If you want to have the best beach holidays Philippines getaway, then better try out one of these beach resorts in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. Just don’t forget to bring along a bottle of sunscreen with you to avoid getting sunburned.
When it comes to beaches in the Philippines, Boracay is pretty much the very first destination that comes to mind. However, with it being shut down recently, finding a suitable alternative may feel impossible. If you want to steer clear of the crowds and want a more peaceful, quiet, and relaxing summer, you may want to try visiting the Bicol Region.
Located at the southeastern tip of Luzon, it’s composed of 6 provinces: Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, Catanduanes, Masbate and Sorsogon. Bicol is mostly known for the near-perfect cone shaped Mayon Volcano in Albay, and the whale sharks that frequently visit the waters of Donsol, Sorsogon. There are the well-known beaches in Camarines Sur and in other parts of the region as well.
Without further ado, here are some of the aforementioned top beach destinations:
Calaguas Island – Camarines Norte
Clear blue waters and powdery white sand that stretches for about a kilometer – these are just some of the things you’ll find as soon as you reach the beach of Mahabang Buhangin (translating to Long Beach in English) in Calaguas Island.
Before long, you’ll surely be drawn in to take a dip in the water even with the glaring heat of the sun. Just apply some sunscreen and you’ll be fine.
Tucked away in the eastern part of Camarines Norte, Calaguas Island offers its visitors a place where they can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Caramoan Islands — Camarines Sur
The Caramoan Islands are known to be a favorite for the reality show Survivor. You can’t really blame them, with the majestic and stunning white beaches that stretch all throughout the peninsula and rock formations just waiting for climbers to explore them. It’s no surprise that this place is always on the list of must-see places in Bicol.
Despite its exposure from Survivor, Caramoan Island remains immaculate due to it being a bit far from the mainland of Camarines Sur. Sure, there are now inns and hotels that are established to accommodate the influx of tourists; however, the peninsula remains unblemished and teeming with beauty.
Subic Beach and Tikling Island — Sorsogon
In the southernmost part of Bicol lies the town of Matnog, where you can find Subic Beach and Tikling Island. Located in Calintaan Island, you need to charter a boat first and stand bravely against giant waves before you can step onto pinkish white sands.
Once in this place, you can do some snorkeling and see the sights underwater. Plus, even though the sun is beaming high in the sky, the waters here are surprisingly cool.
If you’re up for some camping, you can bring a tent with you, but if you want to lie down on a soft, cozy bed, there are some cottages you can rent during your stay on the island. Before you go home, just make sure to visit Juag Lagoon, a privately-owned fish breeding area that’s another must-see spot.
So, there you have it. These are just some of the beaches near Naga City you can visit on your beach outings. Just make sure to bring all the things you need, plus a ton of sunscreen.
If you’re planning to travel to the beaches in Camarines Sur, be prepared for a long trip. Prepare to endure the heat especially during summer time in Philippine Beach Holidays.
