Take a well-deserved R&R this holiday season

With traffic building up and gatherings being held left and right, sometimes all you’re looking for at the end of the day is some peace and quiet. In contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city, the Philippines takes pride in its tranquil and picturesque provinces.

The Philippines’ newest boutique airline Sunlight Air flies to various domestic hotspots daily with its fleet of ATR 72-500s. Check out some of Sunlight Air’s top destinations.

  San Vicente, Palawan

Home to the longest white sand beach in the country and majestic coral reefs, San Vicente offers its visitors a more laid-back version of the Palawan. With its abundance of waterfalls, mangroves and forests, there is a plethora of activities to enjoy all around.

Visitors can stop by Starfish Island, wherein one can make friends with some starfish in shallow waters or go snorkeling through a 70-hectare coral reef on Naonao Beach. After basking in picturesque waters, go on a trek to Bigaho Waterfalls and Pamuayan Falls, hidden against the mountains of Port Barton.

If you’re looking to spend a vacation exploring life’s natural wonders, then the budding destination of San Vicente is definitely the place to be this Christmas.


The province of Camiguin is a tiny but mighty one. Recognized as the second smallest province in the Philippines, this destination is ideal for adventure seekers. Camiguin has various mountains and a whopping seven volcanoes. You can go on a hike up the tallest and most prominent peak, Mt. Tipoong, and experience basking in its waterfalls at the base or hike up Mt. Vulcan — or the Old Volcano — and visit the awe-inspiring Sunken Cemetery.

If you’re not one for hiking up mountains, Camiguin is also home to an abundance of hot springs. To the side of the famous Hibok-hibok Volcano, you’ll find a relaxing and stunning hot spring tucked into a tropical forest. Enjoy a relaxing dip as you marvel at stunning views that look straight out of a movie.


If you’re looking for somewhere to ride the waves, Siargao is the place to go. The tiny teardrop-shaped island is located at the northeastern coast of Mindanao and is widely known as the Surfing Capital of the Philippines.

While there are many spots for surfing, visitors should not miss out on Siargao’s other natural wonders. A visit to caves like Hagukan Cave, Magkuku-ob Cave and Crystal Cave found in Sohoton National Park are bound to be worthwhile and memorable experiences. The waters at Haguken Cave appear to be luminescent when splashed and cliff-diving is definitely not off the menu at Magkuku-ob Cave leaving you with nothing short of a unique adventure.

If you’re really looking to get into cliff-diving, another place to visit is the Magpupungko Rock Pools. Best enjoyed during the low-tide, visitors are treated to azure waters and one-of-a-kind rock formations. In between diving off of nearby cliffs, you can also visit nearby caves surrounding the tidal pools.

Siargao is full of wonders both well-known, and well-hidden. Explore a different side of Siargao on your next visit this holiday season.

For your Christmas vacation to be successful, you’ll definitely need to travel to these destinations in comfort and style.
