Bugsuk Island

Punta Sebaring, Bugsuk Island, Palawan

In a country with innumerable amazing beaches, Bugsuk Island is hiding one arguably even more sublime than Boracay, the picturesque and relatively pricey tourist favorite. The sand is blindingly white and incredibly fine, and the tract from the tree line to the sea is wide and empty. Watch out for long worms called wakwak that live in the sand, the locals dip them in vinegar to eat as a snack. Bugsuk Island has no electricity, no resorts, and no beach parties -- just paradise in its purest form. While some travelers camp with the permission of private landowners, others take day trips by boat from Rio Tuba.

Palawan from the Top

Palawan has become my favorite getaway. I prefer the beaches and sights of Busuanga and the Calamianes Islands. Especially fond of Culion, the former leper colony, and Coron, Calauit and Sanggat Island. Still  relatively ubtouched though the tourist boom is fast approaching.
