Diverse experiences – you can have it all
Not every honeymoon destination can offer couples the chance to both relax and experience adventure, but the Philippines has it all.
Mix-and-match your experiences in the country so you can do it all: you can relax and be pampered by the beach and take part in fun activities.
The Philippines offers diverse activities, depending on what interests you. If you’re more about thrill-seeking, you can do snorkeling, kayaking, shipwreck dives, hiking, kite surfing, wakeboarding and so much more. If you want to boost your adrenaline, you can even snorkel with whale sharks!
If extreme sports are not your style, the cities and towns have so much more to offer. For history buffs, the country has an intriguing history to delve into. You can visit museums, Spanish Colonial forts, churches and take part in historical tours.
If relaxation is your goal, Philippines has many award-winning spas that offer a wide array of pampering services.
Many couples envision their honeymoon as a time of relaxation by the beach with a delicious cocktail and a book. Well, the Philippines happens to be home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Here, you can find beaches in a variety of colors: from picturesque white sand, to black, brown and even pink sand.
If you’re a surfer, you can find some of the best surf spots in the world. If you prefer to just relax and enjoy the warm weather and water, pick one of the country’s whopping 7000 islands.
From the famous El Nido, formed by dramatic limestone off the Bacuit Archipelago, to Boracay, the most famous beach resort and island, there’s no going wrong with the many beaches on this beautiful country.
When you arrange your flight booking, check for direct flights to your island of choice. If no flights are available (as most do not host an airport), you can reach a nearby coastal city by plane and from there take a boat to the island.
The Philippines provides a very convenient travel visa for most tourists, making it easy to plan your trip to the country. Most nationalities will obtain a free 30 day visa upon arrival, which is enough for most honeymoons.
If you need more time, you can extend your visa to a 59-day tourist visa by applying through the Philippines embassy or online. Additionally, you can extend your visa waiver in the Philippines.
All in all, this makes it one of the easiest countries to visit! No time-consuming embassy meetings, expensive visas or bureaucracy required.
