Today we will talk about magical sunsets in the Philippines. The main reason why tourists come to the Philippines is to explore their beautiful island and beaches. For us when traveling in the Philippines our favorite part of the day is enjoying Philippine sunsets. There are many special and popular like White Beach in Boracay and Port Barton. But we will discover for you other sunsets not so popular in the Philippines.
Best time to visit the Philippines
The rainy season starts around May until October, strongest months are July, August and September. Well if you are coming during the rainy season, it’ll be raining a couple of days during the day but you will usually see the sun almost everyday. I would avoid those rainy months if I can, but no worries you will find sunny days and it will be less crowded in some places that you visit in the Philippines.
Sunsets in the Philippines
1. White Beach Boracay Island
How beautiful are the sunsets in Boracay Island. One of our favorite sunsets in the Philippines. White Beach is located from Station 3 to Station 1. It’s crowded but so beautiful the colors.

9. Mount Tapyas Coron
After a nice walk, the tour can be done in 1-2 hours and it’s free with no entrance fee. It will take around 20-30 minutes to go up not too much too see the best is going direct to the top in our opinion and enjoying the views and the sunset there.
