Pick a surf resort in the Philippines and you will truly be on Cloud 9. Celebrated as being one of the friendliest countries in the world, the Philippines is a postcard vision comprising thousands of tropical islands, a rich archipelago, and world-class surf breaks rolling in across the typhoon swell sea. While the surf conditions can be scattered, there is plenty to keep wayfarers well entertained when not riding giants. Aside from idyllic beach life on silver slips of sand, you can dive in deep shimmering lagoons, kayak the wild and untapped waters of North Palawan, wander around cascading rice terraces, and for a slice of skyscraping city action – dive into Manila.
While Cloud 9 is the big name on the block when it comes to surfing in the Philippines there are still plenty of pockets and corners that offer beautiful barrels, clean breaks, and Pacific perfection. The swell period isn’t always consistent, something to bear in mind when picking your time to travel. Between the months of October to May is when you will find those steep sided belters rolling into shore. Water temperatures are warm and as a destination that is just starting to pulsate on the saltwater radar – the breaks are yet to become overcrowded. If you find yourself sharing waves too often, you can always head out to one of the thousands of islands to claim your own.
A world of warmth that goes beyond the water is waiting for you in the Philippines. For those seeking sculpted tropical landscapes, waves that thunder, and an enchanting culture – the Philippines is the place.
