It's almost SUMMER! I miss Philippines' nice beaches. I am a lone traveler. I often go to the beach to unwind, to see people, to meet new faces, to experience new crowd. With these experiences, I have compiled photos and memories. This compilation is based on my personal experiences. 

Coron Palawan for me is the best. It has many things to offer and the experience is totally different. You'll be able to see different attractions from nice beaches to lakes to hot spring to coral garden to museum. Name it and you'll have it. Visit Coron and see it for yourself.

More of Coron Palawan by kim under the sun:

El Nido is similar to Coron but fewer attractions only those beaches and islands. But these beaches and islands are magnificent. You have four options on which attractions you are going to take. TOUR A, TOUR B, TOUR C and TOUR D. 

View from OG's Pension House.

Island stop over with Tour C.

Getting There:
From Puerto Princesa: Take a Bus, Jeepney or Van. The most comfortable and fastest ride is the Van. But if you want to go for an adventure, take the Bus and ride on top. 
From Manila: Take the flights by Seair

Insider Tip:
Take an early schedule from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. Stay at OG's Pension House, they offer cheap rates with free breakfast. The location is perfect for the beachfront view.

What I love about Boracay:  the crowd, the party, beachfront, sunset. I love seeing people with their best swim suits. The beachfront is very wide and the sand grain is very fine. Sun-Bathing is perfect in Boracay.

Getting There: 
From Manila/Cebu to Caticlan/Kalibo by Cebu Pacific AirAirphilExpress.comPhilippine Airlines and SeairZestAir
From Clark to Caticlan/Kalibo by SeairSeair and Air
International flight from Pusan, Seoul, Shanghai, Taipei by ZestAir

Insider Tip: 
It takes almost two-hour bus ride from Kalibo to Caticlan. St. Vincent's Cottages in Boracay offers affordable rates and located between station 3 and station 2. There are free booklets from Caticlan Port upon departure to Boracay Island. 

It is similar to Boracay but it has shorter beach front. Sand grain is also as thin as Boracay's in some parts. 
This is the nearest Beach Getaway from Cebu in terms of land trip. Mactan Island Cebu has also nice beaches but it is already used by the luxury hotels. Unlike Bantayan, the beachfront is shared from one resort to the other. 

Booths for the Celebration of Fiesta during Lenten Season.

The Bantayan Crowd

People usually bring their own tents for cheaper accommodation fees. 

Getting There: 
From Cebu City: Take the Bus going to Hagnaya from North Bus Terminal Station, North Reclamation Area Cebu City. 

Insider Tip:
Visit Bantayan during the Lenten Season. Instead of having sacrifices, the Island is full of so much party, food because it is also their Fiesta.

Siargao is known as the surfing capital. Perfect place to learn surfing. But, how about those who are not surfers? Siargao has a nice beachfront in General Luna. There are also three small islands you could visit which is also perfect for non-surfers. Go and rent a boat and go to Bucas Grande which has similar landscape and seascape to Palawan's.

Sohoton Cave Bucas Grande. Place for millions of Jellies only found in Sohoton and Palau.

The Cloud 9

The Cloud 9: best visit every September for Surfing Competition

Getting There:
Take the boat/ship by Montenegro Lines from Surigao City Port. The ship docks at Dapa Siargao then rent a tricycle to General Luna. Cebu Pacific Air has direct flight to Siargao. You may also check and Philippine Airlines for flights going to Butuan.

Insider Tip:
Do not travel during high season of monsoon. You won't enjoy the trip.
