5 Beach Destinations to Drive to this Summer

Driving to the Beach

When the summer season hits, people immediately think of hitting the beach for some recreation. That’s because this is the best season to relax, rejuvenate yourself, and soak up the summer sun in order to get that perfect tan you’ve always wanted.

And of course, one of the best ways to do this is to drive by car, which establishes the need for you to ensure the engine and radiator are working fine. Otherwise, you’ll suffer an engine stall, which could pretty ruin your beach road trip altogether. Before this even happens, go to a trusted radiator supplier and request for the necessary maintenance work.

Going back to the topic, drivers, here are 5 beach destinations you can go to this summer for a time of relaxation and rest.

El Nido

El Nido (Palawan)

Located in an island just below Luzon, El Nido is known for its intimate, isolate location, very fine sands, and majestic views of the vast seascape surrounding it. In fact, this location is so famous that some scenes for “The Bourne Legacy” were shot here. El Nido was also featured on “The Amazing Race”.

El Nido is also a favorite spot for divers. Underwater sea creatures such as dolphins, manta rays, whales, sea cows, and even corals can be seen around this location.

Pearl Farm

Pearl Farm (Davao)

Further down south is the Pearl Farm, found in Samal Island off the coast of Davao City. The place was called such because it was once a pearl farm, where thousands of oysters were harvested for their pink, white, and gold pearls. Today, the beach is a developed location preferred by locals and tourists.


Boracay (Aklan)

In the Visayas region lies perhaps the most well-known beach and tourist attraction in the Philippines: Boracay. It is a 4-km stretch of white sands, restaurants, stalls, hotels, resorts, and other shops that cater to the every need of visitors. Water sports such as kite boarding and windsurfing can be enjoyed here.


Siargao (Surigao del Norte)

Situated at one of the northernmost parts of the country, Siargao is an attraction spot for surfers. This is mainly because of the 9 to 12 feet high waves that are produced from this location. Siargao is also beloved because it remains unindustrialized to this day.


Panglao (Bohol)

Panglao is a location filled with gorgeous beaches that revived both interest and tourism for the Visayan island. It is renowned for its wide variety of sea creatures such as dolphins, whales, barracudas, jackfish, sea snakes, and also breathtaking coral reefs.

Aside from the beautiful seascape, Bohol also boasts wonderful landscape views, primarily because of the famous Chocolate Hills. Also, one land creature is enough to attract visitors from all over the world – the endangered Philippine tarsier, also known as the world’s smallest primate.
