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!  Read More:


Poctoy White Sand Beach


Photo from:


Facing the Sibuyan Sea, the waves are not so big and strong – kids will surely enjoy swimming; the beach area is wide – simply perfect for beach sports. The amazing view from the beach of the province’s highest peak, The Mt. Malindig, is also a superb addition!

TRAVEL NOTES: Poctoy White Beach is a public beach. You have to pay the entrance fee. Renting of cottage and camping is allowed. There are no restaurants in the area, only karinderya and sari sari-stores. From time to time, fishermen are docking in the beach area with fresh-caught seafood/fishes like yellow fin, dorado, galunggong, sardines, and squids. You can buy and ask the canteen owners to cook for you – for a cheap cooking charge.  Read More:



Palad Sandbar

Travelers are not only looking for white sand and crystal water in a beautiful island, they are also searching for sandbar, a bar of sand formed in a sea or river by the action of tides or currents. One of the stunning sand bars in the Philippines is can be found near Maniwaya Island in the province  of Marinduque. It is called Palad Sandbar.
Palad Sandbar is one of a kind places for outdoor enthusiasts and beach lovers. It features powdery white sands that flush through the crystal clear waters, which  appears during low tide. It’s advisable to go here in the morning when the tide is usually low. You can reach sandbar via a 30-minute boat ride  from Maniwaya.  Read more:


Mongpong Island Beach

From a distance, Mongpong looked like any other island in the province. It was even clear from my vantage point on the boat that a beach strip of of the island has the same fine, white sand as Maniwaya. The boatman informed me that there’s currently no resort operating there, so the lone resort that I learned to have operated there probably closed down already. Or maybe he’s just misinformed.  Read More:
