Here are the 5  top beaches to visit.I am sure this top 5 beaches is easy to accomplish during summer if you want to. There are a lot of travel promotions you can avail if you plan it earlier. Remember there are 7,107 island in the Philippines, pretty darn sure you want to visit all of them. You never know, you are one of the luckiest to explore these island before you die.

5 Top Beaches you want to visit in Philippines.
I am just realistic here, I listed 5 top beaches to visit this summer or all year round, hoping you can visit 3 of them this year or more and let me know how it goes.

1. Boracay, Aklan: It's one of the popular beach destination in the country and known from other country. Traveling to Boracay could be more affordable is you stay in your budget within. From budget to luxury Boracay is one of the 5 top beaches you want to visit in Philippines because of its white sand and blue calm water.

How to go there:
You can fly either Caticlan or Kalibo, and take a ferry boat takes 10-20 minutes to Boracay.

2. El Nido, Palawan:  It's known with  pristine water, coral reefs and white sand-beaches. Its one of the most popular to visit because of its indefinable views.

How to go there:
From Manila you can fly direct to El Nido which is not popular thing to do. Most tourist fly from Manila to Puerto Princesa and take a shuttle to El Nido, Palawan and its more cheaper to do it if you are in a budget.

3. Samal Island, Davao: Davao City has a lot things to offer, and you can take a ferry boat  to go in Samal Island. Samal Island is one of the popular place to visit once you are in Davao City. The beach is white sand  and most likely popular in mangrove and coconut palms. 

How to go there:
There is a direct flight from Manila to Davao City and you can take a ferry boat to Samal Island.Most resorts offer its own ferry to take you in the resort which is included if you stay or plan for a day tour.You choose wisely.

4. Siargao Island, Surigao Del Norte: One of the most popular to visit is the Siargao Island if you are into surfing aside the white beaches, lagoons, caves. mangrove forest and seafoods. You would never get bored in this island and that's the reason its included as one of the 5 top beaches you want to consider to visit this year.

How to go there:
Siargao Island is  800 kilometers southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte. It has a land area of approximately 437 square kilometres. From Manila you can fly direct to Siargao Island or you can fly to Surigao then take a ferry to Siargao Island.

5.Mactan Island, Cebu: Its one of the most historic  place to visit. You can see more cultural activities, landmarks aside from beautiful beaches. I would say its more commercial and upscale compare to other  beaches in the list.

How to go there:
Considering Cebu is one of the big City in Philippines and has an International Airport within. To go to  Mactan Island, you can either take a taxi or a ferry boat.

Summer is one of the best time of the year to enjoy the beach.Hopefully, you can visit all the top 5 beaches this year.

Our day at Big Cypress Preserve

Time flies when you're having fun.My husband decided to stop in  Big Cypress Preserve during our vacation in Florida. There are many things to do in Big Cypress Preserve but the time goes by fast and decided to stop at the same day in Everglades National Park.

Big Cypress Preserve  was established in 1974, as America's first national preserve with 729,000 acre and no entrance fee. I saw some wildlife plants and animals.It was the most interesting trip we done last November. I'm glad we decided to take the trip in Miami and had time to visit this kind of nature  in the world that I usually  seen it in the TV or books.

November was hot and humid,I just can't imagine how it feels during summer. For me and my husband were already hot and I know I can't drag my daughter nor my husband during summer to go hiking.I think it was perfect time when we visit the Big Cypress Preserve. 

It was different when you see it and stepped your foot in the place while you just read the history in your home.I know every season looks different and I can't compare the beauty of nature in one season. All year round has its own beauty that amazed you.

Here are some photos I took:

Have you been in Big Cypress Preserve? What kind of wildlife have you  seen?
