Guide to the Philippines

A picture-perfect archipelago

Brimming with astounding beaches, intriguing tribal cultures and volcanic landscapes, this vast archipelago offers a plethora of things to do and sights to be seen. Boasting a myriad of tropical islands, this exotic destination is idyllic for a yacht charter rich in rural retreats and stunning natural beauty.

Stretching over 7,000 islands, the Philippines is the second largest archipelago in the world. Surrounded by crystalline waters and an abundance of water sports activities, the island-chain is a popular charter location with exhilarating opportunities for diving, snorkelling and shark swimming. From quaint fishing villages to chic urban areas, the islands of the Philippines host an astounding mirage of sights with each destination offering an unforgettable charter experience.

No visit to this stunning archipelago would be complete without a visit to the capital of Manila. The bustling capital welcomes an influx of people and boasts a collection of towns with no true city centre. There are a small handful of towns who have tried to fill the void of Manila’s cultural epicentre such as Quiapo, Ermita and Binondo.

Essentially market towns, Quiapo and Binondo are brimmed with a vibrant energy and an array of market stalls which are ideal for shopping and sampling local cuisine. Ermita and Malate are both packed full of bars and clubs which will appeal to the night owls and party goers of any charter party. The commercial centre of the country is Makati, boasting boutiques and first class restaurants; Makati exudes a modernity which makes for an idyllic location for shopping lovers. Known as the ‘summer capital’ of the Philippines, Baguio is a haven for sun worshippers with a plethora of manicured parks, and outstanding views making for an astounding summer location.

As a result of 350 years under Spanish rule, the influence of Spanish culture is palpable from the exuberant town fiestas to the unique Spanish-Filipino colonial architecture. Discover the breathtaking volcanic landscape of the Luzon Island and admire the spectacular rice terraces of Banaue, often regarded as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’. There is so much to do here that each and every visitor will undoubtedly feel captivated.

The relentlessly upbeat energy of the Filipino people makes for a warm and welcoming visit with their friendly charm guaranteed to ensnare every visitor. Whether you’re looking for a chic vacation laced with luxuries or a tranquil break full of peace and quiet, the Philippines has something to suit every visitor.
