Philippines Beaches for Backpackers

Strings of islands surround a fabulous reef system; no wonder divers love this place

The thousands of islands of the Philippines are playgrounds for nature lovers with more than 12,000 plant species,  400 species of coral on a spectacular reef system and 2,200 species fish. The main season is from December to April, but there are places to dive all year. Iconic areas include the World Heritage-listed Tubbataha, Panagatan, Malapascua and the wrecks of Subic Bay. June to October is the rainy season when divers head for parts of the country such as Cebu and Davao which are comfortable in all seasons making them drawcard destinations for meetings and conventions.

Manila is the mega capital with heaps of history, wonderful museums and galleries – and shopping.  … To learn more about the Philippines, check out their website http://itsmorefuninthephilippines.com.
