10. Samal Island in Davao City and Calatagan, Batangas
First on our list is Samal Island located in Davao City. Although Samal Island was once a hidden island only known by the Davaoeños, it has been getting some popularity in the recent years because of its white sand beaches that run for kilometers and the beautiful blue waters that come with it.
From Davao City, just head straight to Sasa Wharf or Sta. Ana Wharf where you can find boats to bring you to Samal Island. Enjoy a luxurious stay at the famous Pearl Farm Beach Resort or go back to basics and enjoy a peaceful day in Dayang Beach and Babu Santa Beach in the nearby Talicud Island.
9. Panglao in Bohol and Nagsasa Cove, Zambales
When the word “Bohol” is mentioned, its famous chocolate hills will immediately come to mind. But Bohol also has its own set of beautiful shore lines located in Panglao, a couple of minutes’ drive from its city center, Tagbilaran. In the recent years, Panglao has been getting negative reviews because of the hundreds of establishments surrounding its famous Alona Beach, but the powdery white sand is still worth a visit if you’re in the area. If you prefer more privacy, you can stay at some of the exclusive resorts in the area like Bohol Beach Club to give you a better view and feel of the waters of Panglao.
8. Siquijor Island and Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro
This little province in Visayas is known for witchcraft, dark magic, and aswang (monster), but unbeknownst to many, Siquijor Island is safe and beautiful. It has its own amazing beach to boot. You can roam around Siquijor Island by renting a motorbike or hiring tricycles for a day tour, but the real reward is the beautiful beach of Salagdoong. The beach is surrounded with humungous rock formation, and the shoreline is short and quite rocky as well, but the water is ever lovely with its emerald-like colors.
7. Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
On our seventh spot is Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. After you visit the famous windmills of Bangui, make sure you head over to Pagudpud’s Blue Lagoon and enjoy some fun under the sun. Despite the land being largely owned by Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center, the beach is still open to the public.
Its creamy powdery sand and cerulean waters are just some of the many attractions in Pagudpud. The always windy weather of the area makes it a perfect spot for kite surfing as well. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, you may go to Hannah Beach. It offers its open water zip line to the public, with more than one kilometer worth of ride.
6. Punta Bulata, Negros Island
Sixth on our list is Punta Bulata in Negros Island. Punta Bulata is actually a private resort in Negros Island, four hours’ drive away from Bacolod City. Upon reaching the island, you will be welcomed with creamy soft sand and clear waters with a play of blue and green colors. Aside from Punta Bulata’s own shores, tourists also visit Danjugan Island where you can swim and stroll and take pictures with its sand bar. They also offer diving adventures for underwater aficionados! You can bring your own equipment or visit their dive facility for assistance.
5. Guimaras Island
Halfway on our list is Guimaras Island, particularly Raymen Beach Resort located at Alubihod beach, the most popular beach in the island. Albeit a populous public resort, Raymen Beach maintains the beach properly so you can expect a clean shoreline and clear waters. Pebbles and stones are abundant in the area, but the clarity of the sea and the many rock formations surrounding the area will make you forget the stony shores.
4. Coron Island, Palawan
On our fourth spot is Coron Island in Palawan. This famous island has been wowing Filipinos for years, but recently, even international media and foreign tourists can’t get enough of this picturesque paradise. People fell in love with Coron’s rugged greeneries, intertwined lakes, and huge rock formations that bring you closer to Mother Nature. Although hundreds of people flock this famous island, Coron is still worth a visit, because it’s not known as “The Last Frontier” for nothing. Take a picture of the famous Kayangan Lake or visit the wreck sites of Barracuda Lake if you are a diving fanatic.
3. Sipaway Crystal Beach in Negros Occidental and Baler, Aurora
Now on our top 3 is Sipaway Crystal Beach found in Negros Occidental. Sipaway is geographically known as Refugio Island and has yet to be on the radar of most travelers. But despite being relatively unknown, people around the area has been coming to Sipaway for years for some much-needed relaxation. Sipaway Crystal Beach is just one among the many resorts that can be found in the area that offers various water sports and activities like snorkeling, kayaking, and scuba diving.
2. Calaguas Island in Camarines Norte and Bantayan Island, Cebu
Calaguas Island is another gorgeous beach that resembles the beauty of Boracay with its white sand and crystal clear blue waters, but without the restaurants and many establishments. Calaguas Island is actually a group of islands but the most frequented is Tinaga Island where you can find a long stretch of white sand beach known as Mahabang Buhangin. Because the island is yet to be developed, there are no flashy restaurants or accommodations in the area; even cellular service is not available. Hence, you’ll have more time to connect with nature and spend the night in a tent.
1. Boracay Island
Finally, the beach that won the number one spot is Boracay Island. Despite being recognized as crowded and overly developed, people still visit Boracay every chance they get because nothing beats the paradise-like beach of this island. Even foreign travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler named it the best island in the world in 2016.
If there can be an original white, powdery sand beach in the country, it will be Boracay. Its sand is consistent in texture and color, whatever “station” may you be in.
