Exploring Philippines

Things to do

Diving
At the apex of the Coral Triangle, the Philippines is home to some of the most diverse marine life on Earth. Diving is incredible year-round with different areas ideal for macro life, wrecks, and big pelagic life. Ask us for suggestions!
Golfing
With courses in Boracay, Cebu, Luzon, and Davao, a round or two of golf can easily be added into a trip to the Philippines.
Surfing
Given the miles of coastline, a few great surf spots are inevitable in the Philippines. For advanced surfers, Siargao, ranked one of the top 10 surf sites in the world, is a must-visit destination. It's at its best October-April. Beginners can try their hand in Zambales where April-September sees the most consistent swell.
Island Hopping
From Panglao, Puerto Princesa, El Nido, Coron, Boracay, and Dumaguete, a day of island hopping is a highlight. See uninhabited islands with pristine beaches, snorkel and swim in clear water, and tuck into a freshly cooked lunch of grilled fish and other local fare.
Volcano Trekking
Head up Taal, south of Manila, on foot or horseback or hike up Pinatubo to the north. For those wanting a longer trek, the symmetrical Mount Mayon near Legazpi requires more than one day to summit and descend.
Paraw Sailing
Sail around the island of Boracay on a traditional Paraw, a double outrigger sail boat. It only takes a few hours, making for a lovely sunset cruise.
Kitesurfing
November to March brings favorable conditions for kitesurfing near El Nido and Coron, in Boracay and Siargao. Instruction is available in each place for those looking to learn or improve their skills.
Caving
In addition to the caves of Sagada with their unique coffins and the Puerto Princesa subterranean river, there are caves throughout the Philippines. Some can be explored on foot and others require a canoe, kayak, or even a snorkel and fins.
Manila
The bustling capital city is home to historic Intramuros and Rizal Park. Let us arrange a bicycle tour of the walled city so you can explore the narrow streets and learn about the nation's colonial past. More
Banaue
Ancient rice terraces in Batad, coffins mounted on a cliff in Sagada, the Cordillera is home to some of the most unique and fascinating bits of the Philippines. More
Vigan
Some of the best preserved Spanish colonial architecture in the world can be found in Vigan. Wander the cobbled streets, sample the Spanish-influenced cuisine, and relax in one of the city's historic boutique hotels. More
Boracay
Sink your toes into the white sands of Boracay. Grab a cocktail, take it easy, and watch the clear blue water lap against the shore. When night falls, join the parties of District Two or slip away to romantic Diniwid beach. More
Bohol
Chocolate hills, tiny tarsiers, Boholano art, beautiful beaches, and some lovely snorkeling and diving make Bohol one of our favorite parts of the Philippines. The gorgeous boutique resorts don't hurt, either! More
Negros Oriental
The island of Negros is home to world-class diving off the coast of Dauin and on neighboring Apo Island. Waterfalls and adventure are just a day trip away from the university town of Dumaguete. On neighboring Siquijor settle in to the tranquility of an island known for sorcery and healing powers. More
Negros Occidental
On the west coast of Negros you'll find Bacolod, the city of smiles. Sugar plantations in the area host historic mansions and in October, the streets come alive with the annual MassKara festival. More
Puerto Princesa
The gateway to Palawan, Puerto Princesa sits near one of the longest subterranean rivers in the world. Let us arrange a stay for you at a beachside hotel with mountain views just a short boat ride away. More
El Nido
When people refer to Palawan as the most beautiful island in the world, images of El Nido come to mind. Limestone cliffs jut from aquamarine water, lush jungle fills the interior, and the coasts are lined with dazzling beaches. Some of the finest resorts in the country dot the islands around this northern bit of Palawan. More
Coron
For divers, the WWII shipwrecks of Coron are one of the highlights of the Philippines. Natural hot springs, clear blue lakes, isolated beaches, and a rather surprising game reserve and wildlife sanctuary make Coron a fun destination for divers and landlubbers alike. More
Puerto Galera
Fast drift dives and schools of big fish await experienced divers in Puerto Galera while shallow macro dives make for excellent underwater photography, relaxing night dives, and the perfect place to learn or improve your dive skills. More
