I've flown regularly to the Philippines - my second home - since I was 9 months old and while I've seen many absolutely stunning places, Mantigue Island is my undisputed favorite spot to date. The sand is like powdered sugar, the water crystal clear, and the natives who manage the island, the surrounding waters and the small forest upon it could not be any friendlier. Yes, tourists do end up here, but in the time that we spent there I never felt crowded or bothered in any way. It may be a small place, but it has surprisingly much to offer (just follow the sun around the island if you want a killer tan, go snorkeling or scuba diving when you get restless, and order some grilled fish when you get hungry). A 15 minute boat ride from Camiguin, this is a treasure that shouldn't be missed.
