Explore Natural Wonders, The Chocolate Hills of Bohol are another of the Philippines’ natural wonders. Of uniform shape and rising from 40 to 120 meters, the 1268 hills look like a giant array of pregnant women. Others claim they are the solidified teardrops of a lovelorn giant. El Nido Marine Reserve occupies 96,000 hectares and boasts diverse ecosystems such as rainforest, mangroves, white sand beaches, coral reefs, and limestone cliffs. It is now one of the country’s premier tourist destination.

There is also a boat taking you to Tagbilaran which is just one and half hour ride to save some money. The boat should be the fastest kind because the regular kind of boat usually takes four hours of travel. After arriving in Tagbilaran Doljo beach is just twenty minutes away. The best way to save money however is to take a regular ferry ride from Cebu which would go to Tubigon and then after getting there you should take the bus going to Doljo beach. The cost of an airplane ride to Tagbilaran is usually priced at two thousand pesos up to three thousand pesos.

Doljo beach is a beach located on the island of Panglao. This island is on the north western side of Bohol. This beach is three kilometers wide and it is not so much explored and developed yet. The sand is white and this beach slopes in a gentle way to the part of the sea that is deep. Doljo beach is also filled with many coconut trees which makes it all more appealing. The beach is also known for the beautiful and unique seashells. There is a lot of marine creatures that can be explored under the clear Doljo beach waters. There are local folks who have set up their own business by renting out chairs for those having a day trip like picnickers.

In 1991 the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo was the most destructive volcanic event of the 20th century. Today, surrounded by a vast expanse of lahar-filled valleys and boulders the size of cars, Mount Pinatubo offers a breathtaking view of a hidden lake inside its crater — an enchanting reward for intrepid explorers and trekkers. Taal Volcano is the smallest active volcano in the world. You will find it about 70km south of Manila on “volcano island” inside a lake called Taal Lake. This is a popular trekking destination and, compared with other mountains, the climb is relatively easy. The view from the top is awe-inspiring. Mayon Volcano is the most active volcano in the Philippines, having erupted over 47 times in the past 400 years. It is also considered to be the world’s most perfectly formed volcano for its symmetrical cone. It reaches 2,460 meters and is the central feature of the Albay Province, about 300km southeast of Manila.

All the other beaches along the coastline of Davao Oriental. It is free to swim and comb the beach for shells, pebbles, stories from children that would be hovering nearby, watching the sun setting or rising, or just feeling the cool salty breeze of the wind. These are unsophisticated beaches away from the maddening party scenes in Boracay and other high-end resorts. No pretensions here. Just be on your shirt, shorts and slippers and you can already relax and enjoy your vacation. I recommend Beaches In The Philippines for the best vacation place.
