After months (or even years!) of meticulous preparation for your big day, wouldn't be a nice reward to spend a week in a deluxe villa with a view of the turquoise sea, all to yourselves? It's probably one of the things that a couple really looks forward to, not just to take a rest from all of the happenings, but to get to spend some time with his/her lifetime partner.
Here's a list of the best honeymoon destinations in the Philippines to help you decide:
Tucked in the heart of the Visayas region is Bohol, a tropical getaway where the Chocolate Hills could be found and where the tarsiers hail from. Bohol has that laid back feel, perfect for couples seeking both nature and privacy. Many accommodations in Panglao Island offer luxurious amenities with stunning views of the sea, or even infinity pools right outside the rooms. In Bohol is also Alona Beach, an unspoiled stretch of white sand in Panglao Island which is comparable to that of Boracay.
When in Siargao, you'll literally and figuratively feel like on Cloud 9 as aside from experiencing its well-known surfing spot, it also boasts a really serene atmosphere because it isn't that too crowded yet, unlike the other tourist spots in the country. Get to experience riding with the waves as your first water activity together, or maybe have your "You jump, I jump" moment at the Sugba Lagoon, a site in between mangroves and rock formations in Del Carmen.
In a place where every corner is breathtakingly beautiful, you sure wouldn't run out of love in Batanes. Have that escape before you face your married life duties as you walk through its quiet spots and serene landscapes such as that of the Vayang Rolling Hills, Sabtang Island, and the Nakabuang Arch.
From underground rivers, hidden lagoons, and scuba diving sites to sophisticated villas and beachfront bars, Palawan is the paradise that you deserve to experience before you face the real world as a married couple. Whether you choose to stay in Coron, Puerto Princesa, or El Nido, all three makes Palawan one of the best destinations for honeymooners in the Philippines because of the endless adventures you could experience here.
If you are that chill couple who's into staycations and R&Rs, Tagaytay's the place for you. With the vibes same as Baguio CIty, experience foggy mornings that'll make you feel like teenagers in love as you cuddle and do small talk over hot chocolate. Accommodations here are affordable which may come convenient if you think you've spent so much on your wedding, but still deserve a memorable honeymoon.
Now it's up to you to decide on where that most-awaited honeymoon should take place. No matter where you go, be sure to have fun and enjoy your moments together!
