For stunning, deserted islands and powder-fine beaches, look no further than Palawan. El Nido in the island’s north was favoured 14th place on CNN’s 2013 list of the "Best 100 Beaches in the World." Puerto Princesa, capital of Palawan, has an underground river declared one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. Pamalican Island is home to Amanpulo. In true Aman tradition, there is a fabulous spa and a stylish restaurant with fantastic views to Manamoc Island across the sea. — Lies Sol, Charter Broker
Early Spanish and modern American influences on the ethnic Asian population have left their mark, resulting in an interesting cultural mix. Mainly catholic, the people of the Philippines are well known for their cheerful disposition, a love of music and an excellent education.
From stunning, intricate rice terraces to azure seas, containing the deepest point on earth, the Mariana Trench, there is much to see and do during your Philippine yacht charter.
The Philippines boast diverse reefs, offering dive aficionados ample opportunity for spectacular scuba diving. The island of Boracay affords excellent wall diving at Yapak; starting 30-meters below the surface, the wall plunges to fathomless depths. Here you’ll spot white-tip and grey reef sharks patrolling the vicinity while manta and eagle rays sail past.
You will love Boracay’s fine white-sand beaches where translucent seas tranquilly wash the shore, with not another soul around for miles. Fun seeking, party crowds do not need to get bored though, as some beaches offer a sparkling, lively night life.
Wreck divers will want to head to Coron Bay in Palawan to dive the Morazan Maru, a Japanese freighter sunk in 1944. Now richly covered with hard and soft corals, big groupers and plenty of scorpion fishes have made home here and schools of barracudas roam around.
Palawan is also home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Tubbathaha Reef National Park and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, which — as its name suggests — runs underground and is encompassed by a limestone landscape. More spelunking can be done at Tabon Caves, which boast deep slopes and rugged cliffs with exceptional views.
Cebu with its sunny weather, pristine beaches and turquoise waters is every traveler’ tropical island dream come true. Furthermore there are luxurious resorts and spas with all the frills of good living. East of Cebu is Bohol, home to the world-famous Chocolate Hills, plateaus, crystal springs and beautiful beaches.
