8 Photos of Philippine Beaches to Feast Your Eyes On

8 Photos of Philippine Beaches to Feast Your Eyes On

Whenever we talk about eye candy, the first thing that pops to mind would be a hot guy or a hot girl, and how we’d ogle the aforementioned hot person until they walk up and introduce themselves to us, or slap us with a restraining order. Sure, they’re awesome to look at, but hot people tend to cause eyestrain, and that’s not what we’re looking at here.

The following Philippine beaches are awesomely pleasing and relaxing to the eyes. Imagine yourself there right now, calmly enjoying the water and the sights, and we’re sure you’d agree with us how great it is to see these picturesque beaches up close and personal—with the aforementioned hot person in tow.

Calaguas

Calaguas
It takes a two-hour boat ride (through the Pacific Ocean, no less) to go to Calaguas from Vinzons, Camarines Norte but this photo shows how this hidden Bicolano paradise is worth the trip.

Anawangin

Anawangin
Anawangin Cove in San Antonio, Zambales is a popular beach for beach bums. It’s a crescent-shaped white sand cove with pristine blue waters and deep green pine trees on its banks. The tricky part is that there’s no road to take you here from the town and you have to take a boat all the way from Pundaquit.

Now, take a deep breath. Get ready to get back to work.
