Son of a Beach!

Philippines is an archipelago gifted with natural bounties. Each of its 7100 islands offers its guests with numerous attractions to explore. Pearl of the Orient Seas as it is called, is a haven of natural wonders such as captivating volcanoes, majestic waterfalls, and sparkling white sand beaches.

This week’s theme of Ate Jan’s Travel Diva is all about favorite beach destination and this gives me the chance to share those beaches I have visited and beaches that I wish to go one of these days.

Bohol – Panglao Beach. This is one of Bohol’s prides aside from its Chocolate Hills, Bol-anon hospitality, century-old churches and delicious “calamay”. Its waters are just so inviting that I wasn’t able to resist diving into it despite the scorching heat of the 10 o’clock sun.

Palawan. Honday Bay, Starfish Island.  This is just one of the many islets any tourist can visit in Puerto Princesa, Palawan passing Dos Palmas, Snake Island and many others. We spent a day of swimming here and did we catch sights of fish, starfish and well, Andre caught or was she caught by a jelly fish? I bet this is one of her unforgettable beaches.

Camiguin. White Island. Camiguin takes pride of its various water forms. You name it – cold spring, hot spring, waterfalls, and of course, the best of them all – the White Island. And because this is just a small island, you can actually just hop from one body of water to another without the need of changing your swim wear.

Siargao. Cloud Nine Shores. How could I ever forget my 29th birthday celebration in time with the school’s mid summer tour in this famous surfing island? Well, my friends and I never missed the surfing experience. It was fun and thrilling indeed to stand on the surf board once the surf assistants push you through the waves. I’m sure Jinky, Belle and I stood on board once but Regino just didn’t make it…ooppss… 🙂

Boracay. But this one is a place I have yet to visit  someday. This will be one of my next beach destination.  Soon, I will be in Boracay to experience its night life in beach and submerge in its cool blue waters.

Batangas – Anilao. This last one is another beach destination I should never miss. My beach life will never be complete I guess if without me experiencing what Batangas can offer. Who knows, I might be lucky to get invites from my friends from there. Hmmnn…

And I’ll make sure that I will be ready with my own  camera so I could properly take coverage of the whole SON of a beach experience.

    Hi Brother,
    Philippines is truly blessed with beautiful beaches. I am happy that I have been to one of your favorite beach, Camiguin. Dropping a line for TT. Please drop me a line too at

    Take care,

  12. bev says:

    philippines is indeed a home of beautiful beaches….dropping by from TT…

  13. iris says:

    “I love my own” so definitely I highly recommend the Panglao Beach…Though personally it’s not my favorite beach in Bohol ( primarily because there are still other beaches which are far more mesmerizing yet unknown to the tourists). Some of which are the Balicasag Island, Pamilacan and Cabilao Island.

    One need not to go to Maldives or cruising along the Carribean islands, Philippines has so much to offer!!!!

  14. marlon says:

  15. bhegzz says:

  16. princess says:

    Among the beautiful beaches mentioned, Boracay beach is really my favorite. You will never regret if you visit the place. The white sand, the rides, the view and the beautiful sunset really catches my heart! Panglao beach and Balicasag Island in Bohol are highly recommendable too. Philippines is a PARADISE. And I’m very proud that I’m one of those lucky persons to get the chance to see the beauty of it. 🙂

    It’s a great accomplishment for Enzo in coming up this site. It’s truly fascinating seeing the varied rich bounties our country offers to everyone, not only for the local tourists but as well as for the foreign ones.
    I, MYSELF have not yet gone to those beautiful beaches but I’m looking forward to it especially now, it has been vividly featured by Enzo’s which awakens my curiosity to wonder the truly scenic spots…

  39. the beach concept is really great.. it reminds me that it is the only place where you can really relax and feel mother nature’s gift… a kind of happiness which can’t be explain.

  40. wow. amazing beaches! been to camiguin… next on my list is palawan. 😀 (i wish)

    Thanks for joining last week’s meme.

    This week, our theme is to post your travel photos (places only, please). Here’s a sample:
