Hi there. We are a family of 4 wanting to visit the Philippines, traveling from Singapore. We have 5/6 days to play with. I have spent hours trawling through the useful advice that's on TA but I am still confused and wonder if anyone can help please!
We ideally would like to stay somewhere with a great beach and great snorkeling. Medium to lower budget ie. we are not on honeymoon and can't afford those lovely resorts! Borocay and Panglao (?) sound a little too busy for us. So I have been looking at Palawan. Both Coron and El Nido offer great beach and snorkeling opportunities but often people seem to have to stay at these places and travel out on day trips to the great beaches.... Is there any island we could travel to, from which we could still make the day trips as well as just exploring the island itself? ... Or what about Malapascua? Thanks!
