Beaches in Philippines

Boracay Island

Boracay White Beach

Despite the emergence of a number of other popular tourist destinations, for many people the ultimate party place is still Boracay, and the best beach is still Boracay White Sand Beach.

Measuring about 5 km, the beach is noted for the cool breeze emanating from the waters, and the soft clear blue skies. Because there are plenty of accommodations nearby, Boracay White Beach, especially in the summer, is filled with people, frolicking in the waters.

Although most people go there in the daylight to get some of the sun, it is also a good idea to visit the place at night time.

Not only are there likely to be less people, but the combination of the softly blowing wind, the tranquil sea and the soft white sand beneath, plus the sight of the stars above, can make for a truly unique and exhilarating experience.


Bantayan Island

If you drive some 15 km up to the north end of Cebu, you’ll be gazing across Bantayan Island, home of secluded and breathtaking beaches. While strolling along the coast of the entire island is a delight, local and foreign guests are most enthralled by the stunningly white sands on the southwest section. The waters are also some of the purest and clearest you will see anywhere.

Malapascua Island Beach

Although not as well known, the Malapascua Beach is rapidly becoming the choice for tourists seeking a fresh alternative from the usual destinations.

Located at the farthest end of the island province (off the northeast coast), the island offers plenty of attractions, leading many to consider as the next big thing for divers and beach lovers to explore. With its exquisite sands, soothing greens, and brilliant azure waters, you will feel truly at peace, and at one with nature.

Mactan Island

The Queen City of the South has several that you can explore, but a growing majority simply find the allure of Mactan Island Beach irresistible.

Mactan Island is more than just a beach; it is an island paradise; the seashore is a sight to behold in the early morning light, but it will also bedazzle you in the night. Whether you are on your own, or with your friends, the sparkling waters and sand will simply amaze you.
