All-Time Top 12 Most Visited Destinations in the Philippines
The top favorite and most popular spots in the Philippines enlist in this article despite the fact that there are many places to visit there. When visiting the Philippines, learn more and put these tourist destinations on your agenda.
The Philippines’ most northern province, Batanes, is remote and secluded. The three largest islands—Sabtang, Batan, and Itbayat—are the only ones in this 10-island archipelago that are inhabited. While Batan is further divided into the municipalities of Basco, Ivana, Uyugan, and Mahatao, Sabtang and Itbayat have their own municipalities.
One of those places that effortlessly captivates is Batanes. Although it is physically magnificent and culturally rich, what distinguishes it is its quiet seclusion. You can’t help but pause, lose yourself in thinking, and find calm even for a few periods when you’re in Batanes.
The Ilocandia is home to everything from sand dunes to beaches to historical landmarks. Starting in Vigan, you can travel to Pagudpud via Bangui, Bantay, Batac, Paoay, Laoag, and Pagudpud. You will have a ton of memories to live up to because of this.
One of the most remote areas of Luzon is where Cagayan lies. After traveling for a long time, you will be welcomed upon arrival with a mixture of joy and triumph. Cagayan, though, awards those who go above and beyond.
Palaui Island is one of the most beautiful places to visit in this area. The Cape Engao Lighthouse’s summit is where you may take in the picture-perfect panorama. Anguib Beach, known as the “Boracay of the North” for its glistening white sand and turquoise waters, is another must-see location. In addition to swimming, you can lay in one of the hammocks dotted across the area while being soothed by the soft wind.
Don’t leave the province without visiting the seven-chamber limestone cave, Callao Cave, which has a working chapel inside. A new species of pygmy archaic human, now known as Homo luzonensis, was also found there; it lived there about 50,000 years ago.
Sagada, a fifth-class municipality in the Mountain Province, had only 11,000 inhabitants as of 2015. Imagine it as a tiny, barely-developed community located in the Cordillera. It boasts an all-year-round cool climate that is far colder than Baguio, which draws domestic travelers.
In addition to being cooler, it has a lot to offer travelers, history fans, and adventurers alike. The hanging coffins, waterfalls, and cave system are its most famous features. The good news is that both the local administration and the citizens have implemented environmental restrictions.
The island of Palawan is a perpetual gift. Every crevice of Coron Island is brimming with natural beauty and cultural value, from the island’s lakes and lagoons to the nearby beaches, shipwreck dive sites, coral gardens, and saltwater hot springs. Heck, there’s even a neighboring African safari.
El Nido consistently ranks among the greatest beach locations in the world thanks to its abundance of marine life and spectacular seascapes. One of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the underground river in Puerto Princesa, is located there. Even for first-timers, senior citizens, and young children, this region’s tourism industry is well-organized and a great place to visit.
Batangas is much more than just a province close to Manila. It is a fortunate country. It is home to many different types of sceneries, including beaches, a lake, diving spots, rivers, mountains, and a volcano. In their lengthy histories, these locations have also fostered communities, from the pre-Spanish villages to the expansion of the province’s numerous metropolitan centers.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Batangas has a rich cultural past and has given birth to some of the most important national heroes in the country, whose contributions and legacies cannot be overstated. The coastlines of Nasugbu, Calatagan, Tingloy, and San Juan are among the most popular with visitors.
Few places could compare to Northern Samar when compared to first impressions. Luminous grains of white, black, and brown cover the golden expanse of Onay Beach. On the other end of the province, though, is Biri Island, which is the major draw. It is nearly unaltered. It has massive granite formations and breathtaking vistas.
No matter where you go, whether you stay in Cebu City, go scuba diving off the northern islands, or hike up its southern hills, Cebu is the perfect adventure travel destination. The most significant historical sites are located close to one another in the city center. And while using public transportation, such as jeepney routes, can be challenging at first, you’ll quickly pick it up. Tourists are welcome in Cebu as a whole. Most locals are friendly and helpful.
One of Cebu’s favorite places is Bantayan Island. What was once a peaceful fishing community is now reaping the benefits of tourism as travelers seek out more relaxed alternatives to Boracay. Bantayan is included in Cebu’s all-inclusive vacation packages, yet backpackers continue to favor it for its beauty and serene atmosphere.
Negros Island is divided into two provinces: Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, both of which are worthwhile travel destinations. It’s a place where the two Fs—food and festivities—are most celebrated. However, the enjoyment (oh, another F) doesn’t end there. White sand beaches and historic settlements dot the coastline. Not to add that I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the friendliest people in the world there, making every journey an unforgettable one.
It’s simple to fill a week with activities. You will never run out of things to check off, from eating your way through Bacolod to swimming with turtles on Apo Island. However, there is one place that everyone longs to visit: Danjugan Island. Danjugan Island, which is part of the municipality of Cauayan, is a marine reserve that is overseen by the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc (PPRCFI), which acquired it from the threat of extinction in 1994.
72 species of birds, including sea eagles and Tabon scrub owls, 10 species of bats, 579 kinds of fish, and 244 types of coral call this five-lagoon island home. The nicest aspect is that you may view these priceless living treasures without being a scuba diver. Many of them are visible even when only snorkeling.
Presently, Siargao is the top tourist destination in the Philippines. The island, a paradise for surfers, wasn’t widely known to non-surfers until news of its other world-class attractions spread.
The main island can be explored to discover the delights hidden inside its craggy nooks and lush surroundings, such as the coconut-lined roadways, the Instagrammable Maasin River, and the Magpupungko rock pools. Alternatively, you can take a short boat excursion to Guyam Island, Daku Island, and Naked Island to go island hopping.
From Siargao, Sohoton Cove is also conveniently accessible. It is a part of the Bucas Grande Islands, a complex system of gorgeous karst hills and islets that are home to lively lagoons, beaches, and even caves. Some lagoons’ crystal-clear water is home to stingless jellyfish. The season for jellyfish starts in March but peaks in July and August.
One of the most underappreciated travel spots in the nation is the SOCCSKSARGEN region. From Gumasa Beach in Sarangani to Lake Sebu and Lake Holon in South Cotabato to the little-known eco-parks in Sultan Kudarat, a journey across the area will take you. The two main attractions are Mt. Melibingoy and South Cotabato. Mt. Melibingoy dominates the town with its 1,750-meter-high top. It is a dormant stratovolcano that is home to Lake Holon, a crater lake that was created as a result of an eruption in 1641. Additionally, it has fostered endemic, wild plants and animals.
Ever seen a beach that is pink? Pink, indeed! Just to set realistic expectations, it isn’t a vivid pink. It appears to be a typical white beach from a distance, but as you go closer, the pink light is increasingly noticeable. Red organ-pipe corals (Tubipora musica) that have been crushed and washed to the shore are the pink particles that are edging Sta. Cruz Grande Island (Great Sta. Cruz Island). And indeed, the neighboring vivid reef contains these brilliant red corals as well.
However, the island of Sta. Cruz Grande is beyond simply its pastel shore. A lagoon that is teeming with wildlife is also nestled within it. You may rent a boat, go on a guided tour of the lagoon, and get up close and personal with some of the amazing animals that live there, such as the (stingless!) upside-down jellyfish. A vinta can also be rowed.
