Enjoy a romantic getaway in the Philippines
Start off your Philippines couples' retreat in Boracay, a small island famous for its gorgeous white sand beaches and beautifully relaxed atmosphere. It's been named one of the best islands in the world. Find peace on an deserted stretch of sand or enjoy dancing the night away at Boracay's famous bars and clubs. There's nothing quite like Boracay's island vibe, and you'll lose yourself in the romantic serenity every moment of your honeymoon or romantic getaway.
Hire a kayak and head out for a romantic paddle on calm waters, sail out into the sunset or enjoy a beachside couples' massage, and that's just for starters. You can also while away plenty of time simply basking in the sun and watching the comings and goings of local villagers, fishermen and the lapping shores.
Head to the province of Palawan for more breathtaking crystal-clear ocean, fantastic boating opportunities and plenty more luxury and relaxation. You won't be disappointed by the accommodation options on offer, with all manner of lavish resorts ready to cater to your every desire and more. A luxury stay during your romantic honeymoon or getaway for two is just what you need!
If you're craving the ultimate getaway, head to one of the Philippines' more remote islands, where you can expect the ultimate in privacy and tranquillity. Plus, there's plenty of romantically rugged and untouched tropical scenery to enjoy - you'll certainly want to stay a while. Enjoy a day of soaking up some rays with only the sound of the water and rustling palms surrounding you, or savour a romantic evening picnic as the bright golden sun goes down.
For a spot of romantic city sophistication, you can't go past the capital Manila. Here you can shop til you drop and dine until you just can't take another bite. Try favourite dishes such as roasted pork, grilled chicken and plenty of fish, all prepared with local herbs, spices, flavours and flair. Share some tasty Filipino desserts too, such as cassava cake by romantic candlelight.
Make your way to the walled Intramuros district to take in some history and the stunning stone architecture leftover from the Spanish colonial period. Check out the city's commercial centre Makati, with modern shops, eateries and entertainment. Get lost in streets and lanes, discovering hidden marketplaces and local food favourites with your sweetheart. What a romantic way to spend some time with each other!
