There are so many things you can do in Subic. From tiger feeding to dolphin watching to shopping! It’s the best all-in-one destination for couples who don’t only want to indulge in luxurious resorts, but also explore city life.

5. Boracay


Others might say that Boracay is overrated, but it really isn’t. Although there have been arguments about the island being overcrowded, it makes a good honeymoon destination for those who want that ultimate beach getaway. I suggest staying a bit longer so you can try the water activities and also have enough time for some peace and quiet in a tucked away resort. Don’t forget to eat fresh seafoods at D’Talipapa.

I feel like San Jose, Mindoro does not get enough attention in the travel world. Think Maldives but a less costly alternative. Grace Island Resort has floating cottages that resemble those romantic ocean villas in Maldives. It’s definitely worth checking out. Plus, I heard the food is great too.

9. Pearl Farm Beach Resort, Davao

Another noteworthy resort for that special honeymoon is Pearl Farm in Davao. Pearl Farm also has beach front rooms, an infinity pool overlooking a beautiful view, and other wellness facilities. The best part for me was the food. I cannot even begin to describe to you how amazing their buffets are.
