized it then, what we've been missing. 
Batangas Sunset


Anilao Batangas is one of the perfect getaway places near Manila. It is also a home for some of the known resorts like Pier Uno Resort, Maharlika Beach Resort [just to name a few]. Or you could visit nearby places like Calatagan, Lian and the famous Laiya. 

CEBU
Cebu was the most memorable trip I've ever had! Why? Because the first time I flew [in an airplane, of course] 'twas Cebu I visited. I believe it's way back 2005? When my previous company gave me the chance [and ticket] to fly to Cebu. If I remembered it correctly, it's still paper tickets :) 

Then on my second trip, now with hubby, we stayed at Cebu Marine Beach Resort. The staff were friendly and food is so-so. 
There are a lot of places that I still need to explore in Cebu. And if given a chance, we'll visit Malapascua, Bantayan Island, Kawasan Falls, Sumilon Island, Taoist Temple and Sky Adventure @ Crown Regency :) 

BOHOL
This place reminded me of how simple life can be... have a countryside trip [suggested places: chocolate hills, visit Phil Tarsier & Wildlife Sanctuary, have photo shoot @ Blood Compact site, explore Hinagdanan Cave, eat healthy in Bohol Bee Farm]...
Or simply take your time and enjoy the beach... :)

PAGUDPUD ILOCOS NORTE
Boracay of the North. That's Pagudpud Beach's known of... because of the powdery sand, just like in Bora. But what sets it apart from the others, is its unspoiled beauty, less populated beach and cheaper accommodations [based on our experience] :) 
While you're in Pagudpud, might as well visit other places like Bangui windmill, Pagudpud Viaduct and Cape Bojeador.

BORACAY
When planning for a summer vacation, who wouldn't think of Bora as their destination? Although it's Uber populated during summer, in my opinion, it's better to go there on those days because you will not enjoy it if you fly there during Ber-month [based on personal experience].
You could go to Mount Luho [owned by Bro Boy], rent a trike, go island hopping, helmet diving...
Or simply feed the fish :)

CORON PALAWAN PHILS
If I were to rate the places we've been to, I'd say that Coron will have 10/10... coz 'twas the one who took my breath away... literally :) Why? Check out these pictures and they will tell you why...

Suggested places to visit: Mt Tapyas, Malcapuya Island, Banana Island and Bulog Dos, Snorkeling @ Siete Pecados, Atuayan Beach, Barracuda & Kayangan Lake.

Suggested Accommodation: Princess of Coron
Kayangan Lake


There are still places that need to be explored... There are still hidden beauties that need to be discovered... Us? we're thinking of Subic or Davao... How about you? Where do you plan to go this summer? :)
