    El Nido and the islands further north in Busuanga. Not overrated and good value-for-money. See them before they turn touristy. It also helps if you are at least a passable snorkeler, if not a certified SCUBA diver altogether. Bring a camera you can wet or even submerge (there are disposable ones), lots of sunblock, a wide hat, and sun glasses. Watertight bags too for things that shouldn't get wet. about 5 years ago

    I recommend Puerto Galera with nearby White beach and Sabang and the glorious islands for scuba diving. It's the closest paradise to Manila. Just take the fast ferry from Batangas. about 5 years ago

    Try Caramoan Islands in Cam Sur - this is where the Survivor TV Series took place. I have been there sometime in 2011 and the island(s) are really worth it! Nice snorkeling spots, white sand, great blue sea and such! Definitely worth checking it out! almost 5 years ago

    After travelling through the Philippines on multiple occasions I would definitely say that the Bacuit Archipelago off of El Nido does live up to the hype. Without question one of the nicest spots in South East Asia. El Nido has developed a lot over the last 2 or 3 years though..so not sure if the growth will be sustainable. Siquijor Island is a nice choice as well, but not very swimmable in comparison. If you stay on the western side of the island there are awesome sunsets http://chasingplaces.com/3-of-the-most-stunning-beach-sunsets-in-south-east-asia/ almost 5 years ago
