The Philippines is riched with so many beautiful islands and beaches: we have Cebu, Palawan, Bohol, Boracay, and so many more. In fact, both local and foreign tourists keep discovering and re-discovering more and more beautiful beaches all over the country. So, If you’re an adventurous beach seeker willing to go far, get lost and to experience a piece of solitude you have long dreamed of, then I highly suggest adding these 5 remote Philippine beaches on your bucket list.

Bugsuk Island, Balabac, Palawan

The Island is raw, remote and unspoiled, It is dotted with mangroves and serves as a playground for wild monkeys. If you are lucky enough, you’ll chance upon mousedeers that occasionally stroll along the shore. These mousedeers live in the woods in the interior of the island.There are no electricity, no restaurants, no stable phone signal, no luxurious villas, nothing. Just paradise.

Saluag Island, Sibutu, Tawi-Tawi

Are you looking for a serene and relaxing getaway island where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city? If you are, you’ll surely want to visit Sibutu, Tawi-Tawi. It might not be as famous as the well-known tourist spots in the Philippines like Boracay, Baguio, and El Nido, however, it offers a calm and peaceful ambiance for those with weary hearts and stressed-out minds.

Olanivan Island, Sarangani, Davao Occidental

Located at the south-central edge of Mindanao, close to the maritime border with Indonesia, Olanivan is surely a remote island where one could enjoy a long stretch of white powdery beach without worrying about the crowd. A stay to Olanivan will not only let you feel serenity in isolation, it will also introduce you to the interesting lifestyle of the B’laan tribe who consider this paradise as their home.

Omapuy Island, Sitangkai, Tawi-Tawi

An island bounded by seaweed farms located in the turquoise to emerald green sea. Adding charm to the island is a number of stilt houses seemingly floating over the shallow waters. Omapuy is indeed one of the beaches that can be tagged as raw and pristine. The long and wide stretch of white powdery sand beach is a world of wonder to any beach-lover. Also, it is a great place to watch the sunset on this side of the Philippines.

Onuk Island, Balabac, Palawan


Onuk Island which is formerly known as Roughton Island, is a hidden paradise that’s now taking the limelight for its crystal clear waters and its white sand beaches. It’s a great destination for rest and relaxation, and the calm waters make it a great place for swimming. This is the perfect getaway island – no internet connection, unreliable cell phone signal, and electricity is limited.
