If heaven is made out of white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, and infinite palm trees, then the Philippines must be heaven. With over 7,000 islands, the Philippines is a tropical island nation full of water sports activities and different cultures.

Traveling in the Philippines can be quite cheap and domestic flights and ferries make it easy to get around. It’s best to have at least 2 weeks, so you can visit multiple islands.

Figuring out things to do and where to go in the Philippines is pretty simple. You just need to pick an island and go. Because every single island has the same amazing beaches. The Philippines is also rich in marine life and has excellent scuba diving spots.

The most popular tourist destination is Boracay in the Philippines. The island may be packed with tourists but the beaches here are still amazing, the nightlife is great, and kiteboarding is at its best.

Palawan is one of the best islands that comes with a full package and it’s less crowded. You should visit Coron, El Nido, and Puerto Princesa for world-class scuba diving, island hopping, kayaking, hiking, freediving, and cliff jumping.

You can make your way to other islands and enjoy more diversity, such as swimming with the whale sharks in Cebu, taking a hike to mysterious Chocolate Hills in Bohol, and surfing the perfect breaks in Siargao.

The Philippines is more than a tropical beach paradise and there are many places to go on the main island and other parts of the country.

You can visit the historic parts of the capital city Manila, climb to the world’s smallest active volcano Taal, and explore the magnificent Banaue rice terraces. If you go to non-touristy destinations like Port Barton and Siquijor, you’ll see the true Filipino culture.
