Boracay

The area is known Western Visayas region and it lies northwest to Panay Islands. Boracay is famous for its exquisite beaches and clean seashores. The beaches here offer vivid kind of water sports along with mesmerizing parties in the nights. Even though, it should not be mistaken as an island for party lovers only. If you want to relax down the beach and enjoy the sunshine, you must go to station 4,5 and 6  for soothing and no disturbance environment. The station 1,2 and 3 are more crowded and people who like to hang out fill this place all the time in order to enjoy the moments.

Mindoro

This is the seventh largest island in terms of area and has been underdeveloped for the large of its time. This makes it a very wild and adventurous place which is not disturbed by the human-made invention until recent times. There are many forests which have such a dense greenery that it is almost impossible to penetrate it. The local villages look ecstatic and their farms can mesmerize you to the core. The region also has a wide bay and a fishing village somewhat similar to those of Malaysia. You can enjoy an amazing experience of scuba diving on these coasts and celebrate a very organic nightlife too.

Camiguin Island

Mt.-Hibok-Hibok-from-White-BeachHave you ever been to a volcanic Island? Camiguin Island is one such volcanic island of this region and therefore it is highly recommended that you visit it no matter how. This region’s volcanoes have been unpredictable in their activities. The region receives a great rainfall and hence there is a lavish forest that covers the landscape for some beautiful sights. One thing which you would hardly disagree with is that the island is unique in its very own ways thanks to the volcanic eruptions and tectonic movements that ushered the tropical island. And yes, this island also has the 7th best diving spot in the world if you are interested.

Siargao

MAINIf anyone asks you the closest place to being a paradise on earth and you have visited Siargao at least once, it is highly unlikely that you would name any other place but Siargao. It is a small island which is known for its surfing compatibility as people from various regions come here for surfing. But if you are judging it for its surfing alone, then you are being unfair to its entirety. The place has one of the most gorgeous sightseeing locations that include peach white beaches, coral reefs and caves that are amazing, unbelievable mangrove forest, exquisite wildlife and natural waterfalls. Is it missing anything that you would have liked in your vision of paradise? I think ‘not’…
