Summer’s almost over but it is never too late to get your own dose of vitamin sea in our country’s best beaches.
BRB Boracay, and say hello to these 5 beach destinations that will surely satisfy your sand-and-sea craving.
1. White Island, Camiguin
The White sandbar of Camiguin is one of the most popular destinations in the whole of Camiguin. Only a few kilometers away from the northern area of Camiguin Island, it’s the only beach in the area that has fine white sand. It also has an excellent view of Mt. Vulcan and Hibok-Hibok.
2. Sohoton Natural Park, Siargao
Siargao is indeed a popular surfer town, but what a lot of people don’t know is that one of the main attractions of this province is the Sohoton Natural Park.
Located in the south of the province, the park features a 60-meter long tunnel passable only by boat during the low tide season. Within, you can discover the Hagukan Cave or the Diving Cave.

3. Anda Beach, Bohol
Bohol has a way of drawing you into its embrace. Aside from the popular Chocolate Hills, there are a whole lot of things to explore in this famed island. Visit Anda Beach and enjoy its white and powdery sand.
Another spot to visit is the Cabagnow Cave Pool located in the outskirts of Anda. With its rich blue waters that go as deep as 12 feet, it’s worth taking a dip (or a dive) in the cave pool.

Dubbed as the “longest white beach in the Philippines” with its 14-kilometer stretch, San Vicente is a budding destination in Palawan, seen to be at par with Coron’s fine white sand beaches.

How to get there: Conveniently enough, PAL is soon opening a direct flight from Clark to San Vicente on October 28. From San Vicente Airport, you may hire a trike driver to give you a tour of the beach.
