Its 9 days before this blog turns 1 year and today, I will share my list of 11 Most Beautiful Beaches in the Philippines. My list of Most Beautiful Beaches in the Philippines does not include the famous and the popular because I prefer the serene, the pristine, and the less touristy beaches. After all this is Philippines, the best are kept hidden from the eyes of many.
11. Patar Beach, Pangasinan
10. Mabua Pebble Beach, Surigao Del Norte
9. Tagbirayan Beach, Dinagat
8. Guisi Beach, Guimaras
7. Tondol Beach, Pangasinan
6. Nagsasa Cove, Zambales
5. Cagbalete Island, Quezon
4. Dahican Beach, Davao Oriental
3. San Victor Island, Davao Oriental
2. Cagwait Beach, Surigao Del Sur
1. Britania Islets, Surigao Del Sur
My main criteria in choosing what to include in the shortlist are: quality of sand, cleanliness of water, community involvement in its development, accessibility from the main municipal road, uniqueness and general appeal of the beach and most importantly, it must not be commercialized. Modesty aside, Britania is better than Boracay and El Nido comnibed.
