Beaches in the Provinces

Region 4-B has the greatest number of beaches. That’s not surprising, considering that it’s made up of island provinces: Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan. If we narrow it down to province, though, Misamis Oriental takes the top spot, with its abundance of 42 beaches (as well as rivers and springs).

Choose your favorite, and visit these uniquely vibrant beaches.
