Planning to explore the Philippine’s hidden wonders and enchanting getaway destinations? May this ultimate Philippine travel bucket list help you fill up your check list:
1. Check Out the Scenic Rock Formations at Biri Island
Biri Island in Samar is known for its breathtaking landscape thanks to the intricately shaped rock formations sculpted by the waves. Truly an idyllic sight to behold, the view from here immediately transports you to the rock formations in Tanah Lot, Bali, where you can just sit calmly and watch the sea from a distance.
When to Visit: The best time to visit Biri Island is during dry months (March – May). It may get hot, but a little heat is better than the prospect of getting stranded on the island during -ber months!
Pro-Tip: Make sure to fully charge your batteries and cameras! This place is too scenic that you wouldn’t want to stop taking photos.
