This colourful country, with lush tropical rainforests and a gorgeous coastline, offers a warm and friendly welcome to this gem of the South China Sea.
The busy capital, Manila, is the first stop for many visitors en route to the picturesque rice terraces or stunning beaches. Explore the bustling markets and malls before a meal at one of Makati’s upmarket restaurants.
For many it's the Philippines' beaches that are the main draw and who can blame them with mile upon mile of soft white sands, aquamarine waters and an island for every taste.
Boracay is a hugely popular choice. Just an hour’s flight from Manila, this small island boasts soft powdery beaches, an array of dining options and a buzzing nightlife scene. Take a luxury catamaran cruise to truly experience this beautiful island.
With direct flights from several South East Asian cities, a Cebu beach holiday makes for a perfect choice. Soak up the sun, sample the local cuisine or visit the nearby island of Bohol, home to the tiny Tarsier monkey. With so many options available, you can either relax by the pool or explore this diverse region.
Mactan Island, just off the coast of Cebu, offers some of the best watersports on offer in the archipelago. Being a coral island, the rich blue surrounding waters are filled with astonishing marine life and nearby islands offer plenty of opportunities back on dry land. From the tiny Tarsier monkeys & otherworldly landscapes of the chocolate hills on Bohol, to the bustling markets & 16th Century churches on Cebu, you will be surrounded by opportunities to explore, should you want to leave your powdery white beach, of course.
