as mentioned in a previous blog, our tourism is up 10 % from the same time previous year and the government is aware of what must be done not only to sustain this “growth” but to reach its target of  10 million tourists by 2016.  it has been emphasized time and time again that “INFRASTRUCTURE”  is the most important aspect that must be addressed, in comparison to other variables that are also vital to our tourism growth.

10. Palaui Island, Cagayan Valley, Philippines

Glorious white sands meet volcanic rocks and blue-green waters topside, while coral gardens and a rich marine reserve meet divers under the surface. Palaui is all about raw beauty. Treks to get there require battling thorny grass, muddy ground and a mangrove forest.

14. El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

El Nido is the gateway to adventure, “the last frontier” of the Philippines, as it has been dubbed. Powder-fine beaches and gin-clear waters complement the stunning views of karst limestone formations, empty lagoons, marble cliffs, prehistoric caves and waterfalls.

Highlight: Surrounding waters contain more than 50 species of coral and attract whales, whale sharks, sea cows, manta rays, dolphins and endangered turtles.

84. Puka Beach, Boracay, Philippines

84. Puka Beach, Boracay, Philippines

Making a respectable claim to its “tropical paradise” reputation, Boracay has powdery beaches, water sports and spas. Puka Beach is named for its Puka shells, meaning the sand here is coarse.

Highlight: Puka is the second-longest beach on Boracay and relatively empty most times, with no resorts and a limited number of restaurants.
