There are a ton of questions that travel bloggers can easily answer when someone asks them about something. How to get there. Where’s the best place to stay. What to do in a particular destination. However, if you want them to stop dead in their tracks and give them a hard time, just ask this: what’s your favorite place?
That’s exactly what this article is all about. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most beautiful beaches in the Philippines, according to some of the known bloggers in the country. While it may be a hard choice for them with so many to choose from, they do consider a couple of things before they label a destination their favorite — the landscape as well as personal experiences being among these.
Calaguas, Camarines Norte
Freckling the waters off the coast of Vinzons, Camarines Norte, the Calaguas group of islands hide a few pretty secrets. However, in recent years, they’ve been discovered by more beach bums who all fell love with the place. Blogger Angel Juarez (aka Lakwatsero) is one of them.
“Mahabang Buhangin is a perfect paradise with its long stretch of fine white sand dotted with volcanic rocks on its both ends,” Juarez describes. He further added that the place is the most frequented camping and swimming site, making it a top choice for tourists.
Port Barton, Palawan

Although not as famous as El Nido and Puerto Princesa, San Vicente is nothing short of stellar. This relatively low profile is what makes Port Barton appealing to some travelers. Its forests are undisturbed, its shores practically untouched. It may be the reason why Port Barton, one of its 10 Barangays, is the top choice for Edgar Alan.
“It has supple sands hugged by jungle-clad mountains, turquoise waters and the lovely coral gardens where turtles and others marine animals cruise, framed by the sapphire-skis and the honey-colored sunsets,” recalls Alan. He further adds that this is an idyllic beach retreat that no one can ever match.
Naked Island, Siargao

It’s time to get naked — not literally anyway. Blogger Harry Balais states says this about our next entry, Naked Island. “In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Lianga Bay in Surigao del Sur is an island that’s incomparable to its neighbors in Britania Group of Islands.”
Naked Island is made up of a long white sand bar that’s completely free of trees or any infrastructures. Here, you can get lost in the horizon during or near high tides.
Subic Beach, Sorsogon
Of the miles and miles of shorelines he has seen, Owen is pretty much convinced that Subic Beach is his top choice. Hanging on an edge of Calintaan Island in Matnog, Sorsogon, Subic Beach looks just like your ordinary Philippine beach at first glance. The white coral sand, the swaying palms not to mention the clear waters are an awesome sight to behold.
Among all the most beautiful beaches in the Philippines, this has to be the most beautiful of them all, says Owen. As a matter of fact, the place is so beautiful that you may think of a number of cliché ways to describe the beach as you walk the length of the shore, looking for things that beach-goers are wont to look for.
