Located on the northeastern tip of Luzon, Palaui Beach does not only boast of a picturesque coastline but of panoramic coves, as well.
Adding charm to this destination are the nearby waterfalls, an 18th-century lighthouse, and windy terrains. Sit by the beach and listen to the howling sound of the waves.

About an hour’s drive from General Santos City, this six-kilometer crescent beach will make your jaw drop in awe.
Alona Beach is definitely one of the fast-rising destinations on this list, probably because of its proximity to Bohol’s top attractions such as Chocolate Hills, Loboc River, and the Tarsier Sanctuary.
Apart from its soft sand and pristine waters, the beach boasts of world-class diving and tours.
Still uninhabited, Kalanggaman Island provides tourists with more reasons to bask under the sun and wallow in the waves. There are no major resorts to check in to and overnight camping is allowed.

Paliton Beach is ideal for sunset-viewing and for water activities such as snorkeling, paddle boarding, and diving. After a short time in this paradise, you’ll have a hard time leaving.
