Best Beaches In The World: Siquijor, The Philippines


With over 7000 islands on offer, any traveller to the Philippines is utterly spoilt for choice. Whatever your desert island daydream, this resplendent country is sure to deliver. From thin slices of sand surrounded by great swathes of sea, to huge landmasses covered in verdant vegetation, there’s a beachside adventure for everyone.

If you want to stay away from the crowds, there’s one particular beach highlight to bear in mind. Found on the most westerly point of Siquijor Island is a small village by the name of Paliton. Heading out of the village is a foot track, roughly a kilometre in length, which leads to a treasure of the Philippines islands: Paliton Beach.

This charming shoreline, quaint, quiet and little developed, offers the perfect beachside escape. With pristine sand and clear blue waters as far as the eye can see, Paliton beach is the getaway you’ve been dreaming of!
