Sink below the surface of the teal blue Pacific Ocean off the coast of Donsol and swim with the whale sharks – soft grey, and spotted from head to fin, these behemoths circle the stranger new to their waters, and through the bubbles hovering in front of your goggles it looks as though a shark is coming right at you…

One day of swimming with harmless whale sharks, one day filled with hiking through uninhabited territory, and another filled with snorkelling and sunbathing - the Philippines is made up of over seven thousand islands, each offering different adventures. Hit the beaches on any of the islands for a relaxing day in the sun or head to Boracay for an all night party and watch the sun rise from your spot under a palm tree.

makati island in philipines

makati city or island or place

Makati is the commercial capital of Manila - one of the cities that make up the capital. It's also known for entertainment, first class shopping malls, 5 star hotels and the number of expats who live here.

check out the "Hundred Islands" on Alaminos,Pangasinan,Philippines (the place where my parents come from) it's a series of islands scattered from the near shore of the "Barrio Lucap" to the open sea,beach tours on boats will take you on a 30min. trip or so to go to destination islands you pick to go to,various selection goes from,islands with cottages or houses to just a full day of swimming on a beach of white sand,another feature of this beauty is that on the open sea the water is warm but the water close to land is cold,which is good for people who want to select their "water temperature" so come and visit the great Philippines!!!
