3. Bicol Region
Didn’t think this would be great for summer? Well think again. In Bicol there are different activities that can be done such as diving, rock climbing, snorkeling, swimming, ATV etc. There aren’t any resorts here so if camping is your thing, then try going here. Recommended places to stay in Legazpi City.


“Let’s Go to the Beach Beach”
There are a lot of beaches in the previous places mentioned but here are the other beaches you should check out. ( Other than Boracay ;) )

4. Siquijor
Sorcery and witchcraft is not the reason why this place is getting so much attention, but it is because of all the dazzling and elegant beaches here. Paliton, Candanay Sur, Salagdoon, Dumanhog are just SOME of the MANY beaches that you can go to in Siquijor. Recommended resorts in Siquijor.
