“Let’s Go to the Beach Beach”
There are a lot of beaches in the previous places mentioned but here are the other beaches you should check out. ( Other than Boracay 😉 )
Sorcery and witchcraft are not the reason why this place is getting so much attention, but it is because of all the dazzling and elegant beaches here. Paliton, Candanay Sur, Salagdoon, Dumanhog are just SOME of the MANY beaches that you can go to in Siquijor.
Known as Boracay of the North (of course without the huge crowd), if white sandy beached and crystal clear blue waters are what you want to see, Pagudpud has a lot of beaches that can give you exactly just that.
Looking for somewhere to go near Manila? Batangas has more than 10 beaches you might want to check out this summer. E.g. Laiya, Anilao, Masasa, Fortune Island, etc.
A tropical paradise away from the polluted and crowded city, what’s in Negros Oriental that you have to check out is Manjuyod White Sand Bar. The whole place screams peace and serenity, perfect for couple or family vacation trips.
Keeping it Cool
The summer capital of the Philippines is the usual choice but it never gets old. The people, the weather, the STRAWBERRIES, and nature are just some of the reasons why it’s still a great destination.
Maybe summer is also the time that you’d be like Angelica Panganiban, where you go soul searching, trying to rebuild yourself. The best place to heal your broken heart is in the cold mountains of Sagada.
Try ziplining and waterfalling! Worried about getting too sweaty with the trek and the heat? Lake Sebu actually has cool weather.
Bargains and adventures
Davao is an interesting place to visit every summer. It hosts the Visit Davao Fun Sale that features big discounts on country tours, beach tours, shopping, dining and hotels in Davao, Samal and even as far as Davao Oriental.
