Best beaches in Philippines . . .

• White Beach, Boracay

White Beach is aptly named, and the sand here literally seems like sugar. The beach is three mile long, and the sand here does not heat up easily either. White beach is very popular with tourists, and it gets a bit busy here, especially during the vacation period in Apr – May. There are a great number of hotels, restaurants and bars located at the beachfront, and the food is cheaply priced and cosmopolitan. Dec to May is the best period for tourists.

• Malapascua Island, Cebu

Malapascua Island is situated at the north east edge of Cebu island. The island is home to a huge number of dive sites as well as a top dive center. Thresher sharks are famous here. The best time to visit is the Feb – May period. It is in fact hailed as the next Borcay.

• Bantayan Island, Cebu
