Our summers are now starting to get hotter and hotter each year. It’s even more different this 2020 because everyone’s staying at home. While most of us have some summer trips canceled, it’s not really prohibited to keep on looking for great beaches to visit. We’re still dreaming of those cold waves and sun-kissed feelings! Good thing is that we will never run out of great beaches here in the Philippines. In fact, there’s a long list and that makes our country one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the world.
If you’ve ever been to the Philippines before, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s not just about the beaches, but it’s guaranteed that the experience will make you come back. Whether you’re from here or from other countries, you’ll love the view, the wildlife, the people, and of course… the food! So let’s now skip the introductions and get right down to the beaches.
1. Great Santa Cruz Island, Zamboanga City
What better way to kick off the list than with the most unique colored beach! Located in the country’s “City of Flowers” or Zamboanga City, the place boasts its cotton candy-colored beach. The beach gets its pink colors from the pulverized red organ pipe coral from eons of surf erosion mixed with the white sand.

3. Nagsasa Cove, Zambales
This scenic beach features the whole vacation experience! If you choose to visit this place, then you’ll love its hiking trails, waterfalls, and campsites. This one is close to the famous Anawangin Cove. However, if you want a more laidback experience and with fewer tourists, this is the perfect place to visit.
