Hundreds Island, Philippines

islands

We know how difficult it is to choose which of the 7,107 islands to explore first. But if you’d like to hit roughly 100 islands in all at once, the Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos is the place to go.

Head to Don Gonzalo Montemayor wharf in Barangay Lucap and rent an outrigger or two. This is the quintessential island hop, where you’ll be visiting islands of all shapes and sizes. Some simply look like little pieces of land. Others have intact cave systems and hilly terrain; fantastic for all-out hiking and camping.Governor’s Island has a viewing deck, and even a small house that can be rented.
There are 123 islands covering 1,844 hectares. Many of them have attention-grabbing names such as “Devil’s Island” and“Kissing Island.” And of course, like the rest of the country, the water is an exceptional hue of blue-green and holds fantastic coral reefs. Don’t forget to pack your bathing suit!
