Two of the secret beaches of the Philippines found in Romblon and Batanes, were uncovered in a recent travel feature by TripZilla magazine about Southeast Asia’s stunning beaches that offer a serene escape from the bustling tourist spots.

TripZilla’s “12 Secret Beaches in Southeast Asia You Probably Didn’t Know About” named Cresta de Gallo in Romblon (No. 2) and Morong Beach in Batanes (No. 7) in a best-of-list of hidden gems throughout Southeast Asia.

According to TripZilla, “Cresta de Gallo, a sandbar in the province of Romblon, is a mystery — even to those who have been living in this country for their entire lives.”

To reach this hidden gem, travelers need to catch the 6 am to 8 am ferry from Romblon to Sibuyan Island, then rent a pump boat at the port in San Fernando Town.

But the journey is worth it, as visitors will be greeted by crystal clear waters and sugar-white sand. The atmosphere is so tranquil and surreal that a few hours can feel like stepping on sacred ground.

Located on Sabtang Island, one of the three inhabited islands in the Province of Batanes, Morong Beach is a small strip of powdery white sand backed by low verdant rolling hills.

The weather remains warm, despite being situated up north. The beach offers a unique getaway for travelers seeking an off-the-beaten-path destination in the Philippines.

Visitors can bask in the sun, go picnicking by the shore, or take a photo at the iconic Nakabuang Arch for social media.

The inclusion of Romblon and Batanes in the list of 12 Secret Beaches in Southeast Asia written by Andrea Larice Yap and Tiffany Conde published on April 14, 2023, highlights the beauty and charm of these two island provinces. With their pristine landscapes, crystal-clear waters, and unspoiled beaches, they are a must-visit for beach lovers looking for a unique vacation experience. So why not add them to your travel bucket list and discover the hidden treasures of the Philippines?

TripZilla also previously named two beaches in Boracay among the best in Asia for summer travel.
