Couples who have been together for a long time and those who have just started dating both appreciate Valentine’s Day.

Because Valentine’s Day is a day of love and passion, you and your significant other should do something special in 2020. As a result, I’ve compiled a list of the most romantic Valentine’s Day destinations in the Philippines.

Spending a lot of time debating which destinations to add on my list and chose to go with areas that are more laid-back than adventurous. Relaxing by the pool or on the sand at the beach, in my opinion, has a more romantic vibe to it than canyoning or white water rafting.

Then, of course, if you’re short on time, I’ve listed several destinations that are a little further away for those who have a few nights to spare. Some of the top destinations in the Philippines are unquestionably on my final list.

Batanes Islands

Go to the Batanes Islands for a genuinely spectacular Valentine’s Day. In the Philippines, Batanes is unlike anything else. For starters, it is the Philippines’ least populated province and an archipelago province.

Nonetheless, and perhaps as a result of this, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular tourist spots in the Philippines. You can start your day off with a visit to some of the most impressive lighthouses you’ve ever seen in your lifetime. Batan Island, Basco, and Sabtang are among them.

The Basco lighthouse, which also serves as a chapel, is the most spectacular of the three. You can also spend a day on the island of Sabtang. In addition to the lighthouse, you can enjoy the beautiful beaches and then visit one of the traditional towns on the island.

Despite the fact that Vigan is a city in the Philippines, some areas of it make you feel as if you’re in Spain. You’ll witness Spanish architecture all across the city.

You and your companion can spend time in Vigan doing things like shopping in Crisologo, visiting the Syquia Mansion Museum, or making pottery at the RG Jaw Factory.

You may also drive a horse-drawn carriage throughout town and take in all of the Spanish architecture to add to the romantic feel. This will just add to the romantic atmosphere because of the place’s overall Spanish/European flair.

In the province of Batangas, Laiya offers some of the nicest white sand beaches in the vicinity of Manila. But before you get too excited about the fact that Laiya is in Batangas and near Taal Volcano, it’s worth noting that Laiya is really farther away from Taal Volcano than Manila is.

In the neighborhood, you’ll find a lot of luxury resorts, hotels, restaurants, and other things to do. Laiya is sure to please no matter what you’re looking for.

City of Iloilo

Iloilo City may be a good option if you’re looking for something different. This Valentine’s Day, you might want to consider staying in Iloilo, which is regarded as the “city of love.”

For some riverfront dining, head down to the Iloilo River Esplanade. Make a day out of it to take a stroll about the city and take in the interesting architecture.

You can also go to the Camina Balay Nga Bato, which is a house museum with a lot of great antiques and food on display.

Head to Smallville, Iloilo’s entertainment district, if you want to eat at some great restaurants and shake your tail feathers. Here you’ll discover a lot of wonderful places to dine, live music, bars, and so on.

El Nido

For the most romantic resorts in the Philippines, El Nido is the place to go. Miniloc, for example, is a resort where the rooms are small cottages on waterside stilts.

Another interesting and lovely spot to stay is the Tapik Beach Park Guest House, where you may sleep while listening to the waves. The El Nido Mahogany Beach Resort in Corong-Corong is another resort.

Staying at any of those three romantic resorts is a no-brainer. You will not be disappointed, whether you just want to relax at the resort or go island hopping to some beautiful beaches and lagoons.

Island of Boracay

Recently, the island of Boracay has been in the news a lot. After being closed for six months, this island was reopened to the public in October of last year, and it has done a fantastic job of recovering!

Because of the new laws, visitor numbers are limited, but if you can obtain flights and lodging, you and your loved one will have one of the most romantic Valentine’s Days ever.

There’s little doubt that Boracay’s white beach is one of the nicest in the world, and it’s still in great shape after a six-month closure!

Hidden Valley Springs

Look no further than Hidden Valley Springs if you want to spend time with your lover in a genuinely exceptional setting.

Walking along magnificent hiking routes that lead to waterfalls and natural rock pools through the planted rainforest will be a joy for you. The resort’s lovely scenery and villas, as well as the delicious meals, will enchant you.

If you’re short on time, this is ideal for a one-night trip.

Bottom line

Going to select romantic locations is one method to make your Valentine’s Day special. Allowing them to experience the diverse ambiance for the two of you is one method to make him/her special in a variety of ways.
