Two prominent Philippine beaches entered the ranks of an international travel website’s list of top 25 beaches in Asia. Boracay Island’s White Beach and El Nido Palawan’s Nacpan Beach were ranked 12th and 18th, respectively, by TripAdvisor.
The review on Boracay’s White Beach read: “Calm, warm waters, gently sloping sand. Very relaxing. Possibly the most beautiful beach in Asia.”
For El Nido Palawan’s Nacpan Beach, TripAdvisor declared: “A long coastline, golden sand, beautiful crystal waters and a completely virgin landscape make a visit to this place unforgettable!”
The international travel website said the list was drawn based on the responses of travelers and tourists.
Agonda Beach in Goa in southwest India took the top spot in the list, followed by India’s Cavellosim Beach, which is less than 30 kilometers away. In third is Myanmar’s Ngapali Beach, followed by Kelingking Beach on Nusa Penida Island in Bali, Indonesia.
