The Philippines. What makes this archipelago unique? Believe it or not, this country boasts of 7,107 islands (we’re not kidding!). Other than the major islands namely Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, the best islands to venture are the smaller ones. If Philippines could come alive, Marinduque would be its beating heart. The best time to go is during Lenten Season, especially during summer months from March to May. Uncover some of these breathtaking tropical paradises found right in this Marinduque beach guide.

Marinduque is home to arrowroot cookies, the Battle of Pulang Lupa, and of course, the much anticipated Moriones Festival. We have heard plenty of great things of this place, including a zero to very low crime rate. Marinduque welcomes all solo travelers, too! If you’re planning a trip to this special place soon, you might want to bookmark this Marinduque beach guide to make the most out of your trip, especially if you are visiting this Holy Week!

Nestled in Gasan, Aroma Beach is absolutely a sight to behold. It’s not very often that it gets visited by a flock of tourists. Problems seem to float away when you’ve got transparent waters reflecting the vast blueness of the open skies. Away from hints of modernization, you can truly feel the essence of nature right at your fingertips. Camp out, build a bonfire, and feel free to stay a night or two. Savor those precious moments with nature because you’ll never know when you’ll return again.

How to get there: At Lucena Port in Quezon, ride a ferry going to Mongpong (shorter route instead of Santa Cruz). Then, take any public transportation headed for Gasan.  Read More:



Maniwaya Island Beach

Maniwaya Island is part of the town of Sta Cruz in Marinduque and is less than an hour of boat ride away from the main island. It is surprisingly undeveloped with only a handful of resorts lined along its shores of rough coral stones and white sugary sands. Its water is teeming with life although negative effects of cyanide and dynamite fishing in the past are still very much evident in one too many dead corals scattered in its ocean floor. Its rustic vibe and tranquil state are its most redeeming qualities. Plus, it is totally off the path and uncrowded so you are guaranteed to have that patch of sand to frolic under the sun with for that much needed tan.  Read More:

Ulong beach is open for local and foreign tourist, if you want to go there you must bring your own food because they don’t have any food store or restaurant near in the beach, but they have sari-sari store and you can easy to buy prepaid load for your mobile. Ulong Beach is not really crowded even weekend, and the water is very clear and not so cold. It’s nice to swim and enjoy strolling along the seaside and capturing moments with your camera. Ulong beach is facing in to the nortwest, and if you like to experience the sunset you must stay in the beach until 7 PM to see the beautiful sunset. If you plan to visit Marinduque, from Manila, take the bus going to Lucena City Pier (Dalahican).  Travel time is almost 5 hours including traffic and from Lucena City Pier you travel again by shipping lines bound to Marinduque Island for 2 hours. But if you want to spend vacation to Marinduque for immediate access to the Island its better you travel by Plane with Zest Air or some other local airlines or try to visit some travel agencies on the Internet for more info.    Read More:
