The Philippines is a paradise on its own. It’s filled with natural resources and rich in culture and arts. Being an archipelago, our country has a lot of beaches. People from all around the world fly to the Philippines just to experience what’s readily available for us locals.

Since summer is fast approaching and there are a couple of long weekends on the way, why not plan out a beach trip? With your busy schedule and routinary job, you need a break! Unwind on the seaside and feel the ocean breeze.

Here are ten local beaches that you can enjoy. Best part of it all? It’s a few hours away from the Metro!
