philippines TRAVEL GUIDE


White sand beaches fringe the thousands of islands, stacks and islets poking from the azure ocean of the Philippines. While the Philippines is heaven for those wanting a relaxing holiday in a tropical paradise it's the countless adventures to be had both on land and in the water that made me fall in love with this place.

The Philippines is a veritable playground for divers, snorkelers, adventurers and adrenaline junkies.

Surrounded by seas and ocean you can dive with manta rays, thresher sharks and hammerheads, swim with majestic whale sharks and snorkel with technicolour coral and fish. Floating around the Bacuit Archipelago is as beautiful above the waters surface as below and a multi day adventure from El Nido to Coron is well worth it.

On land there's underground rivers, hikes, canyoning adventures and a million smiling happy faces so wherever you go in the Philippines you'll be sure to leave with a golden glow, happy heart and a whole bunch of ticks off your bucketlist.

I’d read about Manta Bowl, a cleaning station for manta rays, that can be reached on...

Putting your mask beneath the surface and coming face to face with the biggest fish in the ocean is a surreal, electric experience. The sheer size of whale sharks should be daunting but these majestic creatures quickly put you at ease as they slowly, elegantly glide through the water beneath you.

7107 islands make up The Philippines but it was the crystal clear azure waters and exploring what lies beneath that drew me there. 3...
