places to visit Philippines July 2018

It’s never too late to look for the newest island escape in the Philippines.



For Filipinos, discovering places to visit in the Philippines usually fall in the months of March, April, and May. Unfortunately, months like July are not really known for traveling because: (a) the ridiculous weather restricts us from doing so, and; (b) we don’t have much public holidays a.k.a. long weekends to allow us a quick escape.

But before you throw the towel and succumb to the gloomy weather, there are still many, activities, beaches, and islands you’ve yet to discover, regardless if it’s already July! Read on and learn about some of the best places to see in the country this month.


1. Biliran Island

Thanks to Kalanggaman Island, the once sleepy town of Leyte became a popular destination to many tourists and travelers itching to find a new beach spot. But if you’re not one to join the crowd, skip Kalanggaman Island on your next trip to Leyte and head straight to Biliran.

Biliran Island is one of the smallest provinces in the country making it a great place to rent a scooter and just drive around town. It is also packed with beautiful natural resources and challenging activities to keep you busy. You can enjoy canyoneering at Sampao River or visit jaw-dropping waterfalls such the Ulan-Ulan and Tinago Falls.


2. Biri Island

Biri Island is another lesser known town perfect for those who are looking for new place to explore. Located in Northern Samar, Biri Island is a laidback town perfect for relaxation so don’t expect crazy parties at night here compared to more popular islands like El Nido and Boracay.

One of the must-do activities in Biri is visiting the island’s humongous rock formations that will leave you in awe. Make sure to stop by the rock formations of Bel-At, Macadlaw, Magasang, and Caranas. They are best visited during low tides. They also turn golden as rays hit the formations during sunsets.


3. Lakawon Island

Whenever people fly to the island of Negros, they always go straight to the city of Bacolod for its array of amazing food and the beautiful ruins of Talisay. If you’re heading to Negros soon, make Cadiz City part of your itinerary and visit Lakawon Island.

Just a couple hours’ drive north of Bacolod plus a short boat ride, you’ll reach Lakawon Island. The island is dubbed as the “Boracay of Negros Occidental” because of its powdery white sand and incredible blue waters that can challenge Boracay itself. You can swim to your heart’s content in the morning and end your day at TawHai Floating Bar, known to be one of the biggest of its kind in Asia.

Manjuyod Sandbar, located in Manjuyod, Negros Occidental, has been called “The Maldives of the Philippines” because of the clear blue waters and pristine white sand in the area. However, instead of expensive cabins on stilts, you’ll be welcomed by native nipa palm huts where you can relax for hours. Dolphin watching is also a popular activity in the sandbar overlooking the Tanon Strait.


5. Concepcion Islands

The Philippines is known for its many powdery white sand beaches, but would you believe the country also have one in pink? The Great Santa Cruz Island in Zamboanga City became known for its blush-colored sand that was featured in National Geographic’s article “21 Best Beaches in the World” [1].

The Great Santa Cruz Island gets its pink color from the red organ pipe corals debris that gets mixed with the sand in the shore.

Make the most out of your visit as only limited numbers of people are allowed per day, and overnight camping is also disallowed.
