Philippine Islands and Beaches We Are Daydreaming Of Right Now

Soaring temperatures, golden sunshine, clear blue skies, the warm breeze—there’s no denying that summer is upon us! And while we’re all cooped up at home to do our part in flattening the curve, we couldn’t help but daydream about getting our vitamin sea fix.

If this were an ordinary summer day, we’d probably be lounging by the shore, sipping a refreshing cocktail, joining island hopping tours, and taking a cool dip in the clear blue waters. But no, the world is facing an unprecedented crisis at the moment and it’s up to us to make an effort to stop the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19). Not our ideal summer vacay, if you’ll ask us. But hey, at least, there are wonderful places around the world waiting to be visited again, including the beautiful beaches of the Philippines.

From Palawan to Boracay to Cebu, let’s take a trip to some of the country’s most alluring beaches through pictures. Here we go!
