Dubbed as the ‘Pearl of the Orient Sea’ by Spanish missionaries during the 1700s, the Philippines showcases an overwhelming amount of natural beauty. The Spanish influence is obvious and pervasive, but American culture is surprisingly evident as well. With numerous options available, first-time visitors may find it daunting to tackle a destination that is ranked as the 7th country with the most number of islands in the world — 7,641 in total the last time they were counted! With that in mind, don’t forget to check out ‘Pearl of the Orient Sea’ — Avanti’s recently-released resource, The Philippines: Pearl of the Orient e-Brochure.
This select itinerary, Secrets of Siargao, focuses on the teardrop-shaped Philippine island famed for its idyllic atmosphere, gorgeous white-sand beaches, coral reefs, warm local hospitality, and superb surf breaks. Celebrities like rockstar Anthony Kiedis and surf legend Kelly Slater are enthusiastic fans of Siargao’s barrelling waves and local scene. With increased global attention, the once unknown ‘Surfing Capital of the Philippines’ is now regarded as one of the top island destinations in the world! After taking in the exhilarating swells of Cloud 9 — Siargao’s most challenging surf break — your clients will embark on an amazing island-hopping experience that covers three awe-inspiring places: Daku, Guyam, and Naked Island. They can then proceed to explore the rest of Siargao’s hot spots, including the popular Magpupungko Rock Pools — an attraction that only reveals itself when the tides are low.
