What is the Best Island for the Philippines Tours?
Boracay is the top one island to visit because of its world-famous 4km white powdery beach. It is well-equipped with nice hotels, bars, shopping center, and seafood market. Watersports lovers are advised to go there to experience various activities, such as snorkeling, parasailing, paddle boarding, and banana boat riding. After that, you can get some relaxation by watching sunset on boat, sunbathing on the cool beach, enjoying a massage, and joining the night beach party.
Coron is also a must-go destination in the Philippines vacation packages. It is a tranquil town, where the whole family can enjoy the beautiful sunset view, the magnificent limestone landscape underwater in Kayangan Lake, hot spring, colorful corals and wreck diving in many unspoiled islands around Coron town.
For honeymoon couples, El Nido is highly recommended. Its original natural view is well retained. Apart from its soft sand, sparkling waters, and diverse water sports, it is blessed with spectacular limestone formations, lovely fishes and corals. Unlike busy Boracay, El Nido is a rather quiet place. It takes about half day to reach El Nido by car or ferry, while it is definitely worth it.
If you want to explore the vivid undersea ecosystem, just head to Balicasag Marine Sanctuary in Bohol. Another highlight in Bohol is the countryside tour to visit Chocolate Hills and Tarsier Sanctuary and watch firefly by boat.
