The Philippines is made up of 7,107 islands which mean there are numerous bodies of water within the Philippine islands and not just those surrounding the Philippine archipelago. From the top most part of Luzon down to Mindanao, several tourist spots abound. Filipina women, as well as foreigners, often frequent these beaches during the Holidays. These beaches are often featured on television. The most popular of these, where celebrities, locals, and foreigners go to, are found in Palawan, Boracay, Cebu, Siargao, and Davao. Of course, there are still wonderful beaches in the other parts of the Philippines.
Palawan is known for its pure beaches and is often referred to as the “Last Frontier of the Philippines.” There are several beach resorts in Palawan but the most famous are found at its northern tip, El Nido. Many Filipina women, single or married, flock to these beach resorts as well as those found in Boracay. Both Palawan and Boracay are located in the Visayas region. When you hear the word “Boracay”, you should only think one thing…..beaches.
They are so famous for them that even foreigners make the long journey here every year. Boracay has been very popular going back to the 60’s and 70’s. Even today, Boracay is still flooded with tourist during the holidays.
Not to be forgotten is the island of Cebu. It is an island province made up of 167 surrounding islands and islets. As a resident, I have first-hand knowledge of its beautiful shores. When visiting Cebu you can expect it to be the first thing you notice upon landing at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport. Filipina women who live locally can attest to this. Many of them flood these beaches on weekends to come together with their families. Located at the top most part of Cebu is Bantayan Island. To get there you need to ride a ferry boat from Hagnaya Port to the port in Sta. Fe in Bantayan island. A must see while visiting is the Sugar Beach Resort. And true to its name it has fine, white sands like powdered sugar.
To those who are into surfing, Siargao is the place to go. While Palawan is known as the “Philippines Last Frontier” Siargao is known as the “Surfing Capital of the Philippines.” With just a slightly calmer surf compared to those beaches outside the Philippines, they offer both challenges and fun from beginner to advanced. Those who aren’t into surfing can still enjoy its gorgeous natural surroundings. If visiting, you shouldn’t miss the Kokai Resort, where many Filipino singles go surfing and diving.
Our current President of the Republic of the Philippines, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, hails from Davao. This has brought renewed interest to this area. Do you want to go where white, gold, and pink pearls used to be cultivated? Then you should visit Pearl Farm in Davao. And while there stop over at the residence of President Rodrigo Duterte and take a selfie with his life-size image.
From all over the world, as an American man looking for Filipina wife, you can fly into Davao, Ninoy Aquino or Mactan Cebu International Airport. Take some time to explore the islands of the Philippines and learn its culture. The Philippines has lots to share. Many find that a week is not enough time to explore the country.
We hope to see you soon!
