You can also conquer your fear of heights and get the adrenaline pumping in your system as you go cliff diving. Similarly, you can also go exploring local caves in the area.

4. Reggae Vibes De Isla Romblon, Romblon

This beachfront Filipino native kubo is in Brgy. Agpanabat in the marble capital of the Philippines, Romblon. You can spend the day chasing waterfalls, snorkeling, exploring the nearby turtle sanctuary, swimming, and diving.
For couples who are celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions, their staff can also set a romantic candlelight dinner for two.

3. Floral Island Resort, El Nido, Palawan

This is an exclusive resort located in the middle of Talacanen Island. Featuring six villas, a 24-hour restaurant, a chill-out place, and an overlooking massage hut.
Guests can use the resort’s kayaks, paddle boat, pedal boat and snorkeling set for free. Not to mention that throughout the year and depending on the season, you can help save the environment by helping plant corals in the area!

2. Sundang Island, Cavinti

 

Sundang is a small sized island that serves as a perfect for a weekend getaway. A beautiful remote island found within a peaceful lake of the Sierra Madre mountains, it’s approximately a three-hour drive from Manila and reachable by a ten-minute boat ride from the mainland.
While guests have the option to cook their meals in the house’s equipped kitchen, they could also go boating, swim on the lake, stargaze, and bike on the well-paved trails. Additionally, there is a ‘dap-ay’ where a bonfire can be set up at night and is perfect to share stories over a beer or two with friends.

1. Brother Island, Palawan

Brother Island is the only exclusive private island in El Nido, Palawan. You can choose between seven bedrooms that can accommodate a total of 12 guests in this house.

Aside from the perfect white beach and soft powdery sand, it also has a virgin jungle, bamboo forest, and fantastic snorkeling sites. They offer services such as a refreshing beach massage, and island hopping.

Finally, the island’s in-house restaurant is where guests can enjoy an all-Filipino cuisine menu. They serve an abundance of fresh seafood thanks to the daily catch brought in by local fishermen.
