Coron Island

14 saves

San Jose, Philippines • Recommendation • 

The charm of Coron isn't found in the beach front of your hotel. Discover the mystic serenity between the hidden lagoons, calm waters, pristine white beaches of the islands surrounding Coron. It will always feel like a private escapade when you hire the small island tour guides to take you and a small group of friends. Swim in a emerald cove where the warm waters of the ocean meet the cold fresh mountain water. Grill your lunch of fresh fish on the boat and enjoy an ice-cold beer after as you soak up the late afternoon sun.

Caramoan

5 saves

Daraga, Philippines • Recommendation • 

There is a reason the reality TV show Survivor chose Caramoan to be one of the venues to strand their contestants. Caramoan is raw beauty. Getting to Caramoan isn't a joke either. 12 hours on the bus from Manila then 4-5 more hours on a ferry. But when you stand on the untouched golden sands and dip in crystal blue waters, it will be worth it. And without many people around, it feels like you own that island for the weekend.

Siargao

4 saves

Suriago City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

A well kept open secret, Siargao is haven for the few who love the waves, enjoy the nature and relish the simple life. Some say Siagao isn't for everyone and that's why its perfect for those who want to relax without the hustle and bustle of a commercial beach. Laze on the beach or take a surfing lesson or paddle up the coast, Then return to delicious home-cooked dishes of fresh seafood and soothing music.
