Boarding Pass – Cool off in the Philippines

By August 7, 2018Boarding Pass

Welcome to a brand new blog series from Jaya! Our new Boarding Pass segment is your ticket to interesting and relevant information regarding our most popular destinations. Today we’ll show you the best Philippine beaches.


Top 5 Philippine Beaches

In a nation of 7,000 islands, it’s not hard to find a stretch of sand next to the pristine turquoise waters the Philippines is known for. Unfortunately, one of the Philippines’ most popular destinations for beaches, Boracay, is closed to tourism for the foreseeable future due to environmental rehabilitation efforts. Thankfully, we’ve got alternatives for every kind of Beach Bum out there. So the only question is: which kind of beach goer are you?


I want to relax

Visit Rainbow Beach near Cebu City. Though it’s near one of the larger cities in the country, it’s not as crowded as other well-known beaches. If your idea of the beach is sleeping under an umbrella while you drift off to the sounds of the ocean, this is the place for you.


I want somewhere off the beaten path

The beach is great, but it can get crowded. If you’re looking for that picture perfect beach to Instagram without the throngs of people accidentally photo-bombing, visit Hidden Beach on Palawan. So named because it’s nestled in between two huge rock formations, you’d miss it if you weren’t looking for it. Once you find your way inside, you’ll be treated to brilliant, sea green waters; local cuisine made fresh on site; and plenty of incredible photo opportunities!

Towering, black cliffs guard Hidden Beach. Photo ops are plentiful for those who can find the entrance!


I want to play water sports

You’ll want to visit Dumaluan Beach in the Bohol region. Every water sport imaginable is available here:

  • Wakeboarding
  • Parasailing
  • Glass bottom boat tours
  • Jet skis
  • And more!


I want outdoor adventures

You’re in luck! A visit to Alona Beach is just what you need. Located in Bohol a short distance from Dumaluan, Alona is one of the most popular spots on Panglao. It’s a great place to try your hand at diving and snorkeling, and the famous Chocolate Hills are only a few hours away by car.


Traditional boats are a common sight on Alona – one of the best Philippine beaches.


I want some family fun

In the heart of Ilocos Norte lies a fun, family-friendly beach known as Blue Lagoon. You’ll find a number of resorts and restaurants close at hand – perfect for treating the whole family to a tropical getaway!
