Philippine Beaches

With more than seven thousand islands, the Philippines is truly blessed with some of the world'd best beaches. There are those which are truly popular like Boracay, Puerto Galera, Dakak and Pagudpud where lots of beach combers go. There are also those hard to reach area where you need to travel, trek or boat ride long hours just to get there.

I have been fortunate enough to have gone through several beaches in the Philippines and I would like to share fifteen of my favorite beaches that I have previously featured in this blog. Although I must admit that I prefer those laid-back, virgin beaches like Paitan Cove in the above photo, I do also like those popular beaches where I can people-watch.

White Beach, Boracay

White Island, Camiguin

Alona Beach, Bohol

Sabang Beach, Baler

Beach in Cagbalete Island

San Juan Beach, Siquijor

Inobahan Beach, Romblon

Puka Beach, Boracay

Beach in Capones Island

Alice Beach, Bantayan Island

Coco Beach, Gumasa

Puting Buhangin Beach, Pagbilao

White Beach, Puerto Galera

Saud White Beach, Pagudpud

The unwearied sun, from day to day,
Does his Creator's power display,
And publishes to every land,
The work of an Almighty hand.

So, where is your favorite beach destination in the Philippines?

  10. Beautiful photo, looks like an ideal beach, nice and secluded. So pretty.

  11. sarap talaga mag beach! apir for bohol, boracay and siquijor. :)

    i wasn't amazed in puerto galera. siguro kasi ang daming tao nung nagpunta kami kaya ok lang sya for me. :P

  12. i haven't experienced half of the number of beaches you've enjoyed.
    i like boracay, pagudpud, subic but only on less crowded days.
    have a blessed holy week, atty!

  13. Wow, you've been to a lot of beaches! Looks like I'll be making your blog a guide for my future escapades! How to get there is always my problem, haha!

    Thank you for showcasing the beauty of the Philippines!

  21. What a feature! Very nice beaches in the Philippines talaga.

    Natawa ako sa "people-watching". When we were younger, we normally term it, "mga boy scout or girl scout". =)

    Happy Easter!

  22. am not much of a beach person but I agree, some of the most stunning beaches in the world are here in our country :D happy Easter bai!

  23. Beautiful images from your country..
    Nice shots!!

  25. @ sheng - hayaan mo na, im sure marami pa kayo mapupuntahang beaches ni kyaw-kyaw. thanks.

    @ the scud - not bad at all bro :)

    @ vanessa - life is how you live it. prioritize mo travel hehehe, life is too short para di mo magawa gusto mo.

    @ 1ondoncalling - yup. with more than 7 thousand islands, expect more than 7 thousand beaches. :)

  26. @ the dong - talaga naman bro. the best talaga. at nadagdagan pa ito ng calaguas na pinakabest talaga.

    @ gillboard - hahaha. if you prefer laid-back beaches eh iwas ka sa boracay.

    @ kat - yup. there is no place like the islands philippines.

    @ chyng - pagbilao and romblon belong to my all time fave beaches. and i was not dissapointed about calaguas, in fact, kabog itong mga beaches ko na napuntahan na hahaha.

  27. @ johnny nutcase - thanks. i guess your referring to the first one. that beach is secluded indeed.

    @ princess_dyanie - korek. you should have gone to talipanan beach or aniao beach instead, less white pero maganda rin.

    @ docgelo - i have gone to baloy beach in subic and in do not like the sand there. i also prefer not-to-crowded beaches, in fact mas maganda kung virgin beaches para you have it all to yourself and your friends. :)

    @ halfcrazy - thanks. more than happy to help. just buzz me if u need help. :)

  28. @ photo cache - that is in bagac, bataan. lots of virgin beaches there. other beaches? i have my sight on siargao and negros. :)

    @ walking on water - thanks. siquijor and romblon are memorable because of the mysteries surrounding that two places. just take care ok? would love to go to sugar beach in sipalay also :)
