The Search for Serenity - Seven Unspoilt Beaches in the Philippines


7serene.jpg

 

Last year, the Philippines reached 38 degrees Celsius. So far it was one of the hottest temperature ever recorded in the country. It is a bad idea to stay at home. Even worse if you would get suffocated to populated areas. Good thing, the Philippines has over 33,000 kilometers of shoreline. Choose a few kilometers of it to relax and meditate. Soothe yourselves with turquoise seas, the smell of sea water brought along by the wind and have your feet touch the powdery unspoilt sand, whether it be white, gold, pink, gray, and black. You name it. 

Here are few of the remote beaches in the Philippines we have been to. 

The farther you get, the better. And the adventure to get to it is as rewarding as reaching it!

 

apo-reef-serene.jpg

Apo Island of the Apo Reef
Coordinates N12.65688 E120.41740


About 3 hours boat ride away from the shores of Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro. In the middle of Sulu Sea is the largest contiguous coral reef in the country. And right at its heart is a remote island. No electricity, no cellphone signals. The best island to greet the sunrise and bid goodbye to the sunset while a moonless night will indulge you to a luminous dark sea due to light-emitting marine organisms. An island with a lagoon, a wide powdery white beach and a limitless horizon together with the turquoise sea. This is what Apo Reef is all about!

More about this beach at The Captivating Apo Reef of Mindoro, a reef diver and beach fanatic's paradise.

Anguib Beach
Coordinates N18.51566 E122.20913


Right at the northeastern most tip of the island of Luzon is an unspoilt beach accessible via a 30-minute boat ride from San Vicente pier. Passing through shorelines of the northermost part of Santa Ana and through the mangroves and Bimapor Rocks of Cagayan. Hidden amongst the forest of the northern edge of Sierra Madre and cooled down with the shade of pine trees is the beautiful white sand beach of Anguib.

kanaway.jpg


Kanaway Beach
Coordinates N14.70314 E122.43871


Facing the limitless Pacific Ocean at the farthest island of the Polilio archipelago is a wide golden sand beach. The beach extends to about 1 kilometer from the shore during low tide exposing its natural ripples. This beach can be reached after a 6-hour "unconventional" boat ride from Real, Quezon and a 45-minute bumpy motorcycle ride to Jomalig Island's Eastern coast. The Manlanat islets are also accessible by wading through the shallow waters during low tide on this beach; where you can find solace at one of its islets and meditate the whole day.

Cape Engano Cove

Coordinates N18.57598 E122.13952

Located at the northernmost part of the secluded Palaui Island at the northeastern extremities of Luzon. Accessible via an hour and a half boat ride from Santa Ana, Cagayan's San Vicente Pier or a 4-hour trek from the mountainous area of the island. The beach rewards you with a serene view of the Calayan Channel.

Salibungot Beach
Coordinates N14.67793 E122.30729


Also located at Jomalig Island, the farthest island of the Polilio archipelago is a powdery golden sand beach that turns pink during sunset. Facing Quezon's Lamon Bay and a Pine forest at the back of the beach. This getaway is one of the most serene beach to place your hammock and relax. This beach is accessible via a 6-hour boat ride from Real, Quezon or an 8-hour boat ride from Vinzons, Camarines Norte in Bicol; and is at the edge of Lamon Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Ditaytayan Beach
Coordinates N11.74138 E120.10070


Is a solitary island in the middle of Sulu sea and is midway between Coron and El Nido Palawan. It is a wide powdery white beach with no electricity and scarce cellular phone coverage. It is accessible via a 2-hour boat ride from Coron or a 3-hour boat ride from El Nido, Palawan.

Liwan Beach
Coordinates N13.95662 E123.86540


Guinahuan Island is the farthest island of the Caramoan and is gifted with a serene beach. It is about 3 hours boat ride away from the Caramoan town where you dock at a small fishing village and hike over the hills on the other side of the island to reach Liwan Beach. Facing over the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean, this beach is one of the must-visit remote getaway in the country.

Nice looking beaches, but they all seem to be very remote and totally undeveloped. Aren't there simular beaches closer to Cebu with some development on then? Camotes is one that I'm considering going to and maybe living on.

Unless you own a boat these are just not accessable easily. Remote in the Philippines means riding a sled pulled by a carbao. Ask Paul.

These are GPS Mappers for OpenStreetMaps showing you pictures and GPS coordinates of 7 x Serene, unspoiled Beaches that they have traveled to.

The more difficult and challenging the journey to reach such serene unspoiled Beaches is part of the ADVENTURE!

The Blue Orchid Resort, at the north tip of one of the few white sandy beaches in Moalboal, is tucked away on the Southwest corner of the picturesque island of Cebu in the Philippines. This long and narrow island is located between Negros and Leyte, and is part of the Visayas, the central group of islands in the Philippine archipelago. And is one of the main Philippine tourist spots. The resort is nestled between two of the areas cherished natural treasures. To the left, the resort is just minutes walk from the kilometer long white sandy beach of 'bas dako' (Big Sand) and visibly to the right lies a stunning tidal rock formation known locally as 'mag payong' (umbrella stones). The resort offers quiet and peaceful breaks in paradise for sun and sea worshipers all over the world. Diving in moalboal offers some of the most bio-diverse in the world, mixed with local adventure tours we aim to show the full range of the wonders on offer in the Philippines.

 

 

White Beach itself @ Moalboal is relatively unspoiled/ undeveloped, which is nice, but hardly 'serene' at weekends, when lots of families visit White Beach @ weekends!

I believe Siquijor may be more to your liking. Off the beaten path, but not terribly remote. There's non-stop fastcraft service to Dumaguete and Tagbilaran, and there's fastcraft service to Cebu with one stop in Tagbilaran.

Thanks! Sounds like a great place to visit.

It's true. The ground was so wet before the area where this photo was taken, that you couldn't even stand in it. Everyone had to go out and come in this way, or they wouldn't get to that area. This was near Tagum City.
