Wherever you go around the country, whether it is to a beach or just another tourist spot, a vast number of people always populate the place. It becomes aggravating rather than exciting when you can’t even manage to relax because a certain spot is overcrowded.

Luckily, the Philippines is very blessed because of its thousands of islands which also means never running out of new places to visit. Because of this, we listed 5 new attractions in the Philippines everyone must visit. Hurry up before it gets crowded!

Aqua Park in Taal Lake

This aqua park is located in Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas and is only a 2-hour drive from Manila. Aqua Park in Taal Lake is composed of different water slides and a mini trampoline that floats along the shore of freshwater lake.

What makes it more exciting is that it has the tallest water slide in the Philippines. Tourists need to climb up on it to see the perfect view of Mt. Taal before they drop themselves to the slide. But before tagging the kids along, be informed that Aqua Park in Taal Lake is only allowed for 15 years old and above.

Manjuyod Sandbar

People are still wondering how it feels to visit and stay in a place where they can wake up to crystal clear water and fine sandbars.

Thus, Manjuyod Sandbar is named as the ‘Maldives of the Philippines’ because of its bluish hues of sand and scattered nipa cottages that is known to see in Maldives. Furthermore, Manjuyod Sandbar is a picture-perfect when it’s low tide as the sand is most visible from 5 am to 10 am.

Aside from the water adventure that Inflatable Island gives, it has colorful cottages for guests who want to just watch the view and float around on candy-colored flamingo lifebuoy that suits Instagram-worthy shots.

Tinuy-An Falls

Tinuy-An Falls is a must-see for people living in Mindanao region as it is located in Surigao Del Sur. But, its beauty will leave anyone in awe and will undeniably attract tourists regardless of its location.

The sound of the rushing falls while eating beside its native cottages or while riding a bamboo raft gives the ultimate relaxing ambiance to visitors. A number of tourists called Tinuy-An Falls as the ‘Niagara Falls of the Philippines’ because of its undeniable resemblance.

A majestic beauty is hiding 🙂

Lake Sebu

Lake Sebu is the most wonderful way of discovering South Cotabato as well as the culture of Ubo and T’Boli tribes. A ride at its signature boats give an extraordinary experience while glancing at the utmost clear water.

A relaxing tour at Lake Sebu is then followed by a thrilling ride at the zipline. Believe it or not, the zipline in Lake Sebu is the most jaw-dropping one in the country. In addition, witness the 7 falls located around the area to complete an entire South Cotabato experience.

Cambugahay Falls

Cambugahay Falls is the top-suggested place in Siquijor. No need to worry for an exhausting trek because a 10-minute walk will do. Waters are clear and everyone can jump at the highest falls as long as they ask assistance from tour guides.

Also, Tarzan swing is provided for visitors who wants to put a little bit of thrill on their stay. It is located at the third tier falls and most of the people swarmed in this one because apparently, this is the deepest and biggest among the three. And for some who wants a peaceful atmosphere, the two waterfalls above is there haven.
