Beaches and Islands

Polilio Island

Polilio Island, the largest of 27 land masses that make up the Polilio Group of Islands, can be found on the northeastern side of Quezon Province. The municipality of Polillo is on the southern part of the island. The municipality of Burdeos is on the eastern portion of the island. And the municipality of Panukulan is on the northern portion of the island.

Pagudpud

Facing the West Philippine Sea, Pagudpud’s beaches are nothing short of amazing: Stretches of white sand lined with coconut trees and crystal-blue water. Located at the northernmost tip of the Luzon island, Pagudpud is a sleepy coastal town. But the locals are definitely generous with their smiles. It’s not overrun by tourists yet, but it’s getting there. So head on out — now.

Boracay

Out of all the islands in the world, Travel+Leisure Magazine chose to name Boracay as its Best Overall Island of 2012. Located in Malay, Aklan, Western Visayas, Boracay is just seven kilometers long, and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest point – a postcard-sized tropical paradise.
