Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores.
However, if one will just look around more, they will find that there are other less-known but equally beautiful beach spots in other parts of the Philippines.
In Pagadian, in particular, there are beaches and islands that will make one believe that there is such a thing as a secluded paradise on Earth.
A nice place to start would be the Dao-Dao Islands some seven to ten minutes away from the seaport, when riding a motorboat.
During low tides, a smaller, more undeveloped island appears and like the rest, is also suitable for fishing and swimming.
