The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,641 islands1 sitting in the pleasantly warm waters of South-East Asia, bordering the Pacific Ocean. Basking in a tropical marine climate2, it is the perfect country for beach lovers of every kind. Whether it be for scuba diving, surfing, partying, camping, or simply escaping into blissful seclusion, there is a beach for just about anything. This abundance of seaside getaways did not escape worldwide attention. In 2017, two Philippine islands landed top spots on Travel + Leisure’s Top 10 Islands list3. Boracay’s party culture placed it third on the list while Palawan’s stunning natural beauty earned it first place. Long story short, when it comes to beaches, the Philippines is queen.
