Walk in Paradise at Kalanggaman Sandbar, Leyte: Photo of the Day

There are many amazing ways to look at the gorgeous Kalanggaman Island, or Kalanggaman sandbar, off the coast of Palompon, Leyte (can also be accessed through Cebu) — aerial shot, underwater shot, jump shot, and just about any angle you can imagine. Whatever the angle is, we can bet our traveling foot that the photograph will turn out beautiful, like this photo by Bert Al Fronte Millendez (check his Instagram acount, @alfro20, for more photos). Powder-white sand, clear waters, blue sky, warm tropical sun. It takes around an hour of boat ride to this small sandbar, so there’s a feeling of seclusion (except that you’ll most likely be joined by other tourists also seeking to get a taste of this island-paradise). We’ve been planning to visit this sandbar last year, but the travel gods have other plans for us. Most likely this year. Most likely we’ll encounter you there? See you in paradise.

Photo of the Day: The Air Up in Boracay

It’s difficult not to fall in love with Boracay. The main draw is the beach, of course, coupled with an endless array of attractions, including cliff jumping, the mermaid academy, and the 24/7 party atmosphere. The options are endless. There are activities to satisfy the party animals, the outdoors buff, the spa addicts, beach bums, energetic kids; practically everyone, even those who wish to do soul searching. And there’s parasailing. We’d go out on a limb and say that you haven’t been to Boracay if you haven’t done parasailing. We tried to describe how it feels to float high above the white-sand paradise called Boracay, but it seems a photograph is better suited to relay the emotions, like this photo by Charmilyn Mamaradlo (miaischarm3718).

Photo of the Day: Naked Island

The “naked” in Naked Island, located in Siargao, does not refer to the people in it, but to the fact that there’s practically nothing on it. We can ask RMADJ (loneadventureseeker), who says that she’s an all-around worker, adventure seeker, lone traveler, fashion enthusiast, photography lover, aspiring astronaut and, most important of all, a mermaid. She chose to arrive fully clothed on the Naked Island but still came out with this cool photo — lovely pose, modest smile, and that beautiful Naked Island. When you choose to get here, it’s not a bad idea to try out surfing — Siargao, after all, is a surfing paradise in the Philippines. Here’s the photo (click photo to enlarge): Continue reading Photo of the Day: Naked Island

The 24/7 Beach Paradise: Boracay, Philippines

There’s only one thing better that being one of the world’s best beaches like Boracay — a 24/7 beach paradise. Just like, you guessed it, Boracay! (You might be interested to know that this clip is now part of the Visit the Philippines 2015 campaign of the Department of Tourism). Watch and share this short video below:: Continue reading The 24/7 Beach Paradise: Boracay, Philippines

Mantigue Island (Magsaysay Island) of Camiguin

On travel brochures and on maps we’ve seen in Camiguin, this white beach in Camiguin is called Magsaysay Island. After visiting the island, or when talking with residents and the boatmen, we got to know this white beach as Mantigue Island. This pricked our curiosity, more than the the puzzle of having a white island beside a black, volcanic island. Continue reading Mantigue Island (Magsaysay Island) of Camiguin
