If you don’t have a lot of time to go somewhere far, Nagsasa Cove is a great option close to Manila. It’s frequented by other campers but the awesome view from the beach and the mountains close by make it extremely romantic.

Camping fee is around ₱100 per person, which includes free use of cottages and use of the shower rooms.

3. Anawangin Cove, Zambales

Another beautiful campsite you can get away to in Zambales is Anawangin Cove. The beach used to be rocky but it has been dumped with mountains of volcanic ash from the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. It turned out to be quite beautiful, though. And you also get to camp under a forest of agoho trees which pretty much look like pine trees.

Camping fee is pegged at ₱100 a night.

4. Port Barton, Palawan

Dahican’s long coastline means you have a lot of options to pitch your tent on, depending on your budget. It basically feels like Boracay except it has a thinner crowd and you get to skim, surf and snorkel all you want.

Menzi Beach Park is just one of the most affordable yet romantic campsites in the Philippines you can head to, for as low as ₱50 per head.

8. Mount Pinatubo, Zambales

Mount Pinatubo is considered as one of the most dangerous treks to a mountain in the entire world because it still is an active volcano. Don’t worry, though — it is being closely monitored and tours here are well-organised.

Day tour package rates: From ₱1,700-₱6,000 per person depending on inclusions

Iloilo’s “Little Baguio” actually started as a reforestation project decades ago. Now, it has turned into a beautiful mini forest of pine trees resulting to cooler temperatures in the area. Aside from camping there, you and your significant other can also trek a few minutes to get to the Mansiga Natural View Deck and share the beautiful view.

You can sleep under the trees in Leon, Iloilo for ₱250 a night.

11. Eco Saddle Camp, Laguna

Eco-Saddle Camp, Laguna

This secret getaway in Laguna is best known for the campsite right by the famous Lake Caliraya. However, if camping is not something for you, you can always try the floating cottage — and wake up to a breathtaking view right beside the someone you love. 😉

The floating cottage costs ₱5,000 per night or you can camp for free and just pay for the ₱80-per-head overnight entrance fee, charged by the barangay.
