Spending quality alone time with your partner away from work is one of the most essential things in a relationship. And when you two travel, you get to experience new things and even get to see each other in a different light. But while grand, foreign destinations and big cities are exciting, there's also a very romantic side to traveling the islands of the Philippines together.


Here are some of the best local destinations where you and your beau can create more amazing milestones as a couple:

1. Coron, Palawan

This tropical paradise certainly won’t disappoint you, it’s clear and majestic waters is enough to relax you and your man. Plus, if you’re up for a quick dip, you can check out Kayangan Lake which was dubbed as the cleanest lake in Asia.

2. Panglao Island, Bohol

Adventurous couples should visit this stunning island at least once as the underwater scene is exceptionally marvelous. They’re known for their stunning coral reefs and dive spots you and your man can try – you could even get certified together!

3. Mapawa Nature Park, Cagayan de Oro

Be in awe of the wonders of nature with Mapawa Nature Park. It’s a 2,500 hectare property that’s 30 minutes away from the city. You can go hiking, try their zip line, and even rappel from a waterfall. And since you’re in Cagayan de Oro, maybe you’d like to try their white river rafting.

4. Baguio City

If you’re not the type of couple to bask under the sun during the summer, then probably you’d prefer to cozy up with your boyfriend in front of a warm fireplace. Baguio offers a vast array of cottages and hotels that have that kind of setting – and don’t forget the hot chocolate milk!

Couples who love nature will definitely enjoy going on a trip up north to Batanes. The locals' livestock roam around freely and the endless greenery from uphill down to the valleys is something really worth seeing. Try going to Marlboro Hills; it’s the perfect spot to view the vastness of the ocean.
