4. Batanes

Known for its rugged landscapes, rolling hills, and picturesque coastlines, Batanes offers a dramatic and romantic setting for a proposal. Propose at the picturesque Marlboro Hills, the scenic Sabtang Island, or the secluded shores of Morong Beach for a truly memorable moment.


5. Intramuros - Manila

For couples who appreciate history and culture, Intramuros, Manila's historic walled city, offers charming cobblestone streets, Spanish colonial architecture, and historic landmarks. Propose at Fort Santiago, San Agustin Church, or Plaza San Luis Complex for a romantic and historic setting.


6. Siargao

Known as the surfing capital of the Philippines, Siargao also offers pristine beaches, crystal-clear lagoons, and laid-back vibes. Propose at the beautiful Sugba Lagoon, the secluded Daku Island, or the serene shores of Guyam Island for a romantic beach proposal.


7. Chocolate Hills - Bohol

The Chocolate Hills are a natural wonder in Bohol, consisting of thousands of conical hills covered in green grass that turns brown during the dry season, resembling chocolate kisses. Propose at one of the viewpoints overlooking the Chocolate Hills, with the breathtaking landscape as your backdrop. 


Romantic Destinations in the Philippines

The Philippines are full of romantic beaches, islands and volcanoes. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, at a spectacular beach, or on a beautiful island.


8. Mayon Volcano - Albay

Mayon Volcano is renowned for its perfect cone shape and stunning beauty. Propose at one of the viewpoints around the volcano, such as Cagsawa Ruins, for a dramatic and romantic setting with the majestic volcano in the background.

Near the town of Farallón, Playa Blanca features some of the whitest sands and clearest waters on the Pacific side of Panama. It's a popular destination, offering high-end resorts where you could plan a more luxurious proposal.
