The Philippines is an archipelago in South-East Asia. The nation consists of 7,107 islands located between the Philippine Sea and the South China Sea, east of Vietnam, and north of Sabah and Borneo, combine all its beaches it forms one of the world's longest coastlines and it takes about 2 to 3 decades to visit and experience every island. Since Spanish colonial times, the country is considered to be Asia's largest Catholic country. Over a hundred ethnic groups, a mixture of foreign influences and a fusion of culture and arts have enhanced the uniqueness of the Filipino identity and the wonder that is the Philippines.

The Philippines is known as “the only Christian country in Asia.“ It is also touted to be “the Pearl of the Orient Seas” (although the Japanese also use that phrase to describe their own country). It was rediscovered by Ferdinand Magellan on March 16, 1521. Why rediscovered? Because before the Portuguese explorer came, the country already had its own civilization. The inhabitants were already trading with other Asian peoples such as those from China, India, Japan, and the Malay Archipelago.

The Philippines has a tropical maritime climate and is usually hot and humid. There are three seasons: tag-init or tag-araw, the hot dry season or summer from March to May; tag-ulan, the rainy season from June to November; and tag-lamig, the cool dry season from December to February.

 

The phrase “Life is a beach“ must have been created for Filipinos. With a coastline of 26,289 kilometers (almost twice that of the United States), the Philippines has the third longest combined coastlines in the planet (after Canada and Indonesia). From the stormy seas of Batanes to the emerald isles of Palawan, life’s truly a beach over here. Boracay in Panay Island is known globally as having one of the world’s finest beach resorts.
