Regions in the Philippines

  • Bohol & Panglao

    For nature and adventure lovers Bohol is a beautiful natural island, covered with jungle clad mountains, rice paddies and scattered with charming local villages. At its heart are the famous Chocolate Hills, a unique collection of hills so called as in the dry season they turn brown and resemble Hershey’s Kisses! Enjoy a day tour to see the smallest primates in the world – Tarsiers, cute little creatures about the size of a squirrel with huge eyes, cruise down the river observing local life along its banks, see how rice is grown and walk amongst the chocolate hills. The more adventurous can even join an ATV tour amongst this unique scenery or zip wire through the trees.

  • Boracay

    Boracay is one of the best known islands and most popular islands of the Philippines due to its four kilometre white sand beach which is lined with hotels, restaurants and bars. The sand is so powder soft it squeeks between your toes and it is pure white, the sea turquoise - great for snorkelling and also diving. Whilst it is a busy little island it also has a unique charm and is not tacky or spoilt – it is fun and vibrant and perfect for those looking to include a bit of nightlife in their holiday. There are some really great restaurants right on the sand and the outdoor shopping malls have a great choice of boutique shops and quaint little side alleys with hidden coffee shops and local bars.

  • Cebu

    Cebu is one of the largest islands in the Visayas region, a collection of hundreds of islands in the centre of The Philippines, world renowned for diving, snorkelling and soft adventure. The island of Cebu is one of the major international gateways and often the starting point for a Turquoise Holiday to the Philippines, with direct flights from Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.  You might stop off here before flying on to a remote island resort or taking the ferry over to its neighbour Bohol. However Cebu is a melting pot of fun with the locals always up for a celebration. The island is famous for its Spanish guitars and you’ll hear lovely music everywhere you go – Cebu hosts the Philippines biggest Mardi Gras on the 3rd Sunday in January and it is really worth spending a few days to soak up the atmosphere. Make sure you try their local delicacy, roasted pig – or Lechon – always part of any celebration or festival and served nightly at the Shangri-La hotel.

  • Manila

    The metropolis of Manila, widely known as Metro Manila, encompasses 16 cities, including the country’s city capital Manila. There are plenty of airlines flying in and out of Manila, however it is sometimes necessary to include an overnight in the city before flying out to The Philippines idyllic islands, due to the domestic flight schedules. Turquoise Holidays recommends staying in the city of Makati, known for its upscale malls, and lively social scene, with a great choice of bars and restaurants. It is also home to Ayala Museum, which is well worth a visit for those interested in the history of The Philippines.

  • Palawan

    Palawan is a collection of islands in the west of the Philippines, includes the island of Coron and El Nido, both famous for their impressive limestone karst scenery, azure lagoons and amazing snorkelling and diving – it has been voted the most beautiful islands in the world by Conde Nast and we can see why. Stay in one of the resorts tucked away within the bays and coves of this dramatic landscape – this is the part of your holiday where you’ll feel castaway in a remote hideaway retreat. 

  • Siargao

    Siargao is a small teardrop-shaped island 800 kilometers south of Manila at the northeastern tip of Mindanao in the east of The Philippines. This is a remote, totally under-the-radar nature lover’s paradise, traditionally known as the surfing capital of the Philippines with its strong swells, particularly in September. Beyond the surf it has plenty to offer from pristine, quiet beaches, exotic wildlife, coral reefs, secluded natural pools, underground caves, world-renowned sport fishing and diving, exquisite seafood, lively nightlife and more.
