The Longest Beaches in the Philippines, your guide to the best beaches in the country.

(Boracay, by: Nahoma Beniga Maentz)

You've probably heard that the Philippines have one of the most beautiful islands and beaches in the world.

Yes it is true, and for many reasons!

Lets take a look at some of them,

Here are some of the longest beaches in the Philippines, and 2 of them in Palawan.

Long Beach Palawan

At precisely 14.7 KM-long, it is said to be three times longer than Boracay's famous White Beach. San Vicente's Long Beach offers a laid-back vibe, ideal for travelers who are interested in sightseeing, lounging at the beach for hours, and island-hopping.

Aside from Long Beach, the main highlight of San Vicente, it is a peaceful fishing village that offers more tourist spots. It is blessed with untouched lush forests, picturesque islands, majestic waterfalls, enchanting mangroves, and diverse flora and fauna.

San Vicente is also home to Port Barton, another top Palawan destination. It attracts backpackers who seek a relaxed rural atmosphere with a similar vibe to El Nido.

Port Barton in Palawan is mistaken usually as a separate or different town from San Vicente, but it's a part of it. You can explore the Long Beach and other land tourist spots with Port Barton as a side trip or vice versa.

Nacpan Beach

Nacpan Beach is a four-kilometer strip of cream-colored sand and coconut trees with crystal clear turquoise water. It is located 17th kilometers north of El Nido town proper in Palawan. This powdery paradise was one of the secret getaways for some tourists until its beauty was discovered by many and became one of the most sought after destinations in El Nido.

In 2016, it was voted as the world’s 10th best beach by users of travel rating website Trip Advisor.

Boracay White Beach

White Beach, the main tourism beach, is about four kilometers long and is lined with resorts, hotels, lodging houses, restaurants, and other tourism-related businesses.

In the central portion, for about two kilometers, there is a footpath known as the Beachfront Path separating the beach itself from the establishments located along it. North and south of the Beachfront Path, beachfront establishments do literally front along the beach itself.

Dahican, Mati

CITY, Davao Oriental—Children as young as 7 ride wooden boards and glide adroitly over foot-high swells that break against the long stretch of white sand beach. It’s a sight that has turned the coastal village of Dahican here into a prime surfing destination in southern Mindanao, and a skim capital of the Philippines and home to one of Skim Board World Champion.

The crescent-shaped beach some 7 kilometers long has become a playground for intrepid sun-scorched sons of fisherfolk out to conquer the wind-whipped waves foaming at the blue Mayo Bay.

Located on the eastern coast of Davao Oriental province facing the Pacific Ocean, Dahican’s powerful waves and high winds make it ideal for surfers and skimboarders most of the year.

Dahican’s fine white sand draws thousands of local and foreign tourists year round, said Jose Moring of the Mati city environment and natural resources office.
