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!
5. Batanes Islands, Batanes
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.
6. Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte
Known as the surfing capital of the Philippines, this is the best place to learn something you and your partner have never done before – like riding the renowned surfing wave, Cloud 9.
7. Vigan, Ilocos Sur
When you’re in Vigan, one street you shouldn’t miss visiting is Calle Crisologo. It’s a strip of Spanish Colonial period houses and infrastructure that’ll take you back to the 16th century and leave you in awe and admiration. Other than that, you can indulge in a guilt-free food trip with their famous Vigan longganisa and empanda Ilocos.
8. Taal Volcano, Tagaytay
Looking for a day trip adventure? Then Tagaytay is the way to go! Although it’s just a few hours away from Manila, there are still a lot of activities you can enjoy like trekking, horseback riding, and eating their famous hot bulalo and tawilis. Stop by Nuvali and get your workout on!
9. Kalanggaman Island, Leyte
Immerse yourself in the tranquility and relaxation Kalanggaman’s white sand bar can give you. It has crystal clear waters and a stunning view of the sunset; perfect for romantic and quiet walks with your beau.
10. Sagada, Mountain Province
This place isn’t just for the brokenhearted, it can also be a sweet spot for couples in love. Get lost in the villages and interact with the locals. They have those famous “Saturday Markets” where crops are cheap and more importantly, fresh. Aside from that, you can unleash your adventurous side by hiking, biking, or exploring their caves.
