Islands to Explore This Summer

Despite the excessive heat, summer, especially here in our country, will always be a season close to our hearts. It’s a season many of us look forward to not just because it means a time of vacation for most, but the mere mention of the word already brings to mind so many wonderful, fun and exciting things, including amazing memories of summers gone by and hopeful expectations for the new one. Summer is also indeed the perfect time to get away, relax and have some fun under the sun, meaning, to enjoy the outdoors! There’s no need to worry about rain falling anytime soon, so go ahead and plan that much-needed getaway with your family or friends. If you’re thinking the beaches are going to be too crowded, well, with the 7,107 islands we have here, there’s sure to be one still waiting to be discovered and explored by you!

Speaking of unexplored beaches, here are just 3 of the many “virgin” or “crowd-less” beaches here in our country you may want to consider for your family or barkada getaway this summer:

Palaui Island, Cagayan

The unspoiled island of Palaui tucked away in the valley of Cagayan up in northern Luzon was actually chosen as the filming location for the hit American reality tv show, Survivor, back in 2013. It also holds the honor of placing 10th on CNN’s list of The World’s 100 Best Beaches that same year. If these aren’t enough to convince you of the island’s extraordinary beauty, then seeing it for yourself most definitely will.

Calayan Island, Cagayan

If you’re brave enough and willing to go through a 5 to 7-hour boat ride on a sea whose current depends on very unpredictable weather, just to be able to get to this remote yet very remarkable island, then you’re in for what may just be one of the greatest adventures of your life! Hopefully, an airport for small aircrafts to be able to land on this must-visit slice of paradise would be under construction soon, so that more people would be able to discover and appreciate all its hidden wonders, which definitely makes all that you have to go through just in order to get here, worth it.


Rivaling the famous yet over-commercialized and much-crowded shores of Boracay with its white-sand beaches and sparkling blue waters, Siquijor is indeed one of the country’s best-kept secrets when it comes to beautiful beaches. Thanks in part to its reputation for being a place of magic and sorcery, which, sadly, scares a lot of tourists away, its beaches, on a more positive note, remain pure and pristine, just like how those seeking for a truly tranquil and gorgeous hideaway like it.

Just like these beaches, Brittany also offers Alabang houses for sale that are sure to take your breath away once you discover them.
