10 day travel itinerary help

My boyfriend and I are planning a last minute 10-day trip to the Philippines. We haven't done much research, but wondering if anyone has some itinerary suggestions to get us started.

We love the outdoors (hiking/trekking, etc) but also want time to relax on the beach.

Any thought starters/suggestions are welcome!

@ NY Travel Bug...

1) Hiking trekking... The good places I can think of are... Rice terraces Banaue, Self guided treks in Baguio, Pamulaklakin trek in Subic, Self guided treks in Bohol (Bamboo forest). Just do a google image search for these and you will get their detals. For Pamulaklakin trail, see …blogspot.com/2012/11/pamulaklakin.html

2) Beautiful beaches... oh... there are so many.... but since you would have spent 5 days for the former, would recommend Bohol Alona beach (easy to reach) / Bohol Balicasag island / Cebu Nalusuan resort

Or you could visit Potipot island - …blogspot.com/2012/07/candelaria-and-potipot…

Potipot (or ratehr Candellaria) is in the same large island (Luzon) as Banaue so you don't need to take any flights to reach there (unlike the other places suggested above). Potipot island has absolutely "talcum powder fine" white sand, is very clean, has hardly any tourists. See the photos here to decide - …blogspot.com/2012/07/candelaria-and-potipot…

Hi James, Is going to Mt Pinatubo a possible day trip from Manila or is an overnight required? Thanks.

Day trip will suffice.

Park authority usually does not allow overnight camping at the crater.

@ Enterprising

1) Pinatubo trips are almost always one day affairs - starting from Manila early morning (before sunrise).

2) They reach Capas (Tarlac) at around 6:30 am, departing around that time - taking advantage of the less hot weather early morning.
